That's upsizing, not upgrading!
Of course you will have three more feet of trailer.
You will have more ground clearance as well.
You will have an extra step up for entry.
Slightly less stability in traffic at speed.
less garage clearance and space.
less access to drive-up windows
smaller bed width on standard 16.
bigger better brakes
on the 16.
side dinette could mean permanent bed and separate permanent dinette(for two)
Most importantly...If you're sure about your choice, you will have the satisfaction of having a near unique and practical camper which will give years of pride and service.
We have owned our 13Deluxe for 9 years now and it is still perfect for our needs and desires.We won't be upsizing anytime soon.
Think twice, then choose the "perfect sized" Scamp
