Scamp13 bed board storage, where??

Question,


Other than placing it under one of the dining area seats, I am wondering where Scamp13 owners store the extra bed board during the day?
There has to be some really good ideas on this. Lets hear them.

We cut our "table" down, and made a new board to fill the front half.
Added a table post. Now, the board became our dinette table.
The other half stayed down and we just flipped our bedding (sleeping bag) back.
Modified the cushions to serve as seat and backrests.

Hi Wayne,


I am guessing that the Parkliner and the Scamp13 are somewhat different in size. Have no idea about the interior looks of the Parkliner. Could you post some pictures on what you did.



Thanks,
Jack

Easy. We stand it up to the left of the toilet, along with the sink cover and a cutting board. It rides quite well there and is never in the way.

No pics. that mod was done on our first Scamp 13, two trailers ago.
The Parkliner is a 15 ft, w/ side dinette and queen size bed.

Iíve seen where some people put it under the table as a little shelf between the benches against the back wall.

Jon,


That might work with the older smaller width beds. We have the wider bed, so that board is now wider. I would like to some how slide the extra board under the table area so that it is held in place by a couple of Z brackets that are almost the width of the table. Its somewhat bulky to maneuver.



Has anyone out there done this?

Scamp13 bed board storage, where??

Actually itís folks with the wider bed Iíve seen doing it. The same question came up in one of the Scamp FB groups and a number of people posted pics. But your plan seems feasible, too, as long as you place it where you wonít catch your knees on it getting in and out of the dinette.

The smaller dinette has a one-piece table, so itís not an issue.

If it were me, Iíd ditch the OEM table entirely and convert the whole thing to a U-shaped dinette with a permanent seat across the back and a smaller pedestal table in front. The rear seat creates a nice storage space underneath to store bedding during the day.

It will work with the smaller dinette, too, and if I am able to order a 16íer in a couple of years as I hope, I will have Scamp do the cushions differently to accommodate the conversion.

My list of deletes and changes is quite long and getting longer. When it comes to accommodating them, Scamp is champ!

Hi Silas,


Since I have the bathroom up front I do not have that option. It seems so far the only options are.

1) under the seating cushions in the dining area, where I have been storing it.
2) In the bathroom against the wall to the left.

3) Figure some way to attach Z brackets to the underside of the table to store it, without causing it to limit the leg seating area that it occupies.

On our 13' big bed, we push it back against the rear wall of the camper. In that position we store out bedding under it. The top side we use as a daytime shelf. It is nice to have a place to store the bedding. Usually it is just Lilly and I camping, but on many occasions we have seat for adults there for meals.

Hi Bob,


Could you please post a picture or two showing how that looks. I am having a hard time trying to imagine how that could work out. Much appreciate it.


Thanks,


Jack

Jack,

Our 13' Scamp is in storage and I don't have a picture that shows the extension placed at the rear of the camper with the bedding stowed under it. Remember, this a big bed model. Perhaps I can verbally explain it.

If you were to put the dinette table in position for use and place the extension at the rear camper wall resting between the two benches, it would form a shelf. (so far, all you have done is raise the table and move the bed extension rearward). Then the bedding can be folded and stored under the bed extension, the bedding is all but hidden from view.

It works for Lilly and I.

Jack, on our 13’ Scamp with the large bed option, I ditched the original table and extra board set-up, and made a hinged table that gave us the desired small table for everyday use, and the option to expand it for when we had company. It sure made converting from table to bed a snap. To view photos, “click” on my name in our Avatar and go to our albums (one album is for our Lil Snoozy and one is for our Scamp). Best of luck.
