Yesterday as we were driving south on I94 near Alexandria, MN, I noticed a smallish unusual looking motor home in the northbound lane. As it passed, I saw Scamp on the side. Did Scamp make motor homes? I'd love to see pictures (exterior and interior).

There are a few Scamp motorhomes out there. I think they are on a Ford chassis. There were only a few made in the early 80s I believe.

We saw one on eBay not too long ago. All the pics and stuff were lost in the hack.

IIRC, they were early to mid-80s and built on the Ranger chassis...

Trust me Gina, I have my own share of regrets...the Buy It Now was $4995 But, if I remember right it was someplace closer to the East Coast than what I wanted to drive to pick it up.

Sigh, maybe next time

Good for you (us!) Donna for keeping the pictures! It looks to have a full bath across the back. That box would look really nice mounted on a newer truck!

Yep, that's the same type of unit I saw. Pretty cute little setup.

I saw one of these for sale recently. It looked good, wish I had posted the information about it...

It may be that I'm back in that area in the next few weeks, I guess I'd better do it next time!

A couple showed up at the Scamp Camp in Baraboo, WI with a Ford mounted motorhome. Someone at the Scamp camp had pictures of the motorhome mounted on a Chevy chassis also. they only made a couple of dozen of them and they are very rare. I wish that I had seen one for $4995, I would have snatched it up instantly. A friend of mine said that it would be moved to a more modern chassis without problem.

I am also looking for a 13' Scamp or something similar that is in need of a new frame. My plan is to copy a toy hauler that I saw a couple of months ago. It was a factory built unit with the camper mounted on a long frame, room for "stuff ahead of the camper. The guy that owned it said it worked great for hauling 4 wheelers, or motorcycles. Some poeple may want to linch me for desicrating an egg. Just an idea.

Once upon a time I thought about taking my Scamp off of the frame and the back off of my Pontiac Trans Sport van and combining them to make a motorhome.....See sample of morphed picture!!!

Naturally this is way beyond my ability and everryone thought I was nuts, but had the van not finally given out at a mere 240,000 miles I might have tried it!!! Come to think of it, I do still have the van so if I find another wrecked Scamp for not much money maybe I will try it afterall !!
