Vintage 13' Scamp broken window brackets

The front window brackets were broken when I purchased the unit. I understand how they can be repaired but am curious about the rivets. The rivets I am familiar with have a little nubbie that remains after the stem is broken off. The Scamp's rivets are flat on both sides. Since the rivets go into the window frame and need to be flush to have the window close, how do I replicate the original rivets?

You can order parts direct from Scamp. I think this includes rivets. If you don't see them listed on their website just call. They're usually very helpful.

Marilyn, what is the year of your vintage Scamp? I have a couple of links that I can provide that will help you with the rebuild of the windows. Scamp only built opening front windows in Scamps for a couple of years in the 1970s.

Broken front window brackets

The Scamp is a 1971.

Well that's a bit earlier than this information, but see if it will help you: Window seals & hardware for 76 Scamp tilt out windows

Wow - you do not know how much this link to Jenny W's posts will help us Donna D.!! We have been struggling with the exact windows, side and front and back and door on our '77 13 footer since we bought it many years ago. Your link to the posts will help us solve the problems. We made some pieces but nothing has really worked. Adding those outside latches will help too because the little arms tend to want to come down in transit - even the original ones! Thank you thank you thank you!

You are more than welcome Janet & Randy. It's one of the very BEST reasons to belong to a great forum like FiberglassRV. The sharing of information and camaraderie of like-minded people.


Best of luck and let us know how it goes
