Doghaus, I didn't know about the option of getting wider beds in Scamps either when we ordered. Didn't find out about them until much later on this forum.
Likewise, In 2005, I just happened to see a receiver hitch on a Scamp when visiting the factory. Asked them about it & yes, you could order one for $50. Wasn't listed on the option list. We ordered one.
I checked for an option listing for a 54" bed (just the other day), couldn't fine it listed anywhere I looked. It's not the easiest site to find out about what one can get.
Before you jump into buying a new 16' Scamp Deluxe Wood to get the larger bed. Try sleeping head to toe in the one you have. It really does give much more elbow room.
Haven't had any problem in kicking each other either. I was somewhat concerned about that at first.
However, the 16' gives more room overall & comes with a larger fridge
: 4.6 cubic foot refrigerator
. Which my wife really wanted.
The Side Dinette Table is neat as well. Front Shower is nice to have. We use it a lot.
Are the Deluxe Wood Scamps heavier then the Standards? Just curious.
If one can get a Standard 13' Scamp with the 54" bed. It would seem they are now making the molded counters or whatever it takes to put the bed into a 13'. Why couldn't these same molded fiberglass counters and/or whatevers be used to do the same thing in a 16' Scamp? Maybe someday, one can get wider beds in them both.
This larger (than 16') Fun Finder 189 FBS's Floor Plans
seems to be pretty neat.
Or the Fun Finder F-189 FDS
, which is similar. Both Exterior Length - 18' 9" & Exterior Width - 7'.
Fun Finder 189 FBS is a nice little trailer as seen on this YouTube Video
& quite a bit larger than our Scamp. I wouldn't mind having one. However, the shower space might be tighter than what we have in the Scamp.
I know Sacrilege! But At my age, the Scamp will likely outlast me by decades. So having a Stick Built would last long enough for me.
Not likely to get rid of the Scamp, however, the added room would be nice in allowing us to have grandkids stay/camp with us at times.
Now to go the opposite direction, a smaller than 13' Scamp. A somewhat new molded fiberglass Teardrop
TT made in Elkhart, IN. But one would have wider beds in them for sure. It seems to be molded fiberglass at least to me.
As would one of these have a wider bed, something like a teardrop, a RoughNeck
is very light weight
Little Joe & Ponderosa TTs
. Very small, yet large beds; made in Colorado. Interior height is at 6'.
RoughNeck is half a Little Joe
Never seen any of these other Trailers mentioned, but would like to check them out someday. Just curious. Ha!
Sorry, about the veering off from the Scamps. Now back to Regular Programing.
