Hi: Richard in Georgia... We've lived with THAT curve ball for years... and I've become quite comfortable sitting in the corner, whether "Painted" in there, or "Pointed" in there!!! Alf

Didn't see stipper pole in the options list! Did I miss something?!!

The dinette in the back was an important feature for us, especially when camping in cold or inclement weather (when we don't want to take our meals -or coffee- outside).
Are you saying the back is warmer in the 21 versus the 19? Are not the furnaces located amidships in both models. I do know with the auxiliary electric heater under the dinette it is quite cozy up front.

What's the stripper pole for? My old Scamp 16 had one but I knew it was there to keep the upper cabinets from falling down.

Same here, with the new build and heavier awning up there extra support was needed. I really used it a lot in the 21 to exit easier out the door. In my old 19 I installed an extra handle by the door, no longer needed in the new model.

I see Myron's wheels turning now and expect to see a really nice wooden spindle appearing in the near future.

Cathy - thanks for starting this thread. It should be useful for folks and encourage them to find both models to tour, if possible in their areas.

Actually, that Scamp had two stripper poles, one at each end. I replaced the original cabinet supports with chrome shower rod. Easier to wipe finger prints off than wood. With or without the poles, have found my 19 a perfect fit. Oh, sure, a few mods haven't hurt.
