It's a Love Bug, check out the eyebrow over the front window

Scamp used those windows for part of 1976. Sorry, but I don't see the "eyebrow" over the front window. it would be a raised area in the fiberglass over the front window and tapered down both sides.

Humm, maybe it's just the white shadow over the top of the gravel guard I'm seeing....

my pics were not very good but there is no raised area around window i should have taken one without gravel guard on.the front window opens up too but it was calked closed because it leaked i supose. the roof vent leaks a little but its to small and needs a fan put in any way

Unfortunately the photo of the rear of the trailer is a little hard to see - but there appears to be some discolouration on the photo around the rear lights -making me wonder if the aread the lights are sitting is raised a little bit? or the rear lights may have been changed out. May just be the photo though.

If I am not mistaken Scamp in that time frame used rectangular lights (not unlike what is on it) did they not? and not the round wedding cake type they used on later years. The lights where flush to the trailer - fiberglass wasnt raised or recessed where the lights where attached.

Robert when you say patched the holes are referring to just that - only screw holes filled in? are was the fiberglass raised or lowered in the area of the lights?

no there is a sheet metal square patch over were the lights were and the lights are mounted over the patch area. cant say what was there before can you still get rubber gasgets for around the door?? foam was used before that dident work sorry to be such a pain but i see this camper as a jewel in the ruff. and if i can stop the mold inside it will be much better.

If you take the lights off and look under the sheet metal that may tell you the story as to whether or not you have a Scamp or a Love Bug. If its just hiding the holes from a bit larger light that sat flush then perhaps it really is a Scamp as registered.

The foam stuff around the door is a pain! Replaced mine a number of times until I gave up using it. Scamp sells a D shaped stick on rubber gasket that they dont show on their online store that you need to call the 1-800 and ask for it (Thank Floyd for that big tip!). It works much better and looks better as well. You can buy the same stuff from an Auto parts place but the packages it comes in are usually not long enough to go around the whole door so you need to by two packages. The stuff from Scamp comes long enough to go around the door in one long run and then some so cheaper than buying two packages and wasting a bunch.
