    Hi all,
    We are from nw ohio and 2 years ago we acquired my wife's child hood pop up camper an old 84 skamper pup. And it is all original and ruff around the edges canvas has its flaws and some of the outside does to but floor is solid and the structure is sound. We took it camping once and it was fun. Now I was to revamp and fix to original state as much as possible so hopefully i can use this site as a tool. To help repair and find stuff to help. And advice. Thank you

    Welcome to the Portal from N/W Fl Panhandle. Congrats on the Skamper. The good thing is you can "make it our own" as you progress with repairs. Any questions just ask ans I am sure someone on here will be more than glad to assist. Good Luck and happy Camping

    Welcome! How exciting to have the camper from your wife's childhood. That is going to be really special to camp in. I would LOVE to have the truck camper my parents had when I was a kid.

    Welcome from the Nature Coast of Florida. I would buy my parents little “dark side” unit on the spot if it could be found!

    The funny part is we did not look far because it was still in the family basically family friend had it and my father in law borrowed it for the kids to sleep in when we went for a visit during the 4th of july and I asked if he was wanting to sell it. And it was a quick response yes because they had moved up in the world and baught a fifth wheel. So I wrote the 400 dollar check and it was a done deal. For some odd reason there is no title but a good bill of sell from indianas bmv and now comes the fun ohio bmv checks
