New Scamp Owner

Hi there my name is Scott. I bought a 1989 Scamp 3 weeks ago for $400.00. This was to be my winter project but redid it in 9 days and went camping this past week. Here are some pics of before and after. Looking forward to hearing from all with any questions or comments. Click image for larger version

Looks great and what a deal.
How did you get it so shiny?

Jack up one side (on the frame near the axle, not on the axle itself). Watch to see if the axle arm drops as the frame rises. Little or no movement indicates a worn-out axle. You can also check clearance between the top of the tire and the inner wheel well. Other signs are uneven tire wear and excessive bouncing (like curtains & cushions & cabinet contents on the floor).

Registry
New Scamp Owner

You can set a few things from the app, but for a lot of stuff - like your avatar, privacy settings, etc. - you need to log into the website and go to your user control panel (blue bar under your login information, look for "User CP" at the left). We'd also love to have your trailer added to the registry. Go to the tab at the very top that says "Registry" and select "Add/Edit My Trailers."

Boy are you sure thats a 1989? It looks newer than that!! What side of the trailer is your power cable and city water hook upon ? in 89 those would have been on the passenger side of the trailer -but I don't see them there on yours, they did not move them over to the drivers side until the mid 90's.

The title has it a 1989. Electric and city water are on the drivers side. Keep in mind I detailed the outside and inside.
