I've never liked the way a window unit looks sticking out the back of a camper, so I built (and glassed) a small cover for it. I used 3/4" BCX for the side pieces, and 1/4" BCX for the outside section. I used a strap and slowly tortured the 1/4" piece into making the bend. I then glassed the cover to the camper and have started fairing it to the body. The holes are for the fresh air and exhaust in the back. I will place black mesh material in the holes to hide the AC.

Glassing a new piece of wood in the door for the rounded window. The front bathroom bulkhead area is glassed to the camper.

Cabinets and floor. Dropped floor will get trimmed with 3/4" aluminum angle.

Fairing the front window closed. All rivet holes filled with epoxy. The only hole on the driver's side of camper is the window and electrical hatch.

Thanks Uhaulin. I'll be glad to see it done, too. We were originally aiming for a trip over the Christmas break, but we've pushed it Spring Break now. Better to do it right than rush it.

Nice re-build. I like your shop, you have lots of room to work. Are you going to paint the exterior when everthing is faired?

Yes. I already have the paint. We have to prime it, and then we'll paint when the weather cooperates. I'm painting the top white, bottom black, and I have a vinyl machine that I'll use to cut the stripe. I still need to order some belly band from Scamp because I'm going to continue the line across the door. I have a photoshop picture of the paint scheme we're going to use.



I wish I could say that was my shop, but it's actually my girlfriend's parents. It's huge!

Steve

COOL!

I just want to caution you about mounting the spare on the bumper. Scamp bumpers are about as heavy as aluminum foil, especially older models. Spare tires "flap" when mounted in this fashion even when going over minor bumps in the road. After all this work, you don't want to crack the bumper or frame.

Thanks for heads up, but my bumper isn't factory. I chopped off the rear section of my frame and welded in new steel from the axle back.

Sounds good Steve, hope it works out well for you. I guess my message is just to caution those that think they'd hang the spare off the bumper... and have stock frames! There's a reason when Scamp adds a hitch to the rear they beef up the frame.
