Serro Scotty Sportsman small travel trailer exterior 

Serro-Scotty says:  "The Sportsman brings the fun back to camping. Re-live the golden age of travel trailers with a classic design. Although small in size the Sportsman is big on features. Your camper can comfortably sleep three, with a single front and a full sized rear bed. With Scotty’s innovative drop floor the center headroom is 6’1”. Many standard features are included; sink, stove, brakes, furnace and refrigerator. Pick which features are right for you, by adding A/C, awning, microwave, spare tire, and TV/DVD. Easy to tow, easier to camp in. Come see the Scotty difference."

The first picture we show below is looking to the rear and the dinette/bed.  You can see the layout of this on the floorplan lower down this page.  There are 2 floorplan options, but this dinette/bed arrangement is common to them both.  The dinette bed size is 28” x 82”.

The quality of the furnishings and fittings is good and a 12000 btu furnace (standard) together with a 5000 BTU air conditioner (option) makes this a really nice interior whatever the weather.
The next picture shows the front arrangement for the dinette/bed front option.

Bill KerolaHi fellow campers I would like to talk about the new Serro Scotty Project First and foremost I am a avid camper and it is a dream come true to be involved with bringing back the Serro Scotty It disheartens me to hear of a few problems that has been had with them. In 2006 I was blessed to reach a agreement with the Serro family to bring the campers back. Over the years I relied on several different manufactures that I felt were repeatable builders. My goal has been to recreate a modern retro. By relying on experienced builders my goal was to design the interiors, floor plans and market. There have been many 'road bumps' along the way. The RV industry had a disaster as the banking collapse with many companys going bankrupt and halting manufactuering. I have continued in spite of all the calamity. The current horizon has become brighter as we do have active production. In active production are both the Scotty Lite and the Scotty Sportsman. Due to the overall industry we have found and partnered with a new facilities, that in my opinion is producing a quality camper. To maintain my reputation in the industry I have been actively involved in the new model. It weighs in at 1800# s, two floor plans are available and both models feature laminated walls, all options and have a full skylight over the back sofa bed. I am sure there will be more hiccups down the road but am committed to continue to bring the Serro Scotty to the market place. We will have both models on display camping at the Tearjerkers National rally at McCormick State Park. At this point my dream has been realized and has always been to bring back a unique camper. I hope that those who don't have the ability to build there own can have a chance to get into a modern retro. More info can be found at Better yet stop in at either our headquarters in Transfer Pa or the rally to see the current trailers Happy Camping Bill

ChrisI just purchased a 1963 Scotty Sportsman, Beautiful trailer, Good condition, Needs very little work. Is there anyone else in NC with theses vintage campers?
PatrickI have a 1965 Serro Scotty in great shape. Use it on my get away property and love it. Not sure if I want to sell but may. Seems a shame for it to not be seen more.
johnc60123@gmail.comI own a 2008 Serro Scotty Tonga. It is 4 years old as of December 2012...and although I love this trailer, I am EXTREMELY disappointed by the horrendously bad workmanship. This was my first travel trailer and I did not know what to look for in terms of fit / finish / materials / workmanship. MAJOR roof leaks, multiple broken cabinet drawers, multiple plumbing leaks, peeling wallpaper, wheel wells separating from body, rapidly deteriorating exterior paint, leaking windows, water-warped interior walls...I could go on. And as far as assembly, they used misc scraps of wood and whatever screws were laying around on the work bench to assemble it. The drawers and interior fixtures are literally assembled with RANDOM screws and rough scraps of wood. I am a single guy who is exceedingly careful with all of my NONE of these issues are due to abuse. The trailer is meticulously maintained but there's no getting around the absurdly bad workmanship. This particular Serro Scotty trailer was built by Sierra Interiors out of Indiana. For a 15" trailer (12" interior length) costing almost $15,000 I expected more. It's a shame because the owner of Serro Scotty (Bill Kerola) is actually an extremely nice guy with good intentions. I don't think he knowingly let this shoddy trailer out of the Sierra Trailer factory...and I don't think it was (or is) his intention to build and sell poor quality products. Fortunately, Sierra Trailers no longer manufactures trailers for Serro Scotty.
jayco1996Just bought an 18ft Highlander Trunckback,all original,all appliances work, g'son has been helping me fix the ceiling, and getting ready to paint it, the paint has faded pretty bad, want to keep it the original colors. Nice little trailer, went from a 32 ft fifth wheel.

KanduAs our SUV has a tow limit of 1500# the Scotty Put looks interesting. The only draw back is having the toilet next to the kitchen sink without a separation. No matter how much you scrub it, it just seems kind of unsanitary.
