One other thing to consider: The Scamp factory burned down a few years ago. They've rebuilt their factory since then and turn out a trailer that is built just as well as any they made before the fire, but they did make one very welcome change in the 16' trailer you should know about: they increased the ceiling height. So, when you are touring, do make sure you know whether the trailer you're looking at a low-ceiling model built before 2006 or a high-ceiling unit built after.
Just so this is very clear....
Although the newer post-fire Scamps are taller inside than the pre-fire Scamps even the pre-fire 16's are taller than a 16' Casita.

By several inches according to my HEAD!

Some people don't mind the shorter interior but it was a deal breaker for me.

You may consider a 17' Escape


It can be picked up in Sacramento, CA. I understand.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
