Yes, I believe there was. I think "Scamper" was the Canadian one, and "Skamper" was American, if I'm not mistaken.

Nice looking rig! I have never seen one like that, although my Father used to have an overhead camper....but was noting like that.

Picture from our last trip of the season!

Thanks everyone! We are really enjoying RVing. We just got home from our last trip of the season. Attached is my favorite picture from the trip. Now she will be winterized and stored in a barn until next May. I'm sad to see her go away so soon, but the safety inspection runs out on Sept. 30 and she needs tail pipes to pass so we're going to wait until next year.

Cheers!
Cindy
