New to fiberglass and seeking out a scamp 13

Hello everyone, i've been an car camper, hiker, backpacker for a while now, it must be the whole Eagle Scout influence from when I was younger. My wife and I are expecting our first baby at the end of September and i am thinking a small travel trailer like the Scamp 13 will make things easier to deal with then tent camping. We upgraded our tv to a small suv with 2,000 lb towing capacity and I will soon work on building a fence and parking pad next to my garage to have a place to store the Scamp. I am in Chicago, so yard space is at a premium, but after measuring many times i'm confident the scamp will fit. I have enjoyed reading everything I can about fiberglass rv's, mostly scamp both here and at the Scamp owners international forum and hope to be able to see a Scamp in the Chicago area soon. I am busy with remodeling in preparation for the baby so i will most likely have to wait until this coming spring/summer to actually purchase a scamp, but it looks like its tough to find one so that may just work out.

Welcome, Dave! You'll love it! My only regret is waiting until our kids were 6 and 9 to start camping. Missed some prime time!

Best wishes finding your Scamp. Late summer and fall can be a good time to start your search. Not as many for sale, but your chances of snagging a good deal are better. We found ours in late October only 30 miles away.

Thank you for the advice Jon, i have a pretty specific set of requirements and cost that I have in mind and actually i should be done with my fence and parking pad early to mid summer of next year so it will be a good time to start looking for the camper. As a bonus it will help me extend my camping season. I have so many ideas in mind for the camper already, I've been soaking up the forums like a sponge.

Jim, thanks for letting me know. I may just take you up on that, or just stop by one day to see the scamp if that would be ok. Is it a front bath or front bunk? Shoot me an email gompkaa @ gmail.com

Chitowner Looking As Well

Hi Dave Sounds like you and I are in the same boat. I too have measured and remeasured the space between the garages. I think a Scamp will just barely fit, at least at my house on the NW side. If you beat me on getting your Scamp and consider renting it out on someplace like Outdoorsy, let me know!

And Jim, I'll be in the market for a 13 footer come next summer, with any luck. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the posting.
