Isn't there some sort of bed width difference in a 16' Scamp between Deluxe and Standard models? (or is that just in the 13' model?)

Sharon I don't know where/how they measure the height but would think it wouldn't be were the AC is located as thats an option that a lot of people don't get and one would expect it to be a bit lower.

Yes as far as I am aware there is a difference in bed size between a Scamp Standard and Deluxe. The Deluxe having the larger bed.

I have the 13' Deluxe with a 54" bed. Mine is a 1992. When I bought it, as some of you recall, I needed an extra space for my grandson to sleep so we remodeled it. I've even had an adult sleep there. Just about everyone on here said don't do the remodel, make him sleep on the floor. (I would never do that). Well I wanted my camper to fit my needs and not worry about resale. I'm very pleased with the remodel and I think it turned out really nice. As you can see, the extra counter can be put back up if needed, and the potty is in the cabinet next to the air conditioner. When it's just me and the pooch, I leave the cushions at home and use it for my tubs of all my junk

You're right, John headroom is 72" not 72.5" as I had originally posted.

Just to clarify the height issue. My trailer measures 72" from floor to ceiling. Approx. 71" when measured floor to ac.

I have no desire to represent Scamp.
My hobby is refurbishing Scamp and other Eggs.
I have rebuilt at least 8 or 10 eggs since I retired in 05.
I find their parts prices atrocious and their shipping even worse.

I had the same thought about their height as you did.
I posted my concern here and a response from Donna Reminded me tat when in the trailer one is very seldom standing up.

I traveled all over the western half of the United States and NEVER had a problem with the height.

The only time I ever hit my head is when I forget to duck when leaving the trailer.
I'm sure many other Scamp owners do the same thing.
I don't think you will find a better FBRV than a Scamp.
Just buy you parts off the net, they are all available if you look.

Eric, you said you bought the trailer on the net.
Are you sure it's a 2013?
Crazy things sometimes happen when internet purchases are made.

A VIN number check and decode could confirm the year.....
