P.Raz,

It was a long 400 mile trip home. First 200 had dry pavement. Second was wet with some freezing stuff, but not slippery. Needless to say the Scamp looked terrible on arrival, but a quick hosedown solved that. Already started some simple mods. Pics later.

John

Looks good. A nice clean facility is generally a sign of a quality organization and product.

2014 Scamp 13 ft deluxe Oak interior pics

Here are a few snaps of Scamp's interior. Its in my dark garage and I am using a $3.00 wide angle lens on my iPhone so the quality is pretty bad. I will post better when we are in the sunshine if a few months. More on my fickr set at 2014 Scamp 13 Deluxe - a set on Flickr

You may consider those to be really crappy pictures, because you are looking at the real thing. BUT as long as you're happy, we're HAPPY for you

I was going to pick up mine in person but could not, I'd like to seen there shop. Oh well I'm glad you took pics and enjoy yours. Did you have any other mods done at the factory, other than standard deluxe package? So what's on the mods list. The photos looked good to me.

Really great looking trailer, you can't beat a deluxe interior. I always like seeing Scamp factory pictures I always learn something. I think I will get a set of wheels for my 5er landing gear to help move it around while in storage.

Darrell in Al,

I have a long list of probable modifications I want to do to our Scamp 13 footer. They include lots of custom woodwork for storage and utility. There will also be lots of tweaks to the systems. Here is a list of initial ideas, most will happen.

Change all lighting to LEDs.
Add extra brake and clearance lights to rear of trailer.
Consider moving porch light away from entry door to keep bugs out. I should have asked Scamp to not install it.
Add charge wizard to converter.
Cut off tongue jack handle and weld on a nut to allow use of my electric drill.
Add a panel display to show battery's voltage.
Add a main battery disconnect switch.
Add removable 12 gauge shore power cable. (I intend no AC)
Build a box to contain propane tanks, battery, chocks, etc.
Add a deadbolt to the entry door and install pins on hinge side to defeat hinge removers.
Replace Scamp's porus foam door seal with a water tight version. (bad form Scamp)
Mod water pump with silencer kit, 2 gallon expansion tank and anti freeze filler hose.
Add low profile Camco cover to fantastic fan and buy resistor from Fantastic to allow lower current draw, quieter operation and 6 speeds.
Insulate floor from underneath with foam. Consider insulating exposed plumbing while I am under there.
Consider adding stabilizer jacks powered by an electric drill.
Add fence post stinky slinky storage under trailer if I can find clearance. I asked Scamp not to install their storage over propane tanks.
Investigate the possibility/cost of lifting the trailer 2 inches.
Add a 100 watt solar panel.
Add storage cabinet under dinette. With the 54 inch bed and benches it looks like 12 inches could be use for bedding storage against rear wall.
Think about replacing Scamp's table design with a more flexible arrangement.
Screen all outside vents, frig, water heater, furnace.
Consider adding fan to outside frig vents for circulation if necessary. We don't camp in hot weather very often.
Permanently mount my macerator to allow black and grey tank draining if I can find clearance underneath.
Add Oxygenics sprayer in shower.
Add peep hole in bathroom to view tow vehicle when things go bump in the night.
Add EZE gutters on at least the door side. This is also handy when using an EZ up or tarp like "awning". Probably above the rear window too since we like the window open on rainy days.
Add 12 volt powered usb chargers for i devices.
Use furnace's additional duct options to feed heat to bathroom and water tank storage area.
Add small fan in black tank vent to create slight negative pressure to lessen smell when flushing. Perhaps power it from light switch.
Add drain valve to water heater drain plug.
Consider soft pad over door to save my forehead.
Consider adding hose to drain pressure from accumulator tank into freshwater tank when traveling.
Add digital thermostat to furnace.
Consider lexan or plastic film storm windows.
Add long oak tray under back window to store glasses, phones, flashlights, etc.
Add wheel to tongue jack.

That's my list. Might take a few years. There are always projects for a fellow who likes to tinker.

Please suggest any ideas you find useful.

John

Those are some great mods John. I especially like the idea of a negative pressure black tank wired to the bathroom light .
