Speaking to Rease first hand, we discussing how many they had made since they started production....300 or something like that, I thought that was a lot, he told me that Casita cranks out something like 3000 a year.
Wow! That's about 12 a day output.

Here are the unofficial numbers I have heard....

Scamp produces approx 350-450 units per year
Casita produces approx 500-600 units per year

I could not imagine those kind of numbers coming out of our facility....nor do I think I want to. I am trying to hang on to what little hair I have left

Having said that, it stands to reason why they can't make modifications to their units as it definitely cuts into the efficiency.

Merry Christmas

I find hair is over-rated... Just let it follow it's natural migration south as you get older...

When we ordered two of our Scamps (Deluxe) we ordered them the way we wanted them, And yes we ordered them with custom mods. We added, removed, replaced, tookout, moved walls, and ordered the trailer we wanted not the one they had. You just have to know what you want before you place the order. You can get a "Custom ordered trailer from Scamp".

Hi: Ken C... Since those two Mfg. Co's near flatly refuse almost all custom mod's and with their age old methods of Mfg. they can knock them out pretty fast and do stock pile unsold trailers. Escape builds from sold orders only and completes each trailer in aprox 3 weeks from fiberglass cloth to out the door finished. Their build methods are top notch and take longer to do but the quality speaks volumes. They don't try to fit flat windows on a curved shell... the mold is flatened out in that area adding strength to the wall and allowing a better seal and less likelyhood of leaks. Thats only one reason why I own one!!!
