Lady & the Scamp

Hello FGRV Family!

My name is Darilyn but my friends call me Lady D, partially b/c of my history traveling on the Renaissance Faire circuit...

I am finally one of you now! I'd been considering upgrading from tenting with an air mattress to a pop-up when I visited a fried who had recently bought a 13' Burro, and it was love at first sight! Once I realized that I could pull one with my '03 Subaru Forester I started furiously searching for one... Alas, living on the East Coast, in the Philly Suburbs, there are not too many to be found... But I searched on...

After a few false starts, including a ridiculous Craigslist scam artist posing to be an army corporal and offering to ship the camper to me free of charge from Washington state, I was on the FGRV for sale site and I saw the ad that would change my life - a 2010 13' Scamp had been listed the day before and was located 3 1/2 hours from my home. Made an appt for the following day & rushed to the bank, (it was 1:30 on a Saturday and the bank closed at 2) ...

Drove out that Sunday and met up with the delightful couple who were the current owners but I knew right away, me and that scamp were meant to be together...

Well, that was last weekend... Over the following week I had the hitch/trailer wiring installed, had the transmission serviced on my Forester, watched you tube tutorials on how do drive with a travel trailer, then I went and brought her home yesterday... Spent the night camping out in my driveway last night & fell asleep with a smile on my face...

So that's my/our story... During the search process I spent a lot of time trolling the forums on this site & I can tell you all are a friendly, supportive, delightful group & I am so glad to be able to introduce myself and my egg...

Til next time...

Luv,
Lady & the Scamp

Hi Lady D, to FiberglassRV. I'm a true believer things happen for a reason and it's obvious this trailer was meant to be yours! Thanks for posting the pictures.

Ohh, was he in germany, soon to go to afghanistan or some such thing? I'm pretty sure I talked to him about a teardrop. I went from wanting a teardrop to a 19' fifth wheel...oops.

Thanks from Lady

Thanks for the welcome, y'all! I'm taking her on our maiden voyage next weekend - I don't think camping in the driveway counts, but it sure was fun!
