What A Guy And His Girlfriend Did With This Dumpy Old Camper Is Brilliant. And I Want It.

Home improvement projects can be a fun way to 1.) indulge in a hobby and 2.) add something awesome to your home. Mobile home improvement projects are the very same (if not cooler). An incredible couple found a vintage 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman camper and decided to do some light tinkering (let me rephrase, they decided to do some heavy-duty tinkering that would make any carpenter weak in the knees). This is officially impressive.

 


This is the finished project, but it’s how they got there – and what’s on the inside – that you won’t believe.

This is what the camper looked like when they bought it.

It was… a mess.

They started by removing the aluminum siding.

Then, stripping the paint from it.

camp6

There was a lot of water damage underneath… 

camp7

So it would need replacing.

camp8

Like, completely. So they knocked it down.

They removed the floor and began prepping the frame.

Priming.

Primed, waterproofed and ready to go with new hardware.

camp12

They added on a new floor…

Then, traced the aluminum siding into some new walls.

Ta-da! All cut out.

The walls set up and appliances placed for measurements.

Then, they began building onto the interior.

Some had to be built outside of the camper and moved in.

Removable drawers? Cute and functional.

Then, the cabinets…

They also added in a ceiling fan. Next, they caulked and puttied the inside of the camper.

And the interior? Funkalicious.

If you’re anything like me, you’re suddenly feeling a strong urge to buy something old and turn it into your own new, remodeled creation. This couple definitely made it their own and have a pretty awesome finished product. I’d sleep in it.
