Need Scamp Closet Door

I have a 2001 16' Scamp, Layout 4. When you walk in, on the left is a closet with a door above. I'd like to add a door below and put in shelving but Scamp told me that they no longer have the Oak colored wood that was used in mine. I believe it's dark oak. Does anyone have a door out there that would work?
Thanks,
Steve

For Scamp cabinet doors I use 1/2 oak cabinet plywood and router the edges. Home Depot sells full sheets and Lowes sells half sheets. I stain with Min-Wax (Golden Oak) and use a satin urethane finish. FWIW on Casitas with the lighter finish, I use the natural wood with no stain.

Scamp did change the door colour but and its not really a big difference. I purchased a new upper closest door a couple of years ago for my 92 and although slightly darker it is hardly noticeable.

If you can take a look at a newer Scamp and compare so you can see the actual difference.

Thank you Carol. I was told by Scamp this morning that they no longer have oak at all. It's Cherry that they have now and I have a feeling it would be very noticeable. I may just get some plywood and stain it.

Hang in there someone gutting out a Scamp might step up with some for you. I got some replacement doors that way. The cost of mailing it might make it a bit painful though.

I too was disappointed when Scamp stopped stocking the oak when the cherry started up. I thought it would have been nice to keep a supply hanging around for owners of older trailers (my 2012 has oak too). Anyway, from what I see here, many people make doors themselves that are much prettier and not made of mdf. If you have the woodworking tools and skill set, I say go for it. Had I been good with wood, that would have been my direction.

I've dealt with old stuff my entire life So, depending on your expectations (and some aren't happy unless everything perfectly matches), make your new door obvious! Like you did it on purpose:


Move the top door down to the bottom.


Buy/find/make a picture frame door, paint it purple(!) and put a favorite picture in the frame.


Cut a piece of wood to size, cover with batting for a pin cushion, wrap in contrasting upholstery fabric. Use this door to hang notes, pictures, etc.


You get the idea... have fun with it!

When did Scamp stop with oak? My deluxe has oak April 2015 we picked it up.

Ken, your deluxe Oak doors are different. People are talking about the fake MDF Oak doors on the standards. I am sure the deluxes still have the solid oak doors.

Need Scamp Closet Door

Thought I'd put this out there again. I need a closet door 18" wide X 32" tall for a 2001 Scamp. I've attached some pics of the colors. I'm just not wanting to cut and router one since I don't have the right equipment. Hoping someone will have one for sale. (and hardware too if possible!)
Thanks,
Steve

Scamp Door

I think I may have what you are looking for. Mine is from a 2003 13 foot. It is the MDF (fake wood) with the rounded edge that is stained black, 18 x 32.

It is in good condition but shows the the telltale signs of this material, slightly bowed, the surface laminate is a moisture barrier and the untreated back allows more moisture to penetrate causing a slight bow. This is normal for this material, just from humidity changes.

I am in the middle of remodeling mine and replacing all the "wood" work so it would be available soon.

I have never done any "business" on this forum so I am not sure how to proceed. You can email me tweistar at synergia.us

Hope this helps

Tom

If you decide you want to get rid of the MDF, I was able to replace all my doors out of one sheet of 1/2' plyboard. Just find someone with a table saw and a router. Some lumberyards will do all the cutting for a nominal charge.
