We've done over 200 tours of our Scamp
16. Often finding people in parking lots waiting for us to come out of stores.
The trailer alone really doesn't say much to most people about us. True many people are interested in our "cute" little trailer and are always surprised by how much is in it. Though most people are amazed by it's 'fullness' few can imagine living in it for a month never mind a year. Typically our Scamp
is no bigger than their bathroom.
Really spending a year in a Scamp
16 is also not imaginable for many on this forum with larger trailers becoming more dominant at least at Escape
trailers, with the demise of the Escape
13(?) and 15.
People's attitude changes significantly once the discussion moves from the trailer to your travels. Very few people we've met have traveled extensively, actually even many of our Escapee friends have not been to some of the places we've been, definitely a little trailer increases the possibilities. The reality is we can go everywhere a big rig goes, but they can't go everywhere we go.
Most people leave our trailer wanting a fiberglass trailer of some variety, at least as they walk out the door. They may like it but most I suspect think we're the odd, but happy, couple. They can not begin to understand how much the smallness of our trailer contributes to our happiness.
It definitely says we're different. For most different is not good, at least not attainable for them. There's tremendous inertia against change even when it's good for you.. consider the overweight, the smokers, the drinkers,....
We're one of the happiest odd couples you will meet. Of course we've met many others, many on this forum. There is something special about our little trailers...
