Am I missing some photos of this mystery trailer? I can't see the spare tire or the taillights on it

(Not that it applies to this project trailer, but since you mentioned it, my Boler's spare is mounted from the back bumper (looks like a home-made mount); there is no evidence it was ever mounted to the body)

Edited to add: Oh looky - here's that door window! While perusing the archives I ran across member Mary M.'s Scamp named "Crunch":

Good find Raya! Now we need to determine the year.

Not seeing the tail light is a clue on its own. I think the little bump on the one pic must be the water fill. Scamp liked the back curbside corner for that.

Brings out the sleuth in us, doesn't it?

I wonderd about that little "bump" on the rear, passenger-side corner. Didn't really look like a taillight, and I think license plate holders are typically on the other side. It sure does look like one of those little "cup style" water fills, now that you mention it.

I don't see where Mary ever mentioned the year of her trailer (shown above, named "Crunch"), but I think April Wilcox's Scamp has the same door window, and hers is an '83

Door window in April's 1983 Scamp:

Actually, there was some question whether April's was a Scamp, but lacking any evidence to the contrary (and I think the sellers either said or the title said it was a Scamp) I think it was deemed a Scamp. Wouldn't hold up in court though I also noticed when retrieving this door photo that it has what I think of as the Scamp-style "escape hatch" in the roof - not sure if any other brand used that or not. (April, I hope you don't mind us using your trailer for evidence )
