For me, this is a very comfortable and practical layout.
Thanks for the shots, Lorene. It's enlightening to see just how much personal comfort you can fit into a small trailer with a little thought.

This topic is very timely for me. I've done a lot of reconfigurations to make my 13 foot Burro a friendlier place for sleeping (and you can look 'em up) yet I (we) are still not content. True, if I were not 6 ft 7 and my other half not 6 ft 3 by now we'd be satisfied with my changes. The continuing agony of de feet, and de hips, or where they can fit, is our trouble

Taking stock:
  • Don't need no dinette table to break down for sleeping. We like having a ready-made bed. Hell, if we want a dinette, we'll stay in a motel. Anyway, I don't play Parcheesie.
  • Also never use the sink -- washing things outside in a 5-gallon bucket does us nicely. I feel safe enough brushing my teeth at the campsite lav and I sleep better after a walk.
  • Never needed a refrigerator. A 60 gallon upright cooler with wheels is just fine.
  • Setting up the porta-potty for those nocturnal senior emergencies leaves minus-zero floor space.
  • We always use our propane stove. But that can be re-located.
  • No way we lay out the bucks and kick it up a notch to a bigger trailer.
  • When I kick the bucket my wife can roll the thing over a cliff, or sink it in the swamp, for all I'll care.
I therefore have begun thinking the unthinkable; that is, taking a much harder look at those Burro molded built-ins restricting how we bed down. For now, it is clear, they are the major impediment to a pleasant night. If we were average in height we could sleep cross-wise happily. But, we're not.

Drastic surgery is beginning to make sense to me. Not that I'm quite ready to tackle this job, of course. Cutting out that massive fiberglass cooking monolith does creep me out a little bit.

But thanks, Kevin, for starting this thread. It gives me more to chew upon. Those floor plans you showed are great. Found myself wishing there was one that employed sleeping the length of the trailer instead of the width. What computer program did you use to make them? I am now busy with pencil and graph paper drawing some floor plans of my own.

Kevin, I totally dig the layout. Because our sleeping hours are about one hour offset Lynne and I really like having a separate bed and dinette, but if we were OK with having a single bed/dinette setup . . . yours is a great layout!

Lorene: Your trailer is awsome!

Lorene,
Your Scamp is gorgeous & I envy you having all that storage space! This is not the standard Scamp Deluxe, is it? I've seen other SDs but the layout was the usual plan, just done in wood instead of fiberglass. Was this your own design?
Sandra

Thank you all for your kind words. It is a beautiful trailer and I am very fortunate to have it.

Sandra, I bought it on eBay. The only thing I can take credit for is the curtains (and the doggie bunk which is now removed.)
I think this is called a Scamp Custom Deluxe and it must have been designed and ordered by someone who had a lot more $$$$$ than I have!!! Besides all the usual extras, it came with nice tweed upholstery, awning with walls that attach with velcro, a back bumper bike rack, oh, and these lovely cloth snap-on window covers to protect my little Scamp from -what, sun?? sand?? frostbite??

Hey Lorene;

Beautiful Scamp. The A/C install looks unique also. Any chance of detail pics of the venting / baffles etc?

I'm with DonnaD. When I sold the Burro, I pledged no more hundred yard dashes at 2am so I've gotta have a latrine. The addition of a sink to your design would seem easy enough to do and might make your life a little easier someday since the plumbing is all there anyway.

Lorene, I LOVE your layout! I could easily live with that (IT IS BEAUTIFUL!) as I use mine mainly for sleeping anyhow.
I do love having an inside potty, but a porta pot would do. I love your counter space, you found a beautiful camper. That doggie bed could become another shelf (for maybe a TV at night or during a rainy day). The dogs would end up sleeping with me anyhow. No way I could keep them up there with me below them. LOL
Thanks for sharing the pictures with all of us.
Keven, I like your ideas also. I think Scamp should offer this as an option on its website. I bet they would build a few more of them quickly. This is the ideal one person Scamp. It is a private little house on wheels all rolled into one room. I LOVE IT!

Actually, Scamp does offer modified floorplans as Custom Deluxe models. They say that they will build any configuration you want, as long as you agree to their custom pricing. They will work with you individually, but it will be a custom order.

I was going to say that.

That looks pretty close to the front-sink Surfside layout.

I think this design could work for a regular 13'. Keeping the front the same with the couch/bunks. The cabinet across from the door could have a fridge under and a sink/cooktop combination on top? Plumbing would have to be pretty creative and compact. Would be really cool if a manufacturer made a combination Fridge/Sink/Stovetop with all the wiring and plumbing inside. Overhead cabinets all the way around. And the bigger dinette/bed in back. I think I would even like this if it had a regular size bed and the trailer was made a foot or two shorter.

Myron Leski your question on post 17
I used Google Sketchup http://sketchup.google.com/ very easy program to learn and it's FREE. After you download the program, download my scamp model at http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/det...amp;prevstart=0 you can look at all the details of a stock scamp interior.
