Towing with Toyota Tundra

Can I tow A 19ft. 5th wheel Scamp with A Toyota Tundra without hitting the back of the cab? I have been told (yes) by A couple of people and (no) by A couple of people so I desided to ask someone who knows. I am sure someone here knows the correct answer. If anyone is useing this setup do you need A extenison on the hookup? Thanks Johnny D. Dorsey

Towing a Scamp 5er

:wave Hi, John, welcome to the board.

I'm sure someone here knows the answer, but you know what I would do? I would call Scamp. I bet they could give you the definitive answer! 1-800-346-4962

I just love those Scamp 5ers. I don't have one, but if I was going the 5th wheel route, I would definitely look into it!

If we don't find an answer here and you do call Scamp, let us know what you found out, okay?

There is such A big choice it gets confusion as to which one to get. *Thank You Johnny D.
:chatter Johnny, Yes you can. We have a 5th wheel deluxe and tow it with our 2000 Toyota Tundra. The gooseneck hitch is mounted directly over the rear axle and the trailer does't even come close to the cab. We can jacknife 90 degrees. You can look at pictures at the url in my sig below.:E :E

:drums In other news...in 8 days we are leaving for a two month RV trip to Alaska. :steerLeaving here (Appleton, WI) on the Thurs. the 22nd. We will be stopping at the Scamp factory in Backus on Fri. the 23rd to pick up an additional cushion for the dinette. Then up to Canada and across to Calgary and up to Jasper. Anyone on the list along our route that would like a visitor just let us know. We promise that we won't overstay our welcome.:feet

Towing with a Tundra

There you go, John. Voice of experience speaking. Glad we caught Larry before he headed out. Yippppeee! Now you can get a scamp 5er!

Larry, boy that sounds like some trip you have coming up. It sounds fabulous.

BTW, Larry, you have some great pictures on your link!

I was going to ask Larry about the interior in his Scamp 5'er.

Gorgeous wood! Looks like Light Maple to me.

Is that an option or is it standard (how it comes from the factory)?

When you see Deluxe in the description of a Scamp, that means it has custom ordered hardwood interiors. Scamp offers birch and oak. At one time they offered maple. I'm not sure if they still do. Larry ordered some of his cabinetry after he purchased the Scamp. He went back to the factory for a retrofit.

It's birch and Benita is right. The Scamp deluxe has all wood cabinetry.
When we called to order ours they had gotten an order cancellation from the person that had ordered it so rather than wait the requisite 4 months we took it sight unseen and drove up the next day. We were very pleased with it except that it didn't have the bedroom cabinets so we drove the 444 miles back to Backus this spring and had them added.
