Greetings to all!

After years of tent camping we just bought our brand new 1983 Scamp named "Eggert". We found this webpage online last night and thought we'd join the club.

Eggert is a great little camper and does not appear to need much done...until Keri says so. Then, I'm sure a complete revamp. We're taking him out this weekend for a few days to check him out.

If it'll let me do it, pics are below of when we picked him up. Of course the red has to go!

He'll follow along behind my baby, which is a 78' CJ5. I've included a pic of how he'll look as everyone passes us!

A bumper-mounted AC, I haven't seen one of those before. Congrats, your new home on wheels.

I know! Works great but doesn't look great. We'll probably put in an overhead unit before long.

Welcome to the group.

Looks like a Highlander towing in the first picture. If you decide to use that as your TV, you will want to purchase a stinger that will allow you to tow level.

Double check because before a certain year Scamp did not build the roof to support roof top AC unless camper was ordered with roof top AC. Without those "ribs" molded into the fiberglass shell you will end up with a cracked egg and a floor mounted AC unit.

We don't have AC so have spent a year or so looking for ideas, and that back bumper mount or mounted on the tongue have both come up. Works fairly well on back bumper from what people have said, especially if one has an AC with a wireless remote control. Of course one does need to balance load so that chunk of rear weight is taken into account.

Very sweet little Scamper! Looks very clean and well cared for. And love your Jeep too. So color coordinated. We have a 1990 Scamp and love it. Best of the best!

No you won't! Not unless you're interested in having a really big sky light because the A/C is now floor mounted. Read RogerDat's post carefully.

I'm so envious of your complete rig....tow vehicle too! I too am a newbie just this week I bought my 1983 13' project Scamp!

I will be watching for your posts because we both have a similar egg! Does that make us Egg or Scamp cousins?

Congratulations on your purchase - happy camping!

JeepScamp - one of the reasons I have a project is that a PO (previous owner) installed a monster RV a/c on the roof. My poor baby couldn't hold the weight....I understand after taking with Mike at the factory, that my current hole in the roof can be repaired. I will install an Escape Hatch. I prefer a Fantastic Fan (which I know from Vandwelling buddies) although that would require some major fiberglass roof work which can be done sometime in the future when its more convenient to make a trip to the factory. ..and of course budget is involved in my current decision as well.
I sort of like the front dinnette with tongue mounted a/c method - just asthetics. Although where would the PP live?
