Acorn - Scamp?

I was headed back from ice fishing & saw this camper what looked like a Scamp sitting near a house out in the country. The camper looks like it hasn't been used in quite awhile so I was going to see if they'd part with it.

Is Acorn a model of a Scamp?

Poor thing, looks like it could use a loving home

Yes, Acorn is an early Scamp. Somewhere in our archives is the history. Basically, Evelands couldn't use the Scamp name for a short while, so they badged the trailer as an Acorn.

I think 1979 was the year of the Acorn.

As I understand it, there was a lawsuit between the company that made the Scamper trailer and the Eveland Company over the use of the name "Scamp".
Until the lawsuit was settled, all the trailers were labeled "Acorn".

"The Acorn was produced in 1979 for one model year after Scamp was sued over the use of the name by another RV manufacturer. They won, and resumed production as Scamp by 1980. Scamp actually went into production (I believe) In late 1976."

Good information. I have a 1976 S-13 that needs a mojor rehab. I never knew it was from the first year of production. I had always thought an Acorn would be a collectors item but I may already have unique trailer. I guess I need to start working on it.

Scamp started production in 1971, by the end of 1972 they had produced 130 trailers. Production ramped up from there. By the early part of the next decade they had added both the 16 and the 19 to the line-up.
