Question

Last Wednesday afternoon (05-27-09) in the parking lot of the VA Medical Center in La Jolla, Calif:
A 13' Scamp with front Bath towed by a silver VW new Beetle; both had Florida plates.
The Scamp had a solar panel on the back of the roof that was raised at an angle like an air deflector or a wing!

Sunday, May 31 - U-Haul (or Burro?) towed by a nice red SUV (Forerunner?) headed east on Interstate 80 just outside of Reno, NV. Later that afternoon, we spotted our first-ever Bigfoot Motorhome, exited eastbound (I-80) and turned north into Sparks, NV.
Anyone from this forum? L 'n D

Just spotted a 13 Scamp pulled by a reddish/maroon tug heading out of Sonora, Ca on Stockton, Rd.

If you noticed a person waving feverishly out of a small Mercedes, that was me as I sat waiting to turn left in front of you.

About 12:30 PM, Saturday, June 6, at Bayview (Whidbey Island) Washington: a U-Haul. I didn't notice the tug.

And while I am at it, even though these are not fiberglass, there was an Eriba Puck at the VW Fest in Effingham too, pulled by a splitty pickup.

They have a fiberglass pop top.

Yesterday, in beautiful overgarrd az, a Casita, older, tugged by a toyota suv with bikes, headed west..at about 8:15 am.

OK, I knew who it was.. it was Karen and John from here headed home to San Diego from Fool Hollow lake.

I also saw a red pick up towing another casita headed east on hiway 260 in Pinetop/Lakeside AZ a couple hours later.

Today, Sunday June 7, talked to owner of a 13' (?) Scamp at Jalama Beach County Park, Santa Barbara County, Cali. He stopped by to ask about ours. I told him about this group. Not sure he's a web addict like some of us (ahem!) might be...

Sunday, June 7 - Interstate 80 just east of MM32 - spotted a Scamp 13 (w/gravel guard) pulled by a green TV - you were eastbound amid a 'herd' of Airstreams in various sizes. Was there an Airstream rally somewhere? L 'n D

Two sightings, both Scamps, both headed South on SR20 on Whidbey near Coupeville yesterday June 9 about noon. The 13' had a red SUV towing it; the other I think was a 16' but can't be sure.

Picked this one up in cariboo, and its in really good shape.
Going to travel with it across BC and Alberta for the next 2 weeks.
Please excuse the tarp on the jeep, didn't have time to put the soft top on before it started raining.
