    New to camping and campers...we just bought a 1989 Skamper 211c for $200. Cable broken and no keys, but figured, hey for the price, we couldn't go wrong. Got it home yesterday so now wife is cleaning roof and exterior while I replace the cable system. The information and input from all you nice people we have read thus far have made us glad in our decision to try this endeavor........

    Hey all, I'm new here so please excuse my ignorance.

    We recently came into a 1987 Skamper 212C and I was hoping someone here could verify the dry weight. also, has anyone had any luck finding a manual for this year?

    unfortunately, 1981-1994 are dark times. There’s really no data for these years. I’ve been looking. i have a 1987 build 170X, but it’s titled as a 1988 Jayco Skamper since Skamper, itself as a manufacturer was not listed with the state titling office.

    as for dry weight, your best bet is to run it down to a near-by truck stop and scale it at the CAT scale. That’s what I had to do.
    You can check the Nada guide, which shows 1060lbs. But I wouldn’t trust that fully.
    https://www.nadaguides.com/RVs/1987/Skamper/M-210C-211C-212C/6003602/Specs

    My 170x was listed at 890 and I weighed it at 1020.
