Bed size....

Being new to the fiberglass camper world, I am wondering if folks might give me some insight on bed size in vintage campers. True full size bed for the most part or would that be a generous term? Are there some models with larger beds than others? We are particularly interested in a 13' model. Thank you for your thoughts!

"Full size" is somewhat misleading. My Scamp's bed measures 44-45" wide. I understand they do have a larger 54" size if you are willing to give up some cabinet to get it.

Until recently Scamp has offered a 54" bed only in the Deluxe models, they now offer the 54" bed in standard models. In vintage Scamp Standards you will find the bed is 44" in all models.
If you can tolerate a rear entry trailer, many of them have the largest bed to interior size ratio.
Other than that, most conventional side entry fiberglass trailers offer only a 44" wide bed.
A vintage Trillium, being square, offers a bit more "roominess" even though the bed is no wider.

Christy,

AFAIK, the standard molded Scamp 16 does not yet have the 54" standard double bed option.
(Many of us wish that the 54" wide bed would be offered in the Scamp16 Layout 4.)
In the Scamp16, that option is only available in the "Deluxe".

Pictures of our 54" bed Scamp13 can be found in the later segments of the following thread.
Scamp Full Size Bed = Smaller Table Size

Sadly, I don't know/remember where to find pix of the interiors and beds of other brands. 😕

Good luck on your search! 😀

Welcome, Christy.

Dimensions may not be sufficient. Length and width can some times be misleading. For any that fit the your size requirements, I would look on the companies website to look at the layout. On many fiberglass trailers the bed corners are radiused such that you can't use the full length or width of the bed on one side.

There have been many posts on the site looking for ways to make these beds more workable.

Good luck in your search, and once again, welcome.

That was noticeable on early (vintage) Scamps, Bolers, LoveBugs and the like. When Scamp switched to the rear opening flat window, they squared off the rear of the mold to accommodate it. That pretty much eliminated the issue.
