-sold-1979 13' Acorn (Scamp) in eastern South Dakota $3800

Purchased about 12 years ago, probably used it about 7-8 times total away from home. Standard layout, everything works. Selling it because wife wanted something with a shower, so we bought a "fixer-upper" Casita a few years ago that I plan on restoring this summer.
About the name Acorn: from my understanding, Scamp had to use the name "Acorn" for a short time because of a legal dispute over the name "Scamp". For all practical purposes it's a Scamp, and any parts ordered from Scamp should be compatible. I've ordered a few parts from them over the years and everything has fit fine.
Physical condition: it isn't what I'd call "mint", if that's what you're looking for, but is is in pretty good shape for its age and everything works. The upholstery is original and is in "ok" shape, but there is a spot worn on the edge of one of the dinette back cushions. Particle board table has some surface swelling due to spills/condensation/moisture. The shell is solid but has a few scratches. The floor is solid all around.
Located in Brookings South Dakota, about 45 miles north of Sioux Falls on I-29.
Price $3800

  • Weighs less than 1000 lbs, easy to tow
  • 3 way fridge (110 ac/12 dc/propane)
  • Gas furnace (vented and has thermostat but no 12v fan, good for dry camping)
  • Gas stove
  • 10 gallon fresh water tank
  • Ensolite insulation in good shape
  • Manual hand pump for sink
  • City water connection w/ sink faucet
  • 12 volt and 110 lighting
  • Portable toilet
  • Sleeps up to 4; dinette folds into full bed, front couch converts to bunk beds
  • Ez-lube bearings
  • Crank-out (jalousie) windows (nice to have in the rain)
  • 1-7/8 hitch ball
  • Clear South Dakota title

Recent Updates/Maintenance:
  • New Kumho tires put on last year, virtually no miles on them
  • Newer carpet (put in a few years ago, but hasn't seen much use)
  • Wife replaced curtains a few years ago, look ok but are starting to fade a little
  • Resealed top vent (butyl) last fall
  • New seam tape (ensolite seams)
  • New external fresh water and electrical hatches
  • Replaced most outside rivets, snap caps and acorn nuts last summer
  • Applied gator-guard liner to front bottom half of shell for protection against rock chips when traveling
  • Added stainless steel panel to fridge (original lime green and woodgrain panel stored behind new one)

Feel free to ask questions in the thread. If you'd like to set up a time to see the trailer, please contact me by private message (pm) or by sending an email to Thanks!
