Great information from everyone. It appears that the 13' - even though I had initially considered it too small - MAY be able to meet our needs in the correct configuration. Thanks to rdickens for introducing the CLAM screen tent shelter. The 1960's Nimrod popup we had as children had a canopy with screen sides we called the "add-a-room" - a feature I would love to be able to replicate. The screen tent may do just the trick.

Sorry for the delayed response ... we had gone to church and out to lunch.

Jim -

So far, the CLAM has stood up to everything we've thrown at it.
(Prior to coming up with the 1660 Mag screen room/tent, CLAM Outdoors
[Rogers, Mn .. near Minneapolis] had manufactured similar ice fishing
shelters that had to stand up (unsheltered from the wind) on frozen lakes.)

It was actually pretty windy on the first day we arrived at the Kansas
Eggstravaganza rally and it rained many afternoons while we were at
the Oshkosh airshow.

There are reinforced grommets for tent pegs at the absolute bottom
corners of each of the CLAM's sides. In addition, the black "tabs" that
are mentioned in the CLAM videos are actually woven nylon loops.
CLAM provides some cords and pegs to attach to those "tabs", but you
will have to buy extra tent pegs somewhere for those bottom grommets.
All together, you can have 10+ stakes/attachment-points holding
the tent/screen room to the ground.

Matt -

No problem!

I remember all of the research and anxiety that we had as we tried
to come up with something that would meet our needs and constraints.
If you have other questions, just let me know via the forum or PM.
Glad to help if I can!

BTW - At the LBL (Land Between the Lakes) rally, we camped with TomK.
Their trailer is fairly similar, but they do have the new cherry wood
interior doors. Pictures of their interior can be found at this thread:

Mission Accomplished - Scamp is Home!

For some reason, the link to the thread containing pictures of our interior
didn't show up on my iPad client. (They did show up on the PC.)

Since there may be other useful information in that thread, we'll try that
link to our interior one more time ....

The pictures of my interior are actually in the 3rd segment of the
following thread, but maybe an iPad doesn't understand a link to
the 3rd segment in a thread. Here is the start of the thread:

Welcome Matt. There is going to be a rally at Gunter Hill Campground in Montgomery Al in March if you can come see and meet. I have a 19' Scamp 5th wheel and live in Pensacola Fl if you are ever in the area and want to see one just let me know.

Matt -

There is also a Scamp Camp in Sebring Fl on Feb 9th to 14th.

Where in Alabama are you located?
My "shoulda beena brother" is located in Semmes/Mobile.
We have had some good times camping down at Gulf Shores. 😊

Thanks for the interior photos and the rally invites. My wife and I are Ohio expats and we like to consider our little one a "Midwesterner born abroad." Currently, we are living in Phenix City, the Fort Benning area.

Hey Matt,
If you ever pass through Birmingham on your way "up home", we'd be happy for you to see our ParkLiner. People are always surprised at how much bigger it is inside than you would imagine from the outside.
