Trailer: 13 ft Scamp
Posts: 16
hello! could anyone with a 13ft scamp measure their table real quick and give me the dimensions (including the "angled dimensions" where it angles in so people can slide in and out easier)? i am making one out 1/2 (or 3/4 not sure yet) 9 ply white birch plywood but i dont have one to copy..

thank you very much!
andy

Hi Andy,
The rear table on our 16' is 42" x 30" wide. The front corners have a 10" radius and its 3/4" thick to match the rabbets molded in the benches.
I'm pretty sure the 13s are the same.

The original table was 5/8" thick MDF, 30" wide and 42" long with an 8-1/2 x 8-1/2" triangle cut out of the two forward-facing corners to allow people to slide through more easily. Lynne and I -- who are slender by today's standards -- felt the opening was too narrow to allow us to get up and down readily, so we shortened our table to 37" and that seems to maintain table space and allow comfortable access in and out of the dinette.

Good choice, moving to furniture-grade plywood over MDF. Not only is plywood stronger than the standard Scamp trailer table, it's much, much lighter. To maximize your weight savings I'd suggest making the table out of 1/2" plywood and build the edges and attachment points up with 1/8" thick solid hardwood, then your table would be the correct thickness, strong enough to sleep on, and much, much lighter than the "stock" Scamps table.

Another approach would be to buy 5/8" A-B plywood and apply plastic laminate (e.g. Formica) to the top and edges. Still lightweight, but easier to keep clean.

thanks for the replys! i like the idea of 1/2 ply with built up areas to 3/4, that would make it much lighter... i think one full size to 3/4 might be pretty heavy...

one more question, i do have the folding table hardware from scamp, but i've read on another post that they can be somewhat "rickety".. do you know if the chrome center support will make it much more stable or will the folding table hardware be ok?

thanks again!
andy

Our trailer went from the traditional Scamp fold-down table to a pedestal table in the center of a "U" shaped dinette. The pedestal table isn't bad, but it is more wobbly than the fold-down.
