    I just joined this forum. Clicked on your pic because I saw the older OUTBACK ! I too own a Subaru. However it is a Forester and can only tow 1000 lbs. I'm trading in my Forester and buying a 2015 OUTBACK because it can tow 2700 lbs. As I was clicking thru your pics I see you too have a newer OUTBACK. We are new to the camping world. After doing a lot of research seems to me a Scamp 13 would be great for the two of us. After the first of the year I'm going to order a new Scamp. I've already spoke to them. Ok enough about me. How do you like your Scamp and OUTBACK ?

    Hi, yes we bought a new 14 3.6 Outback. I opted for the larger engine. It does get pretty bad mileage but I tow a lot of big hills so wanted the much higher torque and HP. If you are doing flatter lands the 4 cyl would be fine. I also went with the 14 as I wanted a regular transmission over the CVT, which I do not know a lot about and may be just fine. The 13 is a great trailer, I would only like it a foot longer and have no plans for buying the 16. The 13 is the best towing trailer there is due to its torsion flex axle, it cant bounce like a leaf spring and I have never heard of one rolling because of that. The 200 lb hitch weight limit is tough on the Subaru so you must be careful not to over pack. But we put a lot of miles on our old 4 cyl outback and ran just great until the heads went out a second time at 200k. The front brakes on the 14 much larger too, the rear are the same. It really helps. We also have trailer brakes and they do work with all the hills we do, I need to put a new set on the trailer already, they go fast. Its very important that you always store scamp on is jacks, I do mine different than others here. I lower the tongue all the way down on the hitch jack, pop out the rear stabilizers all the way down, then jack the front up to level. You wall as much weight off the tires as possible. Many folks just park them and after a while they will sag, mine is already down several inches. I know you will love the scamp, Id love to be in ours a lot more than we can use it. Retirement is too far away.
