Home improvement projects can be a fun way to enjoy a hobby or add something impressive to your home. Mobile home improvement projects are the very same (if not cooler). A cool couple found a vintage 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman camper and decided to do some light tinkering rather they decided to do some heavy-duty tinkering that would make any carpenter weak in the knees.
There’s nothing like bringing back something that’s destined for the scrap yard and turning it into something amazing! It’s the best kind of DIY. You don’t only save a ton of money but you get to be creative as well. Just like this couple. Seriously, this is some impressive stuff. Check out their progress shots below.
This is a vintage 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman Camper. It looks okay on the outside, but inside it needs a ton of work. A couple decided to buy this one and transform it into their dream portable home. What they did was unbelievable, and it’ll make you green with envy. Let’s check out how they turned this trash into a cozy mobile home.
While the outside looked decent, the inside was a total mess. The ceiling and wall were falling apart, and there were wires everywhere. It seemed like a typhoon wrecked the place. But the couple had a plan on how to turn this trash around. They started by removing the aluminum sliding and stripping the paint from it to prepare it for a fresh new coat.
After removing the aluminum sliding, it turned out the wood had a lot of water damage over the years, so they had no choice but to remove it. They needed to replace it because it was like the campers skeleton. A weak frame is not safe, so they had no choice but to knock it down completely. But it was a challenge that the couple wasn’t going to back away from.
9. New Frame
They removed the floor and began working on the frame by making it more secure and waterproof. Then after prepping the frame, they primed, waterproofed it, so it’ll be ready to go with the new hardware. They had to take their time working on the most important part. It must be strong enough to carry the weight of the camper and for long travel. The base is done, let’s move on to the other parts.
