In case anyone wants to know, here is some information about the weight
of a Scamp
After picking up our 16' Scamp
, we came home and took it to a CAT Scale for a weigh-in. This is the weight
of the Scamp
as it left the factory. No equipment or gear has been added yet. All water tanks/lines are dry. Both LP gas tanks are full.
of Scamp 16 was 2160 lbs
Tongue weight was 260 lbs
Weight of 2011 Ford Escape
tow vehicle with 2 passengers was 4060
It appears to me that the CAT Scales round off to the nearest 20 lbs. (Or maybe they round up to the next higher 20 lbs)
The Scamp is the Standard version with Layout #4, with the standard package options PLUS the following add on options:
3 Speed Roof Fan
Roof Mount AC
4.6 Cu Ft refrigerator
Dual gas tanks
2" receiver for bike rack
Wheel on jack
Group 27 battery
Splash guard on each side (fiberglass back splash over sink and stove)
There were a few other options that had no significant effect on the weight.
I weighed the tow vehicle with the Scamp attached, putting both TV axles on the front scale platform and the Scamp axle
on the second scale platform. I then detached the Scamp and weighed the TV by itself. These figures were used to calculate the above weights.
The TV with trailer attached (and 2 passengers) weighed 4320
The trailer weighed 1900.
The TV without trailer attached (and 2 passengers) weighed 4060.
