I have a habit... I mean Hobby

I like to digitize and embroider... a lot! Since I have a Casita, I embroidered a picture of a 17 ft SD. Then since a big number of members here seem to have Scamps, I've been working on digitizing and embroidering them. Here's my question, in all the pics I've looked at online, none of them have covers on the propane tanks. I'm looking at the 13, 16 & 19 footers, but working on the 19 right now. Do they have covers on the propane tanks like the Casitas do and maybe just photographed by the manufacturer without it?????? Please help. I am detail oriented.

BTW, here's my Casita pic:

Hope I did that right!

Good for you! I wish you much success. The best place to check for stock photos is: http://www.scamptrailers.com/


Notice, no propane tank covers.

I've never seen a Scamp with a propane tank cover, unless it was an aftermarket mod.

Thanks all for the help.
Cindy, I've used many over the years as they come along, but right now I use parts of 2, Floriani Total Control U and DIME Perfect Embroidery Professional. Stuck in the middle is the old Floriani Total Control Pro before they had a falling out and split into the afore mentioned 2 programs.
I would like to get a professional program, but they are costly and I don't want to make that large an investment until I can find a good AND user friendly program.

Denise,
I know what you mean about the user friendly & affordable. It doesn't exist.
Do you sell your digitized file?? I''m not as far along in my skills as you!

Thanks,
Cindy

No, but I sell the finished pics to anyone that wants them. My friends saw mine and said I should make them available to people. I'm not a business person, so I fly by the seat of my britches on these things.

Your friend is correct! The stitch out is just beautiful!
Thanks,
Cindy

Georgious! I'm not able to crochet. My hobby is done with knives and chisels. I hope you post more of your designs.

You could set up a storefront at etsy.com to sell your products/files. Pretty cheap (20 cents for 4 months to list an item.)

I've got a sideline there at https://www.etsy.com shop/rvWidgetWorks?ref=search_shop_redirect

Good way to sell small items with a fixed price.

I, for one, would be interested in having your embroidery on, say, a cap, a polo shirt, a spare tire cover or a pillow, etc. Please make your art available on ETSY and let us know when you do!
