13' or 16' I sold a 77 trillium for 5k and I was only asking 4k, it became a bidding war.

Sorry...it's a 13'. No bath, furnace, linoleum, screen door fantatic fan, stove, gravel guard, etc....

He's basing the price on a similar one that sold in Maine....dare I say Scamps are probably a little more common in MN....

Perhaps I am reading this wrong but with none of the items you mention I dont think its worth it..... strange it doesnt even have a stove... sounds pretty bare bones.

I read it as having no bath, but having all the other items mentioned. Guess Cricket will have to clear it up for us.

I read it the same way. In his first post he said "most of the fixins!".

I would say that's about as low as one could expect for a 2005 13', depending on condition.

Yes I saw that first post as well re all the fixin's but then I read the later one which made me question it. ....

If it does have everything but the bath and as you say in good shape the asking price is not out of line IMO.

Don't tell the seller, but I think it's around $1500 - $2000 low. Assuming great condition.

Sorry...it was no bath...yes to everything else. Maybe it isn't such a bad price. When I went to look at an 08 for $6600 several people said it was too high....I guess I thought with 3 years in difference it would be worth a little less as well. New ones are $8600 right now ( I called two weeks ago).

Traveling to find a good trailer

I just bought a Scamp 5th wheel, and traveled 2,100 mile, driving three days, to buy it. It was in very good condition and at a reasonable price. Now that my wife and I have used it for the past couple of weeks, we a very happy. Yes we have found a couple of things that needed attention, but on the whole, it is great. We looked for a year for the right deal, not so much at where it was, but the best trailer at a reasonable price. . We are also very luck to have worked with very nice sellers. We had a wonderful day working throught all the details of the transaction.

We have camped in some pretty cold weather (29degs) and are taking it easy as we travel, and enjoying the trip.

I just purchased a 2005 Scamp 16' Deluxe, with the front bath, side dinette, roof air, electric brakes, dual propane tanks, larger fridge, solar panel, upgraded axle and 14" tires for $7,200.

It had been in storage for six months, and needs some clean up on the inside, but I was happy to get it for that price.

I think $6250 for a 13' without a bath is a little high.

If you think it's a bit high, offer the seller less. Maybe you can settle in the middle?

If you have the money and like it, buy it. Then you can spend your time enjoying, not looking. With this weather, you could be camping.

I didn't see a link, but that price is a lot less than we sold our 2004 Scamp w/bath for a few months ago.

Best bet: Determine how much you want to pay and make lots of offers. The later in the year, the lower the price. And prices paid in Maine or CA in June don't count.

Rule of Thumb about price opinions: Those that want to buy always think that asking prices are too high, those that are even thinking about selling think that asking prices are OK or even too low. That's Life...
