Scamp 16 ft standard parked but hooked to a white van in northeast Minneapolis. Rooftop air conditioner, probably from 2000+.


I was headed to Waite Park for some softball and didn't get a chance to go back for a picture.

Just came back from Englishman River Provincial Campground yesterday. To the left of our campsite we could see a 13' Boler and a couple of sites to the right was a Beachcomber B15, of which the restoration was chronicled on this site. We were there in our Ventura for a spontaneous getaway for a couple of nights.

That seems to be the way it is on Vancouver Island - vintage fiberglass is nearly omnipresent in the provincial parks here.

Spent some time walking around the AirVenture campground today in Oshkosh, WI and took some pictures. I have been loving seeing all the fiberglass campers and visiting with some of TV owners none of which are members here but I did my best to persuade them to check us out and join.

This 82 Scamp above has sat in this same spot since 1988. The owner is one of the organizers for the Oshkosh Airshow.

The owner of the above Compact Jr. was one of the most interesting owners I have met yet. This is one of three Compacts that he owns and he bought his very first one when it was only a year or two old an was hooked ever since. We had a great time touring his great little Compact an this is my first real life sighting of one so that was pretty exciting.

The two pictures above I would love to hear from someone about. What is it? I have never seen one like it before, the back of it almost looked like it opened up like a toy hauler. No owners around to talk to.

Talked in length with the owner of this little camper and I ha to ask him "what is it?" Come to find out its a 1982 or 84 Scamp that was I. Very rough shape when he found it. He redid it all on his own and it was beautiful work. It hails from Des Moines, Iowa and the owner had some really amazing things going on in the interior. He gave me a your but I didn't want to be to snoopy and ask to take pictures as well. I told him his ideas and skills would be an asset to the site but not sure I was successful in talking him into joining. He said he wasn't a big fan of computers.

This is an Argosy. I though I had heard talk of these on the site but wasn't positive if it was a true fiberglass camper or not. Still beautiful in my opinion but no owners around to chat with.

(It appears my comments did not align properly with my photos, hopefully it doesn't create to much confusion. Sorry.)

Argosy is an aluminum camper made by airstream.

Boler spotted

I saw a 13' tan/white Boler at the Battle of Big Horn parking lot in Montana on July 26th, 2013. I didn't have my trailer with me but hope to next time around!

Met a 5ver going north on Hwy 52 between Harmony and Preston, MN. I didn't recognize it at first because it had, I assume, the owners last name on the front where the Scamp decal goes. If I put my last name on ours across the front big enough to read I would have to put the the first half over the last half but then maybe people could pronounce it.
