Was interesting the sales material looks just like the 1980 material in my scamp folder - just different prices : )
Take a look, here is the brochure, circa 1980.... followed by it's next replacement.

Notice the change to modern windows,new logo, white wheels ,wedding cake lights, and a full sized powered roof vent. (out of tiny Acorns...)

I guess the kid grew up and left home between Scamps?! That's lots of aging in only a few years!
Where's that missing Lynx now?...Oh, well,I prefer that first TV anyway.

So SCAMP updates the brochure every 15 yrs or so. Must be getting close to time for a new one.

They have had several in the last few years, the latest came out in (I think) June of this year and is already due for modifications.
There has always been a policy of constant improvement at Scamp, as illustrated in my previous post and by the many changes in recent years.
I just thought that Scamp Aficionados would enjoy that post.

Save your Escape Brochure, to see just how often they change in 35 years. it can be fun,that is if they still have printed brochures.
You may just have to view the info on a two month old obsolete I-Phone.

Printed material is rapidly fading away anyway, but they say every virtual keystroke is stashed away in some huge database awaiting an FOIA form...printed.... in triplicate!
Both trailers will be "Classyfied" of course.
