Hi all!
A friend emailed me with good news and a request for help...I thought I'd go to the best source of information and see if anyone could suggest some help...

Here's the message I got today...
Hi Bob,
We finally got our '77 13 footer saturday! we are already well under way with projects and have ordered a bunch of needed parts. You're right, we already are the talk of the neighborhood - everyone keeps coming over and wanting the grand tour!

Question, that i'm hoping you can help us with:

We have the 12x12 ceiling vent, that Scamp no longer makes. Do you have any ideas of where i can get all replacement parts for it? The whole thing is just smashed up.

Any ideas?

Thanks for being a great resource and help!

I'm assuming there should be RV parts stores that would have aftermarket roof vents that would fill the bill but I'm not 100% sure... my Scamp's roof vent is the "escape hatch" size, not as small as this 12"x12" vent on this '77 model.

Anybody have any suggestions?


Check out my Scamp restoration video on Youtube, & my Ham Radio Blog. Or take the 50 cent tour...

I see no reason why you can't add/replace your vent with any suitable vent system that's the same size or larger. We replaced the old metal vent and cover with a larger screen and acylic vent cover with just a little roof trimming. We have had no problems in 10 years with it.
