Insurance covered approximately 40 percent of the total project cost
Wow. Less than half.

Interesting isn't it. One of my friends owns a flour mill. A number of years ago it burned down. His insurance was about 10% of the rebuild cost. It took him about 5 years to recover. One of those situations where the building was old and rebuild to current code was beyond belief.

Things are looking up for the 35-year old family-run business.

"We still have a waiting list; we have about 100 trailers sold ahead right now," Eveland said, "So that's good."
It still sounds like a pretty strong market!

Pretty good to be sitting on a million dollars plus in sales! Glad to see them coming back strong. Kinda wish they'd have used this as an opportunity to update and improve the design a little bit though...

As discussed here a couple of times, the 13' model's body is now taller (for more interior height). Not a big change, but Scamp strikes me as a very conservative business, and that seems to suit many of their customers.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
