1990 Scamp fifth wheel/bumper pull

This 5th wheel trailer was modified to a bumper pull. The modification allows the owner to use a smaller tow vehicle to pull the camper. The present owner has towed with a Nissan Frontier. A conversion back to a pure fifth wheel could be done with minimal effort.

A big feature of the modification was the addition of a huge storage compartment below the goose neck. See photos.

A new Dometic Rooftop AC was added in 2015.

Located near Pensacola, Florida in Milton.

$8,500.00/OBO

Not a bad price for a tidy looking rig. The extra storage would be handy. I would worry a bit about the statement, " the modification allows the owner to use a smaller tow vehicle to pull the camper . . " . The trailer was designed as a fifth wheel, to be towed by a pickup. The storage area adds to the already large tongue weight . Advertising that it can be pulled by smaller vehicle may turn up the inevitable, " can I tow this with my Prius ? " Just sayin' . David in Fresno and Sonora

Trumpetguy......

Neat looking job! Would consider this as a possible step forward from my Casita 17. Please address condition of water, elec, grey/blackwater systems, age/condition of tires.

Reduced price.

Camping season is close and this unique converted fifth wheel has what you need for plenty of great adventure.

The frame has been engineered to make this a bumper pull so if you don't want to tie up your tow vehicle bed with a hitch this will give you the extra space of a fiver...plus the space under the goose neck has an incredible amount of storage.

Just $7,500 now for this terrific camper.

Call David 850-418-1524

What's the tongue weight with this 'bumper pull." I know the standard Scamp 19 has a tongue weight of 460 to over 600 lbs.

By extending the bumper pull forward the tongue weight will actually go down some, but loading up the storage compartment will negate it for sure. The placement of the AC on the highest point is functionally ideal, but it increases the height by those 10 to 12 inches. It is normally on the lower part, above the galley. Interesting modification.

condition

well the condition looks outstanding yes the mod is interesting I wonder what it would take to turn it back into a normal 5th wheel which is what I would prefer.

he certainly has a good price on it if someone has a sturdy car to use it as he has designed it. he doesn't state what his tug was?

nice rig to me

I just weighed with a Sherline scale and it is 825 without any thing in the storage unit.

I forgot to add that the $7500.00 price includes a weight distribution hitch, complete with the head unit.
