Hi you'll, Everyone is so great on this site. I live in Jacksonville, FL and am looking at a Scamp in Janesville, WI anyone in that area can take a look at it with the buyes check list from this site and give me a report. Long way to drive, if it is not what it looks to be.

Thanks

Jim

Yes, I talked to the Lady, she is a little flakey. can't seem to get a lot of info from her.

The questions is why I started the thread below about buy used Scamps.

If they won't send more photos or answer all your questions.
I would STAY AWAY FROM BUYING FROM THEM.
There will be more trailers for sale.

It does look nice, doesn't it? I can see why you are interested. Maybe you could contact an RV dealer in the area and pay somebody there a few bucks to look at it for you. My experience is that it can be real disappointing sometimes when you get to actually see the trailer. However we just made the decision that it is worth a drive if you know it's nice. But I wouldn't do it without a 3rd party looking at it first.

Her ad doesn't even say what year the trailer was manufactured.

Kevin basicaly same thing and year. I have asked the owner of other. But 1500 dollars cheaper and a little closer to me. That is why I was asking for help in area. Now, itf something like that was down south, where I would have to spend so much on gas, that would pull me that way.

Thank you very much for you time. I am really gald your trying to help.

Kevin,

I have been looking for awhile. I have been using a rv search engine at :http://www.jaxed.com/cgi-bin/mash.cg...&ye=&submit=go
taht brings up most of the scamp on craigslist. & e-bay and Have also been doing Google search. there is another one:http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/rvs/696203739.html

That is again a little further away, and cost more money. This one I think is closer to you. She sent me 4 pictures, but I can't figure out floor plan. Don't see large bed in back. Side bathroom. attached is two interior pictures.

Jim

Well, that's certainly an interesting layout. Don't think we've ever seen on like that before. Since it's a Deluxe, it's obviously custom built to the original buyer.
