Of course, JUST before we get to the selling part.

We're on the second-to-last trip before we out our 1977 Scamp 13' for sale and one of the 45 year old particle board upper cabinet doors dissolved off the hinges in my hand.

Well, I've been recently trained on the Sawstop table saw at our maker space, so I buzzed up new doors (with a 45-degree bevel. Swanky!) and I think after a thousands coats of polyurethane, they'll look great.

Scamp doesn't have any in stock, I think they make them custom for something like $45 each plus shipping (guess, they don't have actual prices on the website) so I think this was a good deal.

If you have access to this kind of equipment, I highly recommend building replacement doors BEFORE they dissolve in 45 years.

Very nice! That will definitely enhance the appearance for the sale.

I’m curious… what comes next? Another trailer, or is life taking a different direction?

We bought a new Promaster van and we're converting it into a campervan.

Today in the rain, we chopped two holes in the sides and installed windows!

I've rebuilt all my door and hatch panels on my Casita, yes even the shower door, out of cedar and can't imagine the weight that I cut down on trailer. Plus getting that dark HDM wood out of there to a nice natural cedar makes the area seem so much larger.

Would love to see a picture of this. It sounds lovely. Where did you source the cedar?

Great documentation! With all that work, it is good you had time for dinner in the middle of it.

I do have pictures somewhere on another computer. Just got a new one and I do not have pictures here and right now, my wife and her sister are off camping with the camper. Will try and find picts on other computer and get them to you.

I swear they 'know'...
Our Casita SD17 was without issue during the years we owned it..... until this spring.
Power converter failed, and was replaced
LP and CO detector failed, and was replaced
Maxxfan cover lift gearbox shattered, and was replaced.
And when hooking up in the evening of the 26th for an early morning departure to deliver it to the new owner, the electric power tongue jack went on strike. That was completely stripped, cleaned, re-greased and reassembled.
Our new camper (not molded FG) is now in our drive.

cabinet doors

The first thing I did when I purchased my '77 Scamp 13 ten years ago was replace the ugly particle board doors with 1/4 inch birch faced plywood with quarter round edges glued and nailed on, new stainless steel hinges. They have held up very well.
