New Interior 2006 Egg Camper

We got a new bigger fiberglass camper at the beginning of the month and it was truly a clean slate, everything in it was white except for the little brown seats on the side dinette and the carpet. The Egg Camper as they call it is 17 feet long and has a very open floor plan with a shower/toilet. We had been camping in our Scamp for 2 years but living without a bathroom and having such a small bladder wasn't working out so well for me. I found this camper on the Fiber Glass RV form and knew it would be the perfect camper for the two of us. The woman I purchased the camper from said that they had only used it four times. I believe it because it even still smelled used and the stove looked like it had never even been turned on.

After decorating the Scamp up all cute it was very easy to sell through Craigslist. I put the Scamp on Craigslist at 4pm and by 6pm I have several folks asking about it. This is the first thing I have ever posted on Craigslist and I wouldn't hesitate to list there again.

Decorating this camper was really fun but finding bright colored bedding to match the brown that was already in the camper was a bit of a challenge. I finally found the paisley quilt at Target and then wanted to find another coordinating fabric to go with it. This stripe fabric that I got from Hobby Lobby was just the ticket and I really love how everything turned out and just in time to go camping next weekend.


The rear bed is a full sized mattress and the back mattress fits where the table is to make a second bed.


The little brown seats came with the camper and they looked new so I just left them as is


This shows the shower curtain and my tiny microwave.
I made this little cover that sets over my stove out of a cutting board and pipe fittings
along with some rubber feet so it doesn't slide around.
Without it there really isn't any counter space.


I made these little window toppers so that they simply Velcro to the tops of the mini blinds. Look at the bottom right, that's right we have air

Love it. Our 2011 Egg Camper is all electric. My wife has the materials for drapes to replace the blinds and the stuff to make a screen for the escape window. Checked with Jim Palmer at the factory and was told that the window manufacturer does NOT make a screen for the escape window. My wife has also made a quilt with tee shirts that we've bought on our travels. Already have one of those at home. Are you aware that there's a fiberglass trailer rally on Sept 7,8,9 at Algonac state park? I guess there are 20 some outfits signed up. Check the rally topic in the forums. Hope you can make it. We went to our first in Indiana in May. Lots of fun & food.

Very Nice! Thanks for the pictures. I like the way you left the brown seats,gives it a 2"different room" look. Good thinking on a way to hold up the toppers for the curtains.

Oh Heck the whole thing just looks GREAT...get out go camping and enjoy.

Thanks everyone, Bob I am very interested in how she is going to make a screen for that window. I didn't even realize that it doesn't have a screen and it would be nice to be able to use that window. The easiest way I can think of to make a screen is to stitch one up that would velcro on? What do you think.

I love the fact that this camper is a very blank canvas when you get it so that it can so easily be made your own instead of the cookie cutter campers that are available by so many other companies.

Our screen, when she gets around to making it, will be mosquito netting with a bound edge about an inch wide and we'll velcro it to the frame (inside). She'll make some sort of closable spot to be able to get at the catches.

Tracy, You did a beautiful job coordinating the fabric decor in your egg. You did a superb, quality job! If you'd like to know, the "proper" name for the window topper is "valance". You said you decorated the Scamp you sold in a cute way as well. Do you have photos to share? I LOVE to see what people have done to decorate their eggs. I invite others to share their interior decorating efforts as well.

I know the window topper is called a valance but it just seemed like such a stuffy word for a camper interior

I don't own this 1978 Scamp anymore but here are the photos of the interior. When I got the Scamp 2 years ago it had the original upholstery and had sat outside for years leaking and getting nasty. I replaced all the foam and fabric, painted the walls and used contact paper to make the lower door and fridge pretty. The shades are stitched to the top underside binding of the window toppers and roll up velcroing to themselves. I really hate curtains in campers since when they are open they cover up so much of the windows.

Tracey,
Very nice decorating! It looks like you're very creative, which makes you a perfect match for the EggCamper. You'll find lots of room for mods.

I have a lot of ideas but not any electrical ingenuity and my ideas need a bit of that.

You have created beautiful and well-thought out interiors. Your design gives me inspiration!
For those who do not like curtains but like the look of a decorated interior you might want to consider installing side curtain panels. I make mine 10" wide and attach them to to outer 4" of the curtain rod. You can extend the rod beyond the width of the window (beyond the rod support) and put the curtain panel there. When you hang the panels in this manner they block none of the open window and give the illusion of a larger window!
I have included a couple photos of my curtains. I prefer to keep the original curtains with the decorative panels. When the cream-colored curtains are closed I have privacy and light. When I want to look out of the window I tie back the curtains with my "tie-backs" which attach with Velcro to the "rat fur".
Keep these great ideas coming!
