here is the list... I did not look at it as thoroughly as I could have because after two seconds we (my seven year old and I) had already decided that 5k was too much. Most of it is cosmetic but for $5K I would have liked to have seen it a bit cleaner. I did not look underneath so I don't know if the trailer bed was rusted and I did not look inside of the storage beneath the seat cushions to see if the fiberglass was intact. Pretty sure it's ok though. The owners are very nice and will take/send photos of whatever part of the trailer you'd like to see. So I will start with the good:
- Added AC/Heater unit which was on cold and worked perfectly
- New electrical
thingy where all the wires come together
- Two batteries
- Working lights
inside and out
- Fiberglass structure was in excellent condition
worked and was good (but NOT new)
- Owners are very nice and accommodating people and I felt they were very trustworthy
- Standard 7 way RV plug
- Original awning
- Hand pump water faucet replaced with regular rv water faucet (so no more pumping)
- No mildew smell
- two burner stove works perfectly
- Window seals were cracked (and that is a biggie for me)
- Center seal outside of the trailer that covers the two halves of the fiber glass is old and dried up
- No space to store anything underneath the sink. It is above the wheel plus all sorts of electrical
wires were in there.
- Lining in the storage cabinet above the original heater was gone and unfinished.
- Table wobbles
- Exterior needs to be waxed
- Definitely has an 30 year old trailer vibe inside (not very clean)
- carpeted flooring is bit raggedy
- Carpet strip in the center all along the ceiling on the inside of the trailer is ok but not awesome. I wondered why it was there to begin with but maybe that is normal. I didn't ask.
- Replacement windows
, parts and accessories impossible to find.
- Original solar panel
not in operation. Although it is still there it is blocked by AC unit.
- Upholstery was ok but not comfy and I would have ripped it out and stared anew.
- Inside the cabinets above the stove are very rough, not lined. The fiberglass fibers show.
For the things I would have wanted to do on it right away (such as the windows) it would cost me $1,000 or more. Plus taxes and fees, another $400 or so. That would have made the trailer at least $6,300 and at that amount my husband and I decided we'd rather save our money for a new or newer model Scamp
I drove 3.5 hours to see it. The owners live about an hour from Sequoia National Park. So if you decide to get it, you can go to Sequoia right away
Just bring some cleaning supplies. Other than that it is camp ready.
