DK,

Thanks for joining and posting your first post.

You are the third Compact travel trailer owner that has become a member. Now, the other two called theirs Compact Jr. Travel Trailers.

Please use the “Upload Photo” tool on the left when replying and show us your trailer.

Compact Jr.

:wave DK, I own a 72 Compact Jr. The expando top on mine is full length. The body of mine doesn't have what appears to be a tip-out
shelf on the outside and the the door opening is slightly different
but all and all very similar. They are rare and offer a really cool
alternative to the 10k dollar Burros etc. Orville

Hi, I'm Chuck H. and have a 1974 Hunter Compact II. At the last Oregon Gathering there were two Compact II's and two Compact Jr's and a Havas which looks like a cousin to them all. Check out Tom Trostel's photos of the 2007 gathering for photos.

Hello, We have a compact II . We just came back from camping in it. Ours is white with black trim. The inside is harvest gold.
We had one that we totaled in Montana. It was blue. Simular otherwise.
Our camper is fun.

I have a 1973 Compact II also. Mine is white on the upper 1/2 of the body, and a light green on the lower 1/2 of the body. I have BEAUTIFUL (haha) avacado green appliances! YAY! hehe Mine does need some freshening but overall it's a great rig for something over 30 yrs old!

My sister Cory has a Compact Jr; I'm the chief mechanic on it. She has the avocado green appliances, too--really gives away what decade it was built in!

She's been using it all summer and has been compiling a list of desirable improvements. My Christmas gift to her this last couple years has been to work on the trailer, so this winter season it'll be living at my house, with the sounds of hammering and drilling issuing from it.

Since we're all Compact folks here I'd like to ask, does anybody else get the feeling that our fiberglass skins are pretty darn thin? I mean, I can push on the skin of my rig from the outside and it flexes VERY easily! PLUS if the sun hits the right spot on the wall in the morning, on a section of the skin that doesn't have the quilted insulation, you can see the sunlight through the skin. Has anybody else noticed stuff like this too?
I just wonder cause I get the impression that some of the other FBRVs like Burros, UHauls, & such have a thick wall, or a double wall sort of set up, so do they have as much flex as we do, or sunshining through?
I also remember some other Compact owner talking about how when he was remodeling his unit he'd removed all the cupboards and such, and that his roof sagged until he put them back, that apparently our internal features like that (Cabinets, cupboards, etc) are doing double duty as structure/support as well.
Anyway, was just wondering if anybody else had noticed/thought about any of that...

Yes, even through the lining material I can see light in my Boler B1700. My lining has a different type of foam from the Ensolite in most Bolers (and early Scamps); they have a black rubber foam and thicker plastic skin over it, which likely blocks the light better. Fiberglass is naturally translucent, and apparently the gelcoat on the outside is not thick enough to completely block light.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I believe that this is common, and I'm sure the cabinets are significant to supporting the shell of my Boler B1700.

Has anybody tried to put brakes on one of these? Do you have to replace the axel or is there a flange for the brakes?
