I do not think the Scamp has Marine grade plywood. Seems like the cheap stuff from Home Depot to me other than the layer of protection on the bottom.

Considering the how important to the life of the trailer and how hard replacing the whole thing, it's one of my biggest disappointment in Scamp design and construction. The welded on axle being another. Both things that could be done so much better for little added expense. I know it's hard to stay in business building these things, but still!
