Nick, here's some stuff I have on North Dakota Camping Sites *** Some neat things in the Bismarck and Mandan Area ND Also *** T. Roosevelt North

If you will be using I-84 and/or I-86 near Pocatello, Idaho, Massacre Rocks State Park is A Nice Place 10 mi. W. of American Falls, Idaho. A neat campg'nd overlooking the Snake River in Southeastern Idaho (landscape reminds me of New Mexico & AZ). I-86, Exit 28. We camped there a few days in a MH some years ago. Later, I helped a friend drive a moving van from Las Cruces to Vancover, WA. We drove I-84, West of Pocatello to Portland, following the Oregan Trail somewhat all the way on an Interstate. Many, many places to see and camp, a neat drive. I would like to do a slow RV trip along it someday. Google: Oregon Trail National Historic Trail *** Emigrant Springs *** Deschutes River * You Might find more places to see.

Nick, glad you decided what you want. I'm still almost decided but not sure. Mine depends on how soon and how the finances are going when the time comes. Around three years ago, I noticed one while headed east on I-30. So I hit the next exit and circled around to look at it. At that time, I wasn't even looking, but I made several photos and got some good ideas for the future. They sold it for $5000.

Take photos and enjoy the ride!!

Don

Good for you. I saw the inside of a Scamp for the first time last summer. Very nice. Which floor plan did you get? Raz

Thank you for the info. Looks useful and it has been saved for my trip.

Well part of my decision was do it now or forget it. So I did it. I like the Scamp 5er first time I saw it and then I actually went to look at a real one and definitely liked it. So this one was available for immediate delivery and was configured the way I wanted. I wasn't necessarily looking for a deluxe but the deluxe do look nice. So that's what I've got. Now I just have to wait until my pickup date (set by me of course).

Good luck as you continue your quest. One day the time will be right.

Nick

Hi Raz, I got the 19ft deluxe with a front bath. Saw one of those last year in real life and it looks pretty good. I'll have my own hitched to the back before long.

Scamp shows a layout A and a layout B? The ends look the same with the kitchen components rearranged. Also oak or birch?

If Scamp doesn't provide the white water hose you may want to get one in advance and run water through it. The one we purchased had a very strong plastic smell/taste at first. would hate that smell to go into your new tank.

You should also put on your to buy list a water pressure thingy if you haven't already got it on your list. You don't want a flooded trailer due to too much pressure.

And an electric outlet adapter, but I don't know what that is since with our set up I have never needed one. That can wait til you see what you need. Just wanted to give you a heads up on that stinky hose.

I also like to have on hand the WalMart atlas. Maybe your GPS has all WalMarts within distance marked. We have found it necessary to overnight at WalMart a couple of times. I like to use colored pens for each time I cross the county. Helps me remember which roads we have already taken and I mark on the map notes about campgrounds on that route.

Let me know if you are not going directly to Backus.

Nick, Maybe these will be of help finding overnights & places to dump:
Boondocking Sites

Bob's Cheap or Free CG's US

FreeCampsites USA

*:* Free or Almost Free Campgrounds for RVs

National Forest Dispersed Camping .... Ditto

More on Boondocking

COE Campgrounds and BLM Camping

Always good for Wal-Marts - Allows or Not Overnighting.

Places which Might Allow Overnighting

Extra Water & Transferring Water

A Water Thief can make finding water a lot easier. Got one from Wally World.

RV Dumps Sites

Dump Stations



At Cody, WY Wal-Mart 2009


At Trinidad, CO Wal-Mart


At Wheatland, WY city park, has camping; found on above *:* site.

When we were in a C-Class MH, we had often used Rest Areas. With them or any place:
Just be Viligant, some are better than others, if spooky, don't, if not stay. Welcome centers have been nice to stay in.

Consider your surroundings carefully and if you feel uncomfortable with the area, move somewhere else. I feel comfortable when there are one or two (more so if more) RVs are overnighting at a location.

Many stay at Truck Stops, I hear Flying J's mentioned a lot, also Cracker Barrels. I have not.

I have read many accounts of people staying at casinos and at Cabela's. I have not, but would. CasinoCamping

New Mexico State Parks are a great bargain. Fees from $8 to $10 per Night without an entry fee when camping.

Keep in mind the possibility of snow (even heavy snow) at high elevations in April. Those mountain passes can be dicey. Even as far south as I-70 the passes in April can get interesting. Allow extra days in case a front moves in and makes an area hazardous.

Another option in SW North Dakota is Bowman-Haley Rec Area, on a lake of the same name. If you don't need electric hookup the camping is free, and there's a water spigot and dump station available, no charge. Electric sites, I forget but I think they were $20 or less.

Congratulation Nik,

What were your key factors to get Scamp 19, besides falling in love with it. I think you were also looking at Lil Snooze and others.

Happy and safe travel.

George.
