First the technical stuff;

1983 Scamp 13’ Travel Trailer. Good condition. In the last two years has had the following work;

•New 2200lb Dexter axle with brakes on 2" lift & all new wheels & tires (including spare). You will notice that this Scamp does not drag the ground unlike most others of this age. Hitch height is 18" (top of ball). Tires are 175/80ST13 Rated C, so should be good for 50,000 miles
•Trailer coupler re-wired to six pin with connections for brakes & charging of the heavy duty battery
•New hand-pump faucet, tubing & waste water drain fitted.
•New City water fill installed - this is not the cheap Scamp plastic part but a proper pressure regulated filtered unit.
•New swivel trailer jack
•Wind down stabilizer jacks installed at rear.
•Spare tire mount reinforced
•Roof vent resealed
•New interior 12V lighting installed
•Exterior rivets/caps replaced & interior acorn nuts replaced (this week)
•Entry step area reinforced

Prior to our purchase the previous owner had completely re-upholstered the interior & had a RV dealer install a wall mount AC unit & new cook-top with gas piping & ice box. I checked the AC unit & they have plumbed a drain into the wheel well.

When we got the camper the board to which the table mounts had pretty well disintegrated. Most likley from water leakage at the bottom of the rear window seal & condensation accumulation. I have replaced the original piece of chipboard with a double laminate of marine plywood glass bonded into place of the original. (This is much stronger than the original) I also resealed across the bottom of the window & have verified that the camper is watertight. In the pictures you will notice that the insulation in this area does not match - I could not get hold of '80's spec ensolite but this stuff seems to match OK & can be painted any colour.

Now the more interesting stuff;

We have used the camper for three "proper" trips in the two years it has been with us. Firstly a two week trip to Florida where we visited Key West & the Everglades. On the way down we stopped at Long Pine Key campground - this is a must do as the sites all back onto the ocean for a spectacular view at breakfast. In the everglades we got to laugh at the people in tents trying to cook & eat outside with all the mosquitoes whilst we sat in comfort (this was our first camper & previously it would have been us in one of the tents...). We crossed the Tamiami trail & saw more 'gators than you could shake a stick at. Then best of all Tampa Bay Power Station. Sounds a bit odd but thay have lots of Manatees!

Next up was a week in the Shenandoah where we saw rain, mist, rain & Bears! The awning, a very fetching '80s gold & cream affair proved particularly useful. Then our last week away was to the Smokies, another beautiful area. No bears this time but we did see Elk.

We have really enjoyed exploring the Southeast in our little Scamp but we now have a new addition to the family & a new adventure planned. So sadly it is time to say good-bye. We will be moving back to England in the summer & before then we want to spend three months doing a proper road trip; Grand Teton, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Crater Lake, The Pacific Ocean, that kind of thing. Our son will be six months old when we start so I guess he won't remember much but we should have some amazing pictures in the family album.

& Finally the nitty gritty;

I am asking $4,150 OBO. I consider this a reasonable price for the condition of the camper & the work that has been done on it - this camper is ready for somebody to hook up & just go. All the "Big Stuff" has been recently replaced so there is a long & hopefully happy life ahead for this little unit.
