Hello Everyone,
I just bought a 2002 Scamp Deluxe 16 footer. It is in pretty great shape, just needs a bit of TLC to make her really shine. I will be looking around and learning what I can as well as looking for ideas of how to personalize it.

Welcome, you will find lots of ideas here, from the technical to glamping (glamour camping) but by far the Best way by far to personalize your camper is make memories in it that are all your own.

Welcome Chickie.

Oh boy, are we ever good at spending other peoples money here.

I've done pretty decent damage to my own pocket book too.

Cute, Jim :-) First thing is to beef up my truck as much as possible - have the electric brake controller, getting a transmission cooler today, and have suspension parts on order! Next will be adding LEDS and a solar panel!

Hmmmm... What do you have to "Beef Up" on your truck to tow a 16' Scamp?
Unless it has wear/age issues, adding parts to increase towing capacity isn't always a good idea. Basically, if the factory towing specs aren't sufficient, it's time to rethink things. But things like new tires, shocks etc. can be a good idea.
What are you towing with?

Bob, nothing was mentioned about increasing capacties by the OP, just add ons for safety. All pretty much normal for a truck not having a tow package on it.

We are taking her out this weekend and will have some good pics. What part of Pa are you from? I am originally from the Pittsburgh area.

Chickie, I am in the same boat. Just bought the brake controller and next is LED's. Are you from New Orleans? We will be going there for Carnival in January. Wish we could make it for Mardi Gras, but I will be to bust at work that week. Can you recommend a campground?

Yes, Camp Cruiser, I am from New Orleans...where riding and camping season never end. :-)

Let me check around for a camp ground in the area. Do you want to be in the mix, or maybe a 1/2 hour our from the center of things? We have a decent little park Bayou Signette, that is about a half hour from downtown and on a bayou. I will check around more.
