I think it is normal and I searched the Scamp registry for a good illustration of this and found Jerry-Janelle's Trailer :: 2011 Scamp Standard
. After you click on the link, click on the "Registry Image" to enlarge it. Study the "Driver's side" of the trailer and note the bottom edge of the body: It's mostly a straight line, right?
Now put your cursor on the right half of the enlarged picture: see the tab "Next" appear? Click on that to view the front "Curb Side" "corner". See how the bottom part of the door is in shadow? The line between the bright and the shadow is where the bottom edge of the body would be
if it matched the bottom edge of the "Driver's Side".
The "main floor" of the Scamp is actually a dropped floor
in the center of the trailer and at the entry door...
The "raised" floor in the rear dinette area is actually the normal floor height, where the bottom edge of the "Driver's Side" of the body is. Notice the "Floor" inside
the Kitchen Cabinet, the closet, and the front bench seat (except for the porta-potty cupboard
)? They're all at the higher floor level the same as the rear dinette!
This design characteristic, carried over from the Boler
, is how the trailer has stand-up room inside while at the same time be short enough to fit in a garage. Because the bottom of the door area is also dropped, this is why the Curb side body dips down lower than the other side.
