Emily, The SEARCH pulldown above right has a site specific Google search for FGRV. It's close to the bottom.

Jeff, check out the Glass Clown site for tips on fiberglass repair. You probably don't want use Bondo to plug holes if you want a durable repair.

Welcome Jeff,

I just love the idea of the rebuild on your new / older scamp. I will be checking for new updates and photos of your progress. I am from Canada and I thought our weather was tough on trailers but I think you may have found a winner. I bet it will look great after you are done. Good Luck with the renovations.

Jeff what the story behind this?
Looking at the gap at the bottom of the door it looks like the whole trailer may have been sitting in 4' of water - which would explain the total floor rootl. Caught in a flood zone?

Dunno it's history. UPS is coming today! All new hardware in 3 boxes and the new axle is coming tomorrow. I'll post pics of all the goodies needed so far for a full redo of my 16' scamp. The Atwood heater came in last week. I chose it based on low voltage to operate an supposedly quiet fan.

Thanks for the link Jeff! We must've been typing about the same time. Are those the 7" 'School Bus' lights? They're 'bout the only ones I saw that are similar??

Cut open my door today with diamond cutter disk by dremel and removed about 25-30 pounds of wet pressboard. I'm replace wood at the hinges, around the window, door handle and fill the rest with spray in foam. Gonna fiberglass on the window to help block future drips

Smile When have you seen a white elephant?

You said, " Walls and ceiling is covered in a white (maybe in 87) elephant skin looking rubber."

That may not be true. Our elephant skin is NOT white, never was. It a light gray/tan looking color.
