Back to the original topic, I've always half expected to see Scamp
show up on Ratzenberger's travelogues. They would make an ideal subject for several reasons. They're rare, but at the same time slightly familiar. Iconic, I'd call them. Even the generic trailer icon on local road signs directing you to "Camping" looks like nothing so much as a 16-foot Egg. They're an long-running & enduring product, like Fender guitars.
Eggs are charismatic. My travel times this summer were slightly lengthened by the conversations that struck up at the gas pumps. Typically, folks say, "I remember those... do they still make 'em?" They're evidently attracting a new wave of interest due to high gas prices (remember my recent post that found questions about Scamps, Casitas, etc. making up 10 of the first 25 threads on a "trailers" forum over at a big RV site, RVnet. And I can safely predict that a major RV magazine will be printing a Scamp-camping story next year, because I wrote it.)
And I don't know the truth myself, but I suppose there's an interesting family feud story to be told about how Scamp
split into two competing companies. That ought to be enough material for ten or fifteen minutes of TV.
