The interior looks very nice. That's a lot of work. As far as the hitch, I assume you did the mod because the fifth wheel wouldn't work with your Toyota?? I have to confess the weight that far back would be a concern. Especially the effects on steering. Let us know how it works out. Enjoy your "new" rig, Raz

Actually the 5th wheel hitch will fit fine on our Tacoma. The hitch adapter was fabricated by the previous owner who ran an auto body repair shop. We bought it with the bumper pull adapter and the 5th wheel hitch in case we want to go back to 5th wheel mode. The reason we decided to try the bumper pull adapter is it allows us to keep our camper shell on our Tacoma which is critical to our business, both while traveling and once we are at our destination. Our other option was to pull a smaller bumper pull trailer, but having a dedicated bed and dinette makes the 5th wheel much more attractive for full timing. I have an older but very well maintained Tacoma with new springs/shocks and airbags, and so far it has no problem pulling the Scamp.
