First Trip

Well Sunday Mon and Tues will be my first camping trip of the year in my new2me Scamp, heading to the Allegheny National Forest North maybe 20 miles from Cooks forest. Will be boondockin, just had a double battery carrier welded on the tongue, still need to replace the rear water fill cap, man they don't give you any room to work, and everything is glued.....arrrgghhhh. Everything else is packed, this first trip I will be alone, so just me the fire and Jack&Coke. Will post some pics when I get back.

We have our first trip planned for April 28th at Badin Lake Campground in central North Carolina's Uwharrie National Forest. We will be boondocking as well. My wife works only weekends now; so finding a camping spot Monday-Friday is real easy.

Well the first trip didn't go as planned, I posted in another thread of my DC problem. The worst was the heavy rain strong winds and then snow, temps in the 20's. No fire, no sitting in the easy chair, no awning, but still I had fun.

I just went to see if my yard machines would start.

Had enough time to mow a half acre before it got dark.

So, I guess that means my machines started...........LOL

No freezing temps for at least the next week.......

Love the snowy lane shot.

If you like that snowy lane, you would love Calgary. We just got another 4" of the fluffy stuff.

Great Pics of your first trip! Sorry you didn't get great weather but its coming! 61 and sunny here today - got the truck and trailer washed!

Re replacing the rear fill cap - I promise you the easiest way to do it is to just remove the rear bench. It only has about 4 screws holding it in place and is way faster to take and out and put back in that trying to fit your head and hands down through the hatch!

ok

I'll check out the rear bench, but mine is wood and I think there is more than 4 screws holding it in place.

That's a beautiful part of the country. Love Tidioute and Tionesta area. A lot of trees and deer! One of these days I'm gonna get back there. Good luck with your new Scamp.

Really I haven't seen an all wood one - have seen the deluxe ones with the fiberglass bench with a wood trim on the edges and one wood panel secured with a few screws with caps over them on the short end that faces the front of the trailer and it is attached to the lower kitchen cabinet. Suspect if you take the wood face off you may find that inside the bench there are a only few screws on the floor level near the front of the bench (where your feet go) and then a few more on the upper rear section on the outside wall of the trailer (there is a lip there that they go into). Would be surprised if Scamp was to deviate from their original layout/installation to much to accommodate the wood trim. They are not known for making to many big changes over the years in how they do things

I'm thinking someone replaced the rear benches, their made out of 1/2 osb, painted dark brown, the front has the rat fur on them and someone did a good job. So I won't be taking them out, just have to stuff my big head in and do the best I can.
