We are a family of four from Manitoba Canada (just north of North Dakota) and just recently purchased a 2014 Scamp
16 Deluxe from the original owner. From the sounds of it there aren't too many Canadian Scamp
owners but looking forward to meeting you. We were incredibly lucky that the perfect scamp
showed up for sale
in our hometown. We are in love with the "bigger" bed on the deluxe and the previous owner ordered it with the front bunks instead of the dinette so it's the ideal setup.
First Mod I had to do was build a proper bunk bed railing and ladder for our 4 year old, and enclose the bottom bunk into a crib for our 1 year old. I'm a typical do it yourselfer so grabbed some lumber and a couple handheld power tools. I'm pretty proud of what I came up with over a couple evenings. First 3 night camping trip was a success as both kids slept through the night.
For the bunk support and railing, I did four vertical 2x2s. I attached a 2x2 that runs the width of the camper, then on top of that I put a 1x4 laying flat that also runs the width. The top bunk now rests on the 1x4. I put 4 short screws through the bottom of the 1x4 into the bottom of the factory top bunk, and four screws into the top of the bottom cabinet. The whole apparatus is super solid, and shouldn't be too noticeable when I remove it. We plan to leave it as a bunk only until the kids are much older and will just remove the "gate" once the youngest has outgrown the crib phase.
Hopefully my pictures load, if not will follow up with a couple pics.
