Interior makeover

Hi. I'm also new to the forum having bought a 1993 13' a couple of weeks ago. It looks pretty good as is, but I would like to redo the interior ceiling/wall cover. Scamp told me it would take about twenty five yards of fabric to recover. I also asked them about using the sponge like material used on the interiors of combines and tractor cabs. He said it can be done and can work well. The material has small holes that help insulate and sound proof. It is 3/4 inch thick. Has anyone done this or have information about this?

In reading previous post I see where a twenty year old axle is suspect. Thanks. I'll be looking closely at that also.

That Tractor headliner sounds

That Tractor headliner sounds like it might be a good solution.  In the 70's and 80's Scamps they used a similar liner we call Elephant Hide, which was extremely tough and durable and easily cleaned and painted if needed.  The rat fur they went to in the mid-80's should be what was in your 93.  I have talked with some folks over the years that have replaced the liner material in their Scamps/Casitas and the material itself is not expensive, but the labor to do the job is extensive and not fun.  sad 

I wouldn't necessarily assume the axle needs replacement yet and there are several ways to check.  If you can post a picture showing a side view of the trailer so we can see how it is sitting folks can weigh in on your axle.  I've seen the torsion axles last well over 30 years depending on what has been done to it over it's life.

Thanks for the reply. Sometime after the first of the year I plan to get started with the work on the Scamp. This past spring I gutted a home built camper I had bought and did quite a bit of work on. It went well.

I plan to post pictures as the work progresses.

Thanks, Larry
