Over the past several days I've been looking at pictures I took of the grey water tank on Carol's 16-foot Scamp
at Demming, WA last year.
I had just purchased a Thetford 12 gallon portable grey water tank at Camping World in Burlington, WA on the way to the vintage trailer gathering so I could use my sink for the first time and the rest of the summer. I've included a picture of it under my 1977 13-foot Scamp
It was so fun and convenient to use my own sink! After looking at Carol's grey water tank I decided it would be so much more convenient to have a grey water tank installed under the floor of the Scamp
. Out of sight and permanently attached.
I will be ordering one from Scamp in the next few days. I'm getting ready to remove the frame from under my Scamp to install a new axle
and it will be the best time to install a grey water tank as well. I'm going to sandblast and paint
the frame as well.
I do have a question about the green hose attached to the grey water tank on the left (driver's side) of Carol's Scamp. Is this from the shower that is on the same side?
I think the two white pipes seen coming through the floor on the other side of the tank are drains for the fresh water tank and the hot water heater.
Does the drain for the sink enter the grey water tank through the floor into the top of the tank? I think the sink is on the right (passenger side) of the 16-foot Scamp. I don't see a hose attached on that side like the green one on the left side.
I've also attached a photo of the 10 gallon fresh water tank that was in my 1977 13-foot Scamp before I took it out to clean the interior. I had just removed the right side dinette seat to get to it. I'm pretty sure all Scamps have the fresh water tank in this location.
I haven't put the 10 gallon tank back in. I went out 8 times in my first season of camping last year and found carrying one gallon jugs of fresh water worked fine. I'd rather have the extra space for storage.
I wiped the mildew off the walls with Tilex before I started camping. It came of very easily and it is still very clean. I've wondered how many decades it has been since my Scamp was cleaned so thoroughly.
