We will be leaving in a week to go get our new Scamp. Yes we are excited! Got the truck wiring for the trailer complete. We are bringing our sleeping bags and some cooking equipment. This will be our first time using a trailer, (we have wilderness camped for years), so any hints, tips or other info that could be passed on to us would be appreciated.

Hi Sandy,
Shirley and I are also picking up our new Scamp (16 ft) on Monday, May 17th. We are excited as well! We plan to camp the first night at Lake Itasca State Park to make sure everything is working ok. We are anxious to start our camping adventures, and hope we meet along the way. Good Luck.

Sandy and Roger,

If you are getting brakes check them before you leave Backus. We drove our new Scamp several thousand miles before realizing that one of the wires wasn't connected!

While slowly driving down a side road have one guy by the wheel and listen for brake noise, go to other side and repeat.

We put our trailer up for the months we don't use it. While the wheels are off the ground one of us spins the wheel and the other applies the Prodigy. We try to get both sides to work about the same. It is at this time that we also give the bearings three squirts of grease. This time one wheel needed more than three pumps.

So, another item for you to buy if you haven't already got it is a brake tool gizmo for adjusting brakes.

Sandy, if you haven't left yet....I sent you some messages.

If any of you have a Norwegian heritage, hurrah for Syttende Mai... (17th of May). Constitution day in Norway, and a big deal in many small communities across the Midwest with a Norwegian heritage.

For me, that would be a very auspicious pickup date!

I took this at the 17th of May parade on my block last year. Store flagg og massevis av barn!
