Interior Bedliner (SOS!)

Hello! We are twenty-something Minnesotans who are the proud new owners of a 1985 Scamp! We are in the process of removing all of the interior ensolite with plans to coat the inside with Lizard Skin bedliner in white. I am desperately hoping to find someone who has done this and has some feedback on how it worked. Do you know someone? Have you seen a post? Please help!

Hi Olivia. It's been 3-4 years, but there was a fella on Bolerama who used Lizard Skin to coat the inside of his Boler. I remember the equipment and product cost him about $1,000 and he was most pleased. I don't know if I can find the link, because it was so long ago but I'll look. If I find it, I'll post back in this thread.


I know it was applied at the factory, not a DIY, but the early Olivers used Lizard Skin between the hulls. That doesn't help you, just thought I'd mention it.

Welcome to the group. Have to ask why you're removing the interior coverings. You will loose any insulating properties by doing that. Also, from you're location you will have a lot more condensation issues without it on the walls. There have been one or two folks here that did do that coating inside but I don't remember why they did or any problems, if any, they may have had.

I am sort of realizing now that I should have tried to salvage them. I have a little bit of a pit in my stomach feeling. Can someone tell me everything is going to be okay?? Ahh!

We're always smarter when we look to the past, but what is done is done. Time to move forward. There's several solutions to replacement. Probably among the cheapest is the Reflextic and Marine Headliner (RAT FUR ) just as Scamp has been using in trailers since the mid-1980s. You can get everything you need from Scamp (although the Reflextic may be cheaper from a big box store).


Best of luck.

Agree that Reflectix and rat fur (or similar) might be your best bet. Better insulating and sound-deafening properties than bedliner, and less susceptible to condensation.

If you do go that route, it's helpful to get some pictures of a Scamp showing how the pieces are laid out. Their long experience has produced the easiest and most efficient use of the material. At least that was the assessment of one poster who reported having much difficulty figuring out how to fit the corners until they saw how Scamp did it.

Don't look back and don't give up!

I just searched the Lizard Skin website, looks like a very interesting product that has great potential. Cost: looks like you need about 10 gallons (based on very rough estimates using their calculator) that would cover all interior surfaces. The material costs through Jegs would be $880 plus if you add on their application kit for $80 the total is... Donna's memory of the price is right on.

Interior Bedliner (SOS!)

Looks to me like they offer one product to control heat and a different product to control noise and vibration. Did I misread that? Four mils thick. What will it feel like when you brush against it while you are sleeping?

I really think it's meant to be more of an undercoating in an occupied space with some kind of carpet or headliner on top, so more expense. The pictures show it as a floorpan coating in a vehicle restoration project.

: contact or find someone who does spray foam insulation to put about 1 1/2" on top of the LS? then finish with the Carpet that way no problems with condensation or sweating.
I had these guys spray 1 1/2" inside my old canopy that I had on my truck (u guys down there call them campers) what it does is stop rain coming down on you all night while your sleeping and sort of keep u a bit warmer when it is -18*C but even then when the air is cold your cold.
U can now buy this spray foam and all the equipment at Lowes stores and what ever u do don't get it in your hair, or on your skin or it will be there until u pass on. same thing for clothing. Wear a pair cheap coveralls like painters where.

Smile Welcome

Welcome to FGRV.
Since you already have removed the OEM inside, be sure that what you replace it with is suitable for interior, occupied spaces. It would be tragic if some coating would create any health issues.

Good point Roger. Some spray foam products may contain formaldehyde and other not-so-yummy ingredients.

Even though you're having an 'AAHHH' moment, just keep in mind that you can fix this and while it might not be exactly what you envisioned, you will be able to make it what you need. Just a slight correction in course, so don't panic
we're all here to help you!

Olivia, if you have not stripped off all the ensolite, you can still purchase it to replace the problem areas. You then may have to paint with latex based paint in order to make it all match. We have had two Scamps, one with ensolite (elephant hide), and one with marine headliner (rat fur), and I really liked the marine headliner much better as it doesn't tend to show condensation, and it feels warmer. Good Luck
