Scamp '13- total rebuild

Bought trailer knowing it was in bad shape. I learned how terrible it was once I got it home and started gutting it. Maybe worst I've seen. As you can see, all of the wood is now gone and not much of the wood to shell glass structure remained. The few threads that remained pulled off by hand. Sadly, the ensolite might need to go due to mold and the fact that we want it primarily for winter camping in Alaska. About to start refinishing the trailer before reconnecting the shell to the trailer. Will post more as I progress.

You do have a project on your hands! You seem up for it, and I am grateful when I see a neglected trailer brought back to life. Hope you'll post lots of pictures and details as you go.

Best wishes!

Scamp 13 Total Rebuild

I have a question.

Have you rebuilt other Egg Campers?

The reason I am asking is to gain knowledge about rebuilding Egg Campers, ... before I go at one myself.

I am a follower of the 5 P program.

Prior Planning Produces Peek Performance
Poor Planning Produces Poor Performance

I am looking to see if someone who has rebuilt an egg camper has replaced the plywood floor with marine board.

Marine board is used in shipbuilding due to it excellent waterproof characteristics.

Thank you for your time.

I would definitely go with marine plywood (I'm from the coast). Also it helps to coat the underside with a truck boxliner polymer product especially if you travel a lot on gravel roads. Good luck with your project!
