YUP-- Well, tommorrow we're taking off to pick up a Compact Jr..... I just can't resist--- it's getting like my affliction for cars. (But, since we're down to 20 cars, I think, what the heck) And, the Scamp is almost completely done. I've run out of things to do on it. This is the one I looked at last July, that I was afraid didn't have a title. I stopped Monday on the way home from Tacoma and inquired again. The old wheeler-dealer finally admitted it didn't have a title, so I low-balled him, and he took my offer. So the adventure begins. Larry

Just got back with it and put it in the empty bay in the shop. Here's some photos... (even some wildlife we got with the deal...) Notice the fine patch on the screen area---- Brown tarp is one step above Blue tarp, by the way..... Larry

And some more shots... Even has a propane light, but am missing the screw-in schnozzle. Inside is pretty damp, but not soaked---it was covered with snow 2-3 weeks ago. Story that was told to me is that it has sat there for 5 years, but the old boy changed his story each I talked with him. Larry

That's a pretty impressive rear bumper. Probably outweighs the whole rest of the trailer...

Have fun fixing it up--post lots of photos!

Actually, it's quite light. It's that thin square tubing that you find on the back of stickies to hold the black water dump hose--- now why it was put on there I'll never know. Ended up pulling the fridge last nite, 'cause after I removed the vent stack, it was full of bird nest. I filled a garbage sack with nesting material, and still couldn't get at all the sticks, twigs, etc, that was crammed around the tubes and fins..... Have the cushions dripping on the floor of my shop-- gonna have to replace them.
Getting ready to head for the Court House to start the title saga now.... Larry

And the saga continues..... Just about gutted-- gonna have to paint it inside and out- has been painted with interior house flat latex--- (BTW- it was one of those pukey green ones originally). Of course all the interior window wood is rotten, have some nice mahogany to replace that with. Made a new straight axle today - eliminated the 4" drop to raise it. Larry
