I noticed that too… could not only be bad for the trailer's frame, but could be really dangerous. Those leveling jacks do not have a pin or other form of positive stop. Mine have been known to pop out, which would be a really bad thing if someone happened to be working under the trailer at the time.

Be safe- use jack stands.

OK Girlfriend,
You and hubby have been making serious progress. DON'T WAIT to hit that "Oh, we're now finished and complete" stage before you take it to the road.

Even companies like L.A. California-based Happier Camper, are putting their HC1 prototypes on the road while they're still waiting for the last of the detailed products to pull through to put them on the market.
You're doing an awesome job from chassis to specific details. As long as she's road ready (which she's pretty much there), hit the road and broaden your (and other fiberglass folk) experiences.

I'd be honored for you to pull your adventuring spirit to our rally on the East Coast this October:
Eggshells in The Outer Banks Fiberglass RV Rally

All the best

It's getting really close now. Basically just need to wire the plug onto the trailer wires so we can connect it to the car. We got the tail lights done today.



Also got the stove cover connected and the door seal on.





I went and picked out some material for the curtains and my friend is sewing them up for me. She made some for her Scamp so it should be fairly easy for her. LOL

Well, it is pretty well ready for camping. Just need to finalize the screen (measure cut and sew to fit opening) and it will be a done deal. I have started to fill it with supplies and my friend got my curtains done for me.

We added a bar on the old awning brackets so we can use our BusDepot awning on it.



Here's a view of the inside with out curtains.



Trying some different storage ideas.



My "as seen on tv" screen.



And finally the curtains.







Now we have to wait for hubby's work to find another driver so hubby can take some time off.

Not much to update on. It's pretty well ready to go. Just need to get some bedding and some cooking utensils. That and get my hubby to take time off work. LOL

I did modify my "As Seen On TV Screen". Cut it down to fit the door way. No real time use on it yet so I can't comment on how I like it. It is dog approved though. LOL









My hubby's employer finally hired another guy, so hopefully we can take the Scamp out for weekend here soon.

Have loved watching your progress.

We added some closet shelving between the upper cabinets. Simply drill the holes at one end and puss in about two inches then pull back into the other cabinet about an inch. They haven't moved in ten years. Great for books, hats, rain gear, etc.

Amazing how these fiberglass trailers can be brought back to life. Congratulations on a job very well done.

I just don't understand how the previous owners could have allowed such deterioration and abuse to a valuable piece of equipment. I can only assume they did not know what they had.

May you have MANY years of enjoyment as reward for all your hard work, not to mention the potential pay-off if you decide to sell this little gem and start over. :-)

As an afterthought, you should take the little guy to the dealer who gave it to you and let them see your results. Maybe you have already done this, I know I would have. Also, if you go to any rallies, make sure you take your "before" photos - otherwise folks will be unable to visualize just how bad it was.

Again, congratulations. I envy and admire those of you who have the talents and determination to accomplish these types of projects.

Congratulations to you both. You've done an amazing job restoring this Scamp; from pitiful to Perfect!

It's a 55 Ford Ambulance.

That's the plan eventually. Will be pretty cool once the ambulance is painted back to it's white and red color scheme. For now we plan on puling it with this.
