Thought we should all be on the look out. Perhaps we Need a "EGG ALERT" Section.

Did they make Casitas in Backus? Maybe Scamp made them at one time.

Also, interesting that they are posting about a trailer stolen a year-and-a-half ago (I thought it sounded familiar; must have read it then). Although maybe that's just in case people see it out camping this year. Just caught my attention.

It certainly doesn't hurt to bring this to the memberships attention again. We've talked about this before:

Looking for Stolen Egg - October 5, 2008
Stolen - Please Read - August 31, 2008
Stolen Casita - May 18, 2008
Stolen 1981 13' Casita - February 14, 2008

Sure would like to see the owners get their trailer back!

Hi Alf,

So you're saying that some of the early Casitas were made by Scamp in Minnesota? That's what I was wondering.

Yes that was back in 1981 and before they made Scamps and Casita's they made the boler American. And somewhere in the early years they made trailers under the Acorn name because of legal issues over the Scamp name.

Some details can be found in the Egg History - Boler Descendants thread

Looking at the Vin # 82CA183 one might think it was a 1982 model Casita # 183 off the line.

Yes, I thought the date seemed a bit off, but I figured if someone ever stoled my Burro, putting up a notice on here right away might just save it as:

Who more than the good people on this site notice an egg in a campground, driveway, in the weeds or driving down the road.

How many of the good people on this site scour the ebay, craigslist, want ads, car shoppers for thier first or another egg.

Who cares as much as the owners of eggs when one of our little eggs goes adrift.

This would be the first place I would alert......After the police.

Yes, and when we picked up new last September, we talked to Scamp about that little bit of history... when Casita FIRST split off from Scamp, they actually were located on an adjacent parcel - immediately south of the Scamp site, before heading to Texas.

And Casita complely disavows any past affiliation with Scamp. This is from their FAQs
"Is Casita a spin-off of Scamp?
That is a very a popular misconception as we've never been associated with Scamp."

Thanks for the info, everyone.

Donna: Huh, that seems odd. I should think there would be nothing negative about an association with Scamp - they seem to be a very good trailer, at a good price point. And you only have to take one look to know it's a Boler clone, roots-wise.

That said, I've never run a business, so hats off to those who do.
