Smile I took the plunge!!!

Hello to all - very good to be here.

My name is Jo Ann and I live in Kalamazoo, MI. I purchased a 1984 16í Scamp w/ the side bath one month ago today. And Iíve been lurking on these forums for a couple months now. Will post a few pics of the Scamp. Iím planning a fairly extensive renovation: replace axel & brakes, caulk & paint ensolite lining, replace most all appliances, repair/upgrade wet bath & plumbing and electrical, add solar, re-upholstery and re-decorate and generally make it my own. My T.V. is a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

The Scamp seems to be in fairly good condition for a trailer thatís 34 years old. It appears to have been stored inside, though it is dusty and needs a good deep cleaning. There is evidence some PO attempted to renovate earlier, leaving drill marks where none should be. Iíll learn to work with fiberglass and bondo to repair.

Want to say in advance, thanks for the great counsel and advice offered by the members of these forums. You have been a bounty of wisdom and experience already!!

Looking forward to collaboration along the journey and hopefully our meetings face-to-face in the future.

Welcome!

Welcome to the forum Jo Ann! It appears you found a vintage Scamp that's fairly original, un-altered, but also in good shape. Good luck with your renovation and hope to see you camping!

We have a son now working in Kalamazoo, so we've been getting out that way frequently. Camped in your very nice little city park (Markin Glen) for a few days last year with full hookups!

-John

Very, very nice condition trailer you have there for sure! Is that last picture in your storage area? If so, what a terrific garage, that will make project work so much easier!

Its a tribute to Scamp and the former owner as well that a 34 year old trailer can survive in such nice condition.

I like the side bath 16 like yours as you end up with large windows front and rear.
