ALCAN HWY SIGHTS

Saw Bigfoot 17 south bound towards Ft. St. John and what looked like a Triple E south bound near Moocha River. The Triple E type was on a flat bed trailer but the fiberglass was molded down to the trailer bed and over the trailer wheels. There did not appear to be an axle directly under the trailer body.
There is a rig titled "Northern Lite" here in Whitehorse that looks like a cross between a Trillium and a Casita. I have never seen anything like these two rigs in all my travels.

Also saw what looked like an abandoned Bigfoot at a derelict property near the continental divide. I will stop next week when I am south bound and check it out.

Like a lot of fiberglass owners we are always on the lookout for fiberglass trailers. Whenever we start out in the morning I make a prediction for the day. Like 2 Scamps and a Casita today. I have never been right. Close but not right on. Our personal best day occurred on the weekend before Labor Day as we traveled across South Dakota from the Badlands to the Iowa border. We saw 5 Scamps, 2 Escapes, a Casita, a boler and one I could not ID. We figured it was the last full week before school started and both locals and long distance travelers were out in force. They were all westbound on I-90. Next best day was 5.

On the train headed to Denver. Spotted a 15' Scamp in campground on CO river just upstream from Glenwood Springs, CO. Then saw a 13' Scamp in an RV storage lot as we neared Denver.

Where are the scamps?

My wife and I are just completing a NE US tour starting in Iowa and going thru New York City to Maine and across Canada and back to Iowa. Only saw 1 Casita and 2 Tag trailers in two weeks. Where are all of the eggs?

Hidden Eggs

Not to be at all critical and not knowing your route, if you are not running interstates or divided highway routes you donít see many eggs. We drive from Cedar Rapids to Fort Wayne on I-80 and US 30 about 6 to 8
Times a year. We average 2 fiberglass trailer sittings in 800 miles. On state highways a whole lot less. Friday after about 3 pm, Saturday morning before noon, Sunday mid afternoon are times we see most fiberglass. Weekdays in any month besides May thru Labor Day are a tough pumper chance as we used to say in the Forest Service.
Last weekend we saw a Trillium going out between Joliet and Chicago and a
Casita about mid Illinois coming back. Good luck in your camping and looking for
Fiberglass.

Scamps !

Two days ago I passed an older Scamp in Merced CA as I headed back to Sonora. As we pulled up to a red light I got to talk to ‘ Janet ‘ for a moment. I pulled into a Taco Bell as she went on. (The only place I can get gas for $2.49).
Later I caught up with her when she pulled off. I wanted to make sure all was well.We talked about her Scamp, I showed her a few hints on her door that sometimes comes open. I told her DO NOT take the Scamp into Yosemite, she said traffic did not bother her. I told her she might not even get into the gate and the ‘park ‘would be a parking lot ! She had been told about the ‘bad’ roads. I said roads were good, but parking and traffic were horrible, she should leave the Scamp at the 1000 Trails in Groveland, drive in and use the free shuttles. I forgot to mention the YART buses from Groveland and Sonora. I hope it helped her a bit.

Just after crossing border at Sault Ste Marie we spotted a scamp 16 and scamp 13 headed north for the bridge. Coming South thru Traverse City to Chicago and back to Iowa on I-80 no others were spotted.

It seemed to me that any of the Scamps we spotted all stayed on interstate highway. All the way from Bar Harbor Me thru New Hampshire and Vermont on US Highways no eggs were spotted.

Close to home

Had to make a morning run to the supermarket yesterday. Parked in the lot was a new scamp towed by a Subaru. Owner was in the TV so I had to talk to her. We had a nice conversation. She only lived about a mile away. Her description ď my house backs up to the parkĒ. In the afternoon my brother came over to the house and I described the camper to him. I must not get out enough as he knew the camper, the house, street it was on, and the tow. He lives on the other side of this park. Heís a retired letter carrier and as a sub when he started out carried every route, at one time or another, in our home town of 120,000 He notices everything, Iím oblivious most of the time.

While driving through Devils Lake, ND today I spotted a 13' Casita pulling in to the Walmart on the East side of town. I went over to them in the parking lot to say hi. Turns out it was a unit I use to own. It is the first one I had gotten from military surplus over 5 years ago. Same people had it. I told them about this forum.

After that I continued East on US2 toward Grand Forks, ND. Not 10 miles East a newer Scamp went by in the West bound lane. A "twofer" today!

My extensive network of spotter just notified me of an Escape 5th Wheel named Happy Max and a Scamp close together on
I 380 south of Cedar Rapids, Northbound. Eacape was pulled by a Nissan truck.

Flew into Vancouver BC this past Saturday. Few hours later, saw a Boler being towed around the city.
Sunday, wife and I went with her brother's family along the coast toward Squamish, saw a Boler and I think two Trillium trailers.

Too bad they where going the opposite direction from where I was going. Would have liked to get a closer look.

Seeing 4 campers in a day and a half was fun. I think wife is already tired of me pointing them out.

Camped at Emmigrant Lake near Ashland, there's a Casita across from us, and they are heading to Bullards Beach tomorrow, as are we. ��

100F here and likely lower 60s on the coast.

Island Highway

Heading South to Victoria spotted a 15 ft. Escape, a Trillium and a Boler all going North.


On return 3 hour trip North to Comox Valley, spotted 2 Trilliums, a Boler, the same Escape, I'm sure, and an unidentifiable by me. It had a very small square window off to one side on the back, and the whole trailer looked quite narrow, like a Burro, but no vertical centre seam???


So happy to see these on the highway that I wanted to wave, but they were too far away on the other 2 lanes of traffic. On my return about half way back, I dropped down to the coastal highway where the driving is slower, but didn't see one of 'our' types of trailers. The, "Half the size, Twice the fun." types that were outnumbered by the stickie behemoths.
