Thank goodness for this site and the input of other generous owners! If I had not taken time to really research and ask questions about our 1979 13 ft. Scamp
, I would have just jumped in and ruined it.
I had plans to pull out the fiberglass kitchen. By reading here, I now know that the kitchen with it's wrought iron posts, and the closet opposite, are integral to the strength of the entire camper. That's a can of worms I don't want to open.
I've also found out that I need to balance the weight
over the axle
. Otherwise, I would have been putting a fridge
, and air conditioner all on the kitchen side.
Additionally, I would have started hanging shelves, etc. without realizing I was making holes in FIBERGLASS! I would have hung blinds to discover they would not work correctly, as is, because of the curvature of the walls.
So, as a Newby who thankfully does not currently have the money to do anything to our precious, new to us, Scamp
, I warn other excited impulsive new owners to stop and do their research... Take advantage of the wisdom offered on this site and really think things through.
That's my two cents worth for whatever that's worth nowadays!
