My sister was looking at that camper too. I told her it wouldn't last but she seemed to think it was soo ugly that no one would want it. Lol.

I like it because it would give me the freedom to paint it as wild as I wanted.

Awesome! I had already offered up my help to her to fix that one up since mine is done and I needed a new project before school starts up again. Lol

She will keep looking. Maybe now she will believe me that these things get snatched up fast.

Good luck. Hope to see at a rally. I'm in San Antonio , Texas.

I am North of Dallas about 60 miles. I have a brother that lives in Boerne. Love that area. If I didnt have family I would definitly be relocating to the hill country.

I still think it's a Casita, they used that sculpty carpet. The one I saw, the carpet was a kinda burnt orange though. And, I know they did it in a light blue as well. Michele had a 1985 13' Casita with a front bathroom (small window in front), but I can't find the interior pictures.

I vote Casita too. scamps always have tons of outside surface rivets that I don't see. Could be camouflaged though. Lol

Wheel wells look like Casita - full glass molded into lower shell with no lip. OTOH, rear bumper is angled @ corners, like Scamp. Front tongue doesn't look like either...

EDIT - found an archived ad for a 1983 Casita with the orange-y carpet and small front window:
http://www.fiberglass-rv-4sale.com/f...200-bastrop-tx
The stock tongue is definitely straight, though, and not curved upward, so I'm wondering if the OP's was modified (maybe for off-road use as a hunting cabin??). Something I'd want to take a close look at to make sure it is solid.

Whatever it is (I guessed a Scamp when it was posted on the Facebook Uhaul site.), I will enjoy watching you turn this into "Jellybean." What an opportunity to turn a fright into a sight.

Thats funny. Maybe someone just used parts from whatever they could find. Kinda like that Johnny Cash song "one piece at a time". Maybe I should change the name to cyborg or something. I did have a question. The molded bench seats in the dinette area, are those available at all? or do you just have to build a bench?

I'm thinking Casita too.

The molded bench seats come up every now and then when people mod the insides. I know of some for a boler up here in Canada, no idea if they would fit yours though. A template would tell quickly.

When you remodel it, be sure to provide some support for the roof. Scamps, Casitas and the like do get stiffening and support from the cabinetry. That is why they have the twisted metal rods or the poles or whatever between the countertop and the upper cabinet, for example. On the other side there is often a closet going from top to bottom. Without some support, roofs can crack and cave in.

Thanks, I'm sure I will have a ton of questions before this adventure is over. There is no pole between the countertop and cabinet in mine.
