Vintage Finds -My 1963 Mobile Scout

It was love at first sight when I saw this baby, sure she needed some TLC but, I saw the potential. I was smitten with the original teal appliances. I had all the best intentions of starting our renovation right away. But, one thing came up, and then another, and then another. My little scout just sat. Eventually we fixed some exterior things. We removed the ugly air conditioner and put in a window for one thing.
Needs a little cheering up with some bright curtains!
The interior needs some serious cosmetic work. I've been pondering color schemes. I'm definitely thinking something bright that'll compliment the teal. Red? Orange? Yellow? What do you suggest? I've seen some fabulous renovations that I'll share soon.
And I definitely wanna replace those cushions.

there's lots of storage spots
She needs a good clean but, then I can start looking at fabrics. I have big dreams for my little camper. Any other camping or road trip enthusiasts out there?


  1. Have you seen The Shady Dell? You may find some inspiration from their trailers.

  2. A Hawaiian theme would certainly look good with my ukulele. Thanks for the link to the Shady Dell -I love it!

  3. I love orange. I love orange and aqua.
