Carol, if you're talking about the Escape Forum, you can't use the same account as you do here. You have to register with that forum (or any other forum) separately. Of course, when you create your account, you can always use the same nickname as here.

Carol,

Go to the very bottom of the main page on Escape Forum and you will find Contact Us in white type on a black bar. Use that to alert admin to the problem you are having logging on.

Hi! New here! Just got a 1988 16' deluxe Scamp. It definitely needs some new foam in the upholstery. Any recommendations? Thank you! Rachel J

Congrats on your purchase, and welcome to the forum, Rachel.

I went to a mattress store, that sold foam, and got some real nice cushions made. Not real cheap but worth it. I looked at buying Ikea mattresses, and cutting them to fit, but there was just going to be too much waste to make it cost effective.

BTW, you should take a few minutes and fill out your User CP information, so your name, trailer and location show on your posts. This really gives members some background to questions you ask, that may be brand or location related.

Thanks for the info Jim!

Any ideas on a decent cover to protect my Scamp from the Sacramento heat?

Hello, I am new to the forum and would like to make the move and purchase the 13' Scamp soon, but my husband has great concerns about floor rot. I have been reading this forum and it has been very helpful. We will be in a very simple featured scamp as we are used to backpacking and tent camping. No grey water, No bathroom, no hot water heater.. we will be driving it back to Alaska where we know there is a resale market also? Thanks for any guidance. Lz in AK

Give us some more info so we can be of help in your search:


1. I take it you are coming to the lower 48 to find your Scamp. If so, what areas will you be visiting.


2. When will you be looking and for how long will you be in the area.


3. What condition can you accept. Can you make minor repairs, new tires & bearings etc before you head back north.


4. How NEW does it have to be. Scamps are from 0 to 40+ yeasr old


5. And what is your approximate budget? 10-15 y.o. 13' Scamps in ready-to-use condition usually sell for between $4500 and $7500 in the western states.


Almost forgot.... What will you be towing with?


As I am guessing that you are buying used, it's resaleability will increase if you have commonly wanted utilities like a furnace, hot water, sink & stove etc. But in a 13'er the front bath would be a space and weight hog.


And, as a tip, finding any used Scamp is a task, trying to find one with or without certain accessories would be much more difficult. Personally I think that the floor rot problem is oversold hereabouts. I have worked on more than 10 "Eggs" and have yet to come across anything more than 1 or 2 occasions of minor floor damage, usually from a leaky plumbing fitting.


Good luck in your search

Hi, and Welcome to the group.
You may not have noticed, but this site is primarily made up of owners and enthusiasts of "Molded Fiberglass" travel trailers, most in the under 19 foot range. While there is some commonality, you may get better responses to your questions in our sister group IRV2.com
