I picked up my new Scamp
13' on Feb 22 2007.
I drove 1,100 miles back to Denver.
It pulled like a dream.
It really is nice so here is what I found.
We really like the interior. I would take it out to 0deg F.
With the front window you really don't feel cramped in and
the extra 2" height is wonderfull.
The bed could be bigger, but I took the hinges off the top cushion
on the front bunk bed, put the top cushion on the bottom and the
other cushion on the back. This gave a lot more room and made it
easier to get into the front botton storage. Now it makes a great couch
or a roomy bed. I got both upper cabinets. So with the 2 upper cabinets
and the 2 storage areas under the couch and closet, there is plenty of
storage for clothes.
The rear storage under the dinnett is worthless for clothes.
The kitchen area is great but needs something on the back wall to protect
against food spatter.
Overall I would rate the interior a A
1. I ordered the dual propane
tanks. Nothing wrong with it except they only
used 1 bolt on each side in the middle of the tank pan. This allows for
excessive vibration caused by the tanks rocking back and forth.
I consider this dangerous and life threatening.
The factory is negligent on this. 4 bolts placed correctly would cure this
2. I have both large roof vent and roof fan. Both needed to be grease as they
both do not open or close smoothly. If not greased they both would wear
3. The chaulking around windows
and vents is a little sloppy.
4. The DOOR I spent a lot of time before purchase researching the door.
I read a lot of complaints from others with little or now factory solution.
I complained at the factory and the door man came and made a small
adjustment, but I accepted it because the door fit good at the bottom.
But the top opposite the hinges would not pull tight. The door is not
strong enough to hold shape.
I believe that there is a easy solution to this problem but the factory is
not going to be any help. (more on this later)
Overall I would rate the construction of the trailer a B+
Only because of the door.
Would I buy it again"
In a heart beat.
There are some mods to make. But for this year it is good to go.
I am styling now.
