I'm new to this forum also and just came across this build you did. You took a lot on by the looks of it for sure. Great job!!

Thanks everyone, it was a fun build and a great time using it, hopefully this thread can be helpful for those in the future that want to restore these old campers, but it is on to other projects, just sold her!   :)

Hi, nice job on your skamp. I picked one up a couple years ago. Question, where did you find the roof corner mouldings?

Nice rebuild - probably spent $95.00 too much for it though!  Looks great considering what you started with - so nice to see something that would have been in the dump get rebuilt. Doing something similar with a 30 year old wooden skiff I picked up a couple of years ago. Learning woodworking!

Well bikerbill,you did a fantastic job of saving this old camper.

I guess is shows just how strong these campers even the wood framed ones.

Thanks for taking the time to post this awesome rebuild.

Amazing job! I will give it a shot to re-do the roof of my skamper that I just picked up. Question: Do you know if I can remove the roof without popping it up? I think it would be easier for me since where it's sitting kinda high. Thanks!
