I signed up to this site a year ago, Scampless, and we JUST found our trailer!!! We are now the proud owners of a 1991 16' Scamp
does need a little TLC after some abuse by its two previous owners so, we've been going over the forum and between the pictures of restorations/renovations and amazing tips, we look forward to getting started.
Our work will primarily be esthetic from what we can tell. The inside has been previously partially (and poorly) remodelled, with the first owner taking out the kitchenette to install bunk beds and a closed door toilet (why?). The padding on the walls and ceiling is very dirty with spills and covers most windows
(why, why, why????). We will be removing the bunks beds and toilet but would also to take out all that fur down. What is that fur anyway? What are our options in terms of insulation other than the fur? Cost is a concern but if that's our biggest expense, so be it. We loved the metal sheet used as backsplash by one of the members for his trailer and were thinking along those lines. Actually, I was thinking along those lines but my husband was concerned about the work, look, etc. I could just as simply live with a white interior. Anything but the fur, really. So I guess my question would be how do we go from the fur to a clean white, smooth interior?
We can do without a kitchenette, water, toilet inside the Scamp
as we don't have a need for those inside (parts of our tent living days will remain) and would like to turn the trailer into a clean, bright, open (as much as possible in a 16' trailer) space for sleeping and plain relaxing when not outdoors.
Thanks for all the help over the years and we look forward to participating as actual active members now!
