Wanted: Newish Scamp or Casita wanted

Hi,

I am looking for a Scamp or Casita from 13' up, with or without bathroom.

I do prefer a dedicated bed, and my first preference would be a shower and bathroom, but otherwise, I can make the porta potti option work

The more recent the model, the better.

The camper must be mold free.

Please PM me if you are selling something that fits the description.

Thanks! Margaret

Do you have pics? Also, if there is even the tiniest chance of mold, I can't do it . . . .

Thanks, Margaret

If you are extremely mold sensitive you have my sympathy because it is so very difficult to go any place other than your own home as there is so much risk of the tiniest bits of mold being there. You most certainly could not live in the Western areas of Washington, Oregon or in Coastal Northern California and thrive with that condition.

You need to purchase a brand new FGTV from the factory if you want to be sure there is not even a tiny bit of mold in the unit. That is absolutely the only way you won't have a chance of the tiniest chance of mold.

If you are going to purchase a fiberglass RV look for one that is made with a double wall fiberglass shell system. The outside wall is fiberglass, then an additional inner fiberglass wall with heat reflective insulating material between them. The Scamps and Casitas are not made that way.

The fiberglass shells of these RVs does not breath which means any moisture from the interior that gets behind the inside wall finishes can condense against the inside surface of the shell. That means there is always a potential for hidden mold happening that is not going to be seen by a visual examination. You would need to have professional air quality testing done to know for sure if an older RV has any specs of mold in it or not. That will be something you will have to arrange and pay for. Even on a regular house such an examination is considered to be the buyers responsibility. It is an expensive test to do as it requires sensitive equipment and also requires completely sealing up the unit so that outside air does not throw off the testing by letting in any mold spores from other sources.

Therefore no owner can give you a promise (that will hold up) that the RV is mold free unless they have recently gutted it and put in all new materials. All they can tell you is that they don't know of any mold. But since they can't see behind the inner surfaces on a not so recently rebuilt interior that is not going to satisfy your standards.

Hi K. Corbin,

Any used product I bought would have to be tested for mold, and it would have to be located in a dry climate. The problem with new campers is the off gassing and chemicals!! I have been in a few, and they all made me feel sick.

Hi Pat,

Sorry for the very late rsvp. Do you still have it? The problem is, my understanding is that northern CA is humid. I can't buy a used camper that's been in a humid climate.

Margaret. Northern CA is very dry. No humidity. No musty where I am or where I've been. Just to educate you.
More mild desert.
