Thanks for the comments,
YES, brand spanking new trailer factory fresh, out the door for $8751.
That is the basic 13' Scamp
Furnace,
Battery pack,
Rock Guard,
Vinyl floor.

That is all we need, we boondock a lot.
Graduating from an old worn out 1982 coleman popup tent camper.

Stopped at the scales, weight = 1180 lbs

Joe,

Congratulations on your new Scamp!

And thank you for the photos, and for the weight information - that is very good to know.

I don't mean to ask the obvious, but was that weight with the trailer on your tow vehicle (i.e. minus tongue weight), or was it for the trailer alone, unhitched (total weight).

She sure is shiny! Nice match for your tow, too.

Raya

Thank You,
The weight was total weight, trailer unhitched

Took the new scamp out for its 'shakedown cruise'.
Everything vent very well.
The first night was cold, light rain/snow mix, the heater kept it very comfortable.
It seemed as though the heater did not have to run very much.
The second day/night was cold and clear, we saw many stars that night from the comfort of our scamp.

We were boondocking in Wyoming, most of our camping in the future will be in Yellowstone, and Glacier.

There will be some trips to the Pacific Northwest, Portland, Seattle, and Bellingham.
Now I have to learn where the best campgrounds are near the above cities.

The "sign" in the photo is a real eye-catcher.

Thanks for posting those.
I have a chance to pick up a 1985 16' Casita that is completely gutted right down to the glass and I was wondering exactly how I would go about recarpeting it. It may turn out to be to much work to to fool with for the money. (not sure) but now I know what I'm up against.

Joe,
Thanks for posting the weight. I'm still using a Pop-up and I've decided on a fiberglass camper in the future and just need to decide which one. I've run full circle the last 2 years since there are so many choices, ranging from deciding the Scamp 19 was the one for me, then maybe a 16/17 Casita, then perhaps a 13 Scamp, Casita, or Trillium. I'm even considering the Eggcamper, but I really think I'll end up choosing a 13 ft model since I can pull it with My Subaru and won't need to keep my big truck.
I'll probably get one similar to yours, except perhaps an A/C rather than furnace since most of my camping will be in the South.
Do all the cabinets shown on the Scamp 13 ft website come with the Scamp or are they optional?
Good luck with your new camper, looks nice!

John H

John,
We graduated from a worn out 1982 Coleman popup, we thought the Scamp 13 basic, would be the best fit since we boon-dock a lot.
The only overhead cabinets in the basic model are the ones above the stove/sink are. The overhead front and rear cabinets are optional.
The closet by the door is standard.
We camp in the North West, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington and wanted the furnace to take the morning chill off.
If we camped in the south an air conditioner may have been our choice.
It took two months from the time we ordered the scamp until it was in our hands, we went to the factory in Backus, MN to pick it up.

Hi Joe,

We have the Scamp before the new height, basic, not even a furnace. We do have front and back overhead cabinets. Carry no water.

We weighed in at the Oregon Gathering at 1600 and at another time (town dump) at 1500.

If you ever get a chance to weigh again with your gear please post again. Wondering if the weigh scale you used was for big rigs and could be off a bit for a small unit? I am really surprised your unit was that light.

My two extra cabinets and gear weigh 600? Oh yeah, we got a group 27 battery so that was a few pounds extra too. I assume since you have a furnace you have a 20 lb propane tank.

Lesson to be learned is that the weight can be kept down.

Thanks for posting, Nancy
