Hi, I'm quite new at this, but just retired and want to see the US. Does anyone have the 2013 price list for the Scamp? I think I would like a 16' because it might have a larger bed in it as well as a larger bathroom. Does anyone have any suggestions or have the latest Scamp price list?
Thanks from a "newbie".

Are you thinking of a new trailer?

I was considering a used Scamp (IF I could find one that isn't too old), but since there doesn't appear to be a lot of those, I thought I'd check on new ones. IF I could find a late model 16' Scamp that doesn't need any work, I would definitely consider it since I am now on a "fixed" income. However, I'm a "user" and not a "fixer", so it would have to be nothing wrong with it. Am I wishing for the moon or what?

Is this an increase or decrease? I have not followed their prices. But i do know the word sale has been used for years.

7 years ago when I bought our 13' Scamp I spent about 2 years looking for a used one. After seeing the prices of newer, ready to camp Scamp trailers, I opted for a new one. The just wasn't enough difference in price to not buy new and used was pretty hard to find.

My wife and I live in our 13' Scamp for 3+ months of the year, usually January, February, March and into April. Then 2 to 3 weeks at time a few times during the rest of the year.

My experiences and review of the Scamp. It's been just perfect for us. Maintenance is minimal, and very easy to tow. I purchased with idea of being off the grid, so many things are left out, no Air Conditioner, no hot water heater, no Microwave, no electric water pump. To keep maintenance issues at the minimal level, no bathroom either. That also leave enough room to be comfortable in the 13'. This type of living isn't for everybody, but it works great for us.

Now for pricing on the 2013 Scamp Trailers? Call Scamp Trailers at 800.346.4962. They're really nice people to talk to. They'll send you complete information about their line of trailers, including options and prices. You can literally build your dream trailer with options you choose. If there's something else you would like that's not listed, just ask, you can probably have that.

Good luck on your hunt. At 7 years, I think I could sell our trailer for close to what I paid for it. But it's not for sale.

Remember, it's not about age... it's about care and condition. An older, well maintained trailer can be just as good as a newer one. I've seen plenty of trashed "newer" trailers! So, don't automatically not check out something from yesteryear. Pay attention to the items found on the Buyers Check List no matter what year of the trailer.

What kinds of things go wrong? How can you tell a well-cared for unit from one that looks fine but will be a maintenance nightmare? Thanks!

The worst thing that happens are water leaks that rot out the floor and any wood structure, especially in and around the door. Most anything else can be fixed / upgraded by the average owner.
