Fixing Up My Scamp

A few pics of some the refurbish project on my 92 Scamp 16 footer. A lot more to do.

Very nice Bill, did you add the wood cabinets above the side windows?

Awesome work so far, Bill! The "Scamp" logo step is a nice touch.

Looks good and seem that you had allot of fun to keep you out of trouble. Spring will be here soon and you'll be ready for it.

Nice work Bill! I'm curious did you remove the cabinet covers before you painted them? When I did my paint job I also painted the cupboards on both sides above the table, glossy white so they look like fiberglass. Keep up the good work! Scamp on.......

Thanks for the positive feedback. At first the refurb of our Scamp seemed pretty daunting but now I think we've about got it to the point of we can use it. The cabinets over the dining table were made from one of the originals which I disassembled and used as a pattern. The originals had gotten wet and were peeling apart in places. My wife had the idea of blue cabinet doors after seeing some on a TV show. Removed doors and hardware, painted front and back and Voila! blue doors. I custom made the cabinet pulls. First I made apples and then I made little Scamps. What the heck....I used them both. My wife says to be careful and don't glamp up the Scamp too much. The step was made out of some pressure treated plywood left over from the floor project.

I hadn't noticed the little Scamps before. How cool! How about a close-up?

Agreed--hadn't noticed the apples or little scamps--what a super idea and a close-up would be enjoyed!

The knobs are pretty neat. How did you make them? You know you could probably make and sell the Scamp knobs as I am sure there are plenty of folks here that would buy them.

Scamp knobs

Here's a couple of pics of the Scamp and apple knobs. I am an art teacher in middle school so I have had fun creating some original things for our trailer. They are little hand built pieces of pottery, fired and glazed.

Awesome! How did you make the Scamp one? Did you use a mold?

Ahh, pottery! I was thinking wood--I like pottery better for this, more washable if necessary. How cute! You have true originals there! Nobody will have the same thing. Thanks for the pics!

The Scamp knob was made by a technique called slab hand building. Clay was rolled out with a rolling pin to the desired thickness. Scamp shape was drawn on the slab with a needle like tool called a pin tool. The windows, door, and other features were carved into the blank with the pin tool. The clay was allowed to dry, fired in a kiln, painted with glaze, and fired again. No mold required. The apple was made by pinching out clay into a apple shape, fired, and glazed. I like to make them like this so each one is unique.

Ahh, how do you turn them into knobs to attach them to the doors? I don't see a screw going through the fronts...(and even then, they'd need a bit of a shank...)

Gilda (Jill-da) the Gleeful Glamper here to say I love your original and fanciful decor. I agree with your wife, in that glamping can be overdone. I think you have reached a delightful balance. The key is to be sure that you both love it!
Happy Glamping!
