Installing wet bath

We are currently looking at an older Scamp 13' with the couch in the front. Is it possible to convert the front to a wet bath? has anyone done this? We would appreciate any responses.

thank you,

You should be able to do it, it's a scamp option for a front bath on a 13'er.

You may want to look at a scamp with the front bath and then copy the setup for plumbing, etc. May give you a better understanding as to where and how Scamp normally routes everything. And since they still make the front bath option, you can get some parts if needed from them.

Installing wet bath

You should probably talk to the folks at Scamp. Here's what they have posted on their web page:

Q. Can a bathroom be added to a Scamp without a present bathroom?
Can a bathroom be added to a Scamp without a present bathroom?
A. In America anything is possible. But, some things are not easy or necessarily wise to do. When originally building the trailer all trailers requiring bathrooms are laid out for bathrooms before anything else is installed. Water lines are run, wiring is run, and fabric is installed to allow for correct installation of the shower and toilet. This can be difficult to accomplish after the fact. Also, when we started putting in front bathrooms we changed the frame up front to allow for the black water drain from the toilet. Without this frame change the front of the trailer cannot use the present toilet or the fiberglass shower floor. So, at Scamp we have no instructions on how to add a bathroom and shower after the fact, nor do we do so. There have been several enterprising fellows who have gone to the trouble to do so themselves, so it is possible.

I also looked hard at doing this in a 16' Side Dinette and the real problem was getting the floor pan to create the shower.
Scamp will not ship an item this big and fragile and so I looked to alternatives of my own.
I fashioned a laundry room sink into a suitable pan and was in the process of getting it installed when I found a Casita and bought it and I sold the Scamp as it was.

Good Luck if you try it but it will be much easier if you need one to buy it that way.
