That explanation does not entirely make sense to me but that particular unit was made without them and I have seen others too with no real rhyme or reason behind it?
Maybe with no roof air they are not needed?
Ed did your 16' have roof AC? wondered if it could be that the ones they build up roof at the factory to support an roof AC dont need it.

No mine didn't but I also asked Scamp if that was the reason and they said no?

On the other hand I also asked Scamp questions and got bizarre answers about a lot of other things too?

The fact that I don't see any place where it looks like Cricketts pictured unit had the supports removed from suggest to me that it did not have them?
Crickett,are there obvious points where it seems the supports were attached before? They are not concealed in any way normally.

Isn't this unit you are looking at an '05 too?

A quick call to Scamp on Monday and you too can be even more confused!

That does not make sense. Dollarwise that would amount to an awful lot of parts and labour to install something for over 40 years if it was not needed and had a negative cosmetic value.

Spiral supports

I don't like the black metal supports.
We painted them white-makes the trailer look a little less dated inside.
Advice from our son-in-law--who works with fiberglass--you will be sorry if you take them out.

I suspect that Trillium should have put something similar in their 4500 model. It is not obvious, but there is definitely a depression in the roof above the kitchen on both of my 4500's. I may yet add a support on either side of the kitchen.

LOL it sure doesn't. Scamp isn't known for adding decorative items in their trailers ;-) not to mention having seen what happens with a snow load & no supports I would suggest that who ever at scamp suggested it want needed probable shouldn't have answered the question

Mine will make 3, if you are counting. Looking forward to see how you do it.
