Discussion about camping gear you recommend or have questions about, or camping techniques that have worked well for you. Maybe even gear that is well suited to the Fish Creek experience.

Our 'new' 1976 Scotty Sportsman!

Postby CampADK » Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:38 pm

Kate is a mega happy camper today!

She scored a good deal on a 1976 Scotty Sportsman, 13fter. It's in super shape for a 37 year old trailer! Cushions are like new, windows work perfectly, no water damage, even all the screens are in perfect shap! Quite spacious too. This will be our new trailer for those early spring and late late fall trips to Fish Creek!

So sadly we will be putting up the PJ Snoozer for sale in the very near future. The Snoozer was the trailer that started a lot of what we have been doing in recent years in the way of camping and travelling. Without the Snoozer, fishcreekpond.com would not exist today!

Looks like it is in great shape! Nice layout; someone can nap and someone else still has room to sit at the table. :booboo: :baconandeggs:

Sylvie,

We want to do this one 'Hacker style'. Ie wood boat inspired finishing. Think rich mahogany, and chrome for one.

get new gaskets for the exterrior lights (especially up high) and coat each with a light smear all around of clear silicone, so it will stay in great shape. Does it have a convection heater inside? They work great with little noise and plenty of heat.
