Trailer: 1999 Scamp 16 ft
Posts: 130
Just a couple of other thoughts...

(1) We purchased our Scamp because of the light weight. I did NOT want to purchase another tow vehicle in addition to an RV.

(2) The fiberglass RV's maintain their value extremely well (most likely since they maintain structural integrity very well). The "stick" RV's we looked at with any age on them were rotted and leaking.

(3) The fiberglass RV's are worth restoring while dating from the '80's and look wonderful when completed... stick RV's this old are most generally rotted junk.

I am a little late getting in on this post. Have read the posts and all are good ones. I have always bought used travel trailers and before the Scamp 16ft., I had a stick built and alum. clad. camper. A tornado or a bunch of them came through west TN. in 2003 and I got a lot of hail damage on everything I owned, which totalled out my alum. camper. I had been surfing the web and liked what I saw about Scamps and Casitas. Not a lot of them in my city near Memphis, but low and behold, I was driving by a house and saw a white camper, typical of some campers at RV parks, I walked up and asked, " Is that a Scamp?" (the sides were not visible) After we chatted and the owner said, it is not for sale, he looked at me and thought he wanted a new boat, so for $1,500.00 I got a nice Scamp, no major frills, has crank out windows, frig, 3 burner cooktop. I use the biggest potty Thedford makes and plan to install a small window air unit in lower part of the closet some day. I got a used one, have used it, love it, and I would suggest you look for something used, get your best deal and if you like, well, use it, if you then want a new one, sell that one, will not be too hard for I have had 4 offers since 2003 when someone drives by the house. Good luck Doug
