Siesta is finally done, my 76 scamp

The project is finally done! I’m showing it in three parts. The rear view shows the new tire cover “Sleeping Sun”, which is why were naming the trailer ”Siesta”. The tail lights are LED and should show up nice at night. The door shot shows the curtain and rods made of 1/8” x 1/2” aluminum. I didn’t like the feel of the interior door handle and put some black shrink to fit covering over it. The interior of the door was sanded and I just painted the fiberglass. The interior shot shows the 2 person dinette in the front.

This shows the hinged table to get into the seat near the kitchen. I built a cutting board for over the burners, the cutting surface was purchased at Target, it was just the right size, and I installed the sides. The kitchen has a pull drawer, a little drawer in front of the sink that I built, and a lower area for garbage. I used small hinges in the overhead cabinets, which help hold them open and closed. When I extended the bed 11”, I had a nice space where the floor dropped. I split it into 2 spaces, 2” was used as a wire/ propane run over to the door side. The other space will be used as a pantry. I wanted an canned or heavy food low and at the axle. One shot shows what we are using for clothes storage, the two big ones in front. The others storage containers in back will be used as spacers to push the front ones out and also to have additional storage. A bungee chord fits in front to keep them in place. The red and white bag has the awning poles and a loop in the bag to secure it to the bungee support. The last shot shows the “Control center”. From the bottom up it has, Propane/Co detector, Fire extinguisher, power center (AC & DC fuse panel), propane heater vented to outside (I made the cover and put a graphic on to match the tire cover), solar power monitor, battery monitor, dead man switch for the furnace, 3 light switch and 2 storage spaces. That’s a lot of stuff in a small space.

This shows the storage in the dinning area. The lower space in the seating is storage for the awning, chord and hammer. The one under the seat stores the Porta-Potti and the screen door behind it. I made a little area that also stores the TP next to the potti. I left the bed out to get around and show things better. There are a couple of full size shots. At the foot of the bed, next to the control center, is a tall cabinet for jackets, since I lost the closet by widening the bed. I have 14” clearance for my feet. I have a shot with the bed in, it’s 58” wide and feels great. You can see the curtains that my wife sewing up. The front, door and rear window have curtain rods top and bottom, the two side windows have them at the top and a bungee chord at the bottom to secure the curtain at night. I couldn’t work out a rod at the bottom with the opener in the way. The last shot shows what’s above the dining table. It has two switches, two AC and one DC socket. It was an interesting project and I look foreword to using it this year.

You've done very well in such a short time. Some of us take years to accomplish all that. I like your cupboard layout. Thanks for all the pictures they are well appreciated and you've given us all some food for thought. I hope to see it up close one of these days.

Thumbs up

kudos on such an efficient use of liminted space...perhaps the makers of these trailers should review your layout to allow for such a nice big bed!
congratulations!!

I'm speechless and no longer looking forward to working on my interior! How do you people DO this kind of stuff? Where do you get the training??? And why can't you live closer to me?

Dan, YOU ROCK!

Dan this is a yacht on wheels! You need an anchor on the spare tire.

When do you plan to start customizing Airstreams?

Regards,

Matt
