Thanks for your support. When I went to buy materials yesterday, I ended up with exterior grade plywood. I got the repair pieces cut and fitted and today's agenda include coating the patch pieces with resin and installing them. I am hoping to get the wardrobe bolted and riveted back into place. Since I haven't done this kind of work for almost 30 years, it is slow going but the basic skills seem to be returning.
I have found that the information presented on this forum by all of the knowledgeable and friendly people act as a refreshers for many things I have forgotten over the years. I know that I'll be saying this many times over the course of my repairs, but thank you to everyone that has taken the time to share what they know and have done. Things like the wiring diagrams and simple how-to's about fiberglassing, which I had only done once before on my 72-72 Pla-Pac's roof. (The clear dome was busted out when I bought that so I filled the hole)
Before I bought this, I was unaware at how readily parts were through the Scamp
Parts Department. Everyone there have been very helpful and interested in hearing about one of their older units being brought back to life.
Sometimes I read on this forum about people asking what fiberglass RV to purchase. I love them all but for me, availability of parts is a huge factor. Something as simple and inexpensive as the rear jack handle. Not a single dealer in this town had one in stock. The same goes for 30 amp land line male plug end. I ended up buying a new 25 foot land line with the plug from Scamp
for not a lot more than some local dealers wanted for just the plug....after they ordered it.
Anyhow, thanks everyone!
