Oh and i got a 300$ offer from the hitch guy with even a rental car, get it wednesday done. I send you his number tomorrow morning.
Awesome awesome awesome!!! My parents live in the mountains in Asheville. And i'm going to the mountains this weekend i'll be in the chimney rock area. I rented a big rv there for the weekend. There was a lady in the chimney rock area with a casita for sale but it wasn't in my or your price range....but i thought about you. And i've been looking for you every day. I'm so glad you found this. Exciting!!!!

Tell your hubby you already had the rug pulled out from under you once....grrrr. This was meant to be yours then...we'll think of it that way.

And yes i'd love the hitch guys number. I've got a few things to fix to my liking which will take about a month-ish...then i'm taking her camping.

I love that the man said she was dry and ready to go campin'. I can't wait to see it. I'll have to send you my number so you can text me some pics...i get excited about these things lol It's going to be interesting as you learn more about what kind it is. I hope the guy can find the paperwork. I love old paperwork...true fact. And the color...i wonder if you can get it to shine up?

If there is no sheet, it would be easier to answer the OP's question as to what it is, if they had a photo of the rear of the trailer. Besides the door handles and hinges (which currently would seem to point to it being a Scamp). There are differences between the early Scamps and Boler's in regards to tail lights and bumpers which will stand out assuming the PO hasnt made any major changes.

Chuck, doesn't the ECO have hinges like the Trillium (refrigerator hinges)?

Kim, we were just in Asheville about 2 months ago and guess who we ran into at the gas station there, ever watch Moonshiners? The guy next to us was Josh Owens! The guy with the little dog ( who was sitting in a childs seat). He is a very nice guy. Every one I told at the gas station seem to know him and said nothing but good stuff about him. I love those mountains and can not wait to go back again and again!
I thought that was kool to tell,lol.

Shawn that is neat! It's a tie between him and Tickle for my favorite on the show. Did he have his lil doggie? I think the dogs name is Cutie Pie.

Christine. Knock knock. You there? How's the progress coming along?

Kim, Yes Cutie Pie is his name and he was in the back seat in a child's car seat. I had to scratch her little head,lol. Josh has it turns out is a very nice man. He does a LOT of work for kids. I was cleaning the windshield and a lady just got out of her car and I told her who was just getting gas and she said" ole Josh, he is a good boy he cut down some trees for me in my front yard".
He has written to me since then and I think that was pretty kool!

So when are you moving back?

I'm going to go to the big big flea market this weekend. I'll keep you in mind if i see anything you could use or improvize with. What is the window size? Are they standard? Meaning....would they be the same size as mine? You never know...i might run across windows at the flea market.

My mom and i worked some last Friday for a few hours. This Friday i am spending over half of the day working on the Scamp and mom will be down from Asheville to help Saturday for most of the day. She has shown such an interest...i'm so thankful for that and for the help.

Saturdays goal is to cut new cabinet doors...and clean the exterior.

A friend of mine is working at the air base in Ramstein. I don't think she'll be coming back to the US anytime soon. She loves it there.

I hear that a lot ;-) we are going back February 2014, i don't know if we have to come back though.

Oh, the windows are 24x17 anything around that would work and i actually just need one, the other one is "rescuable" if thats a word.

Rescuable is definitely a word I'd use. Some may argue that the word would be salvageable though lol

I thought my cabinet doors were rescuable. And they are but what Donna says on here rings in my head 'do it right the first time'. 2 of mine have a slight bow to them. So should I make more? Probably. I'm going to take a second look today and decide. And they have screws sticking through them where they were rigged by the PO. But I have much larger fish to fry so that may have to wait...if so I'm going to fill the holes and paint them for now. New doors might be a good winter project. (Like how I talk to myself and change my mind lol...I'm so wishy washy sometimes)

Kim, I was thinking of replacing my doors in the egg with the shape of the camper. No sq doors but in the shape of the egg. I thought it would be neat. I am like you, winter project!

Mine are actually in really good shape, nobody ever did anything to them so they need just a new coat of paint and new nobs and should be just fine. If there one thing you can say about us Germans is that we do everything right we do ;-) i already have a double induction drop in cooktop, like you said, a litle bit luxury .... but that has to wait, i only have a fiberglass shell left, totaly gutted it and i wana do everything fom the bottom up...
