Thousands of Scamp
owners have logged millions of miles and I have done my share in this wonderful camper. It is small, durable, lightweight, aerodynamic and easy to tow and maneuver. It can be towed by small cars, SUVs, mini vans, and trucks. I tow mine with a Honda Pilot.
Since 2009, my adopted son Enoch and I have created memories for a lifetime in this Scamp! However, he is now nine and already 5’4” and the pediatrician tells us that he will be 6’6” to 6’9” by high school. The 3/4 bed is getting smaller each time we sleep on it. I am 6’4” and wider so we need something bigger! I just can’t fit on the bunk beds.
weighs exactly 1100 pounds (see picture). The front sofa converts to two bunks and the rear dining area converts to a 3/4 bed. This camper is quite clean. The walls, door and ceiling are factory carpeted to add insulation. The floor carpet is good and so is the upholstery; no rips. Closet beside the door, cabinets over and under the sink, and under the bunks provide storage.
I use this camper year around: all summer and as a winter hunting camp in Pennsylvania, New York (Adirondacks), and now North Carolina (retired in 2012). A Coleman Buddy Heater does well but LP Gas range really heats it up!
I do not use the water or electrical
systems. The water system is intact, however, I converted the running lights
to standard trailer system with four-prong connection. Original wiring still in camper. I use portable lighting
and bottled water. A port-a-potty is included.
The kitchen is equipped with ice box, sink and 2 burner LP gas stove top. The table is custom polymer which was the first upgrade Enoch and I did together when he was four (see picture). Three sliding windows
and roof vent provide pretty good ventilation. Spare tire, propane
tank, and fire extinguisher are provided. The tires
are 13 inch and have about 50% tread.
