Replacement Caps

I was just sent this link for caps, as I was told Scamp no longer sells replacements to owners. The Web site advertises all kinds of colors, shapes and sizes.

Replacement Caps

They only sell one size now. Up until a few years ago, they used a smaller washer and snap cap on the curtain rod rivets. They no longer use or sell the smaller washers or caps, so another supplier is needed for the smaller caps on older trailers. To use the larger caps, you need a larger washer, which requires replacing the rivets - all 24 or more, depending on model.

I 've found that if you spray paint the new caps with a coat of Krylon paint ,they last about twice as long as the unpainted caps.
Another handy tip I picked up from Donna D.

Donna D. rocks! I can't wait to meet her in person.
Painting them in general helps. I used a small artist's brush with Interlux marine paint. Whatever works to give those little waxing annoyances some added UV protection.

Pro Deck is the maker and the caps are really cheap when you order a hundred.
Why waste time painting them when it takes just seconds to snap the old one off and a new one on?

If you replace deteriorating caps in time the bases will remain good.

Gives your trailer a fresh new look too.

True Joe.
Some people have a lot of money and can afford storage for spare parts, but they have little free time.
Others have little money or storage for parts, but they have a lot of free time to be resourceful.
People do what is necessary which works for them.

Didn't mean to ruffle your tail feathers!

I can replace one faster then I can paint one.
And I think the last small easy to store bag of 100 was around $7.

We had the opportunity and privilege of meeting Donna D at the 2015 Northern California rally in Quincy California. One more thing I can cross off my bucket list . I'm sure it was not as memorable for Donna D as it was for us.

Great to hear Steve! Meeting forum folks in-person just strengthens our online community.

And Joe, if you have one large cap to spare, thatís all I would need to replace the one that went AWOL on me in NM last year before I painted the rest. As a full-timer in a 13í Scamp, I canít justify carrying/storing 99 caps in premium storage. The marine paint will probably go bad in my hot car this summer, and Iíd like to replace and paint it to match all the others.
If you have one to spare, PM me for my mail forwarding address, and I should receive the forwarding sometime this summer. At the latest, sometime around Christmas. Hope to meet you in-person some day!

Perhaps not as easy when you use sealant under the caps. Probably need to (or should) clean up the old sealant in the process, adding to the time it takes.

Corky -Hi Hidalga you should have ask me for a cap at the last rally. We care extras with us all the time. Last Nov. 2016 while at Scamp I ask to buy 100 of each size cap and was told they no longer stock the small caps. So I was only able to get the large caps. Thank you for the information on where to order the small caps.
