  • Handling And Control:

Pros:It tows well and looks good.

Cons:It is falling apart in 8 months.

The Bottom Line: Do not buy this trailer it is unreliable and an ongoing fixit nightmare.


I bought a Scamp 5th wheel trailer in January of 2008. Never again. Prior to this I always had truck campers since I live in Alaska. I decided to get something that I could unload so I could get into difficult areas where all the good fishing was. I read the reviews and thought the Scamp was a good choice. unfortunately it was on their web site.It wasn't. The thing is falling apart already. The water tank fill port leaked all over the trailer and it wasn't until I pulled it apart that I could find it. There are other issues as well, such as the drawers all falling out once you are moving. The refrigerator doors popped open and broke off due to a real lousy suspension. The sink in the bathroom is a flimsy plastic contraption that is one jump up from a paper plate. The water that leaked has damaged the plywood sink cabinet as well as the cabinet with drawers on the other side and dry rot will probably be the result. I know I am a certified building inspector. The bathroom walls are separating where there is a little shelf behind the toilet. This was supposed to be the deluxe model and I drove down from Fairbanks, Alaska to pick it up. What a mistake. If this is an example of American craftsmanship, buy Chinese, on second thought don’t buy anything and watch these clowns starve to death.
