The seller just text me and said she's at the Camping place where they bought it and they called the DMV and its a 2001. Grrr Am I gonna have to drive out there and compare the title to the vin on the camper myself? Goodness. So as far as the DMV goes the title is fine so I'm good to go. I guess I need to get the rest of my $$ together and get out there and get this thing before they sell it out from under me. I guess the year of the Scamp will always be up in the air until I get her fixed up and get her out there for experienced eyes to look at. Or take lots of pics for you guys

It's very common for trailers to be "retitled" for one reason or another, in which case the "model year" will be given as that year in which the new Title was issued. I wouldn't sweat this at all, again, provided that the VIN on the title is an exact match to the one stamped on the trailer tongue.

Scamp is one of the few FgT manufacturers that permanently stamped VIN numbers there (top of right side tongue frame member), and if that number matches the one on the Title, you're good to go as far as I'm concerned.

To clarify...you guys are my experienced eyes. I meant if there was a meetup of sorts soon.

I'm pretty sure Four Paws Kingdom has a Casita rally yearly...it's a campground totally for dogs here in NC. Just throwing that out there for the Casita owners.

Francesca makes a good point. As long as the vin on trailer and title match, you will be okay. Can't wait to see more pictures.

When I went to tag our trailer in Oklahoma, I was given the option to
just tag it like a utility trailer (no sales tax), or if I wanted a title then
I would have to pay the excise tax ($700) to get a title. I opted for the
title which may have been foolish on my part, but knew it would be important
if I ever decided to sell or trade it in. To title, or not to title.....that was the question.

Looking at boats around here I found out quick that the title could be a messy issue.

Would you have saved the tax money?

Hey Kd *waves back*,
I'm another North Carolinian and probably have fewer posts than you.
We had a Casita (rat fur did in my allergies). We've sold it to my brother and are eagerly awaiting picking up our new/used camper.
I'm on the coast of NC

Yay just got her in the driveway

The door is still wonky and has been rigged. The seller said they had it fixed but it flung open when we pulled into my neighborhood. I'm just going to nip that and go ahead and order new hardware and sealing stuff from Scamp. The last thing I want is water damage. I was going to dilly dally on the inside for a bit but a spider was on the door curtain...I don't do spidys. So I took Guy's lead and put a fogger in there!!! And now I wait.

The sellers dad towed it to the house for me. Many thanks to him because I could not find anyone to put a hitch on my xterra in three days. Short of taking it to Nissan and they wanted a mint. I was going to get a tow company for $95 for 20 miles. But the sellers dad said he'd do it for $20...I gave him $45 for being so kind...and he said he was going to take his lovely wife out to dinner. Win win

Now I'm just waiting for the other half to get home to roll her to the back yard.

Just having her in my driveway makes me happy happy happy!!

Congratulations. You'll have a lot of fun with her. Just a little free advice. Don't worry about getting it too perfect. Just get it street worthy and safe. Do all the necessary safety jobs to get it on the road and comfortable. Then go camping while the weather is nice. You can work on doing all those other things to make it your own, but do it when the weather gets too bad for camping.

Congrats. Someone else had just posted the other day, that their door kept opening going down the road. He repaired it by just removing the door handle and rotating it the outside handle 180 degrees. This method appears to help the weak internal spring by counter weighting the inside door handle. Cheep and worth a try.

I will definitely try that because the hinges are 'tight'. If I hold my mouth right it will latch. It's like even with them rigging the hinges tight it doesn't hit the strike plate...it's hitting low. But they have 2 long bolts through the hinges to try to pull it up. The bolts are 2 different lengths with different amount of washers on each hinge to make it work...*ahem* eyesore. And of course it worked until we pulled into my neighborhood. Lol Thanks for the tip/suggestion I'll look at it close in the morn. I'm so excited to get started!!!

Scamp hinges have springs and brass balls to ride on, with the long bolts through them. Scamp sells a rebuild kit that contains all these relatively cheep.

Well the dogs are already doing laps around the Scamp in the backyard. They love to help by sitting on the bunk and stealing the fan lol. So last Friday morn they were barking at something underneath it. Finally I went out there and looked...thinking/hoping it would be one of my cats. Nope an opossum playing possum...sheesh now we're all squealing!!!! So today while I clean etc I'm going to be all paranoid. Scooped him with a shovel very dramatically flailing/dancing and put him on the other side of the privacy fence. Fingers crossed no surprises today
