Ramblin' Rose

My Husband and i just bought our first RV! She is a 1984 Scamp (13ft) and we will be taking her on a month long road trip from Austin, TX to Olympia, WA starting next week. We have a grand adventure planned with several National Park stops along the way.

We are doing tons of repairs and remodeling before we head out:

new floors
Deep Clean
Repairing a side window
all new upholstery
fun paint job
fix some leaks
replace the yellow trim tape(<---any help here would be great!!)
and so on and so forth

this job is a lot more in-depth than we originally thought it would be but we are still very excited to put some work into this cute little Scamp. I have been reading a lot of the threads on here and it has been very helpful.

i will be posting before and after photos soon!

Smile A new camper

Welcome to FGRV! How exciting to have a 'new' egg!!

Of course you are also checking and servicing the running gear, repacking wheel bearings, had the frame checked, etc.

Hi Elizabeth, welcome to FiberglassRV, we're glad you found us. Scamp sells seam tape: 50ft Seam Tape Roll

Personally, I like this solution FINALLY... I made peace with my seams!

Thanks Roger for the tips, we are definitely getting new tires and getting it all checked out.

Does that 50ft roll cover the whole scamp? do you know of any good alternatives? we are leaving town soon and don't have time to wait for shipping.

"Fun paint job". I'll say! Should be a croud gatherer at a Scamp-out.

Welcome! And Congrat's! I too would love to see interior pic's! 13ft'ers are so cute!


I second Roger's suggestion of repacking the wheel bearings! It's a must especially when you just purchased and are planning a long trip!


Enjoy your trip!

We are huge dead fans. I will be posting interior pics soon along with more pics of the outside, we finally added her name and a dead quote...bound to cover just a little more ground.

Wait a minute! Love is like a Ramblin Rose is the MC5 not the dead. Yes I know the Dead did the Ramble on Rose song but our Motor City guys were two years before. And I must say a bit louder.

Of course that most excellent paint job would go well with either band.

In the picture it almost looks like on the front right you have a hint of a cloud with a silver lining and touch of gray. What is the Grateful Dead quote?
