This is the way I would like to have a 13' Scamp built for 2 adults.

No stove -- No sink-- No toilet--build a Bigger bed ( 5' 5"wide and 6' 2" long)--Still have the bed area so you can have a table and more storage area. Use a portable stove for cooking and a plastic tub for doing dishes. We very seldom use the stove in the scamp. We always cook and do dishes outside. If you need a toilet use a portable one and hide it in a cabinet. Space is at a premium in a 13' Scamp. I would rather have a bigger bed than all that other stuff.
When you go camping you should be outside anyway. Unless it's raining.

Kevin, IM single but completely agree with you!!! i do not use my sink or water, my stove is removed, as was the heater and frige. No toilet.

WHen Scamping we cook outdoors, and i usually, if its hot, have a rousing game of ring the cooler round the trailer a few times. =) keep it out of the sun. Funny I love my scamp for what it is and would not have it any other way.

As we used to say, back in the self-focused '70s, "thank you for sharing".

Back in the '70s we had a Compact Jr. that was layed out similarly. It did have a small 2-burner cook-top and a tiny sink and an ice-box.

We were more into hiking and climbing then, but did take a couple of trips zig-zagging across the country from coast to coast. It provided us with what we needed to see the country cheaply.

But I wouldn't want to go back to it from our Scamp.

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

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 love it Kevin, I'm guessing many on the site might not agree with you, but again we all camp differently.

I pulled my stove, my furnace, my sink, my icebox, everything out of my 72 Boler American and have been working on the reconfig. I am building around my plastic containers. For dishes, for food, for my hobbies - mostly rock-climbing gear. I have a pretty LARGE Vendor Tent I travel with... 10x20' so yes that gives me 200 s.f of outdoor cooking/eating space... needless to say, we only use the Boler for resting at night.

I am going to spend a bit more time looking at your drawings, I always love talking to people that have really made them custom to their likings, and how they camp.

Keep us update, and I'll try to post some of my most recent configs.

Scamp did/does have this floor plan. It has kitchen stuff in it tho.

We have seen a couple of them posted here, but I can't remember what it was called. It is a deluxe style tho. Nice wood and cozy looking.

Here's a post showing the front: Where to get professional mods?

Perhaps you can get Lorene to post more pics/information.

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.

There is a LOT of storage. Both those cabinet areas go all the way to the left wall under the counter. (Great for items that are used less often but still pretty easy to get to. Here is the upper cabinet in use - my "kitchen."

Sadly, there is no dishwasher and no washer/ dryer.

I try to load the trailer conservatively for travel. No water in tanks. If I bring a lot of canned goods I put them in the tug. This trailer weighs 1840 ready to go for one person. I know that's hard to believe. I had it weighed twice. Unhooked from the tug.

For me, this is a very comfortable and practical layout.
