It has AC, heat strip, and I believe a lot of add ons. You are probably right. It may be better to start small so I can get used to driving a trailer, parking, and setting up.

It will be a great Scamp to learn with and it's quite likely you may end up loving and keeping it.

I do want to add that I can be impulsive with buying. As in, I might buy before I know all that I need to know. That is what I did when I bought my 13' Scamp. It being a 1992, and without many upgrades, I paid $4,000. I felt the risk was somewhat low.

I know I am encouraging you to buy, I just think you'll never know until you get into one and give it a go.

I could buy a 13, and use it for a year, then change to a 16 if I think it is too small. I do think Iíd like a designated place to sit with a table.
A Casita Patriot Deluxe is comparable to a Scamp13 Standard front bath.
A Scamp13 Deluxe has custom interior cabinets and more...


Here is what my '04 Scamp13D looks like inside...

The side bath has little head room as the floor is 6" higher than the main floor.
I built my 16' with a front bath that has more headroom.

So much good information/consideration in this thread...I can't thank you all enough for starting and contributing to it!
"Is it worth it?" really depends on your budget. If it doesn't strain your budget, then 100% I think it is WORTH IT! You can start camping now! Who knows, maybe you will love it, maybe its not for you. Why not find out now?

One nice thing with molded FG trailers, you could buy one now, keep it for 10 years, and probably get 80% of what you paid for it back when you sold it. A traditional trailer would LOSE 80% of its value in those same 10 years.

And you never know, your health now may allow you to do stuff that 10 years from now, you won't be able to do. Don't wait! I've had too many friends delay enjoyment until "after I retire" only to either get sick or worse.

We bought our first RV camper (fifth wheel) when we were 26, and heck, I camped as a child in a little Shasta. FG trailers tend to hold their value very well. So get one now, enjoy it, and by the time you retire, you will be seasoned campers and know exactly what you want.

In the world of 13 footers, Scamps are MUCH more common than Casitas.
