Scamp 19 questions

Hello forum,

I have just learned about the Scamp 19. What I need to learn about is how to hook up to a standard gooseneck or 5th wheel. I have a B&W turnover-ball and Companion 5th wheel.

Any/all suggestions welcomed.

Dennis

You might want to also look at the Escape 5.0TA.

Scamp 19 uses a ball and coupler, Escape is a true 5th wheel.

All,

Thank you for the info. It appears that a dedicated hitch is needed for the Scamp. This unfortunate when your truck has a gooseneck and/or 5th wheel.

I have two options I am investigating:

https://www.scampowners.com/forums/s...seneck-adapter
(still waiting on a PM reply)

https://andersenhitches.com/Catalog/...onnection.aspx

The other thought was; is there a plate assembly that could be mounted to the top of a 5th wheel lower portion?

Dennis

You could have an adapter fabricated that drops down into your gooseneck receiver on one end and a 2" ball at the other to connect to the scamp. It would probably need some lateral support similar to your current companion hitch. Or attach a 2"ball to your current hitch. The other option is to modify the trailer to attach a kingpin or true gooseneck. Their is one thread with A removable kingpin adaptor. What type of truck do you have? I had to lift my Scamp 19 severe inches to clear a modern full size truck.

Here are pictures of an "Adapter" if you will and the parts needed to fabricate the "Adapter" to mount on the Scamp 19 factory hitch that will allow you to use a "Gooseneck" ball hitch setup in the bed of your truck.

Pretty simple, cheap to build and free's your bed of the clutter of a "Fifth Wheel" Scamp hitch setup.

I have a 19.
My hitch pins to the rails in my truck bed.
I have had 2 tow vehicles and never a problem with the Reese Hitch.
The Hitch is adjustable vertically.
If the Hitch is an old type it would give you problems this wheel wells.
You can see the new type at Scamps website.
Enjoy!

This is the option that looks promising. I have PM'd the original poster to get details.
(I don't have a Scamp 19 yet to measure details)

I have a gooseneck and 5th wheel configuration (B&W Turn-over Ball & Companion Slider)
