Mike if you have not already ordered one you might want to seriously consider asking Scamp to install the Fantastic Fan in your new trailer. As others have suggested they work really well and are low power draws and for many of us its a real good substitution for an AC system when dry camping. If you really need it you can have the AC added now or later but of all the things I added to my trailer the Fantastic Fan was the big plus. The other was the adding of a solar system.

Listen Sun, be carefull adding that Solar System... I can see maybe packing Pluto in there... but jumpin' Jupiter those gas giants would be a challenge! You might be able to tow it with Saturn or Mercury(A Comet maybe)! Snacks shouldn't be a problem...the best candy on Earth is from Mars.
Pack everything well for a balanced load or Uranus could end up with Asteroids.

Hey Mike... welcome to the club! I just picked up a 1977 Scamp this spring and have already completed some convenient upgrades to make it more habitable in the NC heat and humidity. Here's what I've found helpful so far...

Solar recharging system for the trailer battery? Not yet but soon I hope...
TV antenna? Installed a Winegard RS-2000 amplified antenna
Small, 12V TV? Installed a NAXA 15.6" 12 volt flat screen TV
Cover for outdoor storage (Arizona desert)? Not yet because we store our Scamp under a carport
Air conditioner? Installed a Frigidaire FRA052XT7 A/C in the closet area (Installed exhaust / intake vents and drain too)
Pop-up canopy? Installed Dometic Trimline 8' canopy

The additions I've installed were not too difficult but did require some modification to the outside shell... mostly riveting and adding vents for the AC. Good luck and have fun!!

I talk about it in this thread:
Solar Charger and Panels

These work for me but others have a different opinion about their quality. While I did buy an extra charge controller for a permanent mount in the battery box, I also use the one that came with the system on a separate battery that I take along when boondocking.
The Harbor Freight solar panels are currently $159 with coupon
