Richard to the family. I see that you were not to sure on the year of the trailer but if there is no quilting on the walls and no sine it was removed I can tell you it is 1971 or 1972. they added the fabric to the 73 model year. Also just in case it is not listed somewhere the hitch is a 2 inch ball. might sound like something little but could save allot of headaches. and with pulling it that far for the first time I have some hints I learned the hard way. Be sure to try to tow it as level as possible. this was my first mistake, nose up is no good. also, if you notice that it is moving around allot behind you from side to side try putting some stuff in the nose of the camper. the compact JR is very light and especially up there if there is no propane in the tank. hope the trip goes well for you and you get it home safe.
No quilting-just raw fiberglass that has been painted white-would like to paint
it a beige-may do that before our next trip.
Haven`t had any swaying-tows really smooth.
We keep most heavy stuff in our e-150 van. It has a big motor so figure it is better to load it instead of keeping heavy items in the Compact.
Went from a Casita
, 13 ft. to our Compact. Really liked the Casita
but the bed was too small and we had no where to store it. City laws won`t let us keep it in the driveway or back yard.
We researched and found that a Compact Jr. would fit in our garage and the bed is bigger-something that makes for a better trip when hubby gets a good nights sleep.
Some people thought we were crazy for traveling so far for the camper-but we didn`t mind-it was worth it.
We are going to put in some new wiring and electric outlets, mounting for our little tv, and some shelf changes.
Trying to figure out how to post pictures-hubby is more talented in this area so need to wait until he has time.
Happy camping-Richard and Allie
