That may become an issue, and not just for the Escape 17. From what I can tell, the Lil Snoozy is similar in weight. Casita 16s and Scamp 16s are a little lighter, but could still be a problem.

Tow ratings typically only assume two people and minimal cargo. My Honda Pilot has a chart in the owner's manual showing how the tow rating decreases as you add more people (or equivalent cargo). You might check to see if your owner's manual has something similar.

Thanks, Jon. I am imagining that at most it would be my husband and me and a large dog as far as occupancy goes. . . .Since my dog weighs over 110 lbs., I count him as an occupant. . . I will go get my Odyssey book out and check out that info for my van.

Thanks again,
Tonie

My 1987 Scamp 13 still has its original floor and sponge back carpet flooring. I am at least the third owner. The oriented strand wood sub-floor was coated on top by Scamp when built. The street side of the flooring is un-coated which is a good thing. If the wood gets wet it can dry out instead holding moisture between layers and forming dry rot. If your diligent with dealing with moisture issues you will have no problem with the Scamp flooring. Getting the floor wet is not an issue. letting it stay wet and soaking in is a big issue. Ignoring leaking openings in the shell or leaking water lines or holding tanks is a disaster. Allowing liquids to freeze in your trailer and damaging systems and then after it thaws out and leaks inside the trailer you come to use the trailer several months later your going to get really upset. Its no different than the home you live in. Spill something on your hard wood floors you wipe it up immediately no harm no foul same in your trailer.

What Scamp is using now and how its prepared is probably a little different than they did 30 years ago.

Thanks, Steve. I appreciate the input. Common sense told me that there wouldn't be so many happy Scamp owners out there if there was a major problem. I learned there was wood in the flooring years ago, yet never heard much about it until lately, when the topic was brought up again. Since I know I am probably not up to tackling a real problem, like replacing a floor, I thought I needed to find out more about it all. And though nothing stays the same, I am encouraged by what I have learned in the discussion today. . .
Thanks again for the help.
Tonie

Hi Tonie,

My name is Tonnie and I've been asking a lot of questions on this site too. This may get confusing!

Tonnie or Tonie

Hi, Tonnie! It could get indeed confusing! My "Tonie" is a diminutive of "Toinette" - - lots easier to say, and spell (for most people)!
