Well....

After bringing the scamp home and cleaning and cleaning...added in tires and rims and had the upholstery redone ...

i sent it out for the first part of its Upgrades....

I have had some work done in the past from Relaxed Customs in Thousand Oaks California...Phil Rush is the Owner and they do unreal electrical
wiring..right now they are doing all these retrofits on Forestry service trucks....adding GPS and satelite systems...http://www.relaxedcustoms.com

So I brought the trailer over and had them take a look ....They went nuts when they saw how small it was....and had so many ideas on what to do...they have had so many people inquire about the Trailer while it was there....many tours.....

For starters they recommended the trailer get rewired....the wires were hard and brittle..and made no sense on how and what was connected....makes sense why nothing worked correctly

They actually contacted scamp and provided pictures and got information from them on what all needed do be done...take it all out..this was a big set back for me....

They also showed Scamp my AC Venting and got two new AC vent panels that scamp sells to give the proper ventilation needed...and for safety...while doing that they saw that the fridge was not connected correctly so the fridge got rewired..

I had the vent replaced with a Fantastic fan....they did a custom shroud to match the interior

the main fuse panel relocated and all ac outlets replaced with GFI units...now have 5 ac outlets

added a 12 volt system to the trailer which included a new military grade dry cell battery mounted on its side..really cool...and 12 volt plugs ..3 for various toys...also the 12 volt system is all fused and labeled

A charge wizzard to maintain the battery when hooked up to AC...an outside light is on order as well as a couple more misc electrical items that need to be installed

A 20 inch LCD TV was installed with a cool mount i found off ebay..allows the unit to be seen anywhere in the rig....also installed earthquake straps to secure while traveling....

I Started my Solar hook up.... just waiting for my combo controller...i will have both solar and wind assist..to start i will have solar...a own a 75 watt panel...

Bought a rock gravel hardware kit from Scamp..and plan on mounting the solar panel to the front wondow or rear as needed and for storage will hang on the back window like the gravel shield.....I can now place the gravel shield in the front or rear....will use angled rods to prop up panel...will look like an awning at times..

Wow....thats alot...now for some pictures......and as we speak its in the shop getting painted....and i went wild on the color.....my co -workers father is a painter..and gave me a great deal..as long as i used paint he had in stock.....so I used paint color from an 09 Aston Martin...those pictures will come at a later date...the color is breath taking in the sun.....will see...Doh..
