To Scamp or not to Scamp

I have been romanticizing the idea of taking a small camper, particularly a 13′ Scamp, across country to view the USA. On Sunday I almost pulled the trigger on an eBay auction for this little beauty.


From my research, it seems that Scamp campers have a loyal following and hold their value fairly well. This 36-year old little guy had a starting bid of $5,000, and a buy it now price of $5,500.

I can often be a bit impulsive, so I decided to let the boyfriend be the voice of reason before I pulled the trigger. After all, I don’t even have a car/truck/SUV. So… with 10 minutes left in the auction, I was reminded this camper did not include a shower. Could I survive without an inside shower? (I was considering the install of an outside shower.)

In the end, I decided to hold off on the purchase. I don’t want to put the cart before the horse… literally.
