We bought a 1991 Scamp
16 in FL this winter after using our son's Casita
16. We bought it on Craig's List. We looked at it for 15 minutes and gave the owner a downpayment.
The 16 was in excellent condition. No one had ever used the stove, the refrigerator
had just been replaced and the carpet looked almost new.
Like many small trailers they are not designed for full time users. Many of the storage areas do not have easy access, and beyond that there are areas that could be used for storage but have no access.
Our goals are to provide easy access to existing storage areas, to add access to existing potential storage areas and to add storage areas where there is none but where there could be storage.
In general we travel on the light
side, but we like everything to have a place and for no compartment to be stuffed.
So Far. We have added two drawers to the driver's side dinette. Each draw will contain a plastic storage bin with cover. Similarly the front center compartment of the couch also contains two identical plastic storage bins.
To the right of the couch's center storage compartment there is another storage compartment only accessible from the top of the couch. We have cut the front fiberglass and created an 18x18x8" drawer.
This variant of the Scamp
has two kitchen counters, one with the sink and the other with the stove and refrigerator
. On the stove side we have created a cabinet under the fridge
(18x10x5). On the sink side we have added two drawers. One is 12x18x5 and the other, in front of the sink, is 12x4x5.
We have plans to add overhead storage at each end of the trailer, to be covered in another posting.
As well we have added 6 additional electrical
outlets to the 3 that came with the trailer and a fourth breaker to the original 3.
I intend to photograph all changes and creat a document describing what we've done.
Having fun but tired,
