Current price on the Scamp 19 Deluxe?

Does anyone know what they cost new right now?

I looked at an escape and liked it a lot but I also like the lighter weight of the scamp which would allow for a smaller tow vehicle.

I'm in the deep south so the Scamp would be a good bit easier to pick up as well.

According to my 2016 price list, the Standard 19' is $16,395. Standard option package makes it $18,495. Deluxe (wood interior) starts at $23,095.

yeah... the escape starts at about 27K US and then I'd have another 4K in delivery costs (Scamp would be $1500)

So the escape starts at maybe 7K more. I suppose I could just call Scamp

There are many differences between the two units hence the price difference. Escape is at the top end of build quality in the fiberglass world.

Make sure you take into account the current US/Canadian exchange rate. Pretty substantial discount on the cost of the Escape.

Which Escape? Construction differences aside, an Escape 19 and a Scamp 19 are very different trailers. Not a straightforward comparison.

As for delivery costs, regardless of brand, there's no better excuse for a vacation than a trip to the factory to pick up your new rig.

Keep in mind that you will have to look at whichever trailer you buy.

I would caution you about buying a Scamp 19 without laying in the loft of one. My wife and I drove to Backus, MN last summer where, sadly, I found the loft bed to be a little short for my liking. It appears to me that the front of the Scamp 19 is slightly tapered but maybe I am wrong. Of course, you might find that it is not an issue but it is something you should be aware of. Also, with the Scamp 19, you lock yourself into only a pickup for camping for a very long time - a capable SUV won't work.

It's ironic that you are considering the same two initial candidates that I had a year ago before I went to Backus, considered indepth the logistics of obtaining an Escape 19, and had the chance to walk through a Casita 17 SD. I leave for Rice, TX next Sunday to pickup a new Casita 17 SD.

They're all good.

Yeah.... I'm sort of looking at the soon to come ford ranger and figured the 5th wheel would be safer to tow.

My wife is 5ft even and I'm 5-10ish. We'll probably end up sticking with the 13 longer than I think as we own it and its paid for.

At 5-10 ish you might have have sufficient room in the loft - Al would know better than me. Seems like the new Ranger and Scamp 19 could be a good combo. Looks like the Ranger won't be available until the first quarter of 2019 so you might luck out and find a late model 19 for sale down in Florida or somewhere close in the mean time. Or maybe Al is getting tired of looking at his!

Your statement is open to discussion. The quality / value of the Scamp 19 equals or exceeds its asking price IMHO

Nah, Im good Jeff. In fact, were heading out to AZ and UT again in May for a couple of months of bumming around in the desert in that old relic. We were on the Southern Utah Tour last year with Casitas, Escapes, Scamps, Bigfoots (feets???), a Lil Snoozy, a Boler, an Oliver and at least one other mfr I cant recall and I found no correlation between brand, size or age with owner enjoyment. Id camp again with that group anytime.

Don, Im probably not a good test case for size as it relates to comfort in a Scamp 19er. Im 63 and the wrong side of 250#s but have no problems even in our front bath model and that certainly doesnt seem to be the norm. It may help that Cindy is still pretty close to her acquisition specs. Best to try it for yourself. One thing I wouldnt be without is our Southern Mattress (shameless plug for a local company).

As to towing, we had a 16 Scamp before which worked well behind a double cab, 4WD Tacoma and I think the 19er pulls even better. Looking forward to seeing the new Ranger.

I left it open Steve because I've been around long enough to know there are different views about different trailers. Myself I'm happy with the Bigfoot it meets my needs/wants was bought at a good price. At the time I could have bought an Escape almost did there was one near me for sale.

The only down side to the Bigfoot is a trade off in gas because of the width but sure is nice inside.

I agree the Bigfoot is a great trailer, a tad heavy but still GREAT.
