    Or I have one you can borrow. Need someone in the truck to press brakes while someone is at the back to watch the LEDs.

    Posted this in the 'latest purchase' thread but picked up a 2008 Kodiak Scamper 21QS (21ft with a queen size slide on the back). Has dual double bunks on the front, came with dual 30lb tanks, and a thule 3-bike rack. They included the WD hitch and storing it for me for the next 1.5 months.

    My only hesitation when I bought it was there's a bubble on the back/right corner. It almost seemed like the fiberglass was not fit properly vs delaminated from water. I got my camera in the back corner + got a camera down there I think it may have been a factory defect the owners never picked saw when they bought it. When I opened it up, the plywood was bent to try and fit around the a the door frame. The board on the inside isn't bubbled, didn't have mold, or any rot. Plus the owners showed me pics of it from years ago and the bubble was there. I'll definitely keep an eye on it … you can see it in the first pic below.

    I felt like I stole it for the price I paid for it.


    First order of business will be bearings (they had service records regularly - 3 years ago bearings were done and 2 years ago tires were replaced).

    That’s moisture damage. It bubbles because it expands on the inside.

    Yeah that's what I originally thought too, figured they had left that access door open over the winter or something since it spreads from that door. I'll reseal around that door when it warms up and watch to see if it expands anymore. On the back side there wasn't any deformation of the plywood so I was puzzled (see my comment above about the plywood being bent around the little access door frame).

    Once it warms up a bit hop on the roof and reseal. It’s probably the single most forgotten thing to do and it costs about $15. Just peak off the old beads and put on a new thick one with your finger. They normally last about 3-5 years depending on the silicon used. If the bearings were done 3 years ago I would imagine it’s time. I try to get mine done every second summer but I know people who do it once a year.

    It could also potentially be heat warping. A have a buddy who had his camp bbq a bit to close to the trailer and warped his hardside from heat. I do think your first guess on the access panel leaking is a good one.
