New Member seeking small fiberglass camper

Hi, I am Beth, looking for a small, vintage, restored Boler, Scamp, or the like, preferably the short model, and with a shower (I read somewhere that even some of the 13' models had this, or could be retrofitted as such.) Another possibility would be an off-road high-clearance micro lite, with a rear door ramp. Thanks! I'm located in the US, Chicago area, and also spend time in Colorado. Looking to keep costs low as possible.

Smile Welcome



Beth, you either have to have the cash or the skill.

Trailers that are inexpensive likely need work.

I have just discovered that the Canadian dollar is down against the American dollar, so if you can swing it an Outback listed on their website as $14,900 CAD would translate to $11,286 US.

Welcome, Beth!

One thing you're up against is that showers in 13' trailers are a fairly recent development. I'm not sure when Scamp and Casita came out with their front bath models, but they would hardly qualify as "vintage" and probably wouldn't be exactly inexpensive either, unless they needed a lot of work.

On the other hand, adding a shower to a vintage unit, while possible, is far from a beginner's project. It means adding a hot water heater ($$), a shower pan and surround, a grey water tank, and plumbing for hot water, cold water, drain water, and propane. And are you looking for a toilet, too?

One place to begin your research is the classified archive at fiberglass-rv-4sale.com to get a feel for what's out there and at what price points. I'd start with recent Scamp and Casita sales looking for front bath 13'ers.

Best wishes in finding what will work for you!
