I’ve been lurking on this forum since October, reading posts going back years and years, and want to say “THANK YOU!!!” for all the wonderful information. Wanting to reciprocate, very concerned about SAFETY and knowing that trailer weight
is a Hot Topic
, I chose to take my brand new Scamp
13’ to the Certified Public Scale at Cadman in Redmond, WA. This scale reads in 20 lb. increments.
13’ Std. Layout 2 w/front bath weighs 1500 lbs.
; I also found I had 220 pounds on the tongue, as it was 1280 lb. when hitched to the TV. There were no added items in the trailer; it was 'as picked up from factory' condition.
13’ Std. Layout 2 w/front bath including the following was onboard:
Shower and marine toilet
Atwood 6 gal. gas hot water heater
for Roof Air Conditioning
(Scamp will do this for NO additional charge!)
1.9cf 3-way fridge
16M BTU furnace
with blower & thermostat (NEW digital thermostat – Very Nice!)
Series 27 battery
12” x 18” Clear window above Range
Two rear side cabinets (NO front or rear cabinet)
3-speed Fantastic Fan
Outside GFI 110V Outlet
1 Filled Propane
– reading light
on each rear side cabinet
2nd Door in closet (this is the small door which opens to the wheel well)
Extra Outlets – two 12V and one 110V (NOTE
12V outlet is included as standard!)
Bathroom now comes with small roof fan; no window, no gravel shield
Here’s what I declined and is NOT onboard:
Sewer Hose Tube
Hatch, as I chose to have the Air Conditioning
Not significant in weight
, but I also chose NO decals nor pinstripes inside and outside.
ALSO, I hope the above lists might help a new Scamp
purchaser with option ideas. I am VERY thankful for all the info I read before finalizing my Scamp build. One thing I’d now add to the ‘DECLINE’ list: unless it is structural, which I don’t think it is, I would NOT have the clothes rod installed in the closet. It’s another rivet on the outside, and the rod is oriented front to back.
PS: I’ve already removed the dinette table and all mounting brackets - 28 lbs.! Pics and info later…
