New Scamp Owners

After searching 4 websites 3 times a day for a year, my wife finally found our Scamp and we picked it up yesterday.

1985 Scamp16 - layout 4. Everything is original and in pretty great shape except:
-toilet removed - we were going to remove it anyway for more space
-AC removed
-ceiling vent removed (both professionally redone by a fiberglass shop)

.....we need AC so we will be looking to reinstall..... and I would prefer a ceiling fan/vent but may settle for a window fan.

Can't wait to get started making her our own! Thanks.

Welcome! The trailer looks great for its age. Nice find.

The older Scamps were never designed to hold an AC on the roof. They put extra reinforcements into the roof at the factory to hold the AC onto the roof. The older Scamps such as yours and mine had the AC located in the bottom of the tall closest by the door. So if you decide to add an AC on the roof you may have to reinforce the roof before installing one.

Looks sweet, nice find.

"checking 4 websites 3 times a day" Boy can I relate, would it be rude to ask what you paid for it? I don't mean to pry just curious.

we were ready to go 5k for a 13 and she found this 16 for 4250.

AC in the roof - although more efficient - was not really an option i was thinking. but finding one to put back in the closet is high on the priority list.

Congratulations on your find after all your persistence.

There are some good threads on closet AC install on the forum. Key piece is making sure there is adequate outside air flow to the cooling side that is separate from the inside air you are trying to cool, that and water draining outside.

Was as Carol pointed out the stock install location, frankly I think it is the better option. Replacement is less expensive (any big box store has one) and preserves the clean lines and aerodynamics of the Scamp. Not to mention makes it easier to get into a garage without the AC sticking up.

'Looks like a beauty. If you'd like to consult with me about any sewing/decorating projects I'm your gal. Contact me through a PM (private message) by clicking on my name on my avatar. I absolutely love to make our 13' Scamp our own and decorate it with many themes. I've attached a photo of our Southwest/Desert theme. I also took some time to create comfortable bedding and custom black-out window shades that keep the interior insulated.

Kevin & Lisa welcome to Scamp Camp, Outfitting it the way you like it is as much fun as the hunt, I didn't have to hunt for mine but I know the feeling. Can't wait to see your updates.

What part of Ohio are you in? I am in the northeast part of the state near Mosquito Lake. I did the same thing searching the web only to see them way too far to travel and selling fast at that! I had a 19ft Scamp 5th wheel and sold it, ended up getting a new 16 standard.

Is that an awning I see or a tarp over the door, mine has two awnings in alum tubes on either side, never saw one like that, not that I have seen that many.
