Ah, thanks, now I get it.
They're the same system... eTrailer sells the stock version, part-by-part if you want, while Scamp is selling the whole setup, complete with modification to mount a ball.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

One other reason why I chose Jared's idea is the fact that no one else could pull my trailer for me if my tow vehicle broke down on the highway. Fifth wheel is standard in the RV industry

Yes, if you want another RV owner or light commercial hauler to do it, you need a fifth-wheel or a 2-5/16" low-mounted ball coupler. If you want a tow truck to move it, the stock Scamp setup should not be a problem:
