My Scamp has 24 through holes (rivets) just for curtain rods. THAT is ridiculous. AND, then there's four more holes (rivets) to hang the stinky slinky tube on the front of the trailer. Like THAT THING is attractive... NOT!

If I was ordering a new Scamp, I'd tell the manufacturer to NOT mount curtain rods or the stinky slinky tube and that would eliminate 28 holes.

GAD.

Donna, I'm confused. I thought you owned an Escape? I've only been around for a year...didn't know you had two babies!

Pop rivets "superior"???? Don't THINK so. Why does my closet now have bolts and locknuts to fasten it to the roof of my Scamp? Because the rivets loosened allowing a LEAK to start inside my closet.

Rivets "superior" to hold CURTAIN RODS?? Now that's just plain funny!

I'm with Donna D on that one!

Wendy Lee, I've owned a 1988 16' Scamp Deluxe for 12 years. I just got the Escape 5.0TA last month. I'm trying to convince myself it's okay to be a hoarder

Ha ha! That's funny! If I owned a 16 deluxe I'd have a hard time parting with it too. Plus...the memories.

I had a heck of a time saying goodbye to my pop up last summer. Great family now owns it, and tears rolled down my cheeks as they pulled out of my driveway. I'm such a soppy ole girl...

Btw...what does GAD mean?

I wouldn't presume to ask you to think so!
I guess you should have bought a deluxe!

It's just slang. For the most part means "pathetic."

I agree with this.. I can easily see in my trailer how leaking front and rear windows (the seals were cracked, basically letting water pour inside when it rained) led to the damage to my OSB floors. The resin coated side of my flooring is more intact that the top surface inside the trailer.

I'm getting ready to start removing mine... should be a "fun" process that I feel could have been completely avoided had the window seals been replaced at the first sign of a problem... and not ignored by at least one set of previous owners.

Omg..how one removes a floor from a trailer. My hats off to you my friend. I think I'd rather drink first, then maybe give it a whirl.

God bless ye!

Yes indeed. Sometimes a little libation gives one the gumption to navigate unchartered waters.

Hiccup.

E GAD is an archaic mild oath used as a substitute for saying OMG!

E Gad. I lived in England for 3 years in the late 80's and that expression was still heard by my ears from time to time, along with a lot of Cockney rhyming slang!
