This could turn into a very costly investment. This couple renovated their serro scotty camper. They stated that they paid $650 for the camper and $5500+ on top of that. This gives you an idea all the work that was involved in the renovation:
Here are 2 vids of renovations, as well:
I would definitely find a very reputable business, if you do decide to have your camper renovated.

If you are not planning to do it yourself, we would need the area you live in in order to find someone to do the work.

If there is an RV place near you, either sales or just parts, I would start by asking there if they know of anyone around you that does this type of work. You should also do a google search for camper repairs in your area. From your photos, it's hard to tell how extensive the required repairs will need to be. If it's too bad off, it might be more cost effective to do some looking for a camper in better condition.


I would start on Craigs List. Probably the most important part to consider is the frame and axel. If they are badly rusted or damaged, that alone will be a huge undertaking, as that is the base of the whole trailer. Think saftey first. Just a thought. Good luck.

This depends on where you live and the budget. It also depends on how handy you are, to do some of the work, or even someone close to you. If you want a professional, go online and use your zip code for any suitors. Ask if they give free estimates and check references. This project can be costly depending on the need.
