Since acquiring a 1987 13' Scamp
about 3 years ago, it has gone thru a series of changes all designed to enhance its livability and improved appearance. First all manufacturer and prior owner decals were removed and 2" wide 3M striping tape applied below the shell parting line in three colors, ABS wheel covers were added to tires
rims and spare and a 13" white spare tire and propane
tank cover added. Then the changes started. The list is long and I will enumerate a few of the them without posting pictures or descriptions of them. If anyone sees one that they might be interested in make a post and I will set up a picture and brief description. With this post is a shot of the dining table rework to increase the clearance between the table corner and the sink counter. We found it a bit difficult to squeeze into the seat with the original clearance of about 8". So to increase the clearance to 12", 4" was cut off the back end of the table, hardware reinstalled and a filler board fitted to the front of the seats to accommadate the cushions when in the bed setup. Hardly notice the loss of table top surface and it sure is easier to get seated.
Here's the list of mods:
1. Stereo sound system, CB/Weather Radio & switchable PS
2. Gravel guard conversion to awning

maintainer mounted on gravel guard

This is quite an extensive list but we feel our little egg is right up to snuff and very comfortable. We enjoy it and hope you will to. Incidently she is towed by a 90HP VW Vanagon Westfalia. See them both at <http://users.erols.com/nesu>
