16ft Scamp trailer

Recently purchased a Scamp trailer on-line. Referred to Scamp website for pertinent info. Website sez headroom is 75". Disappointed to find actual headroom is 72.5"

What age is the Scamp you purchased. Scamp had a fire a few years back and the moulds of the 13' ? changed a little after and I believe the newer trailers may have a bit more headroom as a result.

Carol is correct. The factory burned in 2006, destroying the trailer molds. The current specs you saw on the Scamp website are for the post-fire units. The extra headroom was a welcome addition to the design. Sorry you got disappointed by that, but hopefully it will still work out for you?

Ok, now I'm puzzled. My brochure from Scamp also says 6'3" (75" as you say). So it should have been. Any other owners of new-ish Scamp 16s care to chime in?

Where in the trailer are you measuring this height? I'm curious, maybe you are going from floor to bottom of A/C unit, or what?

Eric, I'm 6' 2" and never found the 72" a problem.
I had a 2003 16" SD.
You get used to it after awhile and you spend very little time standing up in the trailer.

I should also point out that the headroom under the air conditioner

I should also point out that the headroom under the air conditioner is less than 72".

John, your perspective, though appreciated, misses the point. Do you represent Scamp in any way? The factory had no response to my email to them re: the headroom issue.

Still figuring this forum out. Posted earlier that the large bed in our 2013 Scamp is narrower than a full size mattress. Don't know what happened to that post. :-\

I think Scamp has some "splainin" to do on advertised headroom. Perhaps my Atty. can motivate a response from them.

Why not just call their toll free number and ask them why the trailer you have doesn't meet the same specs as on their site?

Carol, do most companies who advertise height measure from the bottom of the installed A/C to the floor, or from the ceiling itself down to the floor?

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?)

S.
