    hi ian.. I am very new to this site, I have a 1974 trillium trailer. its my baby I purchased it in 2014 & it is slowly falling apart, I had the door fixed by an mechanic and had a window replaced at a window repair shop because it was leaking & it is still leaking from there. I need to have all the windows resealed as I see some of the wood around some of the windows is rotted. I seen your videos of how u took an original window apart to clean it up. I was wondering if you have anymore videos I can watch. I would be willing to pay for the video if applicable. I plan on attempting to remove windows, put new hardwood around them reseal with Butyl & reinstall but before I attempt it I would like to have a video with what supplies I need before I attempt as I am working outside & its been a rainy season up here. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convience as this is the 2nd year I noticed the leaking Thanks

    I have one of your kits for my 13f scamper. in looking at my door latch and striker it appears sometime it has dropped as much as 1/2 in. have you ever encountered this? I am leery of getting to involved with my door until I dertermine what has happened to cause this?

    Hi Ian

    Can you tell me what size wheels and tires you have used to move the camper inside the garage?

    I have a Dexter #10 axle with brakes and am looking at possibly buying 8" wheels with 16.5" tires. My garage height is about 7'2" but I have a fantastic fan lifted 3/4" on the roof.

    Presently I roll it into place on funiture dollies but it is a combersome task. I think mini wheels would work better and faster.

    I will be picking up my scamp from the factory …maybe march 15, …if time user…do I need to get a good wax job on it right away and what wax is good.

    We agree with your schedule of priority and have place the suspension and axle at the top of the list. Some leaks have created some minor mold issues that we are already dealing with and I have removed the dinette to get at the wet carpet and areas that seem to be leaking to remediate those issues.

    There are several issues that will be addressed in turning "The Skank" back into The Scamp" that we had in our dreams when we moved to buy this little beauty.

    The idea of bite sized pieces of this project are of course poetically just because of it's size as well as our ability to grasp the different tasks. It's been a while since I worked at Bass Master Boats near Lake Herrington, KY but I have worked in fiber glass a little and am not afraid of any task or chore. This will be fun and we will enjoy hitting the road as soon as the weather turns. See you soon...

    Ian, thanks for the reply. We are getting into this reno and working toward making our Skanky Scamp usable again.

    The more we get into this project the more we feel as if we've been taken advantage of by the seller. We are torn between a frame-off renovation like you've completed and finding a balance fixing what's required just to put it back on the road so we can have the experience of Scamping to know if it's something we are going to love.

    We look forward to sharing our experiences and value your opinion as a experienced member of this forum. There are lots of decisions to make about what to fix when and priorities that we have to set as we progress. Stay tuned, because, as you know, things are about to get CrAzy...

    Thank you again for your help. Laura & Bill

    Hi Ian,
    We are big fans of your "kitchen reno" entire Boler redo. We are redoing a scamp and are wondering about interior roof supports which we know we need. Rather than making the wood supports and gluing in as you have done, we wonder if it would work to use the upper cabinets manufactured by scamp in each end of our trailer. These cabinets have been removed and our scamp is losing its shape. Interested in your opinion. Thanks so much. Laura & Bill

    Hello Ian,

    I saw your vids on making windows. I am curious how you sized them before cutting them from blanks. Did you cut them the exact same size as the openings, 1/4 smaller all the way around, 1/8 smaller all the way around, etc?
