Thursday night we loaded up our Xterra with all of our camping gear in anticipation of picking up our "new" 1982 Scamp
16'. My mind was at the campground while I was at work until Noon on Friday. When the Noon whistle blew I picked up the wife and headed North to Edina, MN to pick it up.
We arrived about 3:00 pm and got a complete tour of all the ins and outs of the trailer. 4:45 we were back on the road. Scamp
towed great hardly knew it was back there. About 7:30 we arrived at home, threw in the food, grabbed the kids from grandmas and headed for the campground. By this time it was pouring down rain.
I did pretty well backing in, considering this was my first time ever doing this. We spent the rest of the night under our awning
and proceded to go to bed early. It rained all night. The rest of the weekend was absolutely gorgeous. We played some golf, croquet, and swam at the local pool.
All in all we grew to love the Scamp
with every minute we camped in it. It has everything we wanted, and everything works. Awning
, 3 way fridge
, sink, stove, furnace
, air conditioner, toilet, shower, sleeps 4. It does need a good cleaning though, inside and out!
One thing we noticed with all of the rain. The interior headliner got wet in two areas. One was by the top corner of the shower wall, another was by where an overhead cupboard hooks to the ceiling. I'm guessing the best method is to get up there an silicone around the bolt points? I was looking at the roof after we got home yesterday were points where it appears the fiberglass on the roof is gone and I can see what appears to be yellow styrofoam. These spots are smaller than a pencil eraser head. Could rain be getting in here too?
Finally, we've camped for years in tents and keep all of our "stuff" in rubbermaid type totes. The scamp has a lot of storage space, yet none of the spaces are too big. I'm curious what other owners put where? What do you keep in your trailer, and where do you keep it?
Sorry for the length, just excited about finally having a fiberglass trailer. We've looked at them for a long time! We're now ready to clean ours up and make it our own.
Thanks! - Jeremy :wave
