For the first time this screwy year we are getting ready to take our Scamp out, We got the last reserve-able site at Shabbona lake state park and even tho it is likely to rain Saturday I am good just to be able to go. Will go Antiquing  if too rainy. Will take my Home brewed "Bobs Back woods Hill Billy AC" made from a Electronics cabinet cooler. It ducts thru the rear window if the weather warrants it and removes without a trace in under 6 minutes and travels in the car. It is only 3,000-Btu and limited to making it good for evening and sleeping but That is about the only time we are inside anyway. Hoping our Kids will make it for at least one Nice camp Fire. The Back Woods AC should get a good chuckle from some of the other campers. But I cant bring my self to install a 5,000 Btu window unit by modifying the camper.  and any of the roof top units made are over 3 times what is needed for a tiny 10'X6'6"space with the shower Bath in the front. . This is sleeping room and sitting at the Dinette for breakfast size camper. It has all the normal accessories like Sink, two burner stove For Coffee!!!, furnace, running-13 gal water system and water heater and 1.7-CF  fridge but all in miniature  even the Lav doubles as a shower if I can figure out how to get it done. A bit of a bird bath if absolutely necessary.  Will also take along a red 286 and an Adalake or Handlin RR lantern for evening illumination.

That's a neat setup Bob. I'm not familiar with your cooling unit... I'm assuming 110 volt? What kind of amp draw does it pull? Neat little camper. Need to find something similar when my little guy gets a bit bigger. Have a blast this weekend!

yes 110V and around 700 watts so under 7 amps. KookTronics using a cheap Kill-a-Watt meter it draws between 5.5 and 6 amps.  Even my Chinese HF 2000 watt inverter generator  starts and runs it no issue. Funny looking but functional.

@salukispeed . . . Shabbona lake state park??? In Illinois? I was there maybe 10 years ago. My brother still goes there quite a bit. He lives in Waterman, my father lives in DeKalb. Small world.

Yes It certainly is a small world. We try to get to Shabbona at least once a year, We are about 80 miles east of there so an easy run for the weekend. We prefer in the fall

Looking for 6-56 and 6-58 Birthday lanterns.
There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.

@salukispeed Isn't Lake Michigan 80 miles east of Shabonna Lake? ðŸ˜  Are you saying you live in Chicago or on the lake front? I was born and raised there.

I like the Billy Bob AC unit. I'm all for off the wall ingenuity. That's a good mod. Have fun as I'm sure you will!

Bob, it's good to see you are getting out; I really like the Scamp-reminds me of a Boler.  That's a clever contraption you have on the back end, too.  I hope you either can enjoy the weather, or have good luck antiquing.

We live on the south side of Chicago ( Oak Forest ) We made the short 80 mile trip and the Hill Billy bob worked well once the sun got behind the trees . Was noisy inside as expected but the blower fan design is axial and noisy but easily made it down to 75 where the thermostat was set and dry air  so sleeping was good  Poured rain all Friday  afternoon, 2-1/2 inches plus but stopped in time for a nice camp fire around 10 Pm  Poured again after midnight but were dry and comfy enough.  Thanks for not laughing too long at the AC  Will continue to refine it all summer.
( Boler) 
The Scamp factory burned in the 80's and are made in the some of the same Molds the Boler were back in the day, Boler had the better fiberglass floor pan and the Scamp is wood and fiberglass on the bottom side so similar but not as water damage proof.
