So.,,pretty sure I got taken to the cleaners, and now I need advice before I go in and talk to the guys in the service department at a local camper dealer/shop.
I garage my Scamp
, and clearance is an issue. The only way we could fit it in was to remove the vent cover. It JUST fit like that.
I needed two things done by the shop. First, I asked that they remove the existing vent frame and cover the hole with a skylight whose height DID NOT EXCEED the original height of the the old vent frame. Done, no problem.
Second request was that they install a FF at the front of the Scamp
, again, not to exceed the height of the old vent frame. Since that part of the roofline is lower than the part where the vent was located, they said it wouldn't be a problem.
Well....I've had a FF that came factory installed in a teardrop camper before, and the interior and exterior profile looked NOTHING like this one.
First some interior shots:
Aside from the workmanship on this trim piece being shoddy, does this trim piece HAVE to be so thick? It's 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick. The guy said something about the screws not being long enough? My previous FF was flush with the ceiling around it.
Now for the exterior. Guess what won't even come CLOSE to fitting in the garage?!?! The only way we could get it in was to let the air our of the tires
, drop the tongue all the way to the concrete, and shove it in.
Advice, please? Is there another model FF that is lower profile? What can be done to remedy this?
