There actually is time for "learning". But there is not time to ponder the quality of one you see for sale
. Instead, it's time to study up on Scamp
13, and get the funds all lined up. By the time you find one, you will be a SME (subject matter expert). I'm not joking. Some people do their studying AFTER buying. And then are "surprised" by some of the well documented, common problems. You will see many of those postings here. Avoiding well documented potential issues is just being smart.
By doing the studying up front, you can avoid such mistakes, and when you see one, you won't have to ask, "hey what do you think about this one?" While one person is doing their research after they see the ad, someone else is buying the trailer. Kind of how it works!
I followed this method when I decided I wanted a vintage Trillium
(much more scarce than a Scamp 13). It took me almost a year, but I avoided disaster by reading the various threads detailing the potential problems in older Trilliums. Some real experts have taken the time to post some excellent information on their rebuilds, repairs, projects, and modifications; along with inspection guidance too. I passed on two Trilliums that had fatal flaws (which someone else bought a few days later in both cases). Don't be that person!
