Our Scamp 19' 5th wheel has a bolt on hitch adapter that makes it into a bumper pull. It's the perfect place to store a big storage tub and generator and allows us to keep the camper shell on our little Tacoma. I installed some airbags ($250) to level out the ride.

The hitch adapter is custom made. It bolts on so it can be removed in case I want to go back to 5th wheel mode. It wouldn't cost too much to fabricate but it might be hard to find someone who has experience with trailers and who is willing to take on the liability of making something like this.

Sorry we already had to move into the Scamp so we had to get rid of everything that was removed.

What a nice redo it really makes the trailer look larger. The cabinets and counter top really set off the kitchen.

Thanks! I can't wait to get some more time this week to get the sink and the rest of the flooring installed.

This hitch was made by a guy who does body work and custom auto manufacturing by day. It bolts on with 8 bolts so it can easily be removed in case I ever want to go back to 5th wheel mode. I would make sure your "friend who you bought a stick welder for years ago" really knows how to make good welds, you don't want this thing letting go while on tow, it would probably destroy the camper at best and cause a major accident at worst.

Our dinette area is nearing completion. We have had lots of help from family along the way. New curtains thanks to mom, new dinette table thanks to step-dad, and new Denim cushion covers thanks to grandma.

I'm not sure of the tongue weight, I need to figure it out. So far I've only had to pull it an easy and flat 250 miles to our semi permanent winter location. I pulled it with a '96 V6 Tacoma with airbags installed in the back and aired up to about 70psi to level the ride. I'm using a stock class 3 factory tow hitch with a brake controller hooked up. It pulled just fine with no bad characteristics that might be associated with a really high tongue weight (I do know what that is like too ).

This spring I plan on towing it 1500 miles over some big mountains to get it to our summer location. I plan on going with empty tanks and with as much stuff loaded behind the axle as possible including 2 bikes on a hitch rack hanging off the back.
