New Play-Mor II owner

So about 2 years ago I was driving around and I saw this in someone's driveway. I left a note in the mailbox and 2 years later I get a call he is looking to sell it. I got it for what I think is a fair price.
It needs some work and a good cleaning.
First I need to replace the roof hatch with a fan for the summer months, new tires and a spare. The new cushions and flooring. Maybe new carpet on the walls.

Looks great! Two years... I'll bet you're a good fisherman, too. Patience is rewarded!

Happy camping!

Yes I know I need a drop hitch. I borrowed this one just to get it home. Was only 6 miles from my house.
Will get some interior pictures up soon once I clean it out a bit.
Interior is very much like a scamp with bunks. It is a 1987 from the reg

So cute! Great that you left a note and were rewarded eventually! Amazing the PO kept the note, although we've kept one, now, too, just in case.

Funny how often people will just come up and offer to buy these eggs! Often interior unseen. Those of us who have one or want one understand...

Front Window

Is the front window on this plexiglass or regular glass? Is the window frame made so a new piece of glass can be cut to fit inside? I am talking with someone in my area about purchasing one, but the front window was broken out. She said it was plexiglass, but she thought it was supposed to be regular glass and someone told her glass could be cut to fit. I figured since you are currently working on one maybe you could let me know. Thanks!

Mine is a plexiglass in an aluminum frame. I am replacing the plexiglass since it was cracked. A piece can but cut and fit. I would not use regular glass just in case a rock hits it from the TW.
I have my camper totally stripped and body is coming off the frame this weekend

Thanks for the info. Is it just a flat piece of plexiglass? I am trying to get an idea of the cost/difficulty of the repair. I have not seen the trailer yet and she just has a piece of wood over the area now but the window frame is in good shape.

My camper was flat piece of Plexi 1/8 thick. I am not sure if it was original but I think it was. Mine had cracks in it so I have a new piece I will be cutting and installing.

Oh, yeeouch! There's always the local welding shop. They can weld, add bracing metal or both. Or a new frame.

Paul had our frame taken to Machinists, Inc. where he used to work and they did a scan of some kind and welded and added where they said it needed it, then Paul scrubbed down the rust, primed and painted it there with white industrial metal paint. They helped us a lot with Peanut. It took several weeks.

Maybe call some weldshops. Some of them can make new frames as well as repair old ones. Gonna cost you.

We got a crane operator from Mach. Inc. to lift Peanut off the frame.

Old Peanut coming off the frame.
Repaired Peanut showing white tongue (white so I don't fail to see it and trip).

BEST to you; this is a vital job. We also found 4 out of 6 bolts holding shell to frame were rusted through; the other two were half gone.
