A new scamp, good for you. I read somewhere that scamp is going to crank out (jalousie) windows exclusively for the side rear windows on their campers but if there is still a choice between crank out or slider, I would recommend crank outs. This was a no cost option when we looked. Good luck, Raz

Thanks, Raz. It's true, Scamp is going to jalousie windows. The sliders are still available but being phased out. We went with the crank-outs based on our salesmen's recommendation, he said it will be much easier to get replacement parts for them down the road.

Counting the days till it gets here :-)

From the Q & As at Scamp web site:

Can roof air conditioners be added to older Scamp trailers?
A. All 5th wheel Scamps can use roof air conditioners. Older 5th wheels may require the oak reinforcement supports (can be purchased from the Scamp parts department). On most 16 foot Scamps from the year 2000 the roof has been supported for the roof air. On 16 foot Scamps prior to this year most didn’t have the roof air support. To check for support find the 120 volt wire tucked behind the fabric strip. This wire will be on the same side of the trailer as the 120 panel with the circuit breakers. Any trailers with the wire and support in the roof can have the roof air added. Thirteen foot Scamp trailers don’t have the roof air support unless there is already a roof air installed or if the original buyer requested that the trailer be built that way. Also most trailers with a power vent in the roof air spot won’t have supported roofs. Most 16 and 13 foot trailers prior to 2000 used a side air conditioner in the lower part of the closet by the door. This air conditioner is no longer available.
