If you look at the pictures for the auction ending next week you will see some other trailers in the background in similar condition, which look much more complete. I have no idea when they will be auctioned though.

If you look in the background of one of the other pictures you'll see more of the same. I have no idea when or if they'll be auctioned though.

Did you go and look at the trailers March 17?
If so how rough were they?
How far away do you live from the auction?
Thanks

The second picture from the left shows at least two more Scamps that still have the front window rock guards. I don't believe any of the already sold trailers from last week had rock guards or even front windows. It just looks like additional trailers that will soon be auctioned. I could be wrong though.

No, I completely forgot about it. We're about 50 miles away.

Kevin, there is a constant supply of these Scamps being off loaded by the government, they come up every few month. I've seen the for sale at several bases.

Fred was right in that they are used as parts trailers to keep other Scamp in the "recreation" program. We have gone and looked at them when they were for auction at Point Hueneme Naval Base. They are generally trashed. They have been used as rental units for military personal who were not gentle users to say the least. The lot we looked at had a couple that had been crashed, windows were missing in some and there was water damage to the floors, there was a fair share of moldy walls and carpet, the propane tanks were missing, no batteries, on some the hitches were broken and icebox and cabinet doors were missing or very damaged.

Now this is not to say that there might not be a gem in the bunch but I would never bid on one sight unseen. Not much scares me about these fiberglass trailers and the ones we saw were scary. It would take quite a bit of money and work to get one road ready (at least in the ones we looked at) and they didn't go cheap. The general price was 1200.00 to 3000.00, I think with the economy the way it is they will go cheaper but who knows?
