    Frankly I would want the battery outside the camper. They sometimes leak acid and the fumes under some conditions can explode. Thats why they are outside on the hitch in the open air. Some campers have a side access panel door with vents that opens to the outside and the battery is in it. Before you get all upset at what I said, I was a Air Craft Electrician in the USAF and we learned the Right way to maintain batteries.

    Can anyone advise about the "payload" of a 1989 170x Skamper? I'm thinking about doing some kind of buildout on the frame and curious about what its capacity might be. Any insight would be great!

    New (to me) 1992 Skamper 240C owner here. I am looking for owner manuals for my camper if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Only one I have been able to locate is the one for the fridge so far. Looking for one about the cassette toilet and the hot water tank still. And if there is one on the lift system that would be helpful too.

    We just bought a 1984 Skamper 111c. It's in incredible shape. The dry Colorado air is kind to vehicles in general, and this little gem is no exception. (And it was stored indoors for the last several years.) It is our first pop up. We've been exclusively tent campers until now.

    By the way, we have the original manual and will scan it soon. (Not that it's any big help. It's written generically for several models.)

    I am a proud new owner of a 1992 211C. New to PUP and don't know what the different water lines are for, I think I need a total walk around/through tutorial / : I do have the original owners manual but not too specific. Any help would be appreciated.
