No, the Scamp was a 1977 13 ft oldie. No brakes on a trailer that weighs less than 1000 lbs. And then I gutted it and took out heater (w stovepipe) sink, water tank and old frig. Re did it with only a dorm frig and a microwave. No stove, dry camping only. So not much weight at all. Light enough that it could be turned and moved by hand or with a hand dolly. No change in milage when towing. I love that thing. But, now I need heat, AC and a bathroom. Camped from Cleveland to Florida to Minnesota to AZ.
The TB is rated for a 400# hitch weight. The MiniLite is rated at dry 236. So w/ weight I figure 336#. Still under my 400#.

Hi and welcome to the forums! I considered buying a used Scamp before deciding it wasn't a good fit for my needs so I'm glad I held out for a bathroom & shower. You should really like the MiniLite. Feel free to post some pictures too.

Take care.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
