5th wheel bumper pull

As Pete says, even if converted, you would have to consider the approximate 600 pound tongue weight of the Scamp 19, which can be handled by a hitch over the axle in the bed of a truck but by a conventional receiver hitch.....
IMHO, asking for big problems.

a year or 2 ago i was camped with a guy (from florida as well as i remember) who had converted a scamp 5er to bumper pull. he extended the frame and converted the space under the bed to storage. he said he had no problems towing (he'd made it from florida to sc). he towed with a full size pickup.
