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.

[IMAGE]

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

[IMAGE]

It was… a mess.

[IMAGE]

They started by removing the aluminum siding.

[IMAGE]

Then, stripping the paint from it.

[IMAGE]

There was a lot of water damage underneath…

[IMAGE]

So it would need replacing.

[IMAGE]

Like, completely. So they knocked it down.

[IMAGE]

They removed the floor and began prepping the frame.

[IMAGE]

Priming.

[IMAGE]

Primed, waterproofed and ready to go with new hardware.

[IMAGE]

They added on a new floor…

[IMAGE]

Then, traced the aluminum siding into some new walls.

[IMAGE]

Ta-da! All cut out.

[IMAGE]

The walls set up and appliances placed for measurements.

[IMAGE]

Then, they began building onto the interior.

[IMAGE]

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

[IMAGE]

Removable drawers? Cute and functional.

[IMAGE]

Installing the front wall.

[IMAGE]

Then, the cabinets…

[IMAGE]

Making room for the water tank, cargo, etc.

[IMAGE]

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

[IMAGE]

Because then it was prime time again.

[IMAGE]

And the interior? Funkalicious.

[IMAGE]

Some insulation would be good.

[IMAGE]

And then finally installing the aluminum sides.

[IMAGE]

Masking and painting the window frames.

[IMAGE]

Ready for a paint job!

[IMAGE]

Complete with awesome orange stripe.

[IMAGE]

Wait til you see what they do to the inside. It’s PERFECTION – click Next Page.

Looking. Good.

[IMAGE]

A new door, windows and external light was added.

[IMAGE]

Glued together some strips of wood to make cool countertops. This is the finished product (after sanding and sealing).

[IMAGE]

Drawers? Check.

[IMAGE]

Running electrical wires (all 110v AC).

[IMAGE]

Testing the LED lights…

[IMAGE]

The finished product kind of speaks for itself.

[IMAGE]

Adorable.

[IMAGE]

What a beaut.

[IMAGE]

It looks retro (well, it is) but it’s completely updated on the inside.

[IMAGE]

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.

Share this with others. Inspire them.
