We just bought a 13' scamp, and the kitchen sink water faucet [the one that works with city water] is too short.
The spout sticks out barely past the edge of the sink, making it hard to use to fill pots, brush teeth, etc. Can the spout part of the faucet be replaced easily? I really didn't want to get into any major plumbing here.... Thanks.

You have to change it. I found a bar sink faucet on sale at Home Depot.
It has a high rise faucet and swiveled. You do have to drill a couple of holes in the counter but it is easy to plumb. I had a water pump in my trailer so I used one side for trailer water and the other side for the city water.

Good luck,
John

Since neither Scamp nor Casita make their own faucets, you may find this posting from a Casita owner will work perfectly for you as well:

It's the faucet with only one handle [to turn on the cold city water]. I'm thinking we may have to replace the whole unit. Next time I'm near the camper, I'll take some measurements.

Sheryl,
We found the original Scamp faucet completely inadequate, so we replaced it with a bar faucet and have been very satisfied with that. By the way, the "bar faucet" that Scamp has on their parts list is just a regular kitchen faucet, not a high faucet like you would expect. We made the mistake of ordering it and promptly returned it, then bought the one pictured. We also replaced the original 4 1/2" deep sink with an 8" deep sink that I found on Ebay. Love it!

I did exactly what John did. Chrome bar faucet from HD, think it was $29. Cold goes to city water, and hot goes to onboard system. Easy to do, fabulous upgrade.

We replaced ours with a regular kitchen sink faucet from Home Depot. It is a high arch, swivels 360 and has a pull-out spout on the end. Works great.

I have this one in stainless: Danze Sheridan Bar Faucet. I like the paddle handles, I can turn the water on and off with the back of my hands if they're really gunky. The one I took out of the Scamp looked like a bathroom faucet complete with round crystal-like handles!

I'm putting this one into my Perris Pacer renovation. Found on Amazon.com. Spendy, but pretty.
