Gordon, i agree with you. I'm surprised they don't use more glassed in wood in general like escape uses on their trailers. I guess its easier and less time consuming to just throw rivets in through the shell. Well, at least we have some concrete answers on the a/c "support" and roof structure now.

Hmmm... Glass in wood in the ceiling, then cut a 14 square hole in the middle and pierce it with numerous screws... Seems like a recipe for water infiltration and eventual rot.

Tabbed cabinetry... Yes, it adds to the cost and has minimal value when youre using modular fiberglass cabinets. It might be more appropriate for the deluxe.

Im wondering now what the pad material is...

Jon, it's lighter in color so it may be a different type/weave of fiberglass. Like a smooth, more tightly woven fiberglass cloth vs the sprayed on chopped mat.

Thats what Id heard- fiberglass cloth. They use pieces of it to seal the belly band, bond the shell to the floor, tab in the bench and bunk supports...

So i have a solution for my dome light. I came across this Hengs led ring that is made for the fantastic fan. Unfortunately, this exact product will not work in the scamp because scamp uses a different trim (wooden) on the fan. However, the idea is sound and I will purchase some led extrusion and diy a similar setup. I will even add a small pwm controller to add dimming. The parts are ordered, I am excited to finally get some more light in the scamp! The pwm controler is great, it has a built in on/off switch as well as dimming capability up to 5 amps.
