Smile scamp revamp (1993 16í)

Hi, Iím Alex, Iím the proud new owner of a 1993 scamp 16í and I couldnít be more excited! The trailer is in great shape and just needs mostly cosmetic updates (itís straight out of the early 90ís in there, but then again so am I).

Today i took a creeper for a look around the underside of the scamp and thankfully the frame and the OSB are in great shape. I only noticed one weak spot in the fiberglass up in the wheel well, i can access it pushing down from the fridge control panel too. Has anyone else had this issue? Wondering if i should try a fiberglass patch or if thereís a better way. The spot is tiny, size of a quarter or so.

I also plan to take out the old brown carpet and replace with cork flooring! Iíve seen plenty of floor replacement threads here that Iíll revisit and I am also open to any suggestions. One of my main questions is, when I have the carpet taken up and the glue scraped, is there a coat of some sort of paint I should be considering putting down underneath the floor underlayment while everything is already exposed?

Also..this is quite the luxurious idea..but has anyone had luck with those 12v heating element pads that roll out underneath flooring? Iím toying with the idea of installing one or two of those for when Iím connected to shore power

Thanks!

Welcome to the group Alex:
Take some pictures of your gem and post them so people can see what you plan. We all like to share.
Weight is usually important in any repairs: have added some weight in doing past repairs, the axle and tires have a limit. An example would be we upgraded to C rated special trailer radial tires (STr) but still have the axle limit to consider. Read on the site and ask questions of the group they will try to help
