has been a good trailer, but we're not using it much anymore. Maybe it's time to let it go. So here's what we've got- a 1985 Scamp
16 in excellent running condition. The original bathroom and water tank was removed by a previous owner, who wanted the lightest and largest trailer possible. That goal was achieved. I've weighed this empty at 1850 lbs, and loaded for the road at one ton. For years, we towed it with a Subaru Forester.
The most unusual thing about this Scamp
is its reinforced frame tongue (double thickness) and raised axle
(approx. 14 inches of ground clearance below the frame rail). Check the photo for proof of the ride height. This trailer is ready for off-road adventures, if you are.
My maintenance and mods include:
-- a Prodigy RF brake controller with hand-held remote, so no vehicle modifications are required to use the brakes
(one year old).
-- a MaxxFan, for active and passive ventilation, rain or shine.
-- the original roof vent/escape hatch was replaced last year, too.
-- a Suburban Furnace
installed in a box opposite the door (takes up no cabinet space that way). It's three years old.
-- three new Goodyear Marathon tires
and new wheel bearings (last year).
The interior is all original in Scamp beige. That means two front bunks, some stains on the beige carpet and door, but nothing nasty. With some TLC and minor updates, it could look a lot better, but everything works. The cooktop cabinet has an oak front.
The exterior has one strong but visible repair on the right rear corner. I've removed the big Scamp decals from the side.
Asking price--- $6800.
This trailer can be seen in suburban Denver. Let me know if you have any questions. We're selling it to pay for some house repairs, and we might replace it with a smaller trailer later on.
