Hello from Blackstone Massachusetts! 13' Scamp

Hello, Thanks for allowing me into a great group! I recently saved a 1994 13' Scamp from going to the salvage yard. The owner didn't pay his storage fees and the camper was sold at auction for 10 dollars it had 2 flat tires and the inside was written all over by vandals! The person who paid 10 for it thought it was to much work and was going to junk it so I gave him 100 plus 2 nhttp://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=100387&d=1475760241ew tires amother 100 and now I've got a bad @ss little camper! I'm looking forward to bringing it back to 100 % original and get a lot of use out of her! Thanks again have a great day
IF ANYONE IS LOOKING TO DOWNSIZE I WOULD LOVE TO TRADE FOR A 5th WHEEL!

Great save, Big John, and welcome to the forum!

It looks amazingly complete and sound. You've made great progress with the clean-up!

My biggest concern is the mold on the headliner and the evidence of moisture inside the trailer. I would check the floor carefully for rot before getting too far into this. I think there is a good chance the headliner can be saved with steam cleaning and treatment with an anti-microbial solution.

Have to say… whoever did this to a Scamp should be drawn and quartered, burned alive, and then kept on bread and water for a year and a day*… LOL…

From the pics and my old eyes
Are you sure it is a 13' scamp
It looks to me to be a 16' scamp
Either way
Great score

Yes the egg itself is 13 and then a couple feet for the tongue.. I would love to find someone who would trade with some cash for a 5th wheel! That's my dream!

You should be able to get the writing off the fibreglass pieces inside using a wool bonnet on a power polisher and some 3M Marine compound.

Figure out where the moisture is coming from & seal it up - looks to me that its coming from the roof - escape hatch perhaps or a fan? Take a steam cleaner to the headliner. Its a marine grade headliner so it will surprise you as to how well it will clean up & not retain the smell.

In the scamp trailer world then this would be a 16ft

Hello, The area's you see are area's I cleaned up with a solvent because kids has written ALL over the whole inside. I am thinking of taking the liner completely down and either leave it gone or put something else up in its place.

I was told it was a 13 Foot but you people all know better then me. I was able to pull the vin number from all the paint that was on the tongue and about the Vin# was 16-94 Would that be 16 foot trailer year 94 ? Thanks for all the help

It's clearly a 13'er. The entire galley is street side and immediately abutted by the dinette on one end and bunks on the other. The camera angle on the street side photo makes it look longer, but the curbside photo is clearly of a 13' Scamp. In molded fiberglass parlance, that's a 10' cabin on a 13' frame tongue-to-bumper.

John, I would make a serious effort to save the headliner before trashing it. It serves a number of important functions- condensation, light, and sound control as well as insulation- and replacing it requires taking out all the windows and interior cabinets. As Carol says, the headliner is marine grade and made of non-porous material, so mold and odors are on the surface only. Many people have been surprised at how nicely it cleans up. Bubbles and loose spots can be re-glued.

While the OP's measurements would suggest that, the interior layout and one of the outside photos has me scratching my head still. The interior layout sure looks like a 13'

A photo of the inside on the opposite side from the sink & stove might help to convince me its a 16'

Hi
thanks for the info, I haven't been able to find an answer to the numbers on the trailer tongue. I have these numbers 16-93 that's the first row. The second row is the 16 digit Vin and according to what I could find the letter is and R which makes the trailer a 1994 What is the significance of the top line 16-93 ?? Thanks Big John

I do not know what the 16-93 stands for but my guess might be it was built the 16 th week of 1993. You could always call Scamp and ask. Thats the nice part of owing a trailer still being made.

As I said looking at the gallery layout I think its actually a 13' but if you post some more photos of the other side of the inside of the trailer - that would tell the story.
