Almost everything is optional in a Scamp, so they can be very basic if you want. The walls are covered in marine headliner, not carpet, though it does have a carpet-like feel.

My personal choice for minimalist solo travel would be a Scamp 16' Layout 4. I'd use the small front bunk for sleeping, skip the wet bath package and just put a porta-potty in the small side privacy room for emergencies, and leave the large rear dinette set up for daytime use. It has more galley space and storage than most other trailers its size for long-term use.

Alternatively, just get a Scamp 13' Layout 1. You give up the privacy room/wet bath and galley/storage space, but you still have the same small front bed for sleeping and large rear dinette for daytime use. There is a compartment for a small porta-potty.

If you want something even more simple and customizable with smooth fiberglass walls, hose-off floors (nice with dogs), and a cool, retro vibe (but not inexpensive), check out Happier Camper HC1.

+10 Best shot at getting something basic you can customize in a 13 foot size is Scamp. Their standard trailer comes with almost nothing: no heat, no bath, no frig, no A/C, etc.

Do realize that the cabinets inside any of the molded fiberglass trailers provide structural support for walls and roof. So removing all the cabinets will require careful consideration of how best to support the structure.

Happier Camper is an exception. The empty shell is self-supporting, which is why the interior is fully customizable.

Lil Snoozy is also self-supporting, and you can order an empty shell to build out as you like (called the Lil Hauley). If you order the finished camper version, though, your customizations options are more limited.
