Park Liner, Egg Camper, Lil Snoozy

My wife and I visited the Scamp factory and concluded the bed was too narrow. Did stay at a wonderful B&B in Brainerd, The Whitely Creek Homestead. We are now looking at Park Liners, Egg Campers and Lil Snoozy. Any coming close to Southern WI, Northern IL or Eastern IA this summer?

Come on over to Michigan and visit the Egg Camper factory in Grandville (suburb of Grand Rapids). We chose ours for the human sized bed, the spaciousness, and the factory being less than 50 miles from home. The Egg Camper works well for taller people (I'm not one) because of being a few inches taller and wider inside. For example, a guy 6'5" would still have head & bed space.

Were you aware of the option of a 54" (fullsize) bed option available in the Scamp deluxe? A deluxe Scamp is competitive in price with a standard EggCamper or L'il Snoozy while offering the finest interior in the industry.

Beat me to it, Floyd! LOL. AMAZING what 10 extra inches will do. I did not think it would make enough of a difference until I personally saw it and laid down on it. Took what I thought was going to be a marginal sleeping area at best to a completely aweseome arrangement! Pix do not show or give the true feeling for space.

I agree the bed space in even the Scamp Deluxe is to small for alot of people traveling with two people in the camper. I had one and even though that bed might be 10" wider it still is curved and smaller on the inside edge.
The twin bed mode of the Casita might work better or the three bed Spirit Deluxe with one having the bigger bed and one having the smaller bed.

We looked at the Scamp Deluxe and didn't like the way the counter top extended over the bed. We had an 05 Casita Spirit and may go back to that. Looking for some insulation which the Casita lacked. Don't know why they don't add the foil insulation like the Scamp.

Hi: DavidWW...Check out the Escape line of trailers. The 19'er and 5.0 both have Queen sized beds. Escape Trailer Industries > Home Light weight with lots of room and storage space galore.

While it is true that the Scamp is curved at the back, it is the full 78" only about 3" from the back.At 6ft I can't actually get close enough to the back wall for the curvature to matter. As for going to a larger trailer, sure but you are entering another whole class in size at 17ft.

The full size mattress in an EggCamper leaves room around it, but the counter is just a little too close to fit a queen...properly. Though I do admit I have thought about trying it. We travel with two cats and they like to curl up in the spaces left between the walls and the mattress, so it works out in the end.

We gave owned a 19' Escape but didn't like the end dinette. Good storage.queen bed and towed well though. Also owned a 21' Big Foot but that was too heavy for us. So we are looking.

That's why it's call Custom Deluxe, you can have it built without the counter top extending over the bed.

David, with 19' Escape and 21' BigFoot owner experience under your belt I'm curious what model Scamps you toured at Backus. Also your comparative impressions of the 19' fifth wheel Scamp if that entered your calculus. TIA

Floyd, Didn't know about eliminating the counter over the bed, thanks. KamperBob, We looked at the regular and deluxe 16' models with side dinettes and a couple of 13' models which were too small for us. We didn't consider the fifth wheel because we are selling our Tundra quad cab and replacing it with a Highlander. The truck was getting to be too much of a hassle maneuvering around small parking lots because of it's long wheel base.
