Already done Donna, thanks for the heads up though.

No it doesn't happen on all Scamps. I am vexed by the same problem. The primary cause is placing the holdback too far from the hinge opening. I intend to make a new (longer) holdout which will solve the problem, since moving the holdout would leave unsightly scars.

The only fault I have with mine is it's mild steel. If I was going to buy a new one, I'd get stainless: RV Designer E226 T' Entry Door Holder - 6" - Stainless Steel
