I mounted a rail on the roof in order to be able to camp with a extra-tent on the wagon. I have a couple of different coulors on tents for the caravan, but normally we dont really use them so often. I also have a small collection of old single-standing tents...
Hello Lynn! Internet is fantastic... I never thought it existed a historical tent-collecting female on this planet. Post som more pictures, just for fun. One of my favorites is the blue and orange, one layer of heavy cotton. From the mid sixties...
Hi: staffan... Thanks for the links to the vintage trailer rally. I learned to drive on a 1959 Volkswagen, and my first car was a '59 Volvo 544. Loved all the vintage cars and campers/caravans/wagens.
Here's a picture of our Escape 5.0 fth. wheel...somewhat on the large side and a link to their home page.Escape Trailer Industries > Home

Yes we use an 03 G35 as our TV. It has a 3.5 V6 with 260HP/260TQ. I really appreciate the over all performance and stability solo and when towing. It easily handles the 4,500lb trailer especially considering the total aerodynamics of the whole combo. You can see how well it accelerates here.... G35 Airstream Drive Video by CF105 | Photobucket
Note this is a pro set up by towing specialists Can AM. It has a custom made and installed class IV receiver/platform.
Our previous TV was a 150HP/180TQ Nissan Van. It too was a great TV but had notably less power with a 3.0v6 .
We picked up our 2014 front bath Scamp 13 Deluxe Oak yesterday. ($15k) Check it out in the attached photo. Its now washed and safe in our garage after a 400 mile trip home. I took lots of pictures on the factory tour and will post them this weekend. A certified scale showed 1460 pounds on the tires and 230 pounds on the tongue making the total 1690 pounds with one full propane bottle and a group 27 battery. Pretty much all the options except awning and AC. No cargo or water aboard. Salesman said the deluxe wood adds 3-4 hundred pounds. Our 4cyl Outback performed very well towing. Trailer brakes seemed weak, but its probably my very old Prodigy controller. Will investigate and see if I can remember how to adjust it.
Now to get started on a full page list of mods. Details to follow in the coming weeks.
Keep warm, John and Jill
PS. Scamp salesman said over 65% of sales are the 13 footers. They have about a dozen trailers in stock.

We picked up our scamp in Backus in March 2013 and have spent about 75 days in it from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and California about one month. Then on to the Canadian Rockies. We are looking forward to our adventures coming up. Here are some pics of our travels.[IMG][/IMG]
