I remember that same discussion, Cricket, but having problems locating the thread. Seems to me that it was not deemed to be a problem, but I can't remember the final explanation. Hopefully someone can fill us in on the details.

It's okay Cricket. I know the excitement you're feeling. There's lots of things you can do for yourself here on the forums. Some require moderators assistance and some require an administrator.

Now, let's see you be you!

Here's one about a Boler, but Floyd answered in about Scamps: One side appears lower?

and yeah, my Scamp is the same way... and there's nothing wrong with the frame or the body.

About the only thing we can find "wrong" with it is the first owner (not the folks we got it from) covered a lot of the rivet caps with silicone (so it looks dirty around a few of them)....he only had it for 7 months before selling it to the people that we got it from, so I can't imagine it was for leaks.... AND the weatherstripping at the bottom of the screen door is flappy (partially torn off)....oh, and there is an issue with one of the lights, but other than that it appears to be in tip top shape! I told my youngest we would camp in the driveway first to get the hang of it. She told me that she didn't think that was much like camping because we wouldn't be leaving home...she has a point! SO the first semi-nice weekend we will take a test camp (lucky for us there is a State Park less than 10 miles away)......

Nothing wrong. Mine does as well on the door side. It was built like that but cant tell you the reason for sure.

Yes, lucky for you But, there's nothing wrong with driveway camping. Once you pull the curtains/blinds/shades... you can imagine you're ANYWHERE. And the great part... if you forgot your toothbrush, you're only steps away from home (don't ask me how I know )

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.

I admit i looked at a ton of eggs....but once i got my expectations in line, i discovered i had to pay more to get what i wanted.....and it is sitting in the driveway (til we get the garage organized so it can live indoors! Hopefully whoever won buys something nice for their egg!

I have watched your search. I found it very interesting. I think your journey should be read by everyone looking for their first egg. Expectations, requirements, and reality, and trying to get them lined up.
