Hi fellow Scamp lover:
I hope to be purchasing a 1979 13' scamp this weekend.
Do you know if the old windows (the silver crank out ones on the side) can be changed out for the new ones?
I'll bet the new ones are more efficient, but don't know if they are the same size.
Thanks and hope to see more pictures of your work

Windows can be repaired with new parts if they no longer work. Windows can be replaced with new if openings are the same or if you can replace with larger windows. Newer design windows usually have radius corners, while the older design have square corners, so you would have to fill in the the square cornered opening with fiberglass or replacement windows can be large enough so window opening can be enlarged enough to eliminate the square corners.

I can measure the old jalousie windows when I get home, if you would like? This way you can find a larger window to replace. My idea is to cut yoga mat to put inside the plexiglass and jalousie windows when I sleep. This will help with heat, light, and privacy. I think that it'll fit nicely behind the curtains. I don't think the jalousie window is any less efficient than the plexiglass... But I could be wrong?

Sent from my Sony Xperia Ultra - they ran out of "big" phones so I settled with this.

Ohhh my. Please don't change those wonderful jalousie windows for the radius. You don't know how lucky you are to have them.

Jalousie's can be kept open in the rain, something the sliders can't do (without adding a fugly part to the outside of the window frame). My Scamp is just a bit to new to have come from the factory with jalousies. As much as I love my Scamp... I really, really wish I had jalousies.

If you need help with cleaning, parts or repairs, we are here to help with all kinds of info.

Besides, complete window replace is in the top four biggest mod expense (axle, A/C, 3-way frig, windows.. not in any particular order).

Keep the money in your pocket and spend it on fuel to go new places and site fees. Make memories, not this mod. YMMV

I did a bit of fiberglass work today. Fiberglassed the back of all of the holes in my overhead galley storage. Fiberglassed in plywood brackets to make the closet have two additional removable shelves (other than the bottom shelf). Also fiberglassed in the bottom shelf bracket to remove the two holes. Will fill all the holes once the fiberglass is dry. Will use resin/fiberglass dust filler, sand, then prime over. I will be a weekend warrior, but slow and steady will finish her.
