I used treated, but I let it dry for a month before installing, and I also put POR-15 on the frame, and an adhesive on the frame to isolate the wood from the frame. Treated wood will rust metal.

And no, I dont think ANYONE will have any luck changing Scamp....unless it's a liability issue. That's unfortunate.

Darral
OSB feels heavier. Higher glue content?

Progress

I'm attaching a few progress pix. The first pic shows the new floor being fiberglassed to the shell around the edge. The second one shows the beefed up frame behind the axle (dinette area). The last pic shows a closer view of the prop arm (cantilever support behind wheel well).

Resuming progress

I got the Scamp put back together just enough for a family campout August 16-18th at Burt Lake State Park in Indian River, MI. At that time the dinette area was completed but not the main isle. Then a funny thing happened in norther lower-peninsula Michigan. Summer finally arrived! I ended up staying in Mackinaw City almost two weeks. The weather was gorgeous! Then I returned downstate to the Flint area for more family plans on Labor Day. Today I resumed the floor project but finishing the vinyl flooring.

The new floor theme just feels right. It visually binds together all the black trim elements against the white fiberglass cabinets. Like it was always meant to be this way. Better 22 years after birth than never right? LOL

With leftover scraps I'm not planning to vinyl cover the table top but I want to try a door panel insert and see how that looks. Maybe compare one lined up horizontal and vertical with one turned 45 degrees. It's time to defrost the freezer anyway so that looks like tomorrow's chore.

That looks GREAT!! You're gonna need new cushion covers now....maybe RED!
I suggest you do either an all black or all white door panel for the fridge...using the squares may make it hard to tell which side is up!!
Great job!
Fran

Thanks!!

The door panel was black before. I didn't like that. Too dark. I'm actually on the fence about all white or the chessboard pattern. Open for opinions.

The all white makes things look more open ....but....the black & white is kind of cool. I suppose you could switch them out when you get tired of one or the other. But those cushion covers have got to go...any solid color would work. Maybe there's another Scamper out there who sews and would barter new covers for work on their trailer......

Gee thanks Fran. Those plaid covers I custom ordered for the wraparound dinette mod in 2007 now clash. Suddenly I hate them. LOL

Or you could hang pictures of "Tool Man Taylor's" buddy every where
and hang plaid shirts in the closets.
