Daniel, that was a looooong time ago, but I believe they were around $3400 (give or take) new back then. I remember thinking they were very expensive for what they were at the time. Of course, I bought a used '76 (or '77 I can't remember any more) Scamp in '80. I think I paid the then princely sum of $2500 for it used. You couldn't buy them in SoCal new or used, so I thought I got a real deal. The Perris Pacer came out about then, and it was more expensive yet.

I heard from a camper in an adjacent site that my 1979 Boler B1700 was around $8000 (Canadian) when new... which was very expensive for the time and the trailer size. The Boler 1300 - the Scamp 13' is a clone of a Boler 1300 - would have been much less, since there is a substantial difference in trailer size and equipment.

Are there prices in any of the Boler brochures in the Document Center (and there are more at BolerRV.com)? The Scamp should have been similarly priced to the B1300.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Still roughly a reasonable price for that trailer here, in fair condition.
