Today at 0640 in Vancouver, WA, Southbound on I-5 stuck in the pre-rushhour slowdown just north of the I-5 Bridge: A late-model Bigfoot, probably a 17.5', behind a fullsize red pickup.

That's a little vague, but I was merginng northbound, dodging an idiot, and spotting the egg across 6 lanes of traffic. At the time I was pretty impressed with myself.

Did you have your new 5th Wheel Scamp in Tucson on Sunday, March 30th on Eastbound Broadway at Harrison Road. You were driving a 4-door white pickup, and I really admired the shiny finish on your fiver.

Especially since I was on my way to work on mine, and boy, does it need spiffing up after setting for a while.

Hope you enjoyed your desert visit.

We just returned from a trip through the midwest from IL to TX and then TN. On the way down to TX we saw 2 fivers. Then while parked at the KOA in West, TX (just north of Waco) we saw 2 more fivers drive by on northbound I-35. Had a lovely visit with a Casita owner while at the KOA there and they toured our 5er. On the way to TN from TX we sighted yet another 5er on the interstate.

Then while visiting the Chattanooga area we saw 3 more Scamps and Casitas. These were seen while taking in the sights through our binoculars and no vehicles were with the trailers. We also gave 3 more tours of the 5er while in Chattanooga. Wish we had been able to identify vehicles but all sightings were so brief we never could tell what kind or color of vehicle was pulling the fivers. But what great fun to see so many of us out there.

1970 Boler from Ontario parked near us at a KOA in Savannah, Georgia. Two nice folks we met up with, checked out each others renovations, and agreed that fiberglass was great. They didn't know about fiberglass rv, so we clued them in. I hope to see them in the forums soon.

Spotted a Casita in CA yesterday, doesn't happen to me very often. I beeped and waved, but I think they thought I was harassing them. Newer 17 behind a white Tundra with a topper and Nevada plates going south on 49 between Jackson and Angels Camp. I think they were probably trying to escape the rain.

We saw a 13' Scamp (looked like an older model) towed by a small-ish pick up truck on Sunday, April 16, heading up Camino del Rio in Durango, CO--it was very exciting, because other than our little guy, this was the first time we have seen one out in the wild!

As I was towing my Fiber Stream west on I-10, east of Tucson, AZ, someone merged right behind me headed west also, towing a 16' Scamp. Then we fell in behind a Military convoy going 50 mph. I passed them doing 55 mph, but you stayed behing them.

I attended the Hosstraders Hamfest at the Hopkinton fairgrounds in NH on Friday and Saturday. I saw a 13' Scamp and a 16' Scamp there - were they board members?

I've been out and about and found some travelors.
May 5th I spotted a 17' Casita east bound on I40 in Arkansas at MM 238 at about 1PM.
May 6th I hit a small jackpot. I snuck up on Gary (said he is on the forum), wife, and 2 fur kids on their way home with their new 16' at the east bound rest area on I20 at mm 608 in Texas. As I was pulling out of the rest area there was a 16' in hte west bound rest area. Latter in the day I spotted a West bound 17' Casita on I20 at mm 73 in Louisiana.

Hi Everyone - it is wonderful to have (more) consistent access to the 'net & therefore, this great Forum!

May 11th - Interstate 80 east of Reno, NV (around Patrick) - nice shiny Casita w/dark green (I think) tug headed EB. Hope you're having a good trip!

Had a pretty good list of sightings during our winter travels in the Southwest, but when unpacking began, it got lost in the mountain of 'stuff' disgorged from our 10 ft. house!

Hope Spring has sprung wherever you are, and wish everyone safe travels & wonderful memories. Looking forward to our trip to Bullard's Beach in July!

Regards, L 'n D

My first Scamp! (in real life, not just photos)

At an Edmonton-area Safeway supermarket on May 11: a Scamp 13'; behind a Honda Element with a Thule roof box and a New York license plate. With the roof box, the tug is taller than the trailer!

I chatted briefly with the owner, who bought the trailer new recently and had already been from New York, through the south via Texas, up the west coast to British Columbia, deep into the BC interior (Prince George), and across the Yellowhead highway into Alberta.

Scamps are relatively rare around here, and probably in Canada in general. On the other hand, while there are probably dozens of 13' Bolers and Trilliums in the Edmonton area, the Scamp owner had never seen one.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
