That's what I am looking for.

Can the middle dinette photo be done to accommodate an air conditioner? Over the hitch seems to be the only place left in my 13 ft. Scamp for it.

Hi Im installing a power converter into my scamp. It looks like yours is under the dinette, how do you like that location, does it get in the way under the feet?? Thanks
