I'm amazed by your ingenuity. Are your propane tanks in the storage box? Does the PVC screen hinge in the middle?

WOW!!!!!!!
I remember seeing this on eBay and thinking what a project for someone. You have done a wonderful job. So cute, cozy and creative. Love what you did with the cupboard doors and how you used the old ski. Also like the box in front and how the chairs fit right inside. Your laundry basket gave me an idea for our Burro.

I know what it took to bring this back to life. My dad bought an Amerigo in about the same shape as your Scamp. Piled high with bike parts and nasty trash, door busted all up, mold, dirt, grime and gross inside and out, leaks everywhere, and ugly camo type paint on the outside. At least his had all the windows, and he installed a bath with a shower in his. It took him more than a year working nights and weekend to bring his back to life. How long did this project take you? He did the same exact thing as you did for a screen door and it works great. You should be very proud of yourself, you did an excellent job.

Are you going to use the Scamp for camping, guest room, get away place or what?

You have great talent. Here's to a job well done.

Thanks for all your nice comments. I have actually only had this Scamp for one month today! BUT, my job gives me 3 days off a week and I have taken a couple of vacation days too and done nothing but work on this thing every minute that I am not working or sleeping! As it nears completion, (I figure about 2 more weeks) I keep thinking of other things to put on the list AND now my son wants his remodeled too (and I have lots of left over parts!) So I think this will be an ongoing project for at least a couple more months! I love it though and can't wait for our first trip in the 2 of them! Oh, and I did away with the propane. I am the only one using this Scamp, have a camp stove for outside and an electric 2 burner hot plate for inside, and the Scamp did not come with a tank anyway, so I decided I just didn't need it!

Wow.....you did do a lot of work! I can not imagine the time you spent on your scamp reno. We have also been doing scamp renovations, not as many as yourself but still time consuming. This is our first posting so when we actually figure out how to show some photos of our work we will post them also. Thanks for sharing, it is nice to see other peoples neat ideas.

I am with you, Jaye. Most folks like to cook outside, and so having the stove so that it can be used inside, or outside, was the way I have done mine.
That way I had room for a storage box, similar to yours, on the tongue. It holds battery, hoses, boots, and all the messy things that you don't want cluttering up the inside.

Jaye, you've done an amazing job on your trailer! You're my inspiration. I'm going to have to copy the awning idea, too.

The whole job is outstanding! We just purchased a 1978 Burro and have been using your ideas for inspiration on our restoration. A couple questions: How is the awning attached at the top to the trailer? Also, I believe you mentioned in another posting that you can shower inside. Do you hang a curtain when you use the shower pump? Stand in a plastic basin?

Thanks!

I have not done the inside shower yet- it is still in the thought stages...

as for the awning, I keep meaning to get some pics of the clamps I used as I don't know what they are called, but I haven't taken them yet
What I used are just little metal u shaped springy clamps that I got at the hardware store-I think they are meant to hold conduit or something, I have used them in the garage to hang rakes etc if that helps to identify them! Anyway, I put 3 of them on the roof and the PVC just snaps right into them. I can easily do it alone AND the awning stayed put through our last downpour and strong wind so I am happy with it! Here a a real crude drawing till I remember to take a photo!
