Probable ? LOL.. but arn't these common problems with Scamp Campers??

• Has had emissions leak and not passed inspection. Needs inspection/registration.
• Rear window regulators need to be replaced.
• Has slow battery drain.
• CV joints.
• Seat-belt warning light on.
• Air bag warning light on (Never deployed). show cdhtact info
• Slight oil leak. Not a functional issue but will stain driveway over time.


If we posted every obvious scam ad this would be a very busy forum.

People tend to freak out when they see their first scam listing. By the time you’ve seen your hundredth, you’ll just flag it and move on.

Posting links encourages more people to take a peek, which increases page view counts and feeds the monster.

I agree w/Alex.... the air bags would be great... and I know that having seat belts was an option for a limited number of years
Wow ... wouldn’t ya think scammers ( not scampers) would be just a bit smarter in their postings
Guess it proves a fool is born every minute

And by the time you have seen a thousand you don't even flag them. Its like putting your finger in a crack in the Hoover dam. Besides, I heard (but cant confirm) that Craigslist ignores flags from any but the area where the ad is listed. And of course it takes multiple flags to delete the ad.
