Hi, Ronnie

Looks to me like butyl tape is called for:
Dicor Butyl Tape
Works great for most kinds of sealing on RV's ....

Thank you once again Francesca! Oh, by the way, the 2nd camping trip in the Scamp went flawless! We knew where everything was this time. LOL It was cold, so I placed a small electric heater in the camper and it had it warm in just a minute or two!

Glad to hear you had a good time, Ronnie- isn't it nice how quickly small spaces heat up?
On the subject of warmth, etc. in the project trailer:

Do you have any plans to install insulation in the walls etc. before you cover them up?

Thanks!

Francesca

Yes I do plan on installing insulation. Im not sure what kind it is, but it's blue and it's sorta like a thick piece of cardboard. Just cut and fit. I will look at it when I get home and tell you what kind it is.

The old insulation that I'm pulling out is the roll kind and it is horrible on the skin and lungs. I have to remove it very gently to keep all the particles out of the air.

Yeah!

That old fiberglass insulation is nasty to handle...
Long sleeves, gloves, and facemask- and you'll still itch when you're all done!

It's bad stuff! I can see the little particles fly off when I pull it out. Really does a number on my lungs.

The new insullation I'm using is Dow Residential Styrofoam insullation. Honestly I didnt do any homework on it. Just bought cheap insullation that looked like it was easy to work with.

Didnt get a chance to work on it today and it doesnt look like I will be able to tomorrow either. But I can sure see it all coming together now! Cant wait to take it camping someday. It's starting to look big on the inside after camping in the Scamp twice. LOL

Hey!

You don't by any chance live in a state that allows you to tow two at a time, do you?
How hilarious would that be?

I'll bet your tow vehicle could do it, too- the trailers are so small!

Ok, tomorrow I'm planning on getting back on this project. Looking forward to it after a few weeks of being very busy. Losing an hour of daylight in the afternoon has been a killer too. Hopefully I will have a good update tomorrow or Sunday. Just hope the wife doesnt have other plans for me this weekend that I dont know about yet. LOL

Things dont go as fast as I expect. Thought I would get a lot done today but I always have set backs due to my inexperience. Thankfully I dont have to be in a hurry.

I got some butyl tape put in the drip rails today. The drip rail screws also screw into the corner wall boards which I did also. Im very close to framing in the rear wall, which is something I thought I would have finished today.

Thank you for the words of encouragement JohnRR ! I thought I had replied to you this morning, but my post is not here.

Did a little more work to it today. I'm starting to see how everything is going to come together, as in the "big picture."

Hey Ronnie!

Just dropping in to check on the project...
With the Holidays and all I suppose you're busy with other things, but I wondered if there's anything new to report!

Here's some news from my end:

On a trip to Eastern Washington I spotted this little Scamp looking lonely and neglected out in a field.

I've been scheming ever since about how to convince whoever owns it that I'd be willing to take it off their hands-
Provided the price is "right", if you know what I mean...

What do you think?

Happy Holidays to You and Yours!

Francesca

I worked on my old camper Saturday for a little while. I really dont know what to say. Nothing is square or lines up right. And the wall I'm working on has several bends in it, so I am trying to figure out a good way to frame it up. It's just slow go.

Thanks for checking on me!

That's a nice find! Hope you are able to get it. I think I can see the letters through the weeds and that it is a Scamp. Correct? Does it sound promising?

Hi, Ronnie

We've been remodeling our bathroom, so "Nothing's square or lines up right" sure sounds familiar.

I haven't tried to contact the owner of the Scamp yet.
I obviously don't need another trailer- but the Greedy Capitalist Dog in me keeps barkin' its "buy-low-sell-high" bark!

So mostly I'm just fantasizing about how to get it for next to nothing
I'm thinking that timing is everything- maybe I'll move on it a few days before Christmas when some extra cash might be attractive to the owners!

Francesca
