1978 ScampIt’s hasn’t been that long since we’ve been back home following out trip around the world, but we’ve gotten the summer travel bug.  So we’ve decided it’s time to start our next adventure and explore the great American Southwest.  Concentrating on the Four Corner States, we’re planning on hitting Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico over the next few months.  We’re looking forward to seeing some of the U.S.’s best national parks like Zion, Bryce, Arches and the Grand Canyon.

We were planning on tent camping until Christine found these great little Scamp travel trailers while browsing eBay.  Neither of us had ever seen one of these before, but aparently they were quite popular in the 70s.  Check out the Fiberglass RV website to see some cool pics of all kinds of small vintage RVs.  Only 13′ long and made out of fiberglass, they weigh just over 1000 pounds and are very easy to tow.  We found a guy in Illinois who renovates these little guys and are now the proud owners of a vintage 1978 Scamp travel trailer.  Fitted with a small stove, fridge and AC, we won’t exactly be roughing it, but we’re looking forward to being self contained as we go back on the road.

    Very cool. I’ve always wanted to do a coast to coast drive, or see all 32 NFL teams in one season.

    I definitely like the trailer as opposed to the motorhome. They seem so big and clunky.

    Can you tow it with a car? Or do you need a truck?

    It’s pretty light. Around 1400 pounds. You can even tow it with a Corolla. We have a small Freelander and we don’t even notice it’s there.

    Looking nice and attractive, and sturdy too. Is there bigger model available? Because, i think this one will be sufficient for a company ot two. but for a family of 5 - 6 i think we need a bigger.
