Here is my first round of pictures of our camper in the condition it is in when we got it.

Very nice Scamp April. It definately has had some very well thought out upgrades and modifications. Interesting solution to water supply and therefore freeing up some storage space. Very similar to what I came up with in the CJ. You should be very happy with your find. Also betcha you already have ideas as to what you want to change/modify after spending a couple days in it. Larry

Yes we put new tires on and we found out that most of the regular tire places (Walmart, Goodyear, Big 10) in the area did not carry or want to work on the size tires we have. We did luck out and passed up a random tire shop that had a small one axle trailer in the parking lot, so we decided to try it, and BINGO!! we got new tires! It saved us from having to drive around Pensacola and look for a Sears...

April, I also found that Wally World doesn't do trailer tires period. They won't even fill them. I was just looking to have the stem's changed. I guess it's a insurance thing, cause they steer clear of them all together. Glad you where able to find someone who carried what you needed. Robin

MEOW!! That was a photo taken at a party... we were all dressed up like cats silly huh?

We are in LOVE!! It may not be the fanciest model out there, but we got one that has at least had the grime and nasty cleaning part done for us. It is at a good starting point for being customized, so we have been getting busy with the revamp stage... I just added 4' foam mattreses for the two beds, bought new sheets to altar-to-fit them, Kirk is working on setting up the battery, and my next project: make the dinet a U bench...

Hi April. Thanks for the post, I really like the red swish too. I checked out your little egg and you got such a great deal! Like you said, having all the crud cleaned out is a huge bonus, so you get to start with almost blank canvas. So much nicer. Sounds like you're well on your way to updating cushions/curtains/interior which I can't wait to get to. Just simple upgrades like fresh color of curtains makes for a more inviting feel. I'm at a cross road with the interior of ours. We've got that pop corn insulation over foam on all the walls & it was damaged here and there and overall, dirty. I'd really like to have smooth walls but I've read other discussions and tearing it out looks like a uninviting process, so I've patched the damaged areas with the pop corn ceiling repair stuff and now it's a matter of masking off everything and painting it. It's a labor of love isn't it? Have fun!

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.
