Well, we finally have our Compact Jr. We drove to Galena, Il. to get the trailer
The owner was Bobby-a very nice man-we had an an enjoyable visit.
He first gave us a tour of Galena-a very historic town with beautiful old buildings-built on hills and narrow roads. Very interesting town.
He then explained the working parts of the Compact Jr. and all the pros and cons
-we found very few cons.
We visited for awhile then hooked up the trailer then headed on our way to Branson, Mo.
We spent 3 nights in the camper and have several changes we want to do to it-several repairs, just minor.
Like the big bed in the camper-not much room though with the bed.
We did stop at WalMart and buy a smaller table-the one in the camper was heavy and to big for us-we like a little more room to move around.
We have some screens to replace on the top, put in a refrigerator, fix a leak in the faucet connection, new wheels and a few other little things.
Wife will decorate also-other than that we like the trailer-althought it is not as `cute` as a Casita or Burro-the queen bed is a plus.
Pictures to come as soon as we get them taken.

Congratulations and welcome to the Compact conitgent. I will warn you fixing these trailers to your specifications is addictive and frustrating if you do not have the time. Enjoy.
