I'm just happy to not pack up all this stuff every time we want to go, besides not having to worry about having a soggy tent to dry out.

On my trip home from Backus, my wife flew into Rapid City, SD and we spent the weekend in the Black Hills. Then we put about 3,500 miles going out to California for Thanksgiving. That was a cold trip, even in Santa Cruz, CA it was below freezing. Then we got about 6" of snow in New Mexico. I can't wait for this spring to come.

Wow!!! Wonderful job. I plan on borrowing a few of your ideas for my 82 Perris Pacer.

Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Maxine, I'm glad you were able to find an idea to use. I researched many ways of doing things while working on the trailer. This site really helped.

Danny,

I noticed you said you sanded and painted the fiberglass interior of you door. How did you do it and what did you use??

thanks

I used a random orbital sander with the coarsest grit paper I could find to do the initial sanding (to get the glue gunk off the glass). I then used progressively finer paper until I was happy with the surface. I finished painting it with the tinted Zinser Perma-white.

Very Nice Job!

Danny,
I was just reviewing your photos, and admiring your work. You really took advantage of every nook and cranny for storage opportunities. Great ideas here, thanks for sharing!

Brent and Francene, thanks for the nice comments. I'm looking foreword to the "Great weather that's coming" and using it this summer.

Francene, I took a look at your trailer re-build. Wow, great interior and exterior. It looks like you did a lot of work on the lift mechanism.

Your Scamp is lovely! Really like the floor storage in front of the bumped up dinette/bed floor and the split table. Can you still drop the front table down to make a single bed?
