Scamp does offer a larger 2-door fridge in some of their deluxe models (with semi-custom wood cabinetry).
Some Scamp models are available with a conventional oven; don't know about Casita
. That's an option I might go for myself if I were planning to travel extensively. I enjoy fresh muffins and biscuits.
As to the microwave
, I hear you about the danger. I hope that was not a personal experience. Perhaps in your case you could forego the high-mounted built-in microwave and purchase a small unit that rides on the floor and sits on the counter when parked. You'd just have to make sure there is a conveniently placed outlet with adequate amperage.
It will make me think about things when I start looking for a Trailer. Funny one never really thinks about the wheel being in the way but maybe one can re-locate the fridge to the Cupboard on the drivers side of the trailer, do away with the Micro wave as it is not really needed if one has a oven.
In Motorhomes the Micro Wave is a Big Concern for most people who are stuck with them almost as high as the ceiling. No so far we have been lucky and we have a short 10" stool to help us get closer to it, our unit did not come with a oven then one day I found a 17" Oven for sale
locally and bought it for $100. We could not install a 21" due to the fact the 6 gallon HWH is right underneath and I checked all over the MH to see if Could move it to no Avail.
Were probably in one of the smallest Class A's out there with a walk around Queen bed 25.5' with a nice Dinette area single bucket chair for those nights I cannot sleep. 10" left of the counter for making sandwiches, found a bendable top for the stove and I through a thin cutting item on it also helps, and cover the dual sink all in all works out okay,
Big problem I have is my wife now wants a slide, heck I'm fine with what we have but no she wants the new 2015 Winnebago Vista 29VE with a slide that runs from just behind the Drivers seat to within 8" of the rear corner, only good thing is u can still walk from one end to the other without problems and still get into the bed if slide is still in.
But I have a few lakes I like to go fishing at and a nice smallish trailer would be way better at getting in and out of with a trailer. Not into Campers anymore.
But again thank you for the info, I have learned a lot of useful information from this site just be reading what everyone writes and talks about.
