We like our awning, but the Scamp
awning is a real pill to pull out and stow. You might consider getting Reace at Escape
Trailers to install an awning for you instead.
We love our bigger 'Fridge.
I am adding lights
to the exterior of our trailer to make setup easier.
The screen door is well worth the price.
As for lights
. . .
I really don't like the lighting
options Scamp (or most other RV vendors) offer. The reading lights are OK (for incandescent lights), but the standard rectangular lights do a lousy job of providing even, pleasing, and usable lighting. We've pretty much replaced or stopped using most of them.
Here's what we do use. Each corner over the dinette has a reading/task light
, but for overall lighting I attached four warm-ish white LED strips to the wood frame around our vent fan as a "ceiling" light
and wired them into a little red push button in the fan housing (under the knob that opens the vent). It provides nice, even lighting over the dinette table. Really lights the space up.
Those square lights also do a pretty poor job of lighting up the kitchen space well. These days I'd probably go off to eBay and buy two warm-white, meter-long, self-adhesive, and waterproof LED strip-lights ($25 or so each), cut them to length and mount them under the front bottom edge of my upper kitchen cabinets. Those strip lights were not available when I installed my kitchen lights, so I installed LED puck lights at roughly 10" intervals over our counters. Once again, these provide lots of very even lighting right where we need it.
Those three lights (one around the fan and one over each counter) are easily the most used (and useful) lights in our trailer. With those in mind, I'd have Scamp install a Fantastic Fan over the dinette (it's something we use often anyway) so I'd have 12v wiring to the roof and a rectangular light
at one end of each counter and make plans to replace them with LED shortly after getting the trailer. That way you'll get much better lighting and use much less electricity when you're boondocking
Beyond that, reading lights in all four corners and two of those rectangular lights (easily converted to LEDs) in different locations in the entry area. Possibly also a double-rectangle over the gaucho up front.
