Boy Mike

Mike >>you that once said you could leave a sprinkler going inside

Boy Mike, you are good. Yes, that was me. It was part of a challenge a number of years ago ... I offered to put a sprinkler inside a new Casita trailer if someone with a new traditional stick built trailer would do the same.

Part of the deal would be to let the sprinkler run for a week. Then shut the trailers up and let them mold.

My bet was that the molded fiberglass trailer would still be structurally sound ...

Well - there's been enough photos of 70's era Bolers and Scamps in the middle of restoration that I think your point has been proved. :)

Course Pat's trailer was just like mine in that the MAJOR growth problem was on the exterior of the trailer. Yuck!

Portholes appeal:
Round trailer - round window. Makes sense to me! Those squared off side windows just don't 'fit' IMHO.

Likin' it

Yeah, I like it, too. Now I just have to get up the courage to cut a hole in my Casita. I don't know if I can do that!

:cblob

Back to :chatter about Pat's Scamp Restoration, though...

'76 Scamp project

:wave All;

The air conditioner maybe the answer. There was an outlet on that end of the booth. I have seen air conditioners in the front or rear windows with legs going down to the tongue or bumper.

I first thought I would frame the hole out and put a door there. It would be to get to storage under the table. Folding chairs, folding tables, wheel chocks and other camping things. I have chucked that idea.

Scamp used the same insulation as Boler had into the 80's.

Round windows, cool, would they open. If you are talking about the ones from boat, I did't pay that much for the trailer.

Don't you love those smilies.:ola

Lex, I have looked at the pictures. It is true that a picture is worth a thousand words.

Pat,

You might try to find a boat salvage/surplus store. We have one in Daytona Beach and their prices are quite reasonable.

'76 Scamp project

:wave

A boat salvage yard, wow, I have been to tractor salvage yard. All I have to do is find one, that shouldn't be that hard. There should be one within a hundred mile.:conf

The problem is to find something small enough. Many of us know that ventilation is needed on that end on the trailer. The one that put in the vents, had to put a wedge in the front because of the curve of the trailer. Looks like a good job was done.

I have to finish painting the frame. One wheel has been off and cleaned up and packed. The other wheel is off. We found brakes, they haved never been hooked up. My trailer expert tells me that the angle iron the middle of the trailer is bent(I can see that) and the door problem is at least in part a frame problem. Right there by the door. A few of the angle irons on the tongue have to be replaced. Right where the battery sat. The bumper may be redesigned.

Isn't this fun.:jester :jester :jester

Ensolite found

:sunny

The blue foam sleeping pad that I got at Wal-Mart is made of Ensolite as is my white vinyl clad toilet seat. The pads are not large and wouldn't be cost effective for a large area.

Chick out this link for more info on price, etc.

These are the two pieces of an Extase body.

It is the project of Yvon and Jos

They are now doing the frame.
So, there is a lot of work to do.
I'll keep you informed.
Here I am again.
The frame and the axle are ready to be mounted.

The body is one piece again.
