I am replacing some of the rotten exterior white rivet caps and the clear snap that is held on by the rivet is breaking off due to rot as well. Do I have to drill the rivet out, order some new clear snaps from Scamp and rivet them back on before the end cap can be replaced?

thank you for everyone's help here..greatly apprecaited.

Patty

I have the exact same problem and I believe you do have to drill out the rivet and re-rivet it with the new snap-cap washer... If anyone knows a different way, please tell us!

P.S. I was able to order replacement washers and caps from here http://www.pro-dec.com/ as well as Scamp.

The caps and bases are available in different colors from hardware and marine supply stores.

I had a few of the caps gone on my 16'casita and i just took a new cap....... put some caulk under it and snapped it in place........ still working for me. if the rivets not broken this may be an easier alternative.

I am in the process of re-riviting my entire 13' Scamp. Virtually all of the white caps were gone as well as the washers and quite a few rivets. The trailer was a recreational rental purchased from the US Navy.
I ordered all of my rivets and washers from Scamp. I found that 3/16X1/2 pop rivets tighten up much better than the rivets I purchased from Scamp. The Scamp rivets are a bit longer.
Hope this helps and good luck,
John

Hey Joe,

I spoke to a Scamp tech person today and they instructed me to use clear silicone under the cap. Really don't need the base.

Thanks for all the advice.
