Scampers

Last night it was 55d here I went to the Scamp 13f while loafing looking at my handiwork I see condensation on the cabinents. I was wondering why when I would remove a screw it was rusty.

Now I know why! I can imagine all the stuff going on between freezing and higher temps in the winter in all trailers.

I suppose its a natural thing nothing to be resolved until i put it in the garage after trouting season!

a 13f Scamp looks ridiculous!!

Condensation can build up quickly inside a trailer. Two popular solutions:
1] leave a vent or window open, or
2] close it up and keep a chemical moisture absorber like damp-rid inside the trailer.

Here in OK, I had a maxx air cover over my vent, so I just left the vent open 24/7. Folks in really humid climates may have best results with the chemical.

Most people think 13'ers look cute; the dimensions approximate the 'golden ratio.'

my scamp 13f

Mike I just sold the A-Liner Scout man I hated to see her go. So today I looked at this 13f Scamp once again I got out my measuring tape guess what I am in a 10f Scamp.

Should I sue or what? I couldn't figure out why my A-Liner was bigger there you go!

The measurement of travel trailers is from the hitch to rear bumper.

Condensation... I keep the condensation out by using Dri-Z Air. If the trailer is at home when the weather gets cold I put a small electric heater inside. Open ceiling vent and vent over the stove to get circulation.
