I am looking at purchasing a 2007 Scamp
19' and have some reservations. The current owner has added a new roof top A/C above the eating area in the rear of the trailer. I have always seen the roof A/C about midway on the 19' and was wondering if anyone knew if the roof was sufficiently braced to support the A/C in this location. There is not a roof top unit where it normally sits. I allso have a concern that the sleeping area may no be cool enough if the A/C is all the way at the other end of the trailer.
Also, he has added a Champion 3000 watt generator
to a shelf attached to the rear bumper. It looks rather heavy. Would the added weight
of the generator
and the A/C at the rear of the trailer have an adverse effect on how the rig would handle? It is pulled by a 2002 Dodge Dakota v6 that looks to be in good shape: he is selling the rig as a package which is good as I don't have a truck.
The hitch is secured to the bed with 5 bolts on each side. They do not go through to the frame. is this legit?
I have wanted one of these for a long time and they are hard to find here in Houston. Now that I am retired it is time to start doing some traveling but I don't want to looking at a bunch of problems from the previous owner's handy work.
It is currently on both Dallas and Houston Craigslist at what appears to be attractive pricing.
Thanks for any thoughts or comments you may have.
