Vintage scamp repair questions

I may be buying a old scamp it doesn't have the cushions for the beds are these reproduced and where is the best place to find them? Just wondering on the cost. Also how difficult is it to replace the lining on the windows if the leak?
Any other common problems with scamps from the 70s I should be aware of?

Unsure of the question...

What do you mean about window lining and replacement?

And what vintage are you talking of, because there have been changes through the years.

window leaks

Regarding window leaks:

If any of the tilt out windows leak, remove the window, clean and re-seal the mounting flange to the fiberglass using 3/4" x 1/8" butyl tape, then re-fasten.

If non-opening plexiglass front or back windows leak, remove window, clean edge of window and fiberglass, and re-install using new rubber molding.

Other possible concerns:

- torsion axles lose shock absorbing capability after 15-20 years (replace axle)
- plywood floors collecting water from leaks tend to rot over time (repair or replace rotten floors, but also find the leaks)
- propane lines should be inspected, leak tested
