One owner for 45 years... wow! If itís been stored outside and sitting a while, Iíd expect some repairs are needed to bring it up to camp-ready condition. After a thorough clean-up, assess what needs to be done, starting from the bottom up. Lots of good help here as you work through it.

Congratulations, and welcome to the Scamp family!

Thank you. I loaded pics on my page but I have not figured out how to post them. Yes it does have outside issues and lots of them. I am not sure where it was stored as they passed away and the son sold it

Scamp Purchase

I bought a 1999 Scamp 16 which had not been properly winterized. The hot water tank had ruptured and the shower pump needed to be replaced.

Mine does not have any water except the sink. Not sure if the tank works or not but I think this thing very cheap so I can replace it if needed

So probably just a fresh water tank, water pump and grey water tank. Hopefully all is in order.
