I just spent the last couple of days putting my sewing skills to the test. I created "curtains" that are cut to fit each window and attach with velcro. One side is made of silky soft fake fur (dark brown) that has a bit of a sheen to it (looks like mink) and the other side is thick creamy white fleece. These should keep the light out and insulate the windows for the cold weather. I have ordered some brown sheer organza type fabric with a sheen to it as well, to make similar design curtains that will let the light in and give us a bit more privacy in the day time, when the light reflects off the outside of the fabric... if you haven't noticed, we decided to go with brown tones for our color scheme inside, I thought about it for a while, and decided that we might as well use a color that won't show dirt so bad once we are out using the camper. Next, I plan to repaint the inside with a light creamy coffee color. mmmmm coffeeeeeee....

We had our first rain on the camper today, and everything seems to be water tight inside... the escape hatch hood does not close all the way, and has a small crack on one side, but it didn't seem to leak. A little rain got in before I could close it though. I woke up this morning to the sound of rain and instantly flew out of bed, ran outside to close up the windows and got drenched

Guess I know my priorities! I LOVE our new egg!

On that note, I found a good price on a new coleman flush potti ($37 including ship) so that was a major score for us today!! I have been hunting them down and couldn't find anything less than $60. I love a good bargain, let's hope it is really new as it should be.

While I am at it, here are a couple of update photos. I added a 4" foam matress to the front bunk, and a screen door made from a section of that ez up screen I found for $9.99.

Great idea for a screen door......clever! love the new addition to your family.....congrats!!

I forgot to mention that we got our coleman potti the other day, so the first thing I did was a test fill and empty with water, just to see how everything will function. AND it fits in the center cabinet under the front bunk! It is brand new, so it was a good deal for the price!

Congrats, April. My aunt and uncle towed a little Scamp 13 for over fifteen years and loved it... Hope you do, too. Very cute!
Happy Camping!

I used some of the existing old hardware that used to hold the table up to connect the backing to the wall, seems to work well, and is removable. We are going to store our memory foam topper mattress in this space, so we can use the benches for other bedding or supplies. This is still in the early stage, I have not secured the front board in place yet, I still need to sand out the edges and add some trim to hide the rough spots and paint when we decide on a color.

I only did that because the tap was so far back, it didn't even reach the sink, just all over the cabinet. and yes, I did take the bench idea from another (thanks Peterh)... great minds think alike you know!!

The wave 3 heater I found on ebay came in today!! I got it for $200, came with feet, hose, and it was inside a nice looking lap top case. Used a few times, but still looks new! I won't be hooking it up until Kirk comes home this Sunday from his Taiko drumming group gig in Mississippi.

That looks like a big heater. Does it get that cold there?

BTW, I'm envious you got your trailer, I'm still looking....Ohio is beginning to look very colorful. I'll do the table mod too, if I ever find one.
