I have no idea what fabric costs these days, maybe $50 is to little, I would go higher, I really don’t want to turn my Scamp lights on at night with the curtains I have. $75 for a set would probably be more realistic for a set, and fancy add-ons people might want could be extra.
I asked for blue cushions, but I didnít notice until I got home that I have the green ones. Theyíre sort of the color of military uniforms, the ones they wear in the field, not dress greens. I would like curtains that I canít see through for when I turn lights on at night. I bet others would like to be able to change their curtains too. I donít know what Scamp is putting on the new RVís. If you came up with a price list and brief description of fabrics you would use, I would mention you in a Scamp blob. Think about it. Of course, you are a Ďwoman of leisureí (ha ha, as if we ever are) and maybe not interested in a venture, but as quick as you started, you could turn it off too. MJo
Hi! How are you? I was thinking of all the sewing you do for your Scamp. Have you ever thought of having a Ďlittleí business selling curtains for the 13? I used to make all my clothes but I havenít made anything for years, and now there arenít many, if any, fabric shops around. My local one closed years ago. So, the new Scamps come with these beige translucent curtains that really arenít good for anything. Maybe they give a little shade or privacy during the day, but I doubt it. They might be a manís idea of trim, but I think most women, who think more about Ďdecoratingí donít think they add much. Anyway, I bet you could check with Fiberglass Rv and see what their ad rates. And I would be willing to Ďcasuallyí mention your curtains in one of my comments. How much would you need to make on a set of curtains to make it worth your while? I would pay $50.00 for a set of new curtains, ones that you canít see through.
would you go to California with your Scamp? quite a trip. I think that would be a bit much for my car but I am thinking a little about visiting friends in Austin Texas if I could go a southern route down the east coast and along the gulf coast to avoid mountains. Of course, I doubt it would happen, too much else I have to do around here. I will go up to the coast of Maine next summer and think about going to see the Niagara Falls. There is so much to see, California would be a wonderful trip. I traveled by car back and forth during the 40’s when my Navy father moved from base to base so I know you’d have a fantastic trip. I really enjoyed seeing Minnesota and Wisconsin, beautiful, cows, barns, corn fields, and PA, along Rte. 80. I didn’t mind the driving, I enjoyed the scenery so much. It’s great that you and Don really make use of having your Scamp. You’ve given me the courage to venture out. thank you. MJo.
I heard from a MA resident who mentioned the NH gathering in Oct. I told him you told me about it already. Gosh, Iím having such a good time being a Scamp owner without ever going Scamping !!!!!! But I have gone out and sat in it and hooked up an extension cord to charge the battery, while I turn on lights, etc. Iíve even thought about sleeping in it, in the yard, to try it out. I donít know if I told you, when I told my sons, they congratulated me!! My eldest even wants to get the 16í for him and his wife. so allís good. Getting the Scamp has rejuvenated me, just chuckling to myself about taking a trip.
Karin, so glad to hear from you!! locked out but the Scamp attracted attention in the neighborhood so I have help whenever someone sees me struggling with the door. Maybe now I will get to know my neighbors, I am sort of a recluse. I didnít put water in the tanks, prior to my going to Backus, I received your note about not having to winterize without full tanks. I did order a cover when I got the Scamp. I just received 2 jacks to put under the frame. I have to do something about the surface Iím storing it on, builder said he is putting some hard stuff on the sandy driveway so maybe I can get some of that for the space Iím thinking of using. First have to get my old sailboat towed from the space and the tree above it trimmed.
So, I finally got some time to deal with opening the Scamp door. The builder’s son, next door pulled it open for me. Then after I fiddled around in it, looking at the miscellaneous stuff in it, I was finally able to get the door closed. But now again, I can’t open it? Would you email me a picture of the trailer side of your trailer door latch? I don’t know if mine is broken or what but I need to find out because I can’t use it if I can’t get in it and close the door when I want to lock it up. Very Frustrating. Scamp can’t help. I may have a locksmith drill it out and install another. Other than that, I’m home and tired, long trip. take care, MJo
Hi. I’m home after 26 hours on the road from Monday morning, long story, my gps put me on 80 instead of @0 and no dog friendly motels, so I toured PA a little and headed home. Son called and kept me company and awake for the long drive home to the Cape. So, we’re home and packages at the front door including Hot Logic and water filter. So anyway, home, Scamp I’m back yard. All safe, Comet dog exhausted from keeping us safe and Blackie, cat, glad to see there’s food in his dish where he left it. So all’s good. Thanks for your companionship and encouragement over the long haul. I really appreciate it. Hope you found some goodies at Kittery. MJo
