Pop Up Camper

A while back I bought a 1983 Viking Little Gasser pop up camper. Its been under repair for a few months now, but it is finally camp worthy. Its been an adventure to say the least from the first set up and finding girly mags and bongs to trying to find a paint that will stick.

Today I finished painting two of the four support poles. They were all rust coated, but fortunately its just surface rust. It knocks off easily with a wire wheel. I used a spray can of plasti dip. Its ok, is a bit heftier than standard spray paint and provides a plastic feel to the touch. Once I finish up the supports, I will re coat the roof to ensure I don’t have any leaks. However today, I broke the vent in the roof, so I have to get a new one before I finish it up.

I finally took it out on its maiden voyage the other day. We went to aplace called Cutty’s Resort down by Salida, Colorado. I have some pictures from that, but dont have access to put them up right now. I will in a few days.

In the mean time enjoy some pics of the remodel.
