Donna. Portland, Oregon IS far. Hahha. Thanks!
Donna, here is the secret how we got ours. We focused on the three that were for sale
. The 19' footer Scamp 40 mins from us, the 13' Scamp near NYC and the one in NJ merely an hour from the one from NYC. We planned on driving for all three in same day. YES, in person all in one day!
That we discovered really worked. We saw the 19' foot Scamp first on way South at 10 AM. It was nice but my wife slipped on the steps inside of the 5th Wheeler. She has a bruise as of yesterday (today is Tuesday). She blamed on the narrow stairs. We did not like that. It was a bit difficult for us. The price was a bit high for us. So, then we thanked the owner and left for area--30 mins drive north of NYC. Nice people, well demostration on everything, no 5th wheeler. Just the 13 foot. I wanted bathroom but we both like the newness and it really does look good so we decided to buy it right on the spot because the owner said he has many interested in the trailer. The one in 40 mins from us even said same thing. The first one that is 40 mins from us said a man from British Columbia wants to buy it and haul it back to B.C.
Since we bought our Scamp around 2-3PM same day, we decided to head back skipping the Jersey one.
We will get it this week because of DMV and rest of cash to pay off. We secured with 500 Dollars. So, now we know how to do it! That is why we prefer locally, Donna. We want to see it in person and get it right there.
The 19 Foot Scamp 5er has a bathroom but the stairs.. its like you have to squeeze in the stairs. We see it is a design flaw. That is why I designed mine much better. OOPS! Can't tell ya what I designed! Hahaha.
You will see pictures soon enough.
