Decided to post up our 1998 Scamp 13’. We just went camping in it 3 weeks ago with friends, The first photo is from the end of March 2022, our trailer for Sale is the ONE ON THE RIGHT. It’s a blast, we’ve enjoyed this little gem and the attention it gets.
The tires are new, installed in 2020 with less than 700 miles in them, spare tire new less than a month ago. New interstate group 24 battery installed last year I believe. Everything works, clean in and out. We purchased this from family a few years ago. They had it for a looong time, always stored under a carport.
The floor is in great condition, we had a waterproof-scratch proof floor installed in it last year. There is a dinette at the back that converts into a bed for two. Water storage for sink under passenger side of dinette, additional storage on driver side. Speaking of storage there is a large closet on the passenger side in front of the dinette and also a lot more storage towards the front in two separate cabinets. Has a working toilet, for some folks that’s very important but does not have a shower.
All the windows work properly with screens, has a screen door, the roof vent works perfect although it does stick a little when first opening. The refrigerator works, the cooktop works, all the lights work, all the cabinet doors latch shut, there is nothing wrong with it. It has been in the high Desert area for at least the past 15 years. Frame is perfect and solid, no rust, it has never leaked, that’s one of the benefits about having a fiberglass trailer right, its the fact that they don’t leak, in turn the floor is perfect, hard as a rock. We put the hardwood floor in to make it easier to clean, we just take a small blower with us while camping and blow out any dust that gets in, it’s a lot easier to keep it perfectly clean than before when there was carpeting.
Can easily be towed with a 4 cylinder car or truck. It weighs around 1300 lbs, our friends have one too and they tow theirs with a little suv.
The only negative I can speak of is the Scamp decal on the passenger side is peeling a little bit on the edges(see last photo), it was stored it in a carport with that side facing south towards the sun. A couple years ago I purchased a new vinyl decal from Scamp but haven’t gotten around to putting it on. I’ll have to look for it but if I can find it I’ll include it in the sale.
We’re kind of weird when it comes to the way we use the scamp, we don’t like putting water in the onboard storage tank, i’ve read countless stories on the forms where leak has occurred in the system and weather floor so we prefer to take a 5 gallon water cube to wash with that, additionally we take bottled water everywhere we go and don’t have the need to have onboard water although it works fine and the pump works good just don’t use it. Also we have never used the toilet, neither did our extended family we purchased it from. We camp where there are bathrooms and didn’t want to deal with cleaning out a black tank but it’s there if needed.
We were thinking about taking it with us this summer to visit our son up north and doing some exploring. All our trips have been local overnighters.
We were not ever planning on selling it, we named it “Half Pint” and enjoy being part of the fiberglass trailer community but I just had my taxes done and found out I owe a considerable amount this year, it was my error so Only selling it to pay off that debt. We will get another one next year, I just don’t like debt and paying unnecessary interest on debt. I will also be posting up our jeep and letting go which everyone sells first.
Anyways I probably written enough. The trailer requires a 1-7/8 ball and a round 7pin electrical adapter, the trailer lights work as they should but at least one of the side markers bulbs are burnt out.
The price is Firm!
