Trailer: 88 Scamp 16 ft
Posts: 191
We've finally come to the point where everything is starting to go back together on the 88 16' Scamp rebuild. So here's the question. Has anyone here located metal (chrome or aluminum) exterior fixtures? We would like to replace all of the plastic fittings like the fresh water fill, electric cord hatch, and the evacuation port with metal ones similar to the city water hook-up.

Any help here would be much appreciated.

Just a thought, Dan... there are a couple of reasons that those chrome pot-metal fixtures have gone extinct in new manufacture... plastic is, of course less expensive and easier to produce... but the old stuff isn't nearly as durable. Pot metal cracks with too much torque, and the chrome always blisters and peels and looks terrible after two seasons.
