Smaller trailers

Blossom - Having a smaller fiberglass trailer is a blast. You're going to love it. Once you get comfortable with it (which won't take long at all), you'll be grinning from ear to ear when people start making comments about it's size.

Charles came up with a great approach....if you ever need help, just check this out:

I moved my personal anecdote about small trailers to its own thread. After you check it out, be sure to add your own stories to it. These trailers are not only fun to camp in, they create fun where ever they go!

Nobody has popped up with the weight yet. Do I recall correctly that the Compact Jr weighs about 850 lbs? I know it's light.

We had a yellow Compact Jr in the mid-70's that we pulled with a Peugeot 404 Station Wagon. Toured almost all the lower 48 states.

It did weigh 850 lb. empty and about 1200 lb. with all our stuff in it.

The Peugeot had a 1.6 liter engine and was pretty slow in the mountains. Once we got stopped for road construction in the Rockies and didn't have enough power to get started. A couple of construction workers gave us a push-off by hand which did the trick.

I forgot to answer the question about the interior.

As I remember, ours was just painted with white latex on the interior. There was no insulation. However, it was desperately needed. It dripped in the morning and when cooking.

they didn't insulate the Compact Jr in the mid-70's? wonder why not. mines a 75 (duh) and it's insulated. I was just out there and she is hot today - in the 80s - sitting right in the sun with the windows shut. need some shade :dance
