Way back before the board was hijacked there was a thread on this issue. (Check out the original "Legacy Post" on this topic.)

I'm bringing it back up again since I'm trying to put together a table of bed dimensions for the various common eggs. The topic comes up periodically and I'm hoping we can put something together people will find useful.

Anyway - The info I'm looking for is the bed dimensions: width (shoulder to shoulder - measured from the wall to the furthest edge of the bed) and length (head to toe - measured wall to wall). I know that for most eggs these will vary depending on exactly where you measure, but if we standardize on the MAX of each dimension - at least we know where we stand.

My recollection is that Boler's, Scamps and Casita 13/16's have 48" wide beds, and that Scamp dlx's and Casita 17's have 54" wide beds. I don't recall the width of the Liberty and don't know the length of any of them.

I'll post the assembled info as soon it's combined and I figure out how best to post it. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...lt/confuse.gif

Thanks

Mike

1975 13' Trillium 44-47W x 76L

The width is w/o the board I use as a bed extension.
With the table corner (angled) cutaways and the extra wall thickness in back where the table hinges mount, the middle is the narrowest width. sigh http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...efault/shg.gif

That's why we sleep head to toe, and in sleeping bags!

1977 Surfside TM-14 57" wide at head, 77" long, 47" wide at foot of bed. I'm glad someone is putting this together, very useful.

This is the list I had assembled from posted information in this forum, a couple of years ago. The "code" formatting is just so the columns will line up (it should, by displaying in a fixed-width font), since the forum software doesn't support tables...

Thanks Mike; I look forward to the compiled result.

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...ault/aplas.gif It's nice to see my Scamp Deluxe is exactly what Paul offered up:
The bed in my 16' Deluxe measures 52 1/2 X 78. Of course the back wall is curved...I think I could be jealous of those with "flat backs." Makes me more determined than ever to have 5th wheel... no more crawling over a body to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night...if one sleeps front-to-back vs. side-to-side. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...default/OH.gif

Our LiteHouse Trailer-For-Two has a bed measuring 63" wide x 78'' long --- the Trailorboat's bed measures 47" wide x 77" long. Both "comfortable" in their own way(s)!

Mike, we can merge this thread with the original, if you'd like it handled that way. It would still show up as a Legacy Post if we did that, though.

Mike Watters 07-11-2007 09:22 AM

Thanks for the link to the legacy post. (I'd forgotten about my off-color, but obscure, sig line!)

I don't think the threads need to be merged, but it's VERY good to have a link to the old one. I wasn't able to find that thread when I searched before posting. Probably just a lack of diligence on my part. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...default/61.gif

I'm sure it'd take ages to assemble the numbers for the more obscure eggs (although a million Boler clones will all be the same). I'm just hoping the most common ones can be well covered.

At this point there's a few specific questions:

Are the Scamp 13' and 16' trailers the same width? (bed length on all about 74/78?))

Same question for Casita (all 73/77?)

I'm seeing two very different numbers for bed length: 74" and 78". Difference is where measured or difference in trailers?

Similar story with Casita bed length (73" vs 77")

Same Story with Compact Jr (70x72 vs 66x75)

Again with Burro wide body's (53 vs 56 and 84 vs 87)

Common trailers with no info yet:
Scamp 5er loft
Burros ('cept 17-wide)
Big Boler

Here's what I've got so far... Sorry for the lousy formatting...
