New Scamp (me, not the Scamp) owner

Just introducing myself as a Scamp (first fiberglass camper) owner. I have a 13', think its an 81, still brushing through old paint to get to the serial #'s. This unit needs some refurbishing and lots of tlc. The floor under counter needs replacing and the front interior supports for the bunk and lower seat. All the hardware has a rust coat as it was closed up with dampness for years. It was sitting idle in New Brunswick for many years and now will be brought back to excellent condition here in northern Maine. I'm no craftsman by any stretch of the imagination, but have restored 2 Scotties, one Argosy and one Avalair. I hope I can reach out to all of you for advice. Without such sites my previous restores would never have been possible.
I was going to put in a picture but having trouble with the download.
Thanks for welcoming me in.

Hi Dan, welcome to FiberglassRV. I responded to your post over on Facebook... I was the one that mentioned what I thought was damage to the front fiberglass portion around the frame and thought maybe the axle was a low-rider!

At any rate, welcome... glad you're here and thanks for posting the picture. We love pics here

Welcome to the group. I'm sure you will have many enjoyable hours at this site, as I have. Ask any question and you will get an answer. Not always the one you want but an answer just the same. Again, welcome

Probably more answers than you can shake a stick at.

Dan, I have a 1991 Scamp 16 and our son has a 1977 Scamp 13. I have made a number of modifications to his trailer and ours. The modifications to ours can be seen under Modifications/Preparing a 1991 Scamp. We live on the NH seacoast. If you're planning to come to NH just PM me and I'll give you the address.

Right now we're in FL, heading west. We plan to drive thru Main this spring on our way to Newfoundland.
