Oh my, congratulations! Good for you!! Can you restrain yourself from sleeping in it tonight in your driveway?

Your moniker 'lisantica' seems so familiar to me for some reason, and I'm trying to recall where I've heard it before. Hmmm...... are you by chance a flashaholic? I go by 'Rexlion' on cpf.

I do want to sleep in it, but I best wash the bedding etc. first.
Yes indeed, long time flashaholic, that's probably where you recognize my username.

I'll post photos soon, but since the Craigslist ad is still up at the moment....you all can see it.
I paid $4K:

LOL, here's the Scamp!
I've never towed a travel trailer before but for some reason, I think my Sprinter was more stable with that little Scamp on the back. Of course, I slowed down a lot as it was my first time towing it.

Scamps and cassitas tow really well my 17 FT CASITA Pulls great no tow bars or anything/If you really are serious fiberglass is the way to go,dont be afraid to buy used people generally take good care of these and even the ones that dont do pretty well because of the way they are constructed they dont fall apart like other rvs do when out in the elements!

So far it looks in great shape and not much of a fixer upper. Well done and great price.
Nice that it has an awning too.

Thanks Walt!
Funny you mention the awning, I haven't even opened it yet, don't know how.
Thankfully the owner's manual was in the Scamp, then there's always YouTube.

I started a new thread asking about parts for fixing it, but thought I might post the question here as well:
Some things that it needs are:

Water storage tank. It is not there and I don't know what it should look like. It is one of those pump faucets.

Covering for outside outlets, see photos:



Frame for escape hatch:


Would these be parts I would buy direct?

Also, I noticed some of my knobs are round, some square, is that common? Just curious mostly.



Thank you for any input!

$5800 asked, $4000 paid... you are a good negotiator! Thanks for posting that info, because asking prices are soooo high on used ones and it's helpful for potential buyers to see a genuine selling price for a change.

I'm going to say that round and square knob mixtures would not be factory original. As for the parts you need, others will know more but I think Scamp should have most of them.

By the way, you have answered your question about how to know which trailer to buy. Answer: buy the first one you can find, provided the price and condition are agreeable!

Any sagging carpet issues can be handled witha large syringe and rubber cement! Good pick&bartering!
