Well here they are…..the official “before” photos of our “new” 1987 Scamp Fiberglass Travel Trailer (here’s the Scamp website for new trailers) which we have named “Scamptastic” (you can find more pics on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook by searching the hashtag #scamptastic ). Last year we rented a super fun teardrop trailer from Little Guy San Diego for our 9th anniversary (see the following image):
Here are the “before” photos….”before” cleaning….”before” washing….”before” anything!
Both windows need to be replaced but the rear window was the worst. The windows are supposed to be plexiglass but by the looks of the cracks on the rear window (scroll down for more) I’m pretty certain it’s actually regular glass, and the weight of the glass probably has something to do with how the rubber seal had separated and was sagging. The tape job looks nice though :)
Here’s the front window (plexiglass) and you can see the two cracks that have started. In a future post we’ll show you a photo of how these cracks got much bigger while driving up the freeway!
This is the rear window again. See the cracks? Totally glass, right?
Don’t you just love the realistic look of the wood grain pattern throughout? Ooooooh, fancy! Opposite. We’ll be taking care of that in due time :)
So there she is! #scamptastic is alive and well and growing stronger everyday. By the time you read this post we’ll have already done a few necessary updates in preparation for a small maiden voyage to Sonoma County, and of course we’ll officially blog that stuff for you to see. We have a lot of ideas for Scamptastic but we have to pace ourselves so we don’t get too distracted from our house projects. Stay tuned for more updates here on The 91204 Blog and also all over social media:
See you soon! And if you see us on the road be sure to snap a pic and post it and tag #scamptastic ! :)
