Kim's 93 Scamp 13ft.

Hey everyone, I an intro in the intro area, but figured I would start a thread for my Scamps restoration.

We got it for free, but it needs some work, to say the least. LOL Here is what it started as.














We had to move about 6 trailers to get it out.



See it?




Limited to 8 photos per post, to be continued in next post.

Got it cleaned out and cleaned the cabinets.






Here is a before pic of the front window.

After,






Today we started the process of taking the benches out so we can clean up the floor and water tank. Going to buy all new hoses for it. Once the floor is fixed I plan on putting hard wood flooring in.







So that is where I am today.

This is my plan for the front couch area. We plan on cutting the hole where the porta potty is sitting on, bigger so it can drop down inside that area. Then cut the center section out and put a removable table there, and make cushions for on top of the porta potty (will cover it up so you can see it} and a cushion to match for the other side. Here is a bad drawing trying to show what I want to do.



So eventually it will sit 6 people with a table for all, and sleep 2. It's only the 2 of us so that will be perfect for us, but we can still entertain others during the day or whatever.


I will update this thread as I do more to the trailer.

wow, Kim! That is a serious cleanup job. It looks like you have made some real headway already. If you are not opposed to putting hours of elbow grease, i'd say you got a good deal. Congrats on the Scamp and welcome to FGRV.

Definitely a project camper...but looks like you have a good handle on what you want to do with it....will be watching for the updates.
We have a 13' Scamp....
You mentioned seating for 6 inside.....I think you will be spending most of your time outside unless the weather is too bad.
Good luck..keep up the good work.

OMG !

Thanks for all of your hard work to resuscitate this Scamp. Keep the photos coming; we'll all be interested in how you put the pieces back together again.

Two points: Using the forklift and roll-back is just plain cheating. And your story would be more interesting if your entertaining plans were for night time.

That is dirtier than my 16 when I got it, so maybe this will help. It looks like your floors are solid. I removed all the benches like you have and then I had my son get inside with a shop vac, and I pressure washed the interior, spraying it liberally with that LA cleaner everybody here raves about. It came out like new, and all the smells (and mildew stains) are gone. Before anybody chimes in that that is a bad idea, the alternative for me was to rip it all out and start over! The trick was to be careful to not spray to close that you ruin the fur and to immediately suck up the water before it did damage. I started at the top and worked my way down. I thin put a dehumidifier inside and in a couple of hours it was bone dry.

As for the water lines....I found that clear braided hose to be a expensive. I replaced it all with pex, using the regular crimp connectors. I was about the same price with all the fittings I needed, but I feel so much more confident that its not going to leak.

Somebody said thes trailers are fun as they are like little doll houses.

It needs work, but the price was right!

Thanks for the info. Never thought about pressure washing the inside. Did you just use a shop vac to suck up the water out of the carpeted walls? I am getting close to tearing out the main entrance flooring (it is bad so needs replaced), so that will be a good time to pressure wash the walls. The water will have a place to run out. I think we are going to be able to salvage the upper table area wood. There is one bad spot but hubby is just going to patch it.

If I go the pressure washing suggestion, I think I will try to tape some plastic over the table area wood, that way it won't get as wet.

You might want to try a gentle pressure wash now and then come back later with a steam cleaner or Rug Doctor upholstery cleaner. I know some Scamp owners have also brushed in Resolve carpet powder cleaner and sucked it out with a vacuum.
