Compact II Owners : Second Generation?

Hi fellow Compact II owners,
Just noticed this post in "For Sale" listings. I was not aware of any CII's being made after 1974. This one seems to be made by a different manufacturer than Hunter Industries. Check out all the photos to see the differences. Interesting>

Fran
74 Compact II


For Sale - 78 Compact Jr - near Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A
It is a Compact (Compact Jr?)
Manufactured 1-1978
I bought the trailer ~~ 6 years ago when we had a jeep wrangler and need something light to pull.
We used it 2-3 times on local trips to Frazier Park area.
Work/school didn’t allow much camping time and it was parked for ~~4 years.
Price negotiations start at $4200.00.
Here is a link to the photos.
http://www.vfw11508.org/Perrys-Pages/78%20Compact/index.html

The Trailer is
13 Feet long (exterior
7 Feet wide at the widest point (exterior)

· 2 burner cook top
· Ice box (not refrigerator)
· Closet ~ 5’ tall
· Under sink storage
· Under Ice box storage

· Wheel bearings were repacked when I bought it ~~6 years ago with ~~ 200 miles.
· Huge storage under the Port, Starboard and fore seating

The previous owner had a lot of work put into it.

It may need;

· My pup chewed a cushion corner
· Probably need a new water faucet
· Dinette table post has surface rust on chrome
· Tires hold air but will need replacement
· Pop –up hasn’t been opened in a while – Gasket? Canvas?
· Door screen -same pup used the screen to get in the trailer – Screen frame is good but will need a new mesh
· Deep cycle battery may be good, but it has been sitting for sometime without a charge

Water
· 20 Gal fresh water tank (if my math is correct- 34”x12”x12”)
· It appears to be food grade polyethylene
· Small 12 DC pump
· Plumbed; to the sink, an inlet on the port side, and a drain pipe
· City Water hookup plumbed to the sink

Electric - 120V AC
· External connector

· Wired to 2 double outlets (same type as a house.)

Electric - 12V
· 12 volt lights
· Deep cycle 12V Battery in a neat wooden battery box

LP (Propane)
· Plumbed in copper from the tongue to the cook top ,except for the tank connection which is standard flexible hose

It's a Family Wagon, slightly different than the Compacts we've come to know and love. There's been several posted for sale over the years here on FiberglassRV.

Interesting, Donna. There aren't any albums with Family Wagon photos. Well they do seem to be part of the Compact 'family' . I wonder if that company bought the molds.

Francene, the albums are sadly lacking. For instance, the Biggar... we've got the pictures and we have the members but the album has never appeared nor a listing on the first page.

Here's some threads with pics and other links: Possible clue to the compact story

Just got a Compact Family Wagon

Bigfoot Trailer with pop-up roof for sale, Belleville Ontario???
