The decks on the Scorpion series set them apart from other pop-up tent trailers and campers by turning the camper into the shape of a T when fully set up. Two decks, made with Kemlite Gripstar Anti-Slip material, shoot off from the tent camping and living areas. A covered mesh gazebo is an optional part used to cover part of the front deck. The rear deck parts include stainless steel tie-downs, a diamond plate kickstand and full perimeter side panels.
Kitchen and Galley
The Scorpion's galley and kitchen have a propane-powered stove top, countertops, foldable dining table, which when folded down doubles as a bed, a sink and faucet, and a mini-refrigerator. Lights, powered either from outside electrical hookups or an internal generator, are on the walls of the kitchen space and above the stove. Latching cabinets and cupboards are in the kitchen.
Beds and Bathroom
Beds and bedding are on both sides of the trailer, where the tent folds up and out. Cushions on the sitting benches in the galley and dining table pull double duty as bed cushions when the spare bed/dining table is used. Windows around the sleeping and bed areas are made of nylon and mesh, giving the trailer ventilation without letting bugs and mosquitoes into the camper. The Scorpion bathroom parts consist of a cassette toilet and small shower area, which uses outside water connections. The cassette toilet is pumped either into sewer connections or the gray- or black-water holding system until it can be drained into a dump station.
