Hi Gene & Gayle here
After 7 years of Teardropping exclusively we have decided to step up to the occasional use of a standy. We have purchased a 1979 13' Scamp
. It had been in storage for15 years and is in good condition. I do have to work on the 12-volt system, recaulk some windows
, replace some rivets and buttons- all the normal things that may be needed to be done on a 37-year-old Scamp
Was in Bakus this week replacing the axel and switching to 5 lug wheels. Now need a small step platform when entering trailer. I enjoyed taking the factory tour and all personnel I spoke to were exceptionally friendly. They did not hesitate to answer my many questions concerning my new/old purchase and Scamps in general. (was told the name of the man who might have installed the original axel)
I look forward to working on and,while not giving up the teardrop, enjoying a new experience of camping in a trailer that one can stand up in. I will be relying heavily on the expertise and kindness of all forum members on this site as I bring my Scamp
into the modern era.
