And those wire looking things down the side are where he mounted another set of brake lights. His wife said the original lights worked so i'm not exactly sure why he did that, but they go all the way from front to back. I'll be moving that too.

Hmmm....those are add-on temporary tow lights- they stick to the bumper with magnets.

Clearly, either the tow vehicle connector didn't match the trailer, OR- you won't like this- the lights on the trailer don't work.

Is he letting you have those lights? If not: if you're planning on bringing this trailer home on Saturday, you might want to invest in a set of those yourself. You can buy them for about thirty bucks, and if it turns out you don't need them you can take them back to Walmart or wherever.

He's leaving the lights on there. But i agree that it may be because the others do not work. "He" is out of town until Friday. His wife was 'guessing' most of the info...and her answer was typically 'it worked last time i used it'...in regards to the water and stove. I paid $2500 for it so i expect to work for it. When i get it home i'm going to start a checklist. (a very overwhelming checklist lol)

Welcome from a fellow newbee

Welcome from a fellow newbee to the Scamping community. I got my Scamp a few day's ago. First thing I did was "fog it" made sure all the little critters were goners. Than wiped down the entire surface, now i'm working on getting the cushions recovered for the summer season. Best to You

A fogger...brilliant idea. The meltdown i have over bugs is just comical. And yes i know that doesn't sound like a seasoned campers reaction lol but i'll never change.

waving back like crazy... looks like I'm late to the party! Nice looking Scamp, but it has to be late 1970s or early 1980s. Windows are the give-away.

I see Francesca tried to provide a link to decode the VIN, but I just get a picture of your Scamp when I click it.

Try this one: Decode Scamp VIN

I text the wife and asked about the title...this is what she text back.

The title says 2001 year model vin # is 157r131081d010531

I'm going to have to try to decode and then compare the title to the vin on the Scamp. Doh gah!!

Don't let the windows fool you. Jalousie windows were an option in 2001. I don't have them on my 2001 but at the first campout I went to there was a 16 footer with jalousie windows. I was surprised when I asked the year of their trailer. It was a 2001 just 2 weeks old.

Scamp continued to offer the jalousie windows for several years into the early 2000's, before discontinuing them and only offering the sliders. Then just a few years ago they started offering jalousies again but they are the new version with the louvre section in the middle of the window. The entire window doesn't open as the old ones did.

My question is does this trailer has rectangle tail lights or round ones. If it's round ones then it's definitely older than the 2000's.

Okay, so the next question about the year is if it has Ensolite in the interior or Rat Fur? And yes, Scamp offer jalousies later than 1987, but I believe they were black anodized aluminum rather than silver. At least the 2001 16' Scamp I saw (Jerry's & Velma's) had black anodized full jalousies.

Joy you make a good point but there are a few other things about the trailer that stand out to be as indicating its a number of years older than 2001.

1 is the tail lights - zoomed in on the ad and they appear to be the old wedding cake style.

2 the old Scamp tree logo on the side - when did they stop using that? I know its no where on my 92.

3 - The AC in the closet - Scamp hasnt put them in the closest for a number of years but not sure when they stopped.
