We have a basic (no fridg, air conditioner, water) Scamp
13 that weighs in at about 1600 lbs. We are very comfortable towing with our mini van with 3500 tow weight
Recently we considered going up in size to the 16. After visiting the Scamp
factory and seeing how huge they seem compared to our last generation 13 we decided that we really like our Scamp
13 and have no desire to go up a size.
We too like having the extra power. By keeping our weight
down we do have the option of a couple of 4 cylinder cars out there; not many by my standards, but we are more flexible than if we move to the 16 or even a heavily loaded 13.
I am also very glad that we have the standard 13 with bunk in front instead of the private toilet. I would love a privacy room, but much prefer the elbow room.
The 13 seems more friendly for two people to pass each other too, it just seems a bit larger in the center area.
The 13 will make a very adequate dog house.
