With work that nice, you are welcome to come work on my trailer any time!

Have you considered laying something over the SS floor pan for those cold days? I'm thinking of something like either of these products below might be nice.

wow what a great job. Did the old wood floor have fiberglass coating on the top and bottom of the original floor? I Saw some white coating on the old floor photo but could not tell if it was carpet glue. Scamps are supossed to have a fiberglass coating over the flooring I was curious if yours had that or not, since it rotted out? Thanks.

Ken -

The Scamps have epoxy on the bottom, but not on top. Top is simply painted white. with Killz or something similar...

I really like the way you remodeled the bathroom! You can pull out the porta-potti and have almost a regular sized shower. It looks great, too. Good work.

My 1988 has an fiberglass resin soaked floor. Maybe the older trailers the stuff was painted on, but not now. There used to be a picture on the Scamp Trailer webside that showed the plywood in a tub floating in liquid, That was the resin.

Interesting... Mine is also a 1988 (16'), and it does have resing coating, but only on the bottom. I know this because I just replaced a section of the subfloor where it had rotted from a water tank leak - not a pretty sight nor a fun job.

It definitely is only resined on the bottom of the chipboard flooring on mine, and had a thin coat of white paint on the top. Looked the same as in the photos in this thread...

On my 1989 scamp it have a coat af resin just on the bottom of the floor
When i replace the floor i put a coat of resin on 2 side of the wood and after scelling with fiberglass i put a pther coat on 2 side and i paint the top with a epoxy floor paint
I also repaint all the floor on the scamp with this paint

I use the scamp many time this summer and fall and all work perfectly as a new scamp and more !!!

I love my rv and i was entirly satified . the shower have space a it easy to clean

Yvon,
Nice results for all your work. Not only have you made repairs, but you have made it better than it was originally. The stainless steel shower pan was a great idea. Is there any insulation under the shower pan? I'm imagining it could be cold for the feet. Roy's ideas would help cure that!

It's good to see another "older" trailer brought back to life,
Kurt & Ann K.
