Trailer: 82 Scamp 13 ft
Posts: 61
In an often cold, fragmented world of strangers, Dan and Dawn of Minneapolis have made things friendlier for us. Two weeks ago a friend told us about small fiberglass traliers (after he found us camping in the back of our Subaru on a state forest road). A week ago we decided to buy one and found this site. We quickly discovered two things: these trailers for sale disappear almost as quickly as they appear, and when they do appear, they're often thousands of miles away. So I asked you folks if people ever did paid consultancy (visitng rv's). Dan responded, and offered to visit a 13' Scamp we'd heard of in Minneapolis. We live in the Shenanadoah Valley of Virginia. He and Dawn not only visited the trailer, they went over it with a fine-tooth comb, wrote us a DETAILED description AND sent over 20 digital photos. And they wouldn't accept a fee.

We called the sellers that night and bought it. We emailed Dan and Dawn to thank them, but we thought it would embarrass them by posting this to say: You guys are the best and if you represent the culture of these little trailers, we want to be a part.

Heartfelt thanks to you, Dan and Dawn, and to this site,

Ann and Bruce Johnson

Congratulations on your new trailer. That was great of Dan and Dawn to go check it out for you.

I think you'll find most fiberglass folks pretty outgoing and friendly!

I'll echo that most of the folks you'll meet here are helpful and friendly. A few are exceptionally eccentric. But that only sweetens the package.

Ann and Bruce,
We've conversed with quite a few via this site, and met a number of others at rallies, and found a wonderful group of friends. Welcome, and we feel you'll enjoy their company as much as us.
Kurt & Ann K.

Hi Ann & Bruce and Congratulations! We're neighbors to your southeast (northeastern NC) and found our Scamp in upper Michigan. Left here early on a Friday, closed the deal around lunch on Saturday and were back home before for dinner on Sunday. Can't say I remember too much about the trip though.

Hope to see you folks on the road sometime. We'll be somewhere in the Blue Ridge Mtns the first week in July but probably won't get as far north as you are. If you ever plan a trip to the NC Outer Banks, give us a holler.

Al & Cindy
