I would probably add the tabs, I use a lot of that pink insulation board to make molds for fiberglass. It forms well and is quick to do. You can apply the glass right over the foam and them once cured just pry the foam off. Tabs are nice as I think they add some strength and are light weight. I actually removed all the rivets that held on the fiberglass cabinets and tabbed them on. Stronger and no leaks!

like i said earlier I have to either add new tabs, or support the new seats somehow???

opinion on which would be easier?????

Wow, I never cease to be amazed at the talent everyone on this site has in the renovation and decorating of their little trailers. Your Scamp looks so comfortable, love the kitchen, the cabinets, and the table, just beautiful.

What paint and color is that. Looks like the Interlux ocean blue I was looking at using myself.

The paint is a single stage urethane acrylic from Summit Racing call bright aqua pearl. It needs to be sprayed and this was my first attempt. It did not turn out as well as I had hoped and one day I will spray on another coat. The paint and supplied cost about $250.

Wow, love the combo table/magazine rack! The best part is NO support pole to get in the way. What do you charge to custom make one for a cute little UHaul 13

Wow, fantastic job! The front table with racks/shelves is ingenious. Can't fault your taste in cars (MG) or bourbon (MM) either! ;-)

love your redo!

I LOVE what you did with the bunk area! You're obviously very clever. BTW: We picked the same nickname for our 13'. I guess it's a logical one, eh? My son says it looks like a gondola. Thanks for sharing your photos. give us ideas. . .

Lots of changes and what we think are improvements. We still have the battery box to finish, some wiring and black trim to put on.
