If the 5er is ugly Why do so many people Say "my what a cute little trailer you have". Or being flagged down on the road for a look at your cute little trailer. Or getting a discount at a ferry bording because you have such a cute little rig. We camp with friends with large stick builts an no one ever comes over to see their cote little rig!!

Not to rain on anyone's parade, or at least not to rain too hard, have you ever stepped back and considered the external aesthetics of any trailer or motorcoach?

Let's think "Retro" for a moment. The current reigning royalty of trailer "retro" are the Airstreams, also known as "Silver Turds." Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it takes a lens with a really, really soft focus to turn "turd" into "art."

For my likes, I try to make the inside of my trailer beautiful. The outside . . . well, if it can't be beautiful, I'll just have to live with "quirky."

They have their own look and isn't that great to not be a clone of any other 5th wheel.

You surely know it's a Scamp 5th wheel...no doubt of that.

It's beautiful!!

My husband would love to convert our bed like yours. Maybe I wouldn't feel like I am sleeping against the curve and disturbing his rest with my over active bladder.

Cindy, we switched to "twin" beds in the Bigfoot, best thing ever. I can have my "Princess and the pea" bed and hubby can have his rock. We can come and go as needed. It was quite a bit of work but well worth it.

I still like to use my husband like an electric blanket and agravate the heck out of him.

I could have sworn my wife's name was Kelley, not Cyndi, but after all this time the memory get's fuzzy.

Yes but your wife using you as an electric blanket can lead to all sorts of good things.

Not in my trailer. My wife turns the blanket off as soon as she gets warmed up.

My Scamp is beautiful but I have always described them as a cross between an Airstream and a porta-potti!

If I ever were to chose a fiver, the Sport Trac would be my tug of choice. I'd like a red Adrenelin! No stick available though.
