Dan if you can post a photo of the inside as that may also give us a hint as to the year.

This is what the windows in a 73 would look like.Mine is a 76 but the windows were the same.

Rat fur? Dan are you sure it's a 1973, which should have ensolite (aka Elephant Skin)? Rat fur was put into Scamp mid-1987 on.

Maybe it has new windows. New wall covering is a bigger job, but if the old windows leaked, maybe the wall covering is also a redo???

Judging by the look of the door the trailer frame is bent and/or broken curbside, a common problem with these trailers, it may just need to be straightened and re-welded, Roy in TO did a similar repair to his trailer if you can find his posts on the subject

The problem is that because of the door opening the frame is weaker on the curbside and rough roads cause a twisting that weakens the frame, the right front corner drops and the fiberglass shell cracks above the door

Yeah, that sounds like what has happened, I guess. No way do I have the skills, tools, or ability to fix it myself. Is there a "quick fix" that maybe sorta works and is cheaper/easire or is paying someone to fix it the right way easy/affordable?

From another thread, comes the admonition to make sure the title is squeaky clean!

BIG Title transfer problem!

Otherwise, good luck in your hunt!
Hi, Dan

PLEASE TELL US YOU TOOK THE ABOVE VERY EXCELLENT ADVICE!!!
There is no way the Scamp in the picture is a 1973.
If that's what it says on your title, the title does NOT belong to this trailer.
I hope you're close enough to the seller to make him/her accompany you to the DMV for the title transfer to answer their inevitable questions!

Francesca

Francesca, I don't have the title here -- it's at my office -- and I don't remember. I remember that the title had hardly any info on it, it was for a trailer but wasn't detailed like a car title is, but it was in his name and he signed it over to me. I thought I was following the advice from here.

Hoo- boy!

Well, let's hope when you look at the title tomorrow there's a "9" or even an "8" where you think the "7" is!
And that you can find the VIN #
Are there licence plates that match the title/registration?
I almost hate to ask, but- is it an out of state title?

Francesca

Hi, Dan
FYI:
Re: Location of VIN#

(The following is from a 2007 thread re. bad title : I think "on top" means "on top of the tongue")

In case you don't already know it, Scamp puts the VIN number on the sticker inside the the A-frame on the curb side and also stamps the VIN into the metal on top, about a foot behind the edge of the coupler. You may have to remove some paint to see it, but first try shining a bright light across that area for contrast.
