1988 16' Project Scamp
$1800 OBO, decent condition but needs some work.
1988 16' Scamp Travel Trailer
I am selling my 1988 16' Scamp
. These rarely pop-up in the mid-atlantic DC area. I purchased the trailer with the intent of renovating/customizing it to my liking but time and space constraints require me to list it for sale
. At this point I've removed the bench modules, carpet (always wanted vinyl or pergo) so that I could inspect the current condition. Most of these older trailers encounter some common issues (window leaks
, sections of
floor rot) which aren't uncovered until you begin to disassemble them. I've uncovered these issues and I've priced it accordingly since I don't intend on reassembling it. I hope that this translates to a clear picture of what the current condition of the trailer is:
-16' Shell with all cabinet/closet fiberglass modules
-Lightweight trailer can be towed with gas efficient vehicle
-Trailer is rarely found on this side of the country
-Metal subframe in good condition
-Includes deluxe waterproof cover
-Installed brand new rear support jacks
-Includes cushions (These can be cleaned by stomping on them in the tub with water and detergent. Plenty of posts on this topic. This will help you avoid one of the major renovation expenses)
-includes kitchenette sink and propane
-Includes plywood cut to original standards for bed/dinette.
-Includes electric brakes
but not sure of condition
-Most of the disassembly has been performed and is ready for your customization
-Scamp factory is still in business and parts are available direct from Scamp
-Floor rot caused by window leak under front and rear window needs patching (fairly common in these older trailers). I've already created one of the cardboard templates to trace a new piece of wood (4'x8' piece of OSB is $13 at Home Depot)
-Marine fabric for the ceiling needs to be reattached using contact cement or 3M 90 Spray Adhesive.
-Fiberglass has a few nicks and some smaller holes from when the tail lights
-Spare tire location needs to be painted or gelcoated.
-Requires table hardware unless you intend on using the rear area as a permanent bed
-Closet door was not included when I purchased. (My wife intended to hang up a curtain instead of a door to add to the decor)
-I removed the fresh water tank and tubing since it's a relatively inexpensive update and I figured it was better to start fresh in the plumbing department.
I've listed the trailer in this manner so that I don't waste your time and because many people love DIY projects and can tackle the trailer in its current condition. Most of the impressive fiberglass trailers that you'll come across are those that have been customized with the owner's touch. This trailer is NOT a complete redo in terrible shape. It's in decent condition and needs a new owner to pick up where I left off. Thanks for taking the time to view this listing.
