Update August 2014.
Omgosh what a trip this project has been.
So I ended up gutting my Scamp
. I'm rewiring and adding new running lights
. I will need to remove and reinstall my escape
hatch soon. I have bought ProFlex RV caulk to seal up the screw holes in my roof that were created by the PO.
I have stories of help that wasn't much help and redo after redo that have cost me precious money out of my already stretched budget.
I will be okay. Especially now that I am no longer depressed about all that.
I will be full-timing in my 13 ft Scamp. Mostly off grid boondocking
in the Southwest over the winter.
I have a few wish list upgrades I would like to realize at some point in time. I would like a flush mounted one burner Origo marine alcohol stove. A tongue mounted metal table similar to one I saw here somewhere would be sweet. Also, a 100 watt solar panel
and sealed agm house battery
would be nice as well. And I think it would be great to add a lounge/napping chair to my equipment.
I'm preparing to repack my van and make a bit more progress on the Scamp before my scheduled moving date of 1 pm on Sept 7. Then let the adventures commence.
