We had never seen a Scamp
, nor even knew of a Casita
when we order a Scamp
in March 2005, and we were extremely happy with it once we saw one, and love it now that we have it and have gone camping/travelilng with it. If you are planning on getting a new one, Scamp
, they both have a fairly long waiting list to get on line, and it seems a Long Long wait after you order one. We ordered in March and it was finished in August. If ordering new, Scamp in Backus, MN is closer to you than Casita
in Rice, TX. For us, Rice would have been much closer, but we didn't find out about Casita until after we had order the Scamp.
Casita makes a 17' which would be nice, but Scamp has the 19' 5th wheel which would make full timing easier. I know Casita has a list of people who will show their units if you give them a call. Perhaps, Scamp does as well. Call Scamp @ 1-800-346-4962 ask about getting a name to contact and ask for a Video of how they make Scamps, it is neat.
Call Casita @ 1-800-442-9986 to get a contact to view one.
Scamp is a little more retro in Looks, but is somewhat lighter, perhaps more head room, and is better insulated. You may also have a hitch reciever added to the Scamp at the factory, which was not listed as an option on their options list, but saw some at the factory when we visited it in June of '05 and had it added to ours to haul bikes, etc. Casita has larger holding tanks, fresh and grey and black, the bottom is also fiberglass and I believe you can get larger beds to name some differences.
Still have not gotten inside of a Casita myself but they seem be a very good product. As I mentioned Scamp is made very well.
