Last week I became a co-owner of a mid-60’s Scout camper. My brother and I purchased this cute little camper from my good friend, Aubrey.
Five years ago, when I met Aubrey and learned about her awesome camper, I was drooling thinking of its adorableness potential. I never would have imagined I would actually get the chance to be able to make it over.
I know absolutely nothing about campers. So I’m glad I have my brother, who is mechanically inclined, to help out. It’s going to need some help with the electricity, water tank and wheels. That stuff is way over my head. But I can do the inside renovation. There is some water damage, and I used to think I would be way out of my element, but the more I look at it, I think I could actually tackle it.
Here are the benches, that double as beds. The tops (which were removed already when I took this picture) slide together to make a bigger bed. The table, also removed at this point, folds down for a eating area.
The little storage closet with pantry.
It’s going to be a lot of work, but it’s a tiny camper. And it’s usable as is, so we will be able to use it throughout the summer and as we renovate it slowly.
Here’s some vintage camper makeover inspiration.
Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!
