Hi all, another newb from florida

I just found this site by accident while checking out a new to me Scamp 16' travel trailer. I've seen a few on the road @ a distance but not up close. We tradded our 20 ' prowler for it cause we can't pull it with our chevy colorado. I am so glad I found such an informative site, I need all the help I can get. This one needs a lot of TLC and then some. I could not bring up the ID# soI can't find out the age & model, Is there another way?
TIA for any help. Sandy From Fla.

Hi Sandy, check this link: Scamp VIN Decoding to determine the year of your trailer. I take it you didn't get a title?

Hi, Sandy

Isn't the age and model on the Trailer's Title?

Hoo, boy.
No title's a common problem with scooters and here's a site that's done some work on legal solutions which should work for any "vehicle":
Register a barn find - scoot.net
Here's what they have for Florida:

Florida
According to the Tax Collector's office in Hillsborough county, vintage scoots without titles need to be registered as bikes built from parts (if it didn't come in parts, just say it did, and that you assembled it yourself, and save yourself any potential headaches). To do this, you need the bike inspected by the Florida DMV to establish road worthiness. They'll look it over and give you paperwork, certifying that the bike does exist and does run, to take back to the Tax Collector's office. No bill of sale is required, just that DMV paperwork. Pay $78 and you get a title. Plates will be more, if you're doing your registration at the same time. Antique vehicle plates are available, but don't apparently save you any money on scooters as they do with cars. Transferring an existing plate will save a bit of money, too.
[edit]


Good luck!

Francesca
