Diane,
The counter top is another good IKEA hack... it was a old red IKEA desk top shaped like a bean.. it is a retired IKEA desk top.. I found it on CL after our Dallas IKEA was out of stock for the new model i had choosen.. i really like the round profile edge design on this one better...plus I saved myselff 50$
We coped the back side to fit the curve of the trailer painted it white and then coated it with a 2 part epoxy that you just mix & pour...this epoxy it is sold for bar tops . I was very happy with the resiults.

Carol, I love saving money and purposing things. You guys did such a great job. Thanks for the info on the bar top epoxy, I have never heard of this. I bet it is really a hard surface, looks so professional.

The small stove window is not available.
A guy in Austin has taken it off my hands a few months ago.
I will let you know as the other windows get removed as I will be replacing all of them. I will see then if you want them

Carol,
Thank you for posting your make over. I really like what you have done to your camper. I am in the mist of getting ideas for upgrading my scamp 16. I was wondering what kind of sink you have and faucet? They are very nice. I was also wondering how you attached the counter top to the cabinet. I was also wondering what is on the top door of your fridge. Oh and where did you get your mirror?

Very nice job. It's like going to Ikea in there!

Really like the hanging rod organizers. I have a couple of those laying around and now I know what I might do with them! I think we're going to have to hit up Ikea soon.

hey Scamphappy.. here are your answers ...

kind of sink you have? Sink is a round one from IKEA

and faucet is a "Hot Spot"with hot and cold water handles we ordered from home depot on line.
we did not crank degrees up all the way...just so if someone used it for washing hands it would not burn them..

I was also wondering how you attached the counter top to the cabinet? We attached with sheet-rock screws attached from underneath then caulked outside under the overhang

I was also wondering what is on the top door of your fridge. they are spice jars white plastic with magnetic bottoms from The Container Store

where did you get your mirror? IKEA! I loved it was white and had radius corners!

Watch out plugging two 110vac cords into two different outlets. There is a strong chance for ending up with 220vac if those two cords are ending up on the same trailer circuit. It has to do with the two house circuits being on a different phase feed from the house breaker box.

I'm pretty new to this website, but so far I LOVE all the ideas!! Needless to say, this Scamp is beautiful!!! I will be full-timing starting September in my recently acquired 1998 13 ft Scamp and definitely need ideas for more storage. I love that you used the IKEA rail system as that was one of the first things I thought to do to make use of vertical space! Gotta love IKEA!! Did you have to do anything special to install them or just screw them in??

I'm also a little confused about the overhead cabinets with plumbing access doors: they just slip into the slot and are held by tension springs?

I noticed you have storage under the bed as well. Can you show a picture of it? I'm trying to figure out the best way to make use of that space.

Thanks so much for posting this!! It's absolutely modern and elegant! Very IKEA-esque!!

What a beautiful job you've done! I just wish trailer manufacturers would move their styles into the 21st century like this - and I'm someone who actually prefers the vintage look. It seems to me that the manufacturers just keep on repeating the same old designs and layouts and never seem to think outside the box.

One thing - since you've gone all electric, do you now not have a stove? Do you cook with just the microwave and your small outdoor grill then? I would miss my propane stove a lot.

Can't wait to see what you do to the outside!
