Hi, Rachel & Family, and congratulations
on your masterful decision to become "Scamp-addicts" !!!
We've had our '93 Scamp 13 for 5 yrs now - we are the 3rd owners, but it looked & felt 'barely used' and we agree it IS THE best toy we've ever had! Our thoughts:
OUTSIDE OUTLET - YES! We don't have one, and have run an extension to the power post when needed, but it would be lovely to have one.
EXTRA LIGHTS (interior) - Get 'em! our rig had only the 2 12-volt and one fluorescent. When we visited the factory last year for some upgrades, we added in the center on the overhead cabinet (also added) for better lighting
in the dinette. Also added o'head storage w/light at the front, but that might not work well when you are using the bunks for your gals.
BIKES - no experience here, but I personally would make other arrangements & not carry them behind the trailer.
OTHER STUFF -
1. You will be happy if you choose the silverware drawer option - I love it.
2. From another Scamp owner, we learned you can have a door added to the 'slanted' end of the dinette bench (or benches) - this is WONDERFUL as you can access the fresh-water valve, the electrical
side and any other stored stuff without struggling with the hatch covers. This works especially well for us, as we leave the bed set up all the time.
3. If you choose to add a 'porch light', be sure it has a switch you can operate from INSIDE the trailer ... so you don't have to open the door to see who/what is outside.
4. Our Egg has no 12-volt outlet inside (we will add one when we get "a roundtuit" - you might consider this option too.l
Hope this helps. We wish you safe travels and many, many happy memories. We have special friends in Denison & Plymouth, so perhaps our travel paths will cross one day. Take care, L 'n D
