I got a little more done today. I'm actually as far as I can go by myself. Now I need hubby to do his part by fixing the floors. After he fixes the floors I need to go pick out what top flooring I want and get hubby to install that. Then my fun begins and I get to start putting it back together and decorate.

Before I get to far though, I need to find some windows. I need 2 side window, the door window and also the back window. The others will do for now, but I don't have any windows in those areas mentioned. Going to the RV shop to see if they may have anything and if not I will have to make a call to Scamp to see if they can help me. The door window we may be able to have them repaired by having someone make the glass to go in the frames. Not sure on that yet.

Here is my progress for today.





This is the only bad spot in the table area. We think the water tank must have leaked. Will check it out before we reinstall it.



Hubby say's he can just repair it. Not going to pull that whole floor out.

WOW, hard work but you are doing a great job! I am so glad you are saving this little baby! Price is right so it's tons of elbow grease and imagination. Wishing you all the best and thanks for posting pics as you go along.

Hubby fixed the hole and then he put a thin coat of fiberglass resin over the old flooring. We figured that would help preserve it a bit more and also when i go to clean the carpet walls, the water won't soak up in the wood.



Since I have the lower floor out, as soon as the resin dries on the other floor, I will try my hand and washing the walls. Wish me luck.

I wish RV manufacturers would use plywood instead of flakeboard/OSB. Its much lighter in weight, stronger and slower to rot. But, it would add $20 to the cost so they don't. I would pay a $200.00 upcharge for the option.

OTOH, if you keep either dry they will not rot. Its water leaking that causes most problems. Unfortunately by the time leaks are discovered rot is well underway.

Wow! You're off to a great start! It made me sad to look at the condition this little trailer was in before you rescued it. It will be so satisfying to give it a brand new lease on life!

Today I went to lunch with my hubby and he had a surprise for me.



I think I have enough pop rivits and caps to re do the whole trailer. LOL He got them from a friend at the RV place we got the Scamp from. They said they would give us what ever else they find too.

I also cleaned the walls and all. I just used some carpet cleaner, sprayed it on using a weed killer sprayer, then just used the hose to hose it all off. I did try a pressure washer to see if more would come out, but there was nothing left to come out. It didn't turn out to bad.

Before,



During,



After,

Going to let it dry for the next day, then on Sat. we will go buy the base flooring and I will pick out what hard wood flooring I want. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have the floor done.

Went to find the windows today. I only found one side window. I lucked out and it was just sitting out in the open. I will have to order the back window and escape hatch from Scamp come Monday.



I also found me a stove top cover. It isn't right and sits on top of the stove but i will make it work. This will atleast give me a back splash now.

I'm in Sacramento. We went to RV Geoges, but they don't have much Scamp stuff. I think I pretty much got everything they had for them, which consisted of those pop rivits and the window. LOL

I will look up that place you mentioned though and see how close it is to me.

Tried to email Walt's RV and their email doesn't work anymore. I got an error email. So we called and they don't even know what a Scamp trailer is. LOL Guess they are out. LOL

Kim, it looks like you two are doing a great job!

If you would like to view another way to install the Porta-Potty you might can take a look at this modification:

Installing a front dinette while retaining bunks, couch and porta-potti in 13' Scamp"

I'm in process of attempting to convert my front bunk area into the front dinette/porty-potty, as shown.

Bill

I find it hard to believe that they have
Never heard of a scamp.... I know for a fact I bought a number of items from them a few years ago when I had. Scamp.... If I were you I'd call
Again it's always possible that the first person you called was either new or misunderstood
Again just my 2 cents worth
The last time I was there they had rows of used windows/ blinds etc

I will give them a call on Monday. My hubby called and had to tell them Scamp twice, then had to explain what it was, a fiberglass trailer. ??

Wow, that is nice!! You did a great job. I may have to copy the way you made it so the lower bunk part is still convertible into a bed. We could probably make the table big enough to fill that gap and just have an extra cushion that floats around inside the trailer till needed.

Today we went to Home Depot and bought the plywood for the floor. I also got the hardwood flooring I wanted.



Going with that floor and will be getting darker color wood to trim it with. Think it will look pretty cool.

I'm hoping to get the plywood down tomorrow.

Hi Kim,
You are doing great work on your scamp, and I am enjoying watching your progress. I see you cleaned the walls already. They look pretty good in the pictures but if they are not as clean as you wanted them I just wanted to let you know that when I renovated my boler I replaced all of the interior carpeting. I was able to pick up enough for my 13' for $200 cash. I just traced out the old pieces onto the back of the new carpet with a sharpie marker, cut the carpeting (ratfur or Headliner) wit scissors and glued them back onto the shell using outdoor carpet glu I bought at my local flooring store. I paid about $30 a gallon and with the cupboards and storage areas I needed 2 gallons of glue. I did not find it as big of a project as I was afraid it would be.
As I said, your walls look good in the pictures. Please don't take the above as an insult to the obvious hard work you have already put into this process, I just wanted to offer my experience.
