I think it might be possible to sleep 2 adults and 3 kiddos in one of the
Scamp models with the 54" bed and the sofa/bunk-beds configuration.
We have already slept 4 (my wife, myself, and 2 granddaughters) in our
Scamp13. We'll probably find out about sleeping 5 next Spring/Summer.
For a Christmas present, my wife has thought about giving a "gift of time"
by offering to take our daughter's 3 kids (all preteen) for a weekend
camping trip. Our daughter and son-in-law would then get a weekend to
themselves and the 3 kids would get a camping weekend with grandma
and grandpa. (Although it will undoubtedly be a bit crowded, I think that
we should be able to sleep the 5 of us in our 2014 Scamp 13 L1 with the
Here are a couple of sleeping configurations we might try:
My grandson on the top bunk, my granddaughters on the bottom bunk
(in a heads & tails) mode, and my wife and I in the 54" double bed.
My grandson on the top bunk, myself on the lower bunk, and my wife
and 2 granddaughters (perhaps in heads & tails mode) in the 54" bed.
Something like that ......
You can now get the 54" bed in the Scamp 13 Std Layout 1, the Scamp
13 Deluxe, or the Scamp 16 Deluxe. (Wayne, our Scamp salesman told
me that Scamp will build a Scamp 16 Deluxe Layout A with the front
sofa/bunk-beds instead of the front dinette.)
Now that we have a more capable tow vehicle, I have asked Scamp
to consider starting to offer the Scamp 16 Std Layout 4 with the 54" bed
..... not that they actually will.
(I think that Scamp should already have all (or almost all) of the molded
fiberglass cabinets to create that configuration
We probably got most of the options except for the AC & bathroom and,
in October 2013, our brand new 2014 Scamp 13 was under $11,000.
(I was trying to keep the weight down in order to stay within Honda's
published tow weight limitation of 1500 lbs for our 2011 CRV
Besides being able to sleep a mixture of 5 (or6?) adults and kids, I figure
that our little Scamp 13 should be able to seat up to 9 (adults + kids) on
a blustery rainy day (3 on the sofa plus 3 on each side of the dinette).
For pictures of the inside of our Scamp 13, look at the following thread:
Scamp Full Size Bed = Smaller Table Size
Instead of an awning
, we also often carry a screen room/tent that usually
travels on a pad laying on the front sofa:
CLAM 1660 Mag Screen Tent - The Others Don't compare
CLAM 1660 Mag Screen Tent – Amazon.com
CLAM 1660 Mag Screen Tent Wind Panels – Amazon.com
Of course your needs/wants/constraints may be different than ours.
As always, YMMV.
Good luck on your search!
I hope that this information was useful and that you will be able to
find the perfect trailer for your family and make many happy memories.
