Just bought an 81 Scamp
off Ebay. Now that we have her in the driveway, I'd say I paid about three times what I should have. She was supposed to be ready to go, but live and up close she looks like a project. Live and learn. Still looking forward to getting her to the campgrounds.
For the time being, we're calling her "Eggbert." Not very original.
Another candidate is "Huevo Ranchero." I kinda like that.
We're open to suggestions!
Quick question: Is the Scamp
REALLY supposed to sit that low? Or do I need new springs? Or have people modded them to make them sit higher regardless?
One thing that is cool about mine is the custom diamond-plate guard the original owner built to cover not only the front of the trailer but also the propane
tank. The guy was a metal worker, and it is really well done. Wish I could say the same about the interior. Hmmm. REALLY dark blue headliner; can't tell if it's original. It needs to go. Carpet needs to go. Lots of scrubbing to do. The original owner used it pretty hard--he was building a cabin in Alaska and sleeping in the trailer. I'm just hoping the floor is okay. I did not buy this thing intending a total rebuild.
I've enjoyed lurking here the past few days.
