Hi all, I am new here, and new to trailer camping. My husband and I have decided to get a Scamp 13' standard with the wet bath, but we can't order it yet. The sales rep said their current lead time was 5 to 9 months, and getting shorter. That would get it to us at a time when we would not have time to use it, but would still have to pay to park it somewhere. Too frustrating. We will wait. But no one can stop me from planning and scheming and daydreaming.
We plan to use it to make trips from Minnesota to the Catskills region in New York where our grandkids live. We plan to boondock at Harvest Hosts or public lands (or wherever convenient, really) along the way and moochdock once we get there. We also plan to do camping trips to state and national parks, staying 2 - 5 nights at campsites with at least electric hookups. We want to see a lot of National Parks and the like, and longer journeys would combine both boondocking and developed campgrounds. At least that is what we think we will like to do with the still hypothetical Scamp.
I come seeking wisdom. What should newbies make sure to know? What options should we order, and what things should we get, but not from the Scamp factory? Advice is welcome on any and all Scamp related matters.
