In 2016, I purchased a 1968 Serro Scotty. It was a big project but I didn’t realize how much of a project it would be. I named her Genny Jean after my grandma, Geneva, and mom, Gloria Jean.
I faced many challenges with this project. It was beyond my skill set. I hired 2 different contractors but their workmanship was shabby. So, the project was put on hold.
The camper ended up sitting in a family member’s shop for a couple of years. Then, I had to move it to a paid storage unit from October 2020 until March 2021. That’s when I rented a Uhaul and drove her to PA to be restored properly by Michael Leichty.
He rescued my train-wreck of a camper. I shared my vision for her and he turned it into reality. Her transformation is incredible.
If I had to do it again, I would have an experienced professional to rebuild the camper from the beginning. It would’ve saved me a lot of time, heartache and money. Why? Because I ended up paying for some things twice.
I’m grateful that everything worked out. I want to encourage you to keep pushing forward when things seem impossible. Don’t give up. The end result will be worth it. I look forward to enjoying Genny Jean for years to come. She is my dream come true.
