I really don't know. We haven't got electrical brakes for instance.

>> much made in Germany,

Some. Most trailers are on Al-Ko frame and axles (Ger). All fridges come from Electrolux (Dometic), all heating systems are from Truma (Ger). All toilets are from Thetford.

Scamp

We pulled a 13 ft Scamp through 42 States a cfe years ago with a Toyota 4 cyl PU Never had any problems even going back and forth through the mountains. Left New London Ct and didnt look back. Ended up in Florida. Sold the Scamp waited 2 years and bought the same one back and traveled back and forth to Maine pulling it with a old VW Van. It took a while to get up to speed with the VW but no problems.
