My wife and I love our 13'. Bought in 2011 for a little over $12,000 direct from factory. Our daughter lives about an hour from the factory, so it was a convenient pick up. Ours is pretty much loaded, except no air conditioner (although they automatically wire it for a/c in case a person wants it later. We have front bath/shower, stove, refrigerator
, hot water heater, and 2 propane
tanks. Don't know what it weighs, but certainly more than 1,000 lbs. We pulled with a Caravan with tow package for a couple years (rated for pulling 3600 lbs) the traded up to a Toyota Highlander which is rated at 5000 lbs. We took it on a 10,000 mile round trip Wisconsin to Central Yukon and through Alaska last year. No problems at all. I love the small size for ease of towing, as well as parking. When staying just one night, we never unhooked - just put down the stabilizers, turn on the gas and we were ready to sleep. But with the 13 ft, you have to chose between having bunk beds or bathroom. So it doesn't accomodate grandkids too much. We seldom put up the table for meals - too much work to re-make the bed at night.
But from what I hear, they are in strong demand and it is hard to come across used ones, and they tend to hold their value pretty well.
One think I like about Scamp is that they put in a double layer of a bubble insulation, which is great in cold weather. But the windows
certainly are not energy efficient, and do collect the steam. Opening the top vent helps to reduce the vapor, but in cold weather there is no way around it.
We use it at home during the winter when our kids & grandkids come home for Christmas - I've slept in it when the weather was 10 below, but with a LOT of blankets and quilts, and an electric heater for when I get up.
Hope that helps. Wishing you the best in finding what will meet your needs.
