A little on the small side for us. I am 6'3" and can't stretch out on the bed. Also, I can't stand all the way up inside. The new ones are a little taller inside than my 1984 model was, but still not high enough for me to stand up. Mine was older and not in the nest shape. The fresh water system had been ripped out by a previous owner. There was no furnace or AC. There was no batter or charging system. There was a stove and a working 2-way fridge.
I could imagine traveling in it alone just fine... but with my wife and three-year-old, it was tight. We just had another kid this year, so we really needed to upgrade. In the 13 foot model, there is only room for one person to stand. Anyone else has to be seated at the dinette. Don't get me wrong... I thought it was pretty cool. I'd have been happier if we had a new one... and probably one of the 16 footers. The length doesn't translate well to the box size of a pup, because they measure from bumper to hitch, and that measurement includes any sleeping areas, too. So, a 13 foot Scamp is closer in length to, let's say, a 3 foot box pup. Also, they are a foot narrower and almost a foot shorter inside, so cubic footage is WAY smaller.
