We pulled our 1981 Scamp
13' home the last week of March. I know you all have seen one before, but we got one in pretty good condition (and paid a bit too much). The previous owners took good care of it inside and out. But of course it needed a little cleaning and I can't resist starting in on the modifications right away.
So far this includes cleaning the exterior shell, adding an exterior light
, adding a side hatch door and new power inlet, shelves in the tall closet, a removable table extension piece to make the bed a bit wider, three new tires
, and pulling out the ruptured leaking copper gas line to the stove.
Still to come - new gas line, new battery
box and charger, adding more 110v outlets, a radio (and speakers?), rewiring the 12v accessories, and I'm considering a new axel and brakes
, and brake controller and a sway bar stabilzer.
It is pretty close to being road-ready now, and we are anxious to get camping. We're also planning to attend Eggfest / Scamp
Camp in LaCrosse, WI, September 15-19.
More mods to come soon.
