1983 scamp 13 window

We just purchased a 1983 13 foot scamp. Both the frond and back windows are solid. I noticed there is slight curve to camper. We would like to replace these windows with ones that open. are there any solutions to do this

Keith, I had both styles of 13í Scamps, and the newer one with the slider window had a flat surface molded around where the window frame would have to seal to the trailer shell. I believe it could be done by someone with fiberglass experience, but with all the other windows and vents, would it be worth the cost to you?

I've seen a few early Scamps that have 3-section windows front and rear in which the center section tips out. Don't know why they discontinued them after a short run. See this one:

Unless you can find something like that, fiberglass work is required, as Dave says, to create a flat window opening in the curved shell. Then, since you'd lose the gelcoat where you made the modifications, you might end up having to paint the shell. You'll probably give up some resale value since it won't look stock.

Sometime around the mid-80's Scamp reshaped the rear of the upper shell to accommodate a flat radius slider.

I agree- how much trouble is it worth? Your two full jalousie side windows have as much or more ventilation area as all three of my sliders. And I believe you have a jalousie in the door to ventilate the front, no?

What you really want is a vintage Trillium 1300 with full jalousies all around!

My 1986 Scamp 13 came with flat radius sliders on the 3 rear windows, curved fixed plexiglass on the front window if you need a date reference.
