Great work on your project. I love all the pictures. Don't forget to wear sunglasses for the first time you see the new paint job out in the sunlight.

Hi, as the story goes, did not get everything done before the maiden voyage to Virginia/North Carolina. Forget cabinets, bed layout, and new table - LETS GO CAMPING,

Really it was good, Learned a ton of stuff, laughed a lot too.

First off, stuff shifted in transport, few little things added to the list of must have's

Then the first two days RAIN -lots of rain- Our buddies have a 13' scamp with a awning attached, the one you get from scamp - Not going to put that type on water runs down the edge and too small, saw a Coleman event canopy at a camp ground, that's the one I want, oh yeah when I get home and start searching - discontinued - hey thats the just my luck, well thank god for craigs look, found one in Arizona, paid as much in shipping as for the product, should arrive by wed.

Since I Had those two vents on the side and nothing to block the air, where did I camp? Well - at MILE HIGH Campground in North Carolina. OH yeah and of course it was cold, say in the 30's and then rain, BUT I did find out cube heater can keep you toasty.

Well enough jabbing put new stickers on the scamp, and before we took off replaced all the screws with stainless and caps, (And NO, NO, silicone) Butyl then pushed the screws thru, used acorns on the inside

If you notice I use a plastic frig vent for the upper exhaust for future frig, it has screening and it worked out to stay below the band, Adrian and myself could not find if out if the little trees were also on the front of the scamp

On the maiden outing, decided the door needs work,

Added interior bracing, and a door stop and then also an outside 12v light(wiring in the future)

Also on the trip decided maybe another type of closet just to right of the door when you come in for hanging stuff.

Now the big push is to complete the cabinets, re-work the door's of closet and overhead ( have them cut out and picked up the hardware) And what to do about the big lack of wall covering where I fixed the fiberglass

(Had to learn how to make pic's smaller to up load)

new door stop

I swear these things are like a DRUG, once your into them cannot get enough of them


I bought it on the spot, found out all the interior pieces were in the guys yard, loaded everthing in the scamp, hooked up to the truck and my friends think I am hatching these eggs

Hee! Well now I guess you can't carve the Ensolite out of the second one to patch the first one

But you can purchase new Ensolite from IR Foam Specialty. The difference is that it does not have the "white" vinyl bonded to the face, so you have to paint it. I suppose you could try to texture it, but I would probably just paint to match your existing and then set it off with seam tape. To each their own though.

Thanks mr D/squared (DD) I was looking for some type of girl avatar carpenter, but I remembered that my Gram always told me I was a maverick, when I started in the Carpenters union in 82', not many chicks in the field then. But in any case this little picture is more like me, red hair, and always making fun of myself or a situation. Like the day years ago when I told my boss "Why is it, we never have enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over again? Fired that day, oh well

Nice job! I have my '81 all gutted, ensolite is all ground off - total rehab including all new floors. My exterior is in rough shape, and I'm going to have to give it a new coating of something-or-other. Your looks mighty fine, but you didn't say exactly what it was your partner coated or painted it with. Would you mind telling us what went on, brand names and all?

Sure Mr Jon W, here is the skinny from Adrian,

Stone/gravel gaurd sprayed on first - available thru Napa, Dupont, Glasurite
its clear and applied in the front below the window and slightly around the front curves

Paint - Mfgr. Glasurite, color white, acrylic enamel

No clear coat applied but a small amount of "flex-agent" is mixed with paint ( this is the type of paint you use when painting auto bumpers) This is readily available from Napa etc. You use this to make the paint more flexible to work with fiberglass and it should make it less apt to chip

Hope this helps Regards Suger

Adrian also cautions that the fiberglass must be wiped down very well (Miss Rays has noted in past too.) because fiberglass can hold grease, wax, silicone etc. If not prep'd correctly paint will "fish eye"
Adrian also noted an 'anti fish eye' additive can be mixed with the paint
