Hello I'm Cameron and just acquired a 1985 Scamp!

Have been looking for years for a scamp and came across one that needs a bit of TLC inside and out and am looking forward to this project!

Sorry this took me so long, been busy past few days

This is not everything for sure. There are countless rock indentations to gel coat reaching fiberglass in front. Mold under fridge and in closet base and who knows where else! Door needs to be adjusted and stress cracks on actual door. Rusted frame which has been wire brushed and painted over with rustoleum high rust primer + mat black paint. Curtain rods need to be replaced, rusted bolts which attach cabinets and such to frame (must need sealed). vent lid needs replaced. About to lift up carpet to see where we are at with sub floor damage, the water ring around the wood coverings in back make me think water damage could have come from above? due to no damage being centralized on wood plank so likely not from condensation. Side window which appears to have just been replaced with Plexiglas glass instead of sliding proper 18x24 glass sliding window which has likely been (silicone) caulked to high heaven which will likely mean difficult adhesion when i replace with proper window if caulking is needed. Belly band at least wasn't caulked underneath but top looks to be with a clear (hopefully) hopefully not silicone caulking. Many stress cracks on top corners of egg shell, some spider some straight line... And some more stuff which I will post here in a few days. I should say I have zero experience doing repairs of any sort so this will be a huge learning curve, esp fiberglass (which appears straight forward) but not gel coat.

Thanks for taking a look!

Thank you for showing the before photos.
Looks like a fun project. You'll learn a lot and have a spiffy trailer when all is said and done.
