Welcome, Juan!

What I love about my Scamp is the timeless, vintage style without the time-consuming vintage headaches!

Happy egg-hunting!

Juan, a lot of us were tent campers before we got our first trailer. Us, as well. Trailering is more comfortable than tent camping. I've had people slap my trailer and say, "Why, it's just a hard-sided tent!" Nonsense. It's not JUST a hard-sided tent. It's rainproof, doesn't need assembling at every stop, will stop a snake, a non-rabid bear, and wind.

It has a heater, a huge water jug, blankets, dedicated beds/seating, storage that doesn't fill the car...it won't blow away in anything less than a real storm. It provides an eating area, cooking (electric/microwave), and already has a porta-potty in it and privacy to use it.

Also it's decorated inside, and several people can sit comfortably (more or less) and visit in it without having to use camp chairs or squat on the ground. It even has mosquito screen with one over the door as well. We can keep our laundry in it, and dry our wash in it if necessary.

It's not JUST a hard-sided tent! For another thing, it's a lot harder to BACK UP than a tent...but when we get where we're going, it's ready for us in a pinch without any set-up at all if it has to be so. And we don't have to clear the ground before we can park, either.

It's harder to haul down the road, but it leaves us wiggle room in our tow vehicle, unlike a tenting situation where your car/truck is filled with your camping equipment. It has a lock on the door and windows that help keep out the elements.

You have an adventure in front of you--good luck and happy egg hunting!

BEST

What Kai said.
Over time, my retirement planning went from backpacking the AT and North Country trails, to a motorcycle camper, to a teardrop camper. I realized my health wouldn't allow each prior. I recalled seeing Scamps in the camping areas occasionally as I would be heading to the back country with a backpack. I googled SCAMP and this was the first hit.

I LUV LUV LUV my LilSnoozy. Heading north to DC next month for my 50th high school anniversary.
I lurked for about 10 years on the RVTravel,com forum. You'll find the trailer of your dreams here.
