Hi, I'm Jane from Colorado

My husband and I have ordered a 13 ' Scamp. We're waiting patiently (or not). In the meantime, any tips from anyone , about anything, would be wonderful. I've picked up a lot of great information just reading through these forums. Thank you so much , in advance !

Jane

Welcome Jane! I know the excitement you're feeling. It seemed like an eternity before we picked up our Snoozy once we ordered it. I immediately started shopping for little things to personalize it as our own. It really did help with the wait time. I also planned our first shakedown camp near by so we could learn about our camper to see what we needed and didn't need. Your wait time will pass quickly and you'll be picking it up soon!

I've already started collecting some items for the Scamp. I have some things in the "cart" on Amazon, both functional and decorative. I just wish I had mock ups for the closet and cupboard spaces. There are so many good ideas for storage , but I'm hesitant to start/get any without having the Scamp in the driveway. We won't get it until end of August-beginning of Sept. I'm finding it hard to be patient.

Congrats on your new order. We ordered our Bigfoot Dec 7th and in the same waiting mode as you so I totally understand. Fortunately, the dealer already had a stock floor plan model we wanted on order so we could customize to our liking and look at an April delivery date. Like others mentioned, we are camping near by for the first couple of weekends so we can make sure we understand everything. Good luck with the waiting. I'm hearing Fiberglass is worth the wait!!! :-) We are south of Denver, where are you?

Hi Karen, We are up in the mountains outside of Black Hawk. It's going to be a long wait for our little Scamp. We have a trip planned for the end of Sept.-beginning of Oct. to the northwest corner of Washington ( Olympic NP, Cascades, San Juan Island, Mt. Rainer NP ) I'm trying to gather as many things for the egg ahead of time so I can concentrate on the storage compartments when we get it. I love all the suggestions on these forums !! So helpful !

You may want to check out a fiberglass rally somewhat near you this spring/summer to look in a Scamp for ideas. Also, you could post that you would like to see if anyone has a similar layout Scamp near you so you could visit it.

You are so correct to go slow and deliberate on figuring out what you will need to pack and how to set your Scamp up so it is right for you. On our first two or three trips both my DW and myself were taking along more than we needed. Then we gradually sorted things out.

E.G: I packed an extra car jack in the Scamp, but then concluded that the trailer is never without its tow vehicle, and the TV always has a jack. Got rid of six pounds right there. On the other hand, a reasonably complete tool box is always handy. As far decorating, that's the other department.

Welcome and congratulations!

Hi Jane, Welcome
We have a Scamp 13 that we picked up at Scamp this past Sept and are having a great time with it. Its the deluxe with bathroom, but not the wood cabinets. did not want the extra weight.
I will get together what I found to be absolutely necessary, plus a few good ideas if you so want and e-mail them to you.
We also waited almost a year for our Scamp and were glad we did, best time of our lives.

Why not just post your thoughts here for the benefit of others?

Sure, I can do that. Its that it may take a while, can't get to it right away. Want to make sure I don't miss anything.
