There are two things I love: camping and DIY projects. The part I didn’t like about camping was sleeping on the ground. With this DIY project, I’m done sleeping on the ground. Say hello to my newest DIY project: a 1963 Aloha Travel Trailer also known as “Scamper.”
I’ve been looking for one of these for several years and I bought this from a neighbor. She and I worked out a deal – and I did the paperwork to get a title. It’s official now – after 4 1/2 months of correspondence and phone calls with the Division of Motor Vehicles. It’s mine and I have the license plate to prove it.
Here’s a tour – all “before” pictures. I’ve been itching to work on it but Brad talked me out of doing too much – until we officially owned it. It’s our new little project! I think I’m more excited than he is – he loves to sleep in a tent. I told him he can continue to sleep in a tent on the ground but I will be in the “Scamper” – in comfort!
It’s totally trashed but has lots of potential. I’m picturing it being totally adorable when we’re done!
Here’s a little tour….
It’s dry and doesn’t leak – so look out! It could be visiting you soon!
Where should we begin? What should we start with? What would you do with this camper?
