SOLD - 1988 Scamp 19' 5th wheel travel trailer - $13,000 - Chestertown, MD

TL;DR -- significantly renovated 1988 Scamp Deluxe 19’ fifth wheel camper for $13,500, located in Chestertown, MD. Lots of mods. See list and pictures. Axle, wheels/tires, battery, A/C, water heater, refrigerator, fan, freshwater system, shower system, toilet, cabinetry, sink, kitchen area, and solar are all new as of 2018-2020. Some subsystems could use attention (exterior, belly band, front plexiglass) so this is better for someone handy but you’re getting a camper with a significant number of subsystems in like-new condition.

New subsystems directly from Scamp -- front door (2018), gravel shield (2018), gelcoat (2019-2020), Lippert 32 degree down trailing arm axle with 3" rise (2018)

The Scamp is the deluxe version, meaning heavier wood components versus the fiberglass on the standard model. Camper has new (2018) 3/4" epoxied floors in the dinette, kitchenette, and bathroom but still has original floors in the main walkway area, steps, and bedroom. Exterior has been refreshed with Scamp gelcoat on the top half and battleship gray marine topside paint on the bottom half. Some light spots on the new gelcoat show through to the original gelcoat (yellower color) due to oversanding more lightly coated areas.

Systems replaced/installed:
- Karrier ST205/75R14 radial trailer tires w/ 14" white wheel, 5 on 4-1/2, load range D, plus spare (2018)
- Barker 20 gallon freshwater tank (2018)
- Shurflo freshwater pump and accumulator tank (2018)
- Dometic Duo Therm Brisk Air 2 air conditioner (2018)
- Thule Hideaway 10’ awning (2018) and brackets (replaced 2020)
- Atwood GC6AA-10E gas/electric water heater and AT91522 access door (2018)
- Maxxair Maxxfan Deluxe 5100K (2018)
- Norcold N3150 5.3 cubic foot refrigerator (2018)
- IKEA cabinetry, countertops, sink basin (kitchenette, sink area) (2018)
- Marshall Excelsior MEGR-253 dual tank propane regulator (2018)
- 2x Flame King 30 gallon propane cylinders (2018)
- Greystone 24" range hood and Ventline hood vent (2018)
- First Alert smoke detector and MTI CO monitor (2018)
- Renogy Deep Cycle Pure Gel 12V 200Ah battery (2018)
- 9” gel foam mattress (2018)
- Olympian Wave 3 catalytic heater & cover (2018)
- Renogy 160W flexible solar panel (2019)
- Renogy Rover-Li MPPT 30A solar charge controller (2019)
- Renogy Rover Bluetooth adapter (2019)
- Insulated vinyl walls in bathroom (2020)
- Camco 41541 5.3 gallon travel toilet (2020)
- Seaflo 3gpm 12V shower drain pump (2020)
- New light fixtures, AC/DC/USB outlets, all new plumbing (shower equipment, faucets, fresh/gray hoses, etc.), new gas lines, etc. (2018-2020)

Other improvements -- converted original stairs into storage, converted dinette to U-shape with storage at the back, propane tap for a portable stove use in the kitchenette (can be converted to a countertop unit by the new owner), replaced carpet with cork flooring, replaced flooring in bedroom with new carpet/insulation/vapor barrier, added heavy duty stainless steel door latch, and miscellaneous other features.

Some original portions of the camper have been pulled or modified from what you might find on a standard Scamp -- for instance, we removed the black water tank in favor of cassette/composting options; there’s no stovetop (we used our travel grill from the tapped line under the hood vent when cooking inside); rear seats were regular cushions rather than the fold-out cushions that can convert the dinette to a bed (these can be purchased from Scamp); and the front plexiglass window under the gravel shield is original and will need a replacement longer term but is heavily sealed. The Olympian catalytic heater replaces the standard furnace in older Scamps, which was removed to allow for more storage space and lower noise; the original vents for this furnace are still present but are covered. We’ve chased down leaks in various points on this camper from where it started (specifically the front plexiglass, windows, and belly band) but it might benefit at least from resealing the belly band interior in the areas that are currently caulked over and sealed.

Other things included with sale: stabilizing bars that go behind the rear bumper, fresh and grey hoses, leveling blocks, safety chains, 7-pin pigtail electrical cable. A custom hitch with Reese legs and head support, a Scamp top plate, and 2” ball are included with the sale of the camper.

Camper is located in Chestertown, MD and can be shown most weekends. E-mail/message for viewings. Anyone coming to see the camper must bring a mask and follow standard social distancing guidelines.
