New scamp owner
 
I made the trek between snow storms and picked up a new 16' deluxe scamp. Real excited about getting to use it but this was not the week to think about it.
I'll need all yalls help and knowledge figuring out how to do this.
I'm on my own, sixty year old female and need your wisdom and advice.
Today, I just need to know how to shake off a monster out cold I caught out there.
So, currently bundled at home outside Asheville, NC and headed to somewhere in Florida when I stop coughing.
Any suggestions?
Is there anything you never leave home without?

Welcome to the forum and congratulations!
I don't know if we have any doctors here, but I would say hot tea with honey, chicken noodle soup, stay warm and keep hydrated by non-alcoholic means.
Pose specific questions and people will be right here to answer.

Never leave home without curiosity about new places.

My suggestion would be hitch it up and head for Florida immediately. High of 79 projected where I live tomorrow. It may not get rid of the cold but it will make you feel better. I would offer you our campsite (AKA Campsite #1 by those who know the joke) for a few days but I don't want to catch your cold!
Seriously, I don't know if you are familiar with Florida but if you PM me and tell me your interests, I might be able to suggest some locations and campgrounds/State Parks that may be appropriate for the activities you enjoy.

Supposedly an untreated cold lasts about a week. Treated it lasts 5 days. I haven't had a cold in many years but 27 1/2 years teaching sure built up my immune system. Definitely not suggesting you become a teacher with that goal in mind. Would definitely delay a lot of enjoyment of your new trailer.

Hi Bruce,

Congrats on your new Scamp 16' Deluxe! NICE! Florida sounds wonderful. I am sure you will enjoy the Asheville area later as well with warmer temperatures.

Get well soon!

Take care,

Dean

Congratulations, Ms Bruce! We also have a 16' deluxe, that we picked up from Scamp on Oct 15, 2014. It's the side dinette model, with head and shower forward - which one do you have? We got every optional cabinet we could, an extra light over the bed, a porch light, and an outside light over the tongue. We leave the main bed setup as a bed, and just use the side dinette for sitting/eating. We also got the Fiamma awning, which we love.

A couple recommendations: Install a fire extinguisher and a geriatric grab bar right inside the doorway. Sometimes it's a long way to the ground, and that bar has been really handy.

Another suggestion to have on board is a small hydraulic jack, and a wrench adequate to turn the lug nuts on the wheels (try it first!). Neither one of those are standard equipment (don't know why not!).

You're going to love it!

Virus infections are best treated with elderberry extract, doctors actually prescribe it outside the US. I can tell you how how to diagnose whether you have allergies, virus or bacterial respiratory infection. It's terribly gross= 40 years as a nurse will make you gross. If your mucus is clear,it's allergies. White- and thick, virus Colored any color it's bacterial. For bacterial infections you need a dr visit to prescribe the appropriate antibiotic. Feel better.

These are some options to have assuming you will do at least some of you own cooking.

The Colemen grill stove and oven don't take up much room. The camp oven folds up flat for storage and fits on the grill stove for use. The Cobb grill is quite compact also and has many accessories for many types of cooking. You'll likely find you will want to do most of your cooking outside.
