After three weeks with the scamp, we love it! It is a perfect size for us. And would even be perfect if we had one large, or maybe two medium dogs. But, since we have four medium dogs, we are going to have to get something bigger. So, we are selling it. it did a 5,000 mile roadtrip in great style, the only thing that went wrong was the sealing on the windows and vent gave out after the bumpy ride. Pretty east to fix, and we did most of it already. It has new tires, and we have stripped out all the old stuff. It is great for a couple. Full sized bed platform with a whole lot of storage. The vent are there so you can cook inside. I am not saying you should do so, but we did several times without any trouble. Room to stand up inside. And a nice bench to sit on to read that can also double as a guest bed. It does need a little bit of love, and it is nearly 30 years old. But it is in great shape for the age. It is light enough, around 1200 pounds, that I think most 4 cylinders would pull it. We lost about 3, maybe 4, mpg on our trip.

$1100 without the (new) mattress, $1250 with.

I don't think the ride made the window seals leak. It has more to do with no verticle supports. Looks like it is missing the closet and the kitchen. The roof does look a little flattened out. This would be a good one to study the effects of ill-advised modifications.
