i just bought this today! i am looking forward to sheltered camping. it is in unbelievably good condition for it's age. there are only minor woodwork to do in the interior and the head/wall liner is in great shape. i will be visiting this site often as i do some minor tinkering. thanks to ed harris for telling me about this wonderful site.

Joey,

Email me and we can compare. Lcballoon@cox.net. I would love to see it. We are sure cornering the market on Hunter/Compacts in Calif.

Thanks for the pictures! What are your plans for her? As you can see from my signature, I have a similar trailer, a Trailswest Campster, but I have not even seen mine in person yet. (Still a couple of months before I can pick her up.)

I split this out of the Referral topic. Thought Joey's find warranted more views..hence the move to General Chat

i am planning on just cleaning up. this is my very first one and i have a general idea of what to do - i could always change my mind once i get started. i have to get new curtains and re-upholster the cushions before a camping trip on cinco de mayo weekend. the upcoming camping trip was the main reason for me to buy a little fiberglass camper. i will most likely try to redo the cabinets and put in wood floors when i have more time this summer. the seller gave me some hardware for the rear awning but it is missing the fabric. does anyone have a pic or sketch as to how it attaches? i will keep you all updated as to how this turns out.

thanks,

joey

Nice find--I had a Compact J and when i redid it I got most of my material for fixing from second hand shops.Some good inexpensive items in this type of stores.

Joey,
Nice trailer. I see you have the hardware for the side window awnings. I've not seen that on a current trailer. Thanks for the photos.

I guess this is why I did not hear back from you?!?

Congratulations!

I see in one of the shots that your truck is in the background....How did it pull?
I have to say I am a little releived that you will not be pulling the 4500 with the VW,especially that far.

I am glad that you found this one,it does seem to have a lot of things "Right" on it.

Have fun and welcome,I told you,you would like it here!
Ed

hi ed,

sorry for not getting back to you right away. i was trying to figure out the logistics of going to get your trailer or having it shipped when i saw this ad on the paper - it was only 30 miles away instead of 1400. i did not really know that i would like it until i got to see it. my vw did a great job towing it especially with the high winds we have had lately. i did notice a difference when accelerating, uphill grades and stopping. i guess i will have to just remember that it is there and drive carefully. today, i fixed all the exterior lights, went to the upholstery shop to have the cushions redone as well as new curtains that match the cushions, and took off the vinyl material that collapses with the poptop so the upholstery shop can use it as a guide to make me a new one. i have to figure out how the rear awning works so i can have the material for that made as well. i can see how this can be as addicting as my volkswagen hobby. thanks again and good luck with your trillium sale. how is the fiber stream you just got?

joey
