Nice looking job Floyd. Wish I could do that to mine but with the building/roof design and a 16' wide door, nope. Probably be cheaper to build a bigger garage out back, mmmm, honey, I've got an idea

There is another alternative.... Thanks to the housing crash, the switch was free including the new shop.
The first is the house with the 8ft doors, the second is the replacement house with the brand new shop in the back with a 9ft door and 10ft ceiling...
Only problem(not) is...my Scamp won't fit in the attached garage on the new house!

One of my tenants works for a garage door installation company and he has related to me that two of the bigger sources of rework jobs they get are from:


1. Those without sufficient knowledge, who should seek outside advice before attempting just about anything, and don't.


2. Those that did their own work and didn't consult with the authority that did count, the county building department.


Things may be different in other venues, but in the Golden State, building codes are usually enforced with vigor.

Are you allowed to dress yourself or fix your own meals? Just imagine a kitchen knife in the wrong hands or a a loose shoe lace at the top of the stairs!

WOW ! from a 26 foot Winnebago to a 13 foot Scamp that is a significant change. Welcome to the egg community. That is quite a drop in size but I'll bet there isn't much of a drop, if any, in your enjoyment in traveling. That enjoyment may actually go up as you will have more dollars to spend on the things that make travel fun and lots less being spent on fuel and camping spaces. Lee

And of course, once on my way I won't stick to anything according to the plan, LOL. I just wanted to introduce myself and start poking around on the forums. I only have one real help question: Where is the link to the thread about installing a window air conditioner into the side closet on the Scamp 13. There must be one, LOL. I can't be the first person to have thought about this as an alternative to the factory roof air-conditioning unit!
Anyway, happy to be here and happy to see so many fiberglass RV owners.
After lots of research, a window a/c in the closet is too much work and result to make it worth it. Thanks everyone!

Small window air conditioner in rear window

We owned a 2006 - 16ft side dinette, front bunk that we had a window shelf with a telescopic support extending to the ground. To fill the space around the air conditioner to the camper we cut foam.

I will see if I can find a picture. We are going to do this for our 13 deluxe we just purchase.
