My wife and I bought our 13 foot Scamp
in Oct 2013 ..... about a year
before I retired and about 18 months before my wife retired.
Our best tow vehicle at the time of our purchase was a 2011 Honda CRV
that was only rated to pull 1500 pounds. So, we configured the Scamp
for light weight
, good fuel economy, and long distance travel.
We have since upgraded my old work car to a 2014 Ford Escape
Ecoboost FWD. We typically get around 23 mpg towing the Scamp
about 60 mph (sometimes less; sometimes as much as 25 mpg).
Pictures of our Scamp can be found in the later segments of the following

If there is any way possible, I would very highly recommend attending
. The LBL (Land Between the Lakes) rally
will be held Oct 1st - 4th.
They have primitive cabins for rent at LBL and there'll be an "open house"
on Saturday where you could look at bunches of trailers of various brands
Good luck on your search and upcoming retirement!
