hello all. been lurking on this forum for a month or so i figured it was time to register.
the wife & i moved to the sticks of northern Mi. from the burbs of SE Mi. a couple years ago.
the wife had been on the lookout for a fiberglass
RV for a few years when 1 morning i ran across an ad for a Scamp
16' priced at $1500. we couldnt believe the price and figured there was some thing(s) wrong with it. im a carpenter, so fixing things like campers doesnt discourage me.
anywho, after a few emails, pictures, and phone conversations, i was on the 120 to look at the camper. seller stated that he would go no lower than $1000....which really had us excited.
it was disclosed from the start that the bathroom window leaked(which damaged the "paneling" in the wet closet) and i could also see the roof vent cover was cracked. other than that nothing major was wrong. power was hooked up and every knob i turned or switch i flicked worked. i couldnt believe it !
as of now the window is fixed, damaged bathroom wall replaced with a sheet of FRP, new vent cover installed, and we purchased a bunch of new rivet washers & caps. all appliances work. new paint
on bumper & tongue coming soon.
if we see any of ya'll out there on the trail, we'll be sure to share a fire, beer, & a shot of limoncello.
