1983 13' Scamp Redo

I'm Sandy in central NYS. Hoping this is a good spot to document my progress. So far I've torn out that icky seam tape and used caulk instead. Scrubbed the whole interior down with Kaboom foam with bleach as there was mold on the walls here and there. Painted with a good latex with primer and just finished putting floor tile down. That's where I am at this point. Hubby wants to add a water pump and I'd like to change the faucet for something a little higher. Looking for interesting new knobs. I've already made new curtains....pretty simple. First pic is Scamp leaving NJ, home of prior owner.

Hi Sandy!! I'm looking into having my 82 Burro repainted.. white similar to original & hopefully it will look as nice as yours!! Do you mind me asking how much your paint job was?? It appears to be somewhat limited.. I was quoted $1500.00 but have no idea how much it will run! Is that reasonable or expensive?? Thanks for any help you can give me!! I have a 13 foot 82 Burro!! (His name's Burrito!!)

Karen, I've done nothing to the exterior yet. I'm going to use Barkeepers Helper to clean it then some kind of refinisher/wax. You must be seeing something I'm not. :-)

Thanks, Sandy.. I thought you'd redone the outside, too!! Sorry!! My trailer needs to be repainted due to all the oxidation, etc!! I was given a quote of $1500.00.. Maybe if someone sees this, they maybe able to give me an idea if that's reasonable or not! Sanding, paint, clear coat, gel coat, etc.. (forget the order!!) Thank!

Check through the posts, Karen. I know others have mentioned what they paid for their paint jobs. Quite a range, depending on what you have done. Mine is oxidized, but I'm understanding s rubbing and restorer will take care of that.

Sandy, nice work so far!

It's been discussed on various forums, but the reason your photos appear sideways is that they were taken with an iPhone and you took them in "portrait" mode (with the phone held vertically). The iPhone shows them in the correct orientation because it reads metadata that is part of the picture file, and knows how to orient them. When the photos are uploaded to another platform (like this forum), the metadata is stripped away. The photo appears sideways because there is no instruction included in the file on how it should be oriented.

The answer is simple. Save the photos to a PC. Then, with your PC's photo editor, rotate the photos so they are in the correct orientation, and save them. Upload the photos from the PC and they will appear right side up.

Or, always take your iPhone photos in landscape mode (with the phone held horizontally). They won't be flipped when you upload them.
