I'm here. 2001 Sport 21D, made by Thor. The bad: no brakes, weird Frankenstein axle, original suspension too weak and broke. The good: everything else.

I love my Skamper, wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have a 1999 Skamper Vison 23S by Thor. I've had it for 2 years now and haven't had any issues. Luckily the previous owner had most of the original paperwork which I've been told is pretty hard to find for these campers. If I get a chance I will try to post some photos this weekend.

1990 Skamper 245C here. No real complaints here for something 24 years old. Plywood on the bed ends instead of OSB. No roof leaks. Table and counter are also 3/4" plywood.

Mine is a 1996 skamper. Made by Thor. Not sure of the exact model and the wife recently peeled off all of the graphics so really no way to tell now.
The good: recent new roof no more problems with that now. :)
The bad: most of the rest needs to be restored and no time left before our first camping trip this year. Everything is in good enough shape for now though so I will decide at the end of the year if I will continue to restore it or sell it and get something different in the spring.

If anyone is interested I am having a new tire carrier fabbed up from aluminum diamond plate. I can post pictures when it is done, and let you know the cost of having it made. They are also fabricating replacement skins for my camper from 1/16" aluminum. The aluminum is embossed with paint of different colors. I am doing a blue.

Sounds awesome Felix, excited to see the pictures!

so you are happy with having your pop up lifted? I assume you did the leaf spring flip?

I'm here and brand new! We just picked up a 1986 139c. We're new to this whole thing, so I will be floating questions I'm sure! As a matter of fact, here's the first one... Have do I find replacement bulbs for the clearance and taillights? Most of the current bulbs are bad, but they don't have numbers or any markings. Thanks!

Best bet is to take the bulb with you to match it up. The local RV store here in town has a whole selection of LED replacement bulbs. I have seen decent selections at stores like Auto Zone as well.

You have the newest Skamper that I know of! Do you have any pics, or links to pics?

New co-owner of a 1995 Skamper. Went in 1/2 & 1/2 with my niece and her family. Planning inaugural trip now, heading out west in a couple of weeks. Camper is in great shape. We can't wait to get going!!

Hi! Thanks for the advice on the bulbs, got it set and ready to go!

Does anybody know what these are? The PO said they are stabilizer bars, but they never use them and they were wrapped in cardboard under a mattress.

Thanks!
