Wanted 13' Scamp

I have fine memories of many nights spent in a mid 80s 13' Scamp. I would love to relive those times with one of my own. I would be happy with a basic model. I would prefer one with no awning, and no A/C. (I don't know of many 30amp services in the woods) I would like one with a working gas heater and fridge. I didn't have a toilet in the one I remember, but I don't remember spending any time on the front bench...and I can see the appeal of the added convenience. I've been looking on many sites and have seen a lot of acceptable ones that are just too far away or are snatched up within a day of their listing!

I'm looking for one within a 10 hour drive from Grand Haven, MI (49417). The condition would have to be safe to tow that distance and ready to be slept in on the first night. I'm not too concerned if it smells like camp, but not like an ash tray or litter box. My budget is <$5000

Missed opportunity?

I saw a Scamp listed in Southern Illinois for $5000. It didn't have the furnace or gas fridge I wanted...so I waited. It is gone now. Was I wrong to wait, or should I have jumped?

You might also try search tempest.com. It will search Craigslist and E-bay sites
within your specified search radius.

Thanks Joe, I saw that on craigs. I guess I'm stuck on the nostalgia, it's got to be a Scamp. Good luck with your sale!

We will be selling our 1982 13' Scamp (just bought a 17' Casita). We're about 11 hours away in NW Alabama. We removed the furnace & propane and added a refrigerator (electric only) & AC, Fantastic Fan & other amenities. This may be farther away than you would want to travel but let me know if you want more info.

Sandra
