I keep coming back to the full fiberglass bottom together with the Boler-derived shape. Besides Casita, what other Boler clones have a full fiberglass underside?

I have seen that trolley roof before. It is unique in that it extends all the way to the back. I am sure there was another one like this, also looking for an identification. That one had clearance lights on the extended trolley roof though.

I remember that one David... I searched but couldn't find it. Unik?? If so this one is aptly named, as it's unique!

Even if you find the Mfg. you still don't have a title. You can treat it as a homebuilt kit travel trailer. I would have some "what if" conversations with the officials involved before starting the process. The way I read it you can have a shopbuilt or homebuilt travel trailer in TX. Just so the trailer is built by you or to your specifications. Once you start modifying the shell it is being built to your specifications. You can also research how home built teardrop trailers are registered in TX.

Even if you call it a Scamp or whatever Law Enforcement will still have to verify the Vin to ensure it hasn't been reported stolen before getting tags.

You're right, Donna. That's not the one I am remembering. It had the extended trolley roof, and, as I recall, some kind of oversized window retrofitted into the back. You called it that time, as I recall (as usual).

You might phone or email this company in Maine and explain your problem. If it's older than 15 years, Maine does not issue a title but you will get a registration and license plates. They no longer issue home built titles so you may need to name the trailer something.

Looking at the condition of the front section of the frame I would be surprised if it was the original - perhaps the reason for the VIN number looking very much like a DIY job. Perhaps the front section of the frame has been replaced as it has been on many trailers of its age. Or did the PO take wire brush to it or sand it down and repaint it recently....

Would be interesting to see a photo of the actual tongue to see what type/age of couple it has on it.

Thanking everyone for all the input. I have also posted on a different site where I have been told scamp uses/used tube iron for frame, not channel(?) and this is channel. There have been questions about the floor, it is fiberglass. I have looked in the closet and not numbers or stickers.

Some seem to think it looks, like older Casita. I have been looking at those and on the older ones I have seen, rear of the wheel on 13 footers the bottom does not go down as far as in front of the wheel, like raised to not drag....this is not the case on this one just as close to the ground in front and behind the wheel, and closer to the ground by 3 or 4 inches through the doorway. I have sent an email to Casita just in case, but have not heard anything from the yet.

I am still confused about the Vin and Scamp camper vin history (E with 3-5 digits according to some chats) but Scamp told me all their numbers start with 1-S7, that they have never used that kind of numbering (again, going from the angle of just getting the frame or bottom half only identified). The person I emailed at Scamp also thought it may be a Burro (but they have vertical seam, not belly band) or a Casita.

Many people have also said to register as homemade, but the homemade registrations in TX you have to show a receipt for axle, say you are the maker or who did it for you and it only applies to trailer that will not hold people, travel trailers fall into a different category. Guess they have really cracked down.

I think I'm past the research stage and may just have to resign myself to just use temporary tags and use it only once or twice year.

I have at really enjoyed reading everyones replies and banter. Thank you.

It's a WISP!

Scamp started using the standarized 17 digit VIN some time in 1982. Their 17 digit VIN's start with 1S7. Prior to the 17 digit VIN their serial numbers started with 1E.

I know REALLY?

That shows how important good pictures are to help identify a particular trailer. The picture on the front page, cut off the back portion (in profile) and the Wisp has a definite flat back end. That would immediately discount round eggs like Boler, Scamp and Casita.

Whew. Now we hope Teresa has success in getting the details through local DMV.

Great, I now know its a WISP, I have looked at all posts on the site of WISPS thanks to ya'lls old forums and links. Thanks to that info I have emailed or direct messaged anyone who posted as owners to see if they had a s/n vin on theirs and their year and place of manufacture since these are all questions on the registration form.

Amazing to see other ones---I have probably looked at a thousand pictures over the past 2 weeks and NONE of them were a WISP!! (until now, thanks!) woo hoo
