Hello Bobbie, I understand your concern with the Scamp's 7'-6" published exterior height. Deleting the hatch will not help. Reason is that right around 07-08 the factory had a fire. Can find the exact date as I have photos of the event. Molds were destroyed, When Scamp rebuilt the 13 mold, they decided to make it taller. This is why only pre-fire 13 ft Scamps can go through standard 7 ft garage door with regular tires
completely full of air with a little room to spare. I tried it in another person's house and same thing it goes right through.
This was one of my big requirements when I was went small trailer shopping years ago. Scamp was willing to omit the hatch, Casita
would not. Its funny as no amount of begging Casita
said over and over "our people are trained to cut the roof hole and they can not skip that step".
I love keeping my trailer at home and better yet in the garage where it's protected from theft and UV damage to the tires, window rubber seals and more importantly the fiberglass shell. it also helps with the neighbors and association people.
Unfortunately the Escape
we ordered now that we re retiring in a few months can not fit even with a bare roof. We will have to pay for outside storage and if not indoors buy a good quality cover $$$.
My door opens 7'-0" with the trim in place 6'-11-3/4". It goes in and out easily.
Should you decide to order new, they told me they are backed up to late December early 2017 deliveries. Here on the west coast home delivery is $2,000.
