Loose Scamp rivets

We recently got our 2006 16' Scamp. The previous owner drove hundreds of miles on rough gravel roads in Alaska and there are numerous loose rivets. Do I need special rivets and tool or will something else work?

Aluminum rivets are available at most hardware stores.
You will need two sizes 3/16 x 3/8 to 1/2 inch grip range and 3/16 x 1/4 grip range.
If you are replacing the upper cabinet rivets you will need Acorn nuts.
It the curtain rod brackets are loose you need 1/8 x 1/2 inch grip range.
If you need snap caps and bases go to prodec.com and click on snapcaps.
he page that comes up will show both sizes you need.
It's much less expensive ordering the caps from prodec than Scamp.
A hand rivet gun is all you need and are also available from most hardware stores.

Good luck, several years ago I bought a 16' Scamp that needed every rivet replaced.
