Huh!........ VERY good to know!

Yes, the front window, behind the window guard, is not thermal, nor opening, old or new.

For a single travel, it would be palatial.
Ditto, exactly what Jim said.

As much as we loved our little Scamp the thing we were most happy to be free of was a bed that size for two people.

Well, palatial for a trailer.

I remember after doing half the country in a Scamp 13 with two toddlers, my wife and I took it up for a weekend in the mountains without the kids. We thought we were staying in a huge condo.

In my mind that was a given. But let's avoid discussing how my mind works, okay!

Your mind works fine. Just messing with you. I've stayed in a few palaces during my travels....

The front bed in a reversed 19 would be about the same size as the rear (main) bed in a 17B. Since a number of couples manage in the 17B, I suspect it would work for many in the 19.

For a single traveler, I feel it is an ideal set up. A good sized bed and the possibility of a "U" shaped dinette that can have a deep rear bench and still fit a large table. That, combined with a single adjustable pedestal with 4 way slide would be what I would go for if I was to move up to a 19.

Jon,
Wouldn't be too hard to grab one of the used 19's that have been coming up and make the conversion. Probably a good bit less investment as well to go that route and get all the Vermilye mods in from the get go.

thank you all for your insights. I'm attracted to the palatiality of the queen permanent bed and so will likely stay traditional.
