New SKAMPER Owner
« on: April 15, 2009, 01:19:16 PM »
Hi all,

This is our 1st PUP - We purchased a 1997 SKAMPER, but unfortunately it did not come with the Owner's manual. i've been looking online for any info about SKAMPER, but it seems they do not exist anymore?? Does anyone know if they were absorbed by another company or just shut their doors? I should have researched this before buying, but it was a good deal, so I bought it. Anyone know where I can find an Owners manual or any infos on SKAMPER?

Please help!!!

If I'm not mistaken, Skamper was made by Bonair, who did fold around 2003/4. Hopefully someone will have a manual for you. Happy camping.

After a little googling, I discovered.

Kodiak by Skamper (Goshen Indiana)TTs and Hybrids, and on that site a link to Dutchmen trailers. Seems like one way or the other the Skamper name belongs to Dutchmen, though it also looks like Dutchmen (Thor Industries) has 21 brands, and none of them are popups.

I was curious because someone on my street has a Skamper, and my Lionel was made by Bonair.

I have a 2003 Scamper Kodiak Sport made by Thor industries. Thor also made the Dutchman pop up's. I believe that 2003 or 2004 was the last year for them. I bought my Scamper new and the owners packet consisted of just some of the owners booklets for the major appliances like the fridge and heater and not much more. You can get the model numbers off of the major items and go to their web sights and get the manuals for the major appliances. The lift system in my camper is made by Goshen and the fridge is a Norcold 323.
I have an owners manual for Aero Coach fold down campers and it seems to be the closest to the Scamper I have been able to find.

Slackwax - I have a 1998 Skamper. Which model did you get?

I've tried to find a manual just about everywhere with no luck. They seem to be pretty standard, though. Let me know if you have any particular questions, I would be happy to help!
