Don, I really like your rig and I am not surprised at how well it handles. Since you posted a couple years ago can you update on how it all worked out as we are interested in similar sized rigs.

Also... The aerodynamics of the Honda in theory should punch a nice hole in the wall of air making for a fuel efficient rig. What kind of towing mileage are you getting? Thnxs

The Scamp and I had a good relationship. For just myself it was ideal I felt, easy to tow, plenty of room. I lived in it about a month by myself and could not think of anything better. I bought a small Honda generator to run the TV and AC when parked, that worked out fine as well.
When the wife joined me, it started to become a bit tight, the shower is quite small as is the bathroom, and she could not get happy with the crowded conditions. We could not see any future uses for it, and with some reluctance sold it, our travel days seem to be about over, due to old age and the fact we have already been everywhere several times..

Water in the tanks would make the tongue weight even less.
