Hi: Yamaha_gurl...No!!! We did pass thru the area Aug. 5th. on our way to Ottawa then Mississippi Lk. near Carlton Place tho. We did see a Boler(was that you?) being tugged on the road and a Trillium in a rest area parking lot!!! There are two other 5.0's in Ont. and one lives close to Presquile P. Pk.

Scamp trailer picked up with a Jeep

Hi LLN: We were at the Scamp plant this week looking at the trailers. It looks like you are pulling your Scamp with a 4 door Jeep. We also have a 4 door, and are curious to know how the trailer is pulling. What size motor do you have? We were thinking about getting a 16 foot, but from everything we are reading about weight and jeeps, we are now thinking about the 13 foot. Also wanted to know if that is a custom Scamp?
Thanks
Laura June

I too drove to Backus, MN to pickup my Scamp and really enjoyed the experience with all the great people there. I chose the 13ft just so I could handle it better/I have never towed anything. I have a tight turn to access parking behind my house and needed helper plus a harbor freight trolly to get it in. My Jeep salesman said I would be able to tow the 16ft, but I decided for me and the Golden's that 13 was just easier. From Backus to central PA, the Scamp tracked well behind the jeep. I needed extension mirrors to see behind us, but I managed to figure it out without them. The 13ft is not a delux, but I did add a/c (travel to Ariz), extra electrical outlet interior (computer/photography), the bathroom, awning, electric brakes, and some reading lights/cabinets come with. Everybody loves the little Scamp. I still haven't traveled/camped with it yet, but about to do that. I just lack the experience, why I stay tuned to this great web site for all the advice and information I can gather. I had a little trouble with a sagging jeep rear when the trailer is hooked up. It may be the shocks on the rubicon model, I do not know. It does bring in to question just how heavy is the tongue with a bathroom up front. I have a boat-load of recommendations, but not really a good solution. The Jeep will work. I just made a different tow veh decision very recently traded for a Tacoma, dbl cab, tow pkg and 4WD pkg. I plan to travel to the West most of the time and have to deal with Montana winds and the mountains to Arizona. Hopefully, this TV will do well. I wish you great success with your new trailer, you will really enjoy it.

Linda

Without the bathroom in front, a 13 is too tongue-heavy, in my opinion. With a bathroom, it is much worse. If possible, pack your gear in the rear to help balance it out. This will be easier on the tow vehicle, will improve handling, and will make it less likely to crack the frame of Scamp or cause damage to the coupler, hitch or other items.

Keep enough weight on the tongue to keep it stable -- about 10% of trailer weight is fine, unless you plan on towing at 80 MPH or higher... Which you shouldn't do, of course. In some countries (let's keep the anti-European sentiment out of this, please), it is normal to have only 4 or 5% tongue weight, but they also tow a lot slower than we do in the US. I like my tongue weight a little less than 10%, but I do drive slower.
