I was returning from taking my son to work yesterday when lo and behold I spot a Scamp
5th wheel going the other way down the street. I speed to the next signal, whip a U turn and speed the direction the trailer was going.......past two cops going the other way
....had heart palpatations.
I see it up ahead, swooping through traffic, I get behind it as it turns left, then it ducks into a side street to make a U turn. I pass it and wave to the older male driver. I whip another U turn and folow the trailer as it turns right and pulls up to the curb at a city park. I jump out of the truck and approch him and say "I'm stalking you...I had to see if you were someone I know from the internet." Turns out I don't know him. We had a wonderful conversation about many things. His name is John and he's a full timer with his two dogs. Has traveled all over the USA and Canada, and is going to continue to do so as long as he can.
He has had some trouble with his Scamp
(he bought it new in 2002), it had leaks
around the AC and vents from the factory, and the metal that holds the axle
literally ripped apart, the welder he had repair it said it was poor quality steel. He has gone through 3 sets of tires
, which he felt was excessive and is thinking of going to 14" or 15" with higher capacity tires
It was a very nice meeting. I told him about fiberglassrv.com, I hope he can stop in sometime!
So if you see a black Ford Ranger following you.....
