    Yo Cory – it’s a ’65 Scotty, not a ’75.
    What an awesome rebuild job, too!

    100% impressed at these DIY badasses. I’m inspired and intimidated at the same time.

       That’s the thing that stood out to me, too! The guy who did it posted it on reddit, which is where I saw it, the image hosting site was specifically designed for reddit IIRC. Who knew digg was even still a thing?

    Wow.  Aside from the lack of curtains across the bathroom and bedroom entrances, I wouldn’t want to change a thing about this.  Beautifully retro-modern.

    I am SO impressed by this.   Wonderful of them to share the process, too.  May they have great fun camping in it!

    This guy is a pro restorer, unlike the couple in the article and their excellent DIY effort, but I’ve read articles about FlyteCamp in our local paper and he does amazing work.

    That wasn’t a rebuild, that was a build.  Save for the skin and sink (anagrams, how fascinating), it looks like everything above the frame went in the trash.  Which really makes it all the more impressive.

    Ikea should start making caravans.

    That was…super impressive.  WOW.

    I want to know:

    1. How long it took.
    2. Total cost including cost for the old camper.

    Very awesome!
