No counter space.
Ft dinette could be made into bunks if you wanted.

Would be really cool if a manufacturer made a combination Fridge/Sink/Stovetop with all the wiring and plumbing inside.
Now there's a million $$ idea, kind of like those extra compact kitchenette's they have in motels, but with propane appliances. When are we going into partnership to start production?

(while we're on the topic of cool things to put into a trailer check out this fold away bunk unit:

Here's another kitchenette unit... for those who can't do without all the comforts of home, including the dishwasher

My father had a very similar design in his 13' Shasta. However, the kitchen went in the front right by the door to the closet. The closet was on the drivers side and was opposite the door and went to the front of the unit. That way he could have a closet; put in a marine toilet or portapotty and/or also put in a shower in that space. The back of his Shasta was configured like the Compact, Jr. - king size bed.

It also had cabinets all the around the top plus over the king size bed were two cots on metal poles that could put away in the back when they were not in use. That allowed 2 adults and 2 kids (even grown kids) to sleep in the trailer.

The one change I would have made to the trailer was to make the king size bed cushions different so that I could have the back cushions down like a bed and my bedding folded down there and the front cushions made for a small dinning table.

Kevin,
The bed measures about 78" by 53". Not quite as wide as you had hoped.

In this picture, you see a "loft" on the left built for two Boston Terriers above the foot of the bed.
Loreen,

We just purchased a 1998 Scamp. Would love to see yours in person some time. We live in Covington, Georgia. The cabinet work looks beautiful in the pics.

very cool program... I have many uses for such a tool. Autocad is great but the $4000 pricetag is a tad out of reach for me.

Here's an idea I had for a Boler/clone "Liberty meets Compact Jr." layout.

Quoting myself, from a post in this thread

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/in...howtopic=34113

(but going in a direction more appropriate to the thread I am in now), I said:

Quote:
For just me, I had a layout idea I really liked, but it wouldn't work without moving/removing the propane fridge, and I'd like to keep it where it is. That idea consisted of one ample (32" wide) single bed running lengthwise from the back on the driver's side, with the table more-or-less where it is now (a bit narrower) and then the original seat on the passenger side. Then the kitchen in front with a closet by the door. Original closet remaining as-is. This would give me my "main settee with table alongside at my right hand side" that I really like. Also, for two, the original across bunk could be used (taking down dinette table) and could be larger than the original one. (Original above-kitchen cupboards could remain, and support could be devised.)

The trouble with that plan is that there is only about 68" before I run into the fridge. Rats. It will stay just a plan for now, I guess.
The other thing is that I can't think of an easy way to re-establish the sidewall-shape support provided by the "wrought-iron" galley support. I suppose one could tab in a supportive arch across the overhead at the forward end of the table, but that would not qualify as "easy."

Also, one might bump one's head on the former over-galley cabinets if sitting down too aggressively.

Haven't solved the 'fridge issue either. There would be room for it under the front kitchen, but it would not be that fun to move a propane fridge, nor to have the vents on the front of the trailer. It would work fine for a slide-out cooler, or for a 110v or 12v fridge though.

Anyway, I just "drew" a layout plan to show what I was talking about (see, I do have a point ) And no, I'm not a computer drawing expert!

Just thought I'd throw it into the thread. I'm probably not about to remodel, but I do think about it from time-to-time

Well, a tape-measure "solved" one problem: A support bracket or partial wall at the forward end of the "big" bed would leave about the same fore-and-aft spread between supports as there is now (and would actually compensate slightly better for the placement of the closet and the door). That would put the new support just at the "aft" end of the little window over the stove (for thems as have one).

It's all so quick and easy on paper

Lots of good stuff here on this thread, reminds me of my old Scamp 13' that I put a two person dinette in the front. The guy I bought the trailer from ordered it without anything in the front , where a bath & closet would be. The wife and I still miss that little Scamp. I would love to build something from scratch, and I would design it so that there wouldn't be any rivets.

Another plan I thought of is to have a front sitting area and a side bunk (72"x30") Just cut the closet shelf in a stock 13' scamp to make a bunk. Keep a pole or brace on the edge to hold up the roof and have a flip up bed section by the door.
Keep the lower bed size at 76"x46"
Table is 2' wide with a seating area of 18"

Some great ideas! But, I camp differently than you. I do use all the amenities in my trailer, that's why I bought it. Otherwise, I could have purchased a used cargo trailer a whole lot cheaper and outfitted it to just be a hard-sided tent.
I'm with you Donna, the Eggcamper is layed out about perfect for my needs.
I'm just about $16,500 short of the $17,000 I need to get one.
