Hi from Portland, OR

We just bought a 78 13' Scamp. Looking forward to fixin her up and traveling around with the family this summer. In the process of gutting her out. Good news is the floor is sound and the fiber glass is in good condition.

List of to-dos include:
New flooring (thinking of bamboo)
New upholstery
Brakes? (being towed by a 04 Suby Outback)
Fix a leak from crank out windows
Fix a leak from corner of roof vent
Repair or replace Trav'lr by Elixir 3 way fridge.
Caulk wide seams to Elephant Hyde interior and paint?
New door upholstery
Add circuitry for more convenient outlets (besides one next to the fuse box under the sink)
New water line from interior tank
Possibly replace electric pump for sink

HI Kirk from another Portland (area) resident. There's a bunch of us here in northern Oregon. Any pictures you can share?

If you're planning ahead, we're holding a gathering in Champoeg SP in October. This link will take you directly to the info: Northern Oregon Gathering - Fall Event - Casita Travel Trailer Forum

Thanks for the invite, Donna. We'll see how things work out. =)

Some pics are here:

I wish I had taken some before I started gutting. I'll add to this album as I go.
