I just ordered our SCAMP
13 footer standard model back a couple of weeks ago. I have been looking for the right camper to tow behind my Jeep 2 door automatic for a few years. I looked very strongly at the Little Guy teardrops and then the TAB! I was pretty close to deciding that the TAB was the way to go. When by chance, I saw a picture of a SCAMP that I had looked at as a possibility several years ago.... I directed my research in that direction and found the SCAMP suited my needs over all the other campers I had considered.
The Little Guys are good campers and found them to be very nice, appealing and well built. Talking to the folks at Little Guy was encouraging.
However there were some deal breakers for me...
The interior height of any TAB is way too low for me... I could not stand erect in any of their models.
I could not stand straight and would have to bend way forward while cooking in any position the kitchen was in (except clam shell of course) Although very nice and seemingly would work very well, the clam shell kitchen gives you no choice for cooking on those rainy chilly days.
The bed was too short and would never be able to stretch my legs out.
My research found that the "basic" TAB model, with no options included, cost well over the cost of a 13 ft SCAMP with every option I needed and ordered. (this was a very large cost difference)
I chose the SCAMP 13 footer with the front sofa/bunk (no shower/bathroom), wider bed 54", roof A/C, and several extra little things.. outlets and lights
etc. (and still cost several thousand under TAB's basic set up with no options)
With the SCAMP, I can stand up in every location except directly under the A/C (I am 5'14" tall) my head does rub a bit... but I fit! I can fit on both the bunk bed and the bed/dinette.
Also... the resale value and or the time it takes to sell a used SCAMP or other FG camper was highly encouraging! Many of these SCAMPS and other FG campers last only a few hours when advertised!!!!!!!!!! AND they keep a very high value too! Which tells me there is something to these campers that make them so highly desirable!
I feel I made the right decision and am very comfortable with it. I am looking forward to our little gem!
I hope this helps with your decision...
BTW... Call SCAMP and ask them for someone nearby that has a SCAMP model that you are interested in... they will give you a name and number for you to talk to these happy folks! I met a very nice couple and a nice SCAMP just the way I wanted it by just calling the folks at SCAMP 800 346 4962
