1981 scamp rebuild where to start

This is all this weekend i can do, but it is useable for next week, have plans staying the weekend in the little scamp. The table is 20in by 28in of eastern cedar and cypress. With a little pine to put more color the the table. The cushions are for outdoor chairs that are pre made at any hardware store, it looked like the easy way to go for me so i could use the weekend. but looking at them more. I think i will keep them and build around them. Then my bar on the cabinet side behind the seat back. lots of storage there with these kind of cushions.

Hello Sir,
Im Rick from NJ and I have a 1989 scamp 16 that I am working on as well. Will you have 30 feet of beading and lockstrip for plexiglass windows? If so, I am interested if the price is right.

Thanks for your time,
Rick

Oh my goodness, this is such a wonderful rebuild! I love the table, and the hatch to the under-bed area, and I really love your seat-back storage. So clever.

I might be rebuilding a bunk into my Scamp. How did you attach the wood rail to the glassed in wood in the wall? I've often wondered if this type of fix would match the factories original bunk support that would hold up to 100 pounds. Opinions?

To reply about the rubber for the windows with me doing the side windows like the front and rear i did use all i had. but with me using it over the weekend the 7/8 rubber that i used for the plex. with rain all weekend long and a leak at front glass. i am thinking of going with a 1.3 in rubber and putting the two ends on the side and not on the bottom.

and Ben, for the shelf under the front window this was a bunk camper and when I striped it out I left the brace that scamp had there to hold the bunk. and I attached the shelf to that brace.

I will be working on the scamp this weekend and more pics to come. its camping season here and I have lots i want to get done.

Ok worked all weekend and started putting the little egg back together again. she has a white top with the lower in aqua with a purple strip to split it up. As soon as get her back in one piece with a few new parts that I been waiting till it was painted. Will be putting on a J track for an awning. And new awning is being sewn up by the wife. No more duck tape holding a tarp on the camper.It was working for me, but she would not let me put tape on new paint.
