Hi BAMA, I live on ths south side of Oklahoma City near Moore,OK. Just down I-40 from you!

That sounds like a very good price for the axle. Scamp quoted me $310.00, plus shipping charges from Minnesota. Did the trailer company give you an est. of labor hours?

Bama, twenty years ago I MIGHT have been able to install the axle, but I haven't welded anything for years. And, overhead welding was never somthing I was able to do!

If the installation was a simple bolt on project, I might be able to do it.

However, it is mcuh smarter for me to pay an estimated 3-hours of labor than screw up the installation!

I'll be looking at your site to see your photos of progress.

New thread

I have posted a message on the forum "members helping members" about the wood rot in the floor of my Scamp 13 in case you might be interested.

And, want to offer me some advice on repairing this rot!

Thanks,

Bill

I agree with this.. HOWEVER, I also wanted to add that removing a small area to work on what is underneath is not exactly problematic as long as you are careful and work slowly - it can be glued back in place very easily. I did this when I had to replace the tabbing that holds the front bunk support in place and after gluing it back, you really can't even tell it was ever peeled back.

That said, I did completely remove a very waterlogged section below my rear window and I probably won't be re-installing that (but I did save it, and I may use some of it for making repairs to other small damaged areas)- it was completely covered in mold on the back, so I am planning to replace it with a layer of reflectix with a layer of vinyl glued on top once I replace the wood table support - it won't be an exact match to the existing ensolite, but as I am planning on painting ALL of the interior of my trailer so it will match well enough when I am done
