1967 Camper Restore

1967 Mobile Scout Camper Restore

Glampers are the newest craze. Glampers are vintage campers with glamorous renovations.   On August 11, 2015, I purchased a 1967 Mobile Scout to restore and hope to have her ready to show in April.  I named her “Gypsy Queen”and spent hours on Pinterest researching decorative ideas.  While I found many great ideas, I realized I was going to do something different.  You will be able to follow the restoring process here.

How it all began…

I shared a Glamper post on Facebook where a couple of high school friends and I were commenting.  Tim chimed in, “I have a 1967 Mobile Scout for sale.” I made arrangements to look at it.  She was in great shape and had been stored inside most of her life.  Everything was in working order except her taillights and the step which are both easy repairs.  Arrangements were made and “Gypsy Queen” was purchased and transported to my home on August 11, 2015 where she was parked until the home owners association sent a letter to move her.

I spent the weekend cleaning her and testing everything.  On October 3, 2015, Bart & I removed all hardware and primed for painting.  On Wednesday, October 7, 2015, she was transported to the storage unit about a block away.

Paint color was chosen and painting has begun, but due to time constraints and temperatures, painting has not been completed.
