Government Auction of a Scamp

Here might be a good opportunity to get a late model 13 foot Scamp for a good price in nice condition.

Given the others in the background of the pictures there may be more to come from this government seller!

Better hurry auction ends tomorrow!

2005 Eveland s Inc Scamp 13 ft. Standard Travel Trailer w/ Key - Government Liquidation

When a neighbor saw my Scamp he mentioned that when he was in the military the base he was stationed at had some Scamps that the personnel could rent for vacations. It may be the same thing with this one.

A fella over on the FaceBook page mentioned a few weeks ago having gone over to Wright Pat AFB and took a look at them. His eyes on report is that they are ROUGH, his words. He felt the last round was considerably overbid. These were rental units. These have been auctioned in little bunches since July, IIRC.

Just to clarify, Government Liquidations is a private company, although it looks like government.

It is reported that there is a fee involved for the liquidation company with official sounding name, but no, isn't governmental. Some have complained the fee is pretty stiff. Weigh all the factors involved, I supppose, like all intelligent purchases.

There is a 12.5% buyers fee premium with this auction. That's were the auction company is making its money. The ONLY surprise there is that in the past when the government entity did their own auctions they did not charge a buyer's premium. Now it is very rare to find any local, state or Federal auction that is NOT conducted on behalf of the government entity by a private auction contractor. The government entities have found out that their items bring "Mo Money" when a private auction contractor does the auctions as the private contractors do a MUCH better job at promoting the auctions and many of these contractors have regular customers who follow their auctions.

Yes this auction company is not a government agency. It is a private company that contracts with local, state and federal entities to auction off surplus government property and seizures just like govdeals.com and others. Their focus is the auctioning of government surplus property.

The State of Tennessee previously conducted their own auctions for state surplus/seizures however no longer does this on their own. The auctions and administration of the auctions is now done by a private contractor. Here is the website for a State of Tennessee current surplus/seizures auction of vehicles and other items:

State of Tennessee – Pickup Trucks, Sedans, Motorcycles, and More - Auctions By Gov

As is always the case read the terms, conditions and fees for any auction!

There were a few Casita's auctioned by this same company at the Barstow, CA Army base a few months back: a) Even from the pics, they were trashed, b) It's a PITA to inspect and c) They all sold for well over market value, based on condition and location (I.e., in the middle of nowhere) & d) You have no ides what works and that doesn't work. Right now, at $6500, for a 2005, I think it is topped out.

I guess the BIG question here is why in the hell is the Army WASTING our tax dollars in the camper trailer rental business?

A couple years ago at a campground in Georgia we met a military family camping with a Casita 16 or 17. It was a rental for military personnel on whatever base he was stationed at, don't recall which one. He said the first time they used the camper it was almost new and in great condition. Next time it was getting beat up. I would say that is typical of any rental equipment. Surely the reason Uhaul gave up renting campers after 8 years or so.

Each of the Services have a division that provides recreational opportunities and equipment to those than might not have that ability otherwise. They provide everything from sports equipment to camping equipment to RV's for service members and their families to use. They also maintain campground and camping facilities on a number of bases for active and retired service member use. A great use of tax dollars for those that are willing to risk everything to protect us.
