Had a helper laying the floor.









He took a break once the floor was in.



Now it is my turn to do the trim.



Continued....

I ran out of wood. LOL Will finish the trim on Wed. when I can go buy some more.



Got my cushions today.





We are still waiting on the rear window and also the door and stove area window. Once we get those we can at least get the outside looking like something.

Nice job on the floor! Thought I'd share my mod, because I also cut out the front end as well for a desk and went with wood flooring...

Keep the progress coming, and great pics in showing us.

That looks great! What did you use to trim the bench sides. Your's looks kind of gold. Is it aluminum? That is one thing I haven't figured out how I want to do it. I need to go take a look at Home Depot to see what may work.

I didn't get much done today. Went to HD and picked up some more trim and finished the bottom floor. I will do the remainder of the top floor once we get water tank and pump set up under the one side bench.



I need to go buy some corner trim to do up the step and around the back of it.

I did hang my first thing on the wall today. LOL I got the trick from a person either on this forum or on the FB page. LOL Used a curtain hook.




We got our windows back yesterday, so today I masked them off and painted them. Yah, should have done that before we had new glass put in, but didn't think about that then. LOL






I can't put those back in till we get the stuff to seal them. I'm hopefully going to be getting some extra with the rear window I ordered through Scamp. Still waiting on it to get shipped. They need to build a crate for it I guess and it is taking a while to build it. Can't wait to get it though, things will move along faster once it is here.

You're well on your way and great to see the fun in the process. My father is a hardware hoarder, and I knew he had a set of small brass trunk corners in his stash. They're perfect for that spot, protecting the corners and helping hold the corner trim together.

Regular hardware stores don't carry them anymore, so try craft shops, specialty hardware or order online if you're interested in doing the same.

Ok, thanks for the tip!

Today we went to get some more stuff for the Scamp. We found this fridge.



It's only a 2 way, but it is better then nothing. Even has a little freezer.



Works too.



Hubby worked on the 110 power. We needed a new cord for the trailer so we got that and he installed it. He also put a new drain on the sink. Just need to find a new faucet for it.







He also figured out the hook up for the parking lights and all. I put all new marker lights on.





Got the fridge in the hole, but we need to make something to fill in the gap on the one side. It was a tad smaller then the original.



I still need to install the tail lights and hubby needs to hook the propane lines up to the fridge and stove, but it is getting there. Oh, we got the water tank back in but need to go buy some new hose to connect it to the new pump and also to the sink, once we find the faucet we want. But, once we get the hose ran, we can get the table benches put back down for good.



Question!

I heard that the Scamps had a converter to make 110v convert to 12v. It supposedly also charged the battery while hooked up to the 110. If this is true, what does it look like and where did it go???

The photo shows what the converter looks like, and it's located on the face of the right rear dinette bench (the side where the 30 amp cord and your new drain outlet is located on). Practically speaking, the back of the converter is easily accessed through the bench access hatch. Easier than the water tank on the other side!

The previous owner told me that mine doesn't work, but I never had the need to test that claim yet. I'm all about the 110 plug right now. Hope the images help.

Yep, that helped! I definatly don't have one. LOL My bench seats have now hole cut in them. I think I will just carry a battery charger or one day do solar to charge the battery while we are stopped.

Thanks for the pic!!

Looks good Kim. To help the fridge out you may want to encase its top, bottom and sides in some sheets of ridged foam insulation... it helps it a lot in warm weather.

Thanks for the tip Carol. It already has some insulation around it but I can always ad more.


Not much to show for today. We got the fridge in place and but I didn't take a pic because it was basically the same as the other but it has aluminum strips on each side now. LOL I hooked the water tank tubes to it and ran the one around the back and to the pump, but then ran out of tubing. Need to go get some more tomorrow to finish it off to the sink.

My helper was assisting on the tube install.



Yes, he stays there the whole time I am trying to work. LOL Unless I have to kick him off, but today he lucked out and I was able to do it with him there.

Hubby worked on the propane today. He got the fridge working on it and also got propane to the stove. One burner works the other needs the knob thingy worked on as it is stuck shut.



Then, my Mom found me a rug. LOL Not sure if I want to go with the surf theme or not. If I do, I will go with the tie dye part of it too. Thing is, my VW Bus is a tie dye theme, so not sure if I want to go that way with the Scamp, although it is me though. LOL



We also found a faucet for the sink. Mine originally came with a 1 knob faucet for the outside water hook up and a hand pump style for the inside tank water. We bought a bathroom faucet that really doesn't look like a bathroom one, it's spout is actually a bit longer then most bathroom ones. So it will go to about the middle of the sink when it is mounted. We are going to hook the cold water side up to the tank that will have a electric pump hooked to it. The C on the handle will now stand for Camper water. The hot water side will be hooked to what I now call Hooked up water, so the H on that knob stands for Hooked up water. LOL So now we will have one faucet that does both jobs. Will take pics of that once hubby gets it installed. He will have to do some fiberglass work to the current hole first though. Then drill new holes for the new faucet.

Hubby got the faucet installed this morning before he went to work. I love it. I love how it goes half way into the sink instead of being right at the edge. That and it swivels to get out of the way if need be.







It is a laundry faucet if anyone is interested.

Smile Loving this pic by pic account.

Kim, you and your husband are doing an amazing job. I can only hope when I attempt to do some minor modifications to my Scamp they come out half as well. Love your choice of flooring. Mine is carpeted but I think I'd like the wood better as it would be easier to clean. Where I usually camp I see a lot of mud.
Thank you so much for sharing. Keep them coming!
