Carl,

I have modified my younger son's Casita for more storage and my younger son's Scamp 13 for more storage. There is plenty that can be done in any of them.

What we did not like about the Casita 16 is that it is only 5'10" high inside. We considered the Casita 17 but it was too heavy for our Honda CRV.

I'm sure your 19 has plenty of room for increased storage.

Carl,
Somewhere you asked me about our Scamp's layout. One thing we've done that gives a bigger feel is to make a smaller table. It makes it easier to sit at the dinette and makes the whole trailer seem larger. Our table folds on itself and is 24 x 30" folded.

We also got rid of the existing Formica covered OSB table and used pine, it's lighter and looks better.

We find the table is adequate for meals/

Norm,
Thanks for your wise advice! I can see from this thread that you have made many good changes to your Scamp! It is too bad that you can not consult with Scamp and greatly improve there line of campers. Are you every going to be going back to Missouri, any time in the future? If, so we would love to meet you some place for a little visit! I agree with the others on this forum that you just need to copy your replies from the forum and put in a book! I would be the first one to buy it!!! It would be an Amazon best seller!!!!
Please keep writing and giving advice!!!

Carl

Carl, this year we'll be in FL for the winter but next year we'll be doing a loop of the USA. We often stop to visit friends in MO who live near Branson. I'll let you know.

Let me add another “Thanks” (and post) to this mega-thread. Reading it all the way through gave me the strength to put a saw to my Scamp 16 to mod it to my needs. I have not done anything too permanent, and have saved all the stuff I took out. But a few hours over several evenings and weekends, some scrap wood and a few screws and our Scamp will better suit the way we use it. I will get some pics and start another thread someday.

Unfortunately, due to my usual mode of operation there are not any "before" photos. However, if you have seen one factory Scamp 16 layout 4 then you have already seen the "before" (actually 26 years before) condition of my Scamp.

Tim, I'm like you, our Scamp is 23, and I usually jump in without before pictures. When people ask for pictures I very often have to go out and take them, though I'm happy to take pictures of the details for those that ask.

I truly wish I was a better carpenter but the stuff usually works.

Clothes Line

Our clothes line is made with 3/4" plastic pipe. The two side pieces slide into a C bracket that holds the pipe against the frame member. When the pipe is inserted into the C bracket it is stopped by a screw in the side of the pipe when the screw reachs the C bracket.

The plastic cross member has an elbow on each end and simply slips onto the two side members. The piece of clothes line provides tension between the two side pieces. There is a hook on each end of the clothes line. These hooks go into eyelets in each side member.

This plastic cross bar and the clothes line should provide plenty of room to dry our towels and bathing suits.
When you go to post 108 of this thread you can see the picture of the clothes line. It was designed for 2 bathing suits and two towels but could easily be expanded with more lines.

Dear Honda,

Thank you for referring me to post 108 for the clothesline. Might you have close up pics of what the C bracket looks like and how you hook this up exactly?

Also love your bumper box is a go for me? Do you know the post number for this mod? I love your ideas , your creativity and that you share!

Wendy

Thank you Honda for your kindness. The bumper box looks like it might be a contico truck box from lowes? Would love to know how you attached that as well.

Many thanks again,
Wendy
