Its good that the door side appears to be intact and in good shape. Good luck with the project!

On shipping, you probably will have to have Scamp crate it which probably will not be cheap.Then I would guesstimate somewhere in the 50 cents to $1 per mile.

There is a complete 13' Scamp in Charleston, SC that would make a perfect donor camper. It's been taken off the frame, rat hair removed and interior fiberglass taken out. My 85 yo father has lost interest.

Steve, I'm fairly confident I'll be okay, I'm an engineer and pretty experienced in lots of fabrication techniques. I am sure it will be a good deal or work, but I think I'll be able to manage. (If not, you can tell me you told me so!)

As for shipping the top, I'm in Utah, so at $1/mile, the shipping is almost as much as the top. Even at half that, it's pretty expensive.

02camp, South Carolina is a bit of a drive for me (~2000 miles) but that sounds like a great opportunity for someone else. How much would he want for it?

Ngrimm's work on his caved in Scamp gave me some confidence, and I think mine looks like it will be less work than his.

Wish me luck!
Well now this should / will be ......to say the least, a challenge from a man that builds circular stairs. You must be , really good at fiberglassing.....Any thing is possible , good luck.

if you want to know what the shipping cost of the upper half of a shell is just get on the phone and talk to the company. There will be an extra fee for building a shipping crate for it. Of course it has to be shipped by motor freight companies.

It would probably be quicker to drive over there and get that one, than fix the one you have. And you'd get a bunch of spare parts in the deal. It's also much more likely the curves and general finish would be better on the other one when done. If it's in nice condition, you might even avoid painting it.

I'd rather buy somethign I can go camping in as-is. at this stage of my life (mid 60s), I've already got more than enough "projects" to want to take on another.

your mileage may vary.
objects in mirror are closer than they appear.
just sayin'

For some reason, I have to laugh every time I read that.

Also remember the fire. The 13Scamp has new molds after the fire.
Be sure and ask about fit.
Maybe you could find another abandoned Scamp with a rotten floor or other damage for parts.
A couple years ago I drove 120miles to look at a 13Scamp which I turned down @ $300. It was moldy inside, had been used as a kennel, had frame damage and had been skewered by a fork truck... Still it had a good top half!
I would definitely look into the trailer that Ric mentioned , and fast!
Go get it with a utility trailer!
