Pictures of our 1983 13' Scamp after our refit

Here are a few photos of all the work we have put into our Scamp over the winter https://picasaweb.google.com/Jon.Tur...eat=directlink

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.

We used the single sided foam tape from Scamp. We ended up having to apply contact cement to get it to stay put though.

The front table is great. It looks like you put a lot of time into designing it. I like the kitchen also.

We are currently not near the camper but will be on Friday, I will try and rememmber to take some more pictures and post them. I am ok working with wood/fiberglass but it was a pretty simple design, jump on in!

The upper bunk tab provided an anchor point for the shelf/table and became a little shelf. We plan on sticking some simple keepsakes there to make it more like home.

well I am in the process of a pretty major door reshaping/refiberglassing/rewindowing, .........I added an internat aluminum frame to it, almost back together, ....bondo and painting is next......

than i will move onto the front dinette, but the first camping trip is coming fast so i would rather put it back in how it was for the first trip, then start the front reno when we are back, .......but i like the built in magazine rack specifically,


did your trailer already have the frame enforcements for the front dinette?, cause mine does not, so i will either have to put them in, or build on top of the raised section of flooring, .....I am thinking of putting it on top of the raised section, making the seats the same 24" high as the main seating area, .....then just making the table to match, only issue is the tab on the main table is slightly lower than the tab at the front???,

this is also a reason i liked your front table cause it drops down slightly from the front tab, ........making it at a proper height for a table, ............

thanks for taking pics when you get a chance.......

Ok, I think I might have had it easier than you would. The front of the scamp was in 2 levels. The center section was the same as the main floor and the seats were rasied up about 6 inches. I cut the original bench seat and removed the center section the glassed new ends on each side for the seats. The shelf is fastened to the floor and the tab from the original bunk bed. The table is also removable and fits to make a bench for another bunk if we ever need it. I made the table the same height as the rear table and it works well for 2 people.

HA, yeah did you have to raise up the original bench in order to have proper height seats??, the tabs at the front seem a little low to make good seat with the raised floor??

i am drawing it out right now, and i will either have to add new tabs for the new seats, or create a support from underneath which would eat into the storage space......, or else the new seats would not have anything supporting them in the side of the wall?? going to measure again, ........I might be wrong though, but i think the exsisting tabs are too low!!!

just measured, the tabs at the front are only 9" off the raised front floor, but the rear tabs are 13.5 inches off the raised rear floor, .........so


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


opinion on which would be easier?????
