Just picked up a 2009 Scamp 13 and was wondering if there are any after market options for adding a bike rack?
I ordered my 13' Scamp with the bike rack, to be picked up this summer, but I may cancel the rack as I've been told the rack and a couple of bikes could cause handling problems on a smaller camper.
Anthony, my understanding is weight distribution is the issue. Loading the back of the scamp takes weight off the tongue. I would think that you could distribute the weight inside the scamp to compensate for the increased weight on the back. Theoretically sounds good. Perhaps there are other limitations I am unaware of? I also ordered a rear bike hitch.
Yes, that's my understanding also, but the rack and a couple of bikes will probably add about 80lbs. to the back of the camper. Never having pulled one, I couldn't say if it would be an issue or not!
Just i thought i would still get the bike hitch its a little harder to add it later and you can use it for more then just bike racks.
Perfect Casita makes a after market bolt on hitch for Scamps. If you really feel you want one.
Perfect hitch is a good option. Looking at my build sheet we are getting the bike hitch it's $105.00 with a warranty perfect hitch $180.00. I do not know what im going to use my hitch for flat rack, shower mount, out side cook camp, step or bikes. I have done the should a would a could a to many times.
