John, what about sleeping with your head streetside instead of curbside that way the drip only gets your feet? I'm sure others must have experienced this too and have a better solution. Isnt there some old saying about petting a cat backwards so "turn the cat around"?????

We don't know where to stow bedding either

Brian, we just picked up our Scamp 13 earlier this month in Backus and have it stowed for winter. I am grappling with this same question. I will be keeping an eye on this thread to give me ideas as well.

Sleeping bag can be stored by treating just like a throw pillow. Put in stuff sack it is just a round pillow standing upright in the corner of the dinette seat. Memory foam is a bit tougher if you have gone that route. Think it would need to be in two pieces to roll up to an easily storable size.


Now if you have the front couch.... stack those sleeping bags up on the couch and call dibs on nap time. Weather is crummy, a bit of reading and a nice nap sounds lovely.

We are four (front bunk layout) and use sleeping bags. We rarely take down the beds but have done it on a couple of bad weather days when we were staying in camp. Each person has a duffle big enough for their sleeping bag and pillow (much easier than stuff sacks!), so pack your own and throw it in the back of the SUV or stack them under the dinette against the back wall. They don't get in the way (much) there, and they make nice footrests.

That said, for two people in a front bath layout, I love Floyd's U-shaped dinette mod in post #8. The smaller table is easier to set up and take down, and the back makes a daytime napping spot while the table is set up (nice if you have a front bath). And the storage under the back seat is the perfect spot for bedding. BTW- I believe Scamp made the custom-sized cushion for that center back seat from matching upholstery at a reasonable cost. If you send a PM to Floyd, I'm sure he'd be happy to share more details.

Front Dinette option

We opted for a front dinette just for the bedding reason. We are having a custom mattress made now that we will now leave made in the rear.

In our previous 2011 Standard Front Bunk model we used to put the bedding in the back of our car and then bring it in every night.

I think from the photographs...you have a front bath model...so putting in the car may be an option

We just leave our bed made up. There are just the two of us. I have been working on a light take apart table. The table allows us to use the front bench as a work area / reading area. It can be placed in the door way to allow use of the stove, sink, and ice box. It is really quite handy. There is only one fastener, a wing nut. It has not been finished, so no photos.

We have the rear dinette set as a permanent bed. Maggie made a large bag from cloth and a plastic sheet. Sealed on 3 sides the forth closes with Velcro. During the day the bed becomes a large couch with a plastic sheet and cloth cover. The bag has the bedding and functions as a large pillow. The plastic makes everything wet dog proof. Raz

Is that a real thing? Wet dog proof sounds like something made up. Along the lines of jabberwocky or Unicorns.

Bedding Storage

We have a Scamp 16 and store our bedding over the rear dinette. WE built a full trailer width cabinet over the rear dinette. It has three doors. The center compartment handles all our bedding. The two end compartments contain our jeans.

You can see the building of this cabinet in the beginning of the following thread.

Most often we leave our bed set up because we cook and eat outside. If there is extended inclement weather we will set up the dining table. Pillows are stored in the back upper cupboard.Comforters are rolled around a core (such as a broom handle, heavy-duty cardboard roll from the fabric shop) and bound with straps and hung from side to side under the table resting on top of the benches. The mattress cover (2 lengthwise pieces) are rolled and bound with straps and stored in one, empty, dining room bench. In addition, I often have "throw blankets" about 50' x 60" I drape them over the dining room bench and couch cushions.

I also like the idea of stuffing everything into duffel bags which can double as "bolster pillows".

You may refer to my many previous posts regarding bedding by searching "Gilda bed" on the Google Search on the FGRV's "Search" button. Check out this one... The bed's not made...
