Scamp 13 with front bunk

Has anyone modified a Scamp 13 with front bunk to a full time front bed? Is it large enough for a 5' 9" adult to sleep comfortably?

Thinking of this option with a chemical toilet and outdoor shower instead of a full bath. Thoughts?

I like the idea. I have a Boler and have comfortably napped on the front gaucho, but I'm 5'6". I think you could sleep longways(spine perpendicular to the axle) if you put your feet under the dinette. Is this plan just for one?

Scamp 13 with front bunk

5'9" would be close. I'm 5'8" and I sleep on the lower bunk most of the time. Not a lot of room to spare, but I'm comfortable. All you'd have to do to make it a permanent bed is remove the upper bunk (just a few screws) and maybe upgrade the mattress if desired. I'd hang onto the original set-up for the next user, though.

An outdoor shower can't be used everywhere- but places that have rules about grey water dumping are more likely to have public showers. And if not, you can always wash up with a dishpan and washcloth.

Under what conditions do you plan to use this set-up?

My 5'9" daughter sleeps on the top bunk and my 6'1" son sleeps on the bottom bunk. I don't think it is very roomy, but it is usable.
