Hello everyone, new to the forum.
Has anyone ever removed a scamp
shell from the frame? how hard is it? and what is required?
I picked up a scamp
13' for a whopping 250 dollars!, and well, the price reflects the shape of it. The shell is actuly in good shape, the interior hard peiced are for the most part all there. Even came with some new pieces like front and rear windows
, sink and faucet. Who ever owned it before me started to strip it, so none of the interior fiberlass peices are rivited in. So I was guessing that might make the shell easier to remove.
Now a little history on it, My brothers friend in san diego purchased it for the same price he sold it to me for, when I got it home I noticed stenciled in the bumper was "U. S. MARINE COPRS" and "U.S.M.C" on the toung. Also had a "6" painted on the corners. Started to clean a bit on the inside and found a clue, found this paper on the inside
So it was a rental unit at san onofre beach in san diego. So in other words it's pretty rusty and crusty, I have a feeling I am going to be cutting a lot of fasterners off and replacing them. From what I can gather from the VIN
it's a 2001 (although it done look like it!). I think the marines ordered them as stripper models, nothing fancy on the inside, they put puddy in all the water and electrical
outlets on the outside. Not much in the way of plumbing or electrical
on the inside. I kind of wonder if it has ever been registered or on the street, I think it's lived it's life on the beach.
here is a pic of it
so back to the question, is the body just bolted to the frame? Also since Im new to the trailer thing, are the exterior outlets pretty universal for rv's (like water fill, ect). would a RV shop have them or should I order through scamp
Thanks for any help.
also, I cant belive how easily these thing tow! I towed it behind my little 4 banger worn out isuzu truck and it towed no problem, I probaly wont even notice it behind my v6 rodeo.
