Exactly, exactly, exactly!
I often say "love the one you're with"! It's doubtful I'll ever have MORE fun or make BETTER memories just because I have a new ETI custom built trailer. It's now LESS about those memories and more about my body/ needs. And YES, I know the difference between needs and wants. Lots of folks blend those...

As long as time.. and space, give you what you need NOW, love the one you're with. Make memories. OMG make memories, it's not about how many "feet" it's where you are right NOW and who you're with and what you're doing that's important.
Hi: Donna D... Just as long as your "feet" are planted firmly on the ground!!!

Well we're back from Backus, with our original 13' and keeping it. The 13' with a 54" bed wasn't worth loosing the larger closet and the 16' deluxe is just too pricy for 10" of bed. The $21k scared me off right away. Seems Scamp is just putting the big bed in the deluxe just for the higher profit for a year or two then I'm sure they'll have it as an option in all models. Thanks for all the helpful comments. Pete and Donna

I wouldn't want to sacrifice the closet space either. I'm comfy in the sofa bunk! But I know others like the larger bed.

21 grand? Forget it. Not in my lifetime. I've got my Scamper and unless a trade came along for a nice 16 deluxe I'm a happy camper.

Going in 15 minutes in fact! Gonna squeeze out a few more drops is summer.

Hope you enjoy your water heater! I've fired mine up once but never used yet. First summer with the Scamper.
