Older 13' scamp rat fur????

Did the 1980 era 13' scamps have the rat fur in them. I looked at a used one today that didn't and wondered if they had removed it?

They didn't think they started to put Rat Fur in them in 1986

Behind our youngest grand kid you can see the short knapp carpeting in our 84 Boler. The trailers that I have seen that were manufactured at Midhurst from about 1981 or '82 to 1988 had this as an interior wall covering. This is quite different from the long haired rat fur that scamp uses.

I just bought a 79 Boler, 17 ft, it has a rough popcorn interior, not rat fur or elephant skin ensolite. This popcorn is behind the cupboards, it must be original.

Wasn't that about the time almost everyone had either a velvet Elvis or bullfighter hanging on one of the walls of their house? Post shag if I recall.

Do you have any photos of a Scamp with the "long haired rat fur"? I have not seen it.

Like Donna's 88 my 92 has the marine grade head liner that is often called rat fur. I was under the impression its the same stuff they started using when they switched to using a fabric headliner from vinyl & still use today.

LOL was in a second hand store the other day and you would just die knowing what they want for those old velvet painting these days! Was thinking of getting a small one to hang on the rat fur of my trailer
