Big enough, but not too big.
One reason for my setup is that with high fuel prices I want high efficiency so I can go more after I retire.
Now is the time for me to get the Scamp fixed the way I want it.
One case in point is I have replaced the floors and completely fiberglasses them top and bottom with epoxy resin and 6.5 oz fabric. Then I have bonded that with epoxy to the shell and added steel bracing for better support.
I have not yet resealed the windows
and with the excessive rain we have had there is a small lake in the back where the floor previously rotted out.
The fiberglass is keeping the wood completely isolated! It is a mess, but no deterioration. Perhap I need to add some drain scuppers?
Either that or take the time now to seal the windows!
