Well Hello there! I also, am new to the fiberglass campers. I have only seen one or two in the past years- just enough to pique my interest "WHERE do people GET those little things"? Because I have never ever seen one on any RV lots, anywhere. Only in passing people's yards.
So when husband and I thought of finally going camping all on our own now that our children are all grown, we didn't really want the pop-up anymore. Husband is to the point where he wants "easy". Not even anymore set-up of the pop up. I agreed. Husband thought of a little motorhome, but I totally balked at the thought since we are also on a limited budget, and it meant OLD OLD motorhomes. All I though of was how the men have to DINK and tinker with ALL of our old toys like their snowmobiles, their boats and our lawn tractor. I said NO WAY do I want some other old junky thing you are always having to fix- not to mention us being broke down a thousand miles from home.
At least our cars are always never junkers- I wanted a little just for two camper to use with our Saturns.
I found out about Scamps and I bought our 1978 13footer Scamp
on Ebay. For 2,000.00. It's in pretty good shape, honestly. Just have to deal with re-sealing all the windows
and such- it IS old, and it seems all the seals are quite dried out. But we are dealing with it all and I am having SO much fun re-decorating it. The new cushion covers will be the last thing to do, since it will take a little hunting to find just "the" right design of fabric for my theme at a discount price!
In MY opinion-a 13 foot "egg" is only for two people- even tho they say for 4. With the little bunk bed set up at one end. My husband and I couldn't ever really sleep well together on the little bigger bed part of our Scamp!!!!!!! And it's not that we are "fat" or larger persons (however my husband is 6'1")- I just like to move and thrash about all night- holy cow those beds are small. We plan on switching back and forth when we camp- one night he gets the bigger spot and I get the "sofa" and vice versa.
I couldn't ever say our camper is for more than us two.
So- I can say watch Ebay too. Not long ago there was a total wreck of a fiberglass camper for sale
on there, as you describe you wanted. I cannot remember what the guy got for it- now I wish I had bookmarked that auction for curiousity.
We plan on towing our 13ft Scamp
with a six cylinder Saturn Vue. Gosh- the thing is light
. Just yesterday- my husband MOVED the camper by hand all by himself from the driveway into the garage. He was delighted at how light
the thing is.
You can also watch RVtrader online- never know what will show up on there. But my guess is most folks sell their campers with a sign in the window along the road.
