Talking Really really small Scamps

"Thousands of Scamp Owners have logged millions of miles in the ever-popular Scamp 13" If you like the idea of a small, lightweight trailer without the inconvenient setup, then our Scamp 13" is the perfect trailer for you."

Those Scamp people really know how to make small trailers.

Their models are 13" long with 6" headroom, according to the quote from the link above.

Funny, they look bigger in the photos.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

FYI, From the Acorn Facebook page.

"In 1978 a company named Eveland's Inc. was in the middle of a lawsuit for the rights to the name of Scamp. During half of 78' and half of 79 the company changed the name to Acorn. The company won the lawsuit and the following year continued the production of these lightweight fiberglass trailers under the original name of Scamp.

In 2006 the Eveland's had a fire and lost the whole factory including any informal records of the Acorn Trailers. The founder and the current owner estimate that only a couple hundred of the Acorn Trailers were built! If you own one of the few on the road today then you are lucky to have a rare Acorn/Scamp!"

Maiden Voyage of the Acorn

Well, we got the Acorn, because we could pull it with our 10 year old Subaru Forrester . . . only after reading up on towing, we got nervous about it maybe being too much for the Subaru ("the Blueberry") to handle . . . so we went out and bought a truck - 2011 V6 Ford Ranger ("Roger") with tow package already installed . . . then we got the tow ball thingee with the drop hitch thingee, which go into the hole in the tow thingee on the truck and everything worked out fine. Today we took our little Acorn out for her maiden voyage (with us) . . . and it was GREAT! We did 55 mph . . . hills . . . rough and winding roads . . . Now we have to finish a couple of things and a camping we will go. I'm giddy with excitement

Congratulations and have a great time with it. You're in a great area for camping, too. I have a sister who lives 20 minutes north of Marinette, so I get up that way sometimes. It's pretty country.

I think a number of us thoroughly understand "giddy with excitement."
