Thankfully many of the important parts stayed with the vintage camper throughout its life, including the deco Vaillant instant water heater.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_slideshow_box images=”6271,6272,6273,6274,6275,6276,6277,6278,6279,6280,6281,6282,6283,6284,6285,6286,6287,6288″ slideshow_speed=”4212″ section_height=”576″ padding_bottom=”25″][/mk_slideshow_box][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Unfortunately, however, are the poor repairs a previous owner laid upon this unsuspecting canned ham. From gluing ply over structural rot to using duct tape in the oven, this Mobil Scout desperately needed to shed its past-life shaddy tree fixes. To address this, we took the vintage trailer down to its chassis, where we addresses bent and rusted beams.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column][mk_slideshow_box images=”6292,6293,6294,6295,6296,6297,6298,6299″ slideshow_speed=”3876″ section_height=”576″][/mk_slideshow_box][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]From there, we installed a new floor and subfloor, while new walls were rebuilt to replace all the severely rotted timber. Before closed-cell insulation, we completely rewired the Mobile Scout; featuring two six volt batteries, a Progressive Dynamics distribution panel, and 12v LED lights throughout. For cabinetry, we retained as much of the original components as possible.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column][mk_slideshow_box images=”6305,6306,6307,6308,6309,6310,6311,6312,6313,6314,6315″ slideshow_speed=”4398″ section_height=”576″][/mk_slideshow_box][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A new Marmoleum floor and linoleum countertop with aluminum trim complete the Mobil Scout’s interior finish. On the exterior, a period-correct layout, and three-stage enamel paint with a satin clear coat gives this vintage camper a truly distinctive finish.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://campereparadise.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Scout-header-GHGJKGJLHGKJHGKJHGKJG.jpg” bg_position=”center center” bg_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_stretch=”true” enable_3d=”true” min_height=”817″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_button dimension=”outline” corner_style=”rounded” size=”large” outline_skin=”custom” outline_active_color=”#1e73be” outline_hover_color=”#ffffff” url=”http://campereparadise.com/?page_id=6116″ align=”center” button_custom_width=”” margin_top=”290″ animation=”fade-in”]Learn About the Renovation Process[/mk_button][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_button dimension=”outline” corner_style=”rounded” size=”large” outline_skin=”custom” outline_active_color=”#1e73be” outline_hover_color=”#ffffff” url=”http://campereparadise.com/?page_id=40″ align=”center” button_custom_width=”290″ margin_top=”290″ animation=”fade-in”]Return to Portfolio[/mk_button][/vc_column][/mk_page_section]
