81 Casita Restoration

Still chugging away on my larger than anticipated project, got all the remaining foam off with the nylon brush and my Foredom grinding tool. Next project since I am already in it this far is to remove the camper from the trailer and grind down the frame and repaint it. Also have some holes in the camper to be fixed so fiberglass repair is also on the list. Just wanted any one to know got my cushions replaced with new ones from the Scamp dealer here in MN. alot cheaper than the $1400 quoted from an upholsterer in my area, only $525 plus tax! Got them today and also got a great tour around the shop from Devon in the parts department, lots of ideas on how to insulate and carpet when I get that far, and how to do the sub flooring and flooring. Still looking for any ideas on how to find window kits to repair the gaskets and felt in my old sliders? Happy camping I will keep you updated.

Doug, one thing at a time. The "plastic" parts around the outside are actually called Glazing Bead. For THAT you might check with Interstate: Interstate RV Metal & Supply
Interstate has been very help to classic all molded towable owners. If you don't see EXACTLY what you need... call them.

The fuzzies for the window channels... hummm... maybe here )it's actually called "flocking" Weatherstrip-Trims - Automotive and Marine Glass Run Channels Weatherstripping Trim
