size of showers in Scamp

I don't yet own but have high hopes of getting a Scamp 16' with the side bath. Seems like the best layout for us. There will be enough room for us, our granddaughter and our little poodle. Layout four of the Scamp, is that a smaller bath than the ones that are up front in the other models?

Yes, the side bathroom is much smaller than the front bathroom in the 16' or the 19' 5th wheel.

As is mentioned, it's much smaller. But remember for every inch of space put into a bathroom it has to come from somewhere. I'd rather have a bigger bed or more counter space or a wider closet! Besides, with the sidebath you also get the front window... and that's a very, very nice thing to have.

The sidebath is completely functional. You can take care of business and get clean. I think that's all that really matters. YMMV

The side bath on the 16 &19 is completely on the upper floor. On a front bath the shower floor is on the lower floor and the shower area is also under the start of the trolley roof so you have about 4" more head room in the Front bath. In the Scamp 19 std. the roof rises for the front upper deck area so head room in the shower is not as big an issue as in a S-16 side bath. But in the front bath models some people have issues with the extra distance from the toilet seat to the lower shower floor. Bottom line if you are 6' or taller in a side bath S-16 you may sit down to shower.

We owned a Scamp 16 with a side bath. Sitting on the toilet our knees touch the wall. Shower for a tall person well you have to sit on the toilet. A front bath model would be better. I now have a Bigfoot 21 with a rear separate shower.

You don't have gallons and gallons of hot water on tap to be taking long showers anyway. Yes the bath is a little cramped but it gets the job done.

This is the conclusion I came to. I have yet to use the shower or toilet in mine after two years of use, anyway. Until the camp setups are nasty or broken, I won't. If that happens, then I'll be glad to have my dinky bathroom to use.

I find my couch much more useful than a bigger bathroom.

Yes, this is an issue of comfort. I solved it by making a false floor out of 1/4 inch plywood with ribs glued to the underside for stiffness and applied length of 1/4 thick foam tape around the edges (underside) so it does not scratch the shower liner. It stays in place and is light and easy to take out to use the shower. The Scamp enclosure has a narrow shelf along three sides of the well.
I did not invent it, somebody else here deserves the credit (do not remember who, so take credit where credit is due).
