New member with a 16' scamp project

Good morning, I'm very new here and what a great site. Here is our new to us scamp 16' project. We have been viewing lots of ideas on fixing her up for this coming summer. It appears to be in very sound shape, I think with some updating it will be a fun little camper... Scott

Hi Scott, to FiberglassRV. I can tell you in fact, it's not a 1989. I have a 1988 that has rat fur, not ensolite and radius slider windows. Wish I had the jalousies! If you have the VIN, see if the info here will help you determine your Scamps age: http://scamp.n0kfb.org/VIN_Decoding/VIN-Decoding.htm

Standard square windows, and Ensolite make it pre 1985 for sure. 4 lug wheels on a 16 I would say pre 1984. Still a nice looking trailer.

Floyd need to check in on this one.

Yep, You would have to cutback about 8" of plate off the RH frame rail to find it. With a 4 1/2 grinder and metal cutting wheel it could be done without too much trouble. The VIN/ serial number should be on your title or registration.

I agree with others that its older than seller suggested but still a nice looking trailer. Was there no VIN on the paper work from the seller?

I bought the scamp local here in N.H. with just a bill of sale only. No title and no reg as it was used as a hunting camp in the woods.. Thank god im in N.H. because it's very ez to reg vehicles in my state. But before I go that root im going to remove the diamond plate from the tongue to see if I can find the vin # first that way I should be able to figure out the year, instead of getting a state of N.H. issued vin #...

Good deal. You should have found the mfg. date and the reg. number should start with a E followed by six or so digits. The 17 digit VIN started sometime in 1982.

I think you scored! And we can help with the interior cleanup and hiding those seams.
