Scamp sales told me last summer that they could omit the cabinet to the right of the stove to make a full width bench with the front dinette option.

Thanks for the information and correction, Anne. I've read more than one thread discussing this same thing.

I'm thinking this would require a larger cushion on the streetside seat (since the table is offset toward the curbside), and one that is not normally made for any other configuration. Surprised that wasn't an issue, actually.

You might have the notion that Scamp is a conventional factory!
Custom sizing of cushions doesn't present a problem since each one is laid out and hand sewn. I simply called and requested a custom cushion for the bridge on my wrap around couch and they were glad to make it for me without delay.
BTW; that mod adds a HUGE amount of storage. Along with the big closet in the front, this mod makes the front bath 13 the most practical and comfortable choice when traveling alone or as a couple.
For a single traveler, it allows for a dinette and a 30" bunk to be set up full time while still having a shower/toilet.
It also takes the drudgery out of taking the full bed up and down.

I was thinking they at least used standard templates (or patterns, or whatever you call them in the upholstery business) to cut the pieces of fabric. That's good to know.

BTW, I really like your u-shaped dinette mod. For now, I'll keep the larger table to fit the four of us on the rare occasions when we eat inside, but when we're only two, I'd like to do something similar. Saving your photos to my "Ideas" folder.

[QUOTE=Coletrain;478186]Hello, I just joined the group, because it seems I have Scamp fever. I'm hoping to hear input from others about durability of the scamps.
I'll be pulling it 10-15k miles a year.

Thanks.


We have had both the standard 13' & the deluxe. We mostly used the bunk set-up for storage, but the deluxe had so much more storage (all out of sight), and we loved it. We now have a Lil Snoozy since the wife wanted a bathroom, and I wanted a comfortable place to sit while the bed was in use.
If you "click" on our avatar and go to "mods" you will see many pictures.
Best of Luck in your search, and welcome to the FGRV family.

The table you see is 20X30 but because of the wraparound design it seats four more comfortably than the stock table, even though the stock table has twice the surface area. We have often had four for lunch or card games and have found that the elbow room was more important.

Makes sense. Less space for table = more space for bodies. Mine only has the 44" dinette, so I'd have to accept either a narrower table and/or a narrower rear bench.

Not really, the bridge cushion is 24" (same as the side cushions) plus the 20" table equals 44". The additional 10" is a board attached to the bridge with a piano hinge which stows up behind the rear cushion when in couch mode.

Teacher, here.
Every kid is different, but most of the kids I teach wouldn't want to sleep in such a small space with the adults, unless it was raining and/or lightning. Most of them would rather be in their own tent away from the adults.

But every family has to make these decisions themselves. That's why a 100lb bunk would seem to me to be big enough for a younger child. It doesn't need to hold a larger child, because they'd want their own tent, anyway. Plus, you don't want their crap in the camper. Give them their own tent to trash!

When the lightning starts, put them right on the floor or in the suv if you can.

That's where my teacher brain goes on the bunk weight question.

13' deluxe layouts

My thinking, too. My girls are 8 and 11 and they already like their own tent sometimes. But I can also see that if I were planning a cross-country tour and breaking camp every day or two, inside berths for all might be important.
