Backus, Minnesota based Scamp Trailers recently launched an updated website to showcase their 13, 16, and 19 foot fiberglass travel trailers. The site is much more user friendly and makes searching floor plans and options much easier than the previous version of their website.
One thing that jumped out at me was the impressive online Scamp parts store. Many of the parts pertain only to Scamps, but there are several items that fit many other trailers, at competitive prices. Notable is the 3500 lbs torsion axle with electric brakes which goes for $460.
You can also download a fine 9 page pdf catalog: http://www.scamptrailers.com/images/pdfs/Scamp2013_Catalog.pdf There’s also a nice array of “how to” videos that cover various aspects of maintenance and operation of a Scamp.
All in all, a great job by Scamp with the new online format. You can visit the Scamp website at http://scamptrailers.com or join nearly 1900 other Scamp fans on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Scamp-TrailersEvelands-Inc/297691030279431?fref=ts
Backus, Minnesota based Scamp travel trailers is in the midst of its annual participation at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul, MN. Scamp’s presence in their home state’s fair has been a constant for several years. This year, the foot traffic in their display has been heavy, according to Scamp’s Micah Eveland. “At the quietest times the lowest number of people looking at our trailers has been about 10. At the busiest times there are so many people swarming the trailers that I cannot even see the furthest trailer away from my table!”
That foot traffic creates somewhat of an expense for Scamp, but in a good way, says Eveland. “We have so much traffic throughout the fair that we actually have to replace the carpet in the trailers! It gets matted down and looks like the carpet is about 30 years old!” It all points to the 41 year old family owned company’s prominent stake in the fiberglass travel trailer market.
Scamp will have their display open daily at the fair through closing day, Monday, September 3. At the fair, they’re located on Underwood Street between Wright and Randall Avenues.
