Scamp 19' No Looking Back!

Well I finally stopped procrastinating and jumped all in with both feet! I ripped out the orange carpet, sink, water heater, and base cabinet last week.

Once you clean it up and paint it, it will smell much better. Check the floor really good if you have bad spots you can still get a funky smell. I am going to put my rear floor section in after dinner. I plan to move my electrical cable to the curbside and also add a city water to the curbside also. I want to put a ground fault recp. where current cable hole is if it will cover the hole. I just got my LED tails light in the mail today so add that to the list.

When I bought it the Oregonian "seller" said that it had been sitting in the backyard for years. His Step Grand Dad had driven it to Oregon to visit and while there flew back to Michigan to visit his old hometown. While he was in Michigan he passed away. The seller had no idea what town he passed in or where in AZ he had been living, thus it sat. Finally, after a number of years, he decided to get rid of it. When we opened it it was very musty on the inside from sitting in the moist Oregon air locked up and unused. The other wall was not as bad as the one pictured. I think a lot of the black is from the fridge vent and 30 years of accumulated dust getting in behind everything. By the way it did clean up just fine with a lot of TSP and clorax and it smells a lot better also.

Actually had checked the floor prior and it is solid as a rock. I got very fortunate as I don't see too many that don't need a little floor work. It did clean up real well.

You're in it now!

On your fridge, is that a screen or something in the top rack? Mine just has a gapping hole. What's the plastic bin for? Is the trim around the name of the fridge fake woodgrain or something else? It's hard to tell.

Second, if you end up ditching the stove, could you save the grills for it? My front one has one of the pieces snapped off. I'm debating getting one with an oven from scamp, though.

I've been messing with new wiring all day, yay! I'm doing it all, which I didn't think I would have to. The old stuff leaves a lot to be desired.

I'm curious to see your cabinet solution, I'm just too lazy to change them.

"On your fridge, is that a screen or something in the top rack? Mine just has a gapping hole. What's the plastic bin for? Is the trim around the name of the fridge fake woodgrain or something else?

I believe that piece is a flap made of plastic. Put it down when you need shelving and open it up for tall stuff. I'll have to look when I go over there tomorrow as to if that is wood grain or not.

"I'm curious to see your cabinet solution, I'm just too lazy to change them."

Easiest cabinetry you'll ever do. Basically just building a front. I've got some really cool ideas but don't want to divulge until it's done in case I change my mind or it doesn't work LOL

I bought one of those Chinese made ADTH stovetops brand new for $39.95 on ebay. I put one in my Trillium and it worked great. If you want parts of the stove let me know it has all the clips to hold the grates in place also. This stove has rust and had been poorly repainted.

Mine are on the curbside and I'm moving them to the driver's side. It seems that all the hookups in the parks are on the drivers side.

Thanks, it looks far worse than it really is. I wanted to get the really ugly documented before it was cleaned up. I'm sure mine isn't the only camper to look this grubby at the start of reno.

My bad. The hook up need to go to the drivers side. Spending too much time looking out the back up the trailer.
