A Note of Gratitude & Pics of Mods

Dear Friends,
I've finally taken my Scamp on two outings this year and loved every minute of it - what a joy! While on my last trip, I took photos of all of the projects and modifications that I was so dearly assisted with. It took a couple of weeks of on and off work, with the help of a friend, to get it all done.
From re-doing bad rivets, to help with understanding "how things work," the list is endless for the countless replies and private messages I received in support of my learning journey. Although so many people helped me along the way, I particularly want to thank Floyd, Carol H., Tim W., Mary and Bob, Francesca Knowles and Gregg A. for their tireless e-mails and support of my learning journey. There were so many others...thank you!
What you'll see here are pics of the propane detector with toggle switch for turning on/off during battery power only, Classic Bag Awning from Shademaker, MaxxAir Roof Vent Cover, TV Mount, closet shelves with PVC supports and cedar plywood shelving (hole cut below for more space), gas gauge, over the closet door storage, carpet strip to prevent snags at dinette area, and so much more.
I learned how to use a rivet gun here, how rivets work, about waxes, bearings and greasing, towing and weight limits, fiberglass and gelcoat...oh my gosh! So much.
Please note I'll have to post again, as it appears I can only upload 4 images at a time. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart!

Sincerely and Respectfully,
Wendy (CampyTime)

A Note of Gratitude: #2

Hi Again,
I just checked my posting and my 4 pics did not seem to upload. I'll try again here in this posting. If no luck, I'll have to play around with it again this evening, as I know they're all JPG images (but perhaps too large?)

Here's Two More Pics w/Gratitude

Hello Again,
It would appear that only two photos of whatever size mine are can be uploaded at once. I don't want to annoy anyone with multiple postings, so I will attach only two more photos here, unless I get the go ahead that you would like to see more!

Wendy

Great job Wendy. Love the pictures. We are dog lovers also. I have in-laws that live in Keesville N.Y.

Hi Papa T,
Thank you for writing! I do indeed live my dog Katrina. It was getting a bit chilly and since she's a "southern belle" (all the way from Kentucky) she gets the shivers at night when the temps drop some. Was rather chilly this last trip and I had to run the furnace in the am to warm us up some.

Ok she's spoiled...what can I say? I love her to death and she lives camping! When I tell her were going camping, I am promptly rewarded with a face full of doggie kisses. Bless her little heart!

I see Keesville is in the Adirondacks. I am originally from Watertown NY which is straight up 81. I'm from Sanborn, which is near Niagara Falls. Meant to say love my dog. Darn phones!

I really like the way your TV is mounted Wendy, great job. What size is that TV?

Hi Ratty3,

Thank you! The tv is a 15.6" Skyworth. I plug it in to my 12v connector and use a winegard amplified antenna. Works great!

Wendy

We have a Katrina fur kid in our family too. AKA Katie. Soon as we get the water jug and cooler out we get the bouncy "me too" dance of doggy delight.

She holds off on the kisses until she is in the car then the driver can expect an earful of doggie kisses by way of thank you as we pull out of the driveway.

She helps us remember that it is all about fun and adventure. Mixed with kick back time to watch the interesting world go by. They truly are a blessing.

A very nice job of modifying your camper to make it more livable too!
