money is always something to keep in mind. when i was looking for a fiberglass trailer, i got a general idea of what a "good" buy would be and a general idea of how much upgrades and repairs would be. considering that i am well below my expected budget so far, i hope that the minor repairs and upgrades i do will not even exceed my budget for buying a trailer before doing any repairs. i suspect that before i am done - or maybe never ever done, like my volkswagens - i may well exceed the budget. but i will be having fun with it, that's for sure!

Hey Joey,
So you have a VW Transporter type truck then? They're very rare here in the USA aren't they? I've seen one running around in my area, caught my eye cause u just don't see em in that more modern body style like yours...
VERY NICE looking Compact II bro, and great pics, I can see many similarities between yours and mine, and a few differences too. I LOVE that yours has the little side awnings for the windows, mine has the holes from where they must have been at one time, but are gone and the holes are plugged up! What year is yours? I believe mine's a '73. Somewhere on here I have the details of mine posted, but Im sure we'll compare notes at some point. I noticed (in your pics) that you only have the stove top, while mine's got an oven also. Though Im not sure who would ever bake on a camping trip...LOL
Anyway, congrats on a great find on a LIGHTWEIGHT rig, and welcome to the family here! Let me know how much the replacement fabric for the poptop is, mine's getting pretty sorry looking, but I don't want to tear it apart unless I have an idea of how wicked it's going to cost, what kind of place to look for to do the work, etc...

Great pictures. I had my pop up remade in Chula Vista. I will send you the info if you want, my cost was $250.00. But that was 5 years ago. I too like the window awings, I didn't know there was a awing in the back. I have a stand alone awing. I jealous of the refer, I only have an ice box. I like the cushion along the front wall, but my table goes almost to the wall.

We need to have a San Diego Ralley? Anyone?

hi ed,

how is the fiber stream you just got?

I like it a lot.
It has become so cold and windy here again that I have put some things I wanted to do on hold until the weather moderates a little.

It is fun learning the ins and outs of a new rig and then trying to work with wha is already there to improve it.

I am beginning to wonder if the quest to have the bathroom was such a smart idea like I was convinced it was?
Live and Learn!?!?

i am having my popup fabric made at ted's upholstery in national city. he is charging me $200. i am having him make a couple more sections with screens that can be closed for inclement weather.

i have not tried to turn on my refer just yet. i will get to that next after i get done with the electrical - none of it works. i am thinking of getting the basics to work for now and ripping everything out and starting over after my camping trip.

i would not mind attending a so cal ralley. it would be great to see some faces from this community as well as getting some wonderful ideas for upgrading and maintenance.

I'm glad to hear the cost is fairly reasonable. I'm thinking it will be cheaper to do here in Fresno than up in Washington so it will probably wait until fall.
