Wasn't much left in our 85 Scamp, 7 years parked, the spare was rotten and lots of water infiltration, pretty well trashed everything including all of the floors Scamp photos (sorry about the geocities site if it is over the limit, have to get my own server up and running one day). Was suppose to include the awning, I only glanced and saw a long object so I thought that was it, turned out to be part of a sailboat from our post sale email exchange. I was more worried about plates, papers and our long trip home across an international border then the awning when we picked it up. Almost have the floors done, going camping for our second time in a couple of weeks, will work on the closet and kitchenette this winter, home reno taking up too much time right now. Will have to get some updated photos of the interior with the new flooring in, not a great job but looks nice (I think) and works for us.

Wow, Shawn, when you are done with your Scamp, I want to see the pics!

We picked up our '85 13 foot Scamp last week, and it had: cat poo, rat poo/pee, mouse poo/pee, black widow spider, tons of weird desert beetles, sand/dirt/dust, astronomy nametag belonging to the former owner, the former owner's registration slips, some astronomy magazines, a wool blanket, two bottle jacks, a cool mounted TV holder, a 12 v auto fan wired into the 12 v system, what appears to be (?) a drinking water spout with water purifier, a mag light, matches, spices, a can of febreeze (someone was probably trying to cover the pee smell..yech), tupperware container, dog dish, some dog food, and a t-shirt.

Cool thing was that we were able to look the previous owner up online (the trailer was purchased from him by a woman who buys and sells vintage RV's for profit- we bought from her), and found some pics and a little bit about him. Neat guy in his 80's.

Good One, Ron! I totally agree, Priceless!

The former owners had left wheel chocks, the awning (yay!), the rear support jacks, and some crud that I don't recall other than I threw it away.

When I gave my pop up to a buddy, I outfitted it with linens, pots and pans, dishes, soaps, just about everything he's going to need to camp the first night. You know, now that I think about it, I think I left a few canned goods for him, too! Oh dear, if this froze and split open, he may have a mess when he opens his camper!

I suppose he'll be at the pop up camper telling everyone what a "great friend" he has!

What a fun thread, Ronnie!

Zilch! Zippo! Nada!
Steamed cleaned and newly painted from a dealer. That was twelve years ago and looks like it could use a repaint. Think we'll keep it for another twelve.

At first I thought - nothing. but then the brain "finally" kicked in.
1 coffee pot with no insides or lid - aluminum.
1 small sauce pot - again, no lid and aluminum.
4 stablizers
2 mirrors for the tow vehicle. kind that attaches to the fender - very nice. afraid to try them on the Mag. they might scratch her.
OH!! 1 bug in the fresh water line from the tank. - uck.

My Surfside came with junk, mold and mildew. The lady took out the bar-b-que lighter, but left the rusty spoons. The guy selling it was going to leave the kids picnic table, but his wife took it. It was quite amusing. My kids thought that the remaining stuff was just wonderful (broken hammer, stakes, broken jacks, rope, etc). Nothing too cool.
(Quit slagging our pennies! They make great washers, and are cheaper then getting them at the hardware store!)

Trailer: Burro 13 ft 1982
Posts: 168
Well since our little Burro was a wedding present from my dad, it had a few things like pots, pans, dishes, rug, step stool, bedding and that kind of stuff. But the best thing was a little plaque my dad made and hung between the cupboard doors above the stove that reads " Berry -n- Ellen
Buzzards Nest
which I just love (our last name is Buzzard).

When my dad sold his Lovebug to some people that drove all the way from Texas to California to pick it up, after seeing pictures I had posted on this forum. My dad left a lot of things in the LoveBug so the couple could camp in it all the way back home in comfort. The couple that bought it had never towed before and was a little nervous, so my dad hooked up to his lil Bigfoot and traveled with them to a campground about an hour away and camped with them that first night. He helped them back it in to the camp site, showed them how to light and operate everything and they spent 1/2 the night talking about trailers, towing, tips and camping. I thought that was a really neat thing to do.

We found a porta potty and a resume. The resume was interesting because the original owner bought the trailer as a kit and completed it himself. His resume consisted of "handyman" type work and was mostly self employed. It was "vewy interwesting." I have saved it with all the other important documents on the trailer.
