Hi I'm new here and am wondering how to post my camper for sale. I have a rare 1973 Hitch Hut Play Pac fiberglass camper. It is a restoration project I took on and am not able to finish. I am not sure what it is worth. Please help.

Hi, and welcome.

I posted a reply to your other post, as to how to post an ad.
http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...tml#post487324

If you do a search of the web https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Hi...Pac&gws_rd=ssl, as well as here, you will find reference to a few others that went for sale. Lots of considerations, like condition, location, and time of year will factor into what price you will get.

You could take a look at Fiberglass-RV-4sale.com to look at current listings and there is also a section of past listings to get a feel for what it is worth.

Hello Everyone,
I just bought a 2002 Scamp Deluxe 16 footer. It is in pretty great shape, just needs a bit of TLC to make her really shine. I will be looking around and learning what I can as well as looking for ideas of how to personalize it.

Welcome, you will find lots of ideas here, from the technical to glamping (glamour camping) but by far the Best way by far to personalize your camper is make memories in it that are all your own.

Welcome Chickie.

Oh boy, are we ever good at spending other peoples money here.

I've done pretty decent damage to my own pocket book too.

Cute, Jim :-) First thing is to beef up my truck as much as possible - have the electric brake controller, getting a transmission cooler today, and have suspension parts on order! Next will be adding LEDS and a solar panel!

Hmmmm... What do you have to "Beef Up" on your truck to tow a 16' Scamp?
Unless it has wear/age issues, adding parts to increase towing capacity isn't always a good idea. Basically, if the factory towing specs aren't sufficient, it's time to rethink things. But things like new tires, shocks etc. can be a good idea.
What are you towing with?

Bob, nothing was mentioned about increasing capacties by the OP, just add ons for safety. All pretty much normal for a truck not having a tow package on it.

We are taking her out this weekend and will have some good pics. What part of Pa are you from? I am originally from the Pittsburgh area.

Chickie, I am in the same boat. Just bought the brake controller and next is LED's. Are you from New Orleans? We will be going there for Carnival in January. Wish we could make it for Mardi Gras, but I will be to bust at work that week. Can you recommend a campground?

Yes, Camp Cruiser, I am from New Orleans...where riding and camping season never end. :-)

Let me check around for a camp ground in the area. Do you want to be in the mix, or maybe a 1/2 hour our from the center of things? We have a decent little park Bayou Signette, that is about a half hour from downtown and on a bayou. I will check around more.

After a quick look, I have two I would recommend if you just want to be close to the city:
New Orleans West KOA | Camping in Louisiana | KOA Campgrounds
This one is in River Ridge, a nice, safe small city that is pretty close to downtown.

Pontchartrain Landing - A Secure New Orleans Waterfront RV Park and Campground
This one is in New Orleans Easy, right on the water, near Lake Pontchatrain. We go to hang out here in warm weather to eat, drink and be merry. It is under new management, so not sure how it is now, but they used to have a really good restaurant there.

If you do not mind driving across the Miss. River to get downtown, this is my favorite, Bayou Signette. Get a real taste of what the area is like.Bayou Segnette State Park | Louisiana Office of State Parks

Thanks Chickie. Safe is good and getting a feel for the area is better. We don't mind crossing the Mississippi at all. We appreciate the info.
