Not to mention the cost, as well as the additional tongue weight issues.

Good luck Michael. Be sure to take the checklist with you.

As "papaT' stated, these units are hard to find. I fell upon mine one day and went to see it the next. Owner at that time wouldn't budge on asking price. Since nothing else was available in Fl, I gave a deposit and came back in a couple of days with the rest of the cash. Scamps are few and far between. You see one, in at least Fl. you jump on it.

Thanks for all the advice!

I went to see an FGRV this morning but I did not have my check list yet. I will do better next time. The search is on. I have found a few more ads and will be trying to contact owners this next week.

Thanks Madalyn, I was in contact with the owners as soon as it was on CL and it has no shower just a toilet. I appreciate your help and the others on this forum who are moving my search right along.

Thanks again,
MichaelD

Sounds nice, but you better be careful hereabouts when you call your Scamp a 5th wheel, apparently some are in danger of becoming confused.

FWIW: I call it a 5th wheel, and I am very easy to confuse.

it is called a fifth because it connects to a hitch in the center of the truck bed.
all of our papers on it say" Fifth Wheel Deluxe" I guess this is why they call it a 'Classic" That's all I know about it. Let me know if this is incorrect!!

Technical quibble among technical quibblers, Randy. The identifier that Scamp uses for this particular model is in common use and consequently desirable for the purpose of communicating with buyers who may or may not be quibblers. If the deal's good enuf, even the quibblers will allow you to call it what you will without correction. Scamp 19' Deluxe is both accurate and official.

From the Scamp website:

"Scamp trailers can’t be beat for a convenient, fun camping experience. Call upon our experts to discuss whether our small, lightweight 13’ foot travel trailer is right for you or our mid-size 16’ towable camper with side dinette would fit the bill, or our if our largest 5th wheel travel trailers would be perfect."

Thanks for the notice on your Scamp 19. I think it is just too big for my tow vehicle. I am looking for a larger tug but, right now I have smaller vehicle that may not even pull a Scamp16.
Thanks again,
MichaelD
