I just love the design! Any time I would prefer this over the design of a brand new Scamp...! Also, the Bronco looks awesome!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share all of your work. It's so great to see photos and hear about your mods.

Could I ask how you attached your thin ply panels? For example the ones on the overhead cabinets and on the vertical surfaces of the dinette bench fronts?

Also, where did you find the thin Baltic birch ply? I felt like I'd seen it all over the place a few years ago, but then recently I tried to find some and came up empty handed.

Thanks again

Raya

Breathtaking! As I say to my pre-schoolers: "give your brain a kiss!"

Hi Raya,

Thanks for your compliments.

The panels are affixed with both panel adhesive and small screws driven in from the backside. I picked up the plywood at a retailer here called Hardwood Industries. But I just did a quick Google and found other sources online. You may find a wood specialty shop near you, or contact a local cabinet maker and ask about his/her resources.

Thumbs up

Hi, I sent a message earlier, but after thinking about it, I thought I'd post my questions here as well. First of all, I really enjoyed your renovation, congratulations and great job! I especially liked the way you did your door, and since the rat fur on mine is old & worn, I'd like to remove it. If you don't mind, Can you give me any tips on:

1. how you stripped your door, what you used, and how long it took?
2. how you mounted the wood to the door?

Thank you, and all the best!

LED taillights...

Thought some of you might be interested in seeing my new LED tail lights.

The original housings from Scamp are 7" in diameter—and the biggest round LEDs I could find online are these 7" school bus lights. (Given the "curvy" shape of my Scamp, I much prefer the round taillights over the rectangular...)

However, I couldn't leave well-enough alone. I wanted lights that made a bigger impression, so I added a bit of my own customization. Note the flat "flange" ring that encircles the LED housing. This is a piece of white Formica painted a reflective red and affixed to the shell. Now I have taillights that are 8.5" in diameter!


Next project: custom bumper and tire carrier...

Thanks, Fred,
As you probably know, many folks have gone with a mini-dinette reno to the fronts of their trailers. But I wanted more storage, and as far as I can tell, my solution is unique. You are welcome to mimic my work. Glad to help!

Fran,
That's 2" tubular steel, designed and finished to match the bumpers on my Bronco.

Looks great!! I'm jealous that your trailer is so white and shiny! Really makes me see how much ours isn't! Love your pictures!
