Hey Folks,

Can anyone ID this camper for me? I'm interested in buying, fixing it up, and giving it to a family member, but I'd like to know more about it and what it might be worth.

Thanks!

Chris

If the top is a pop-up, it looks like a Compact Junior. Value depends on the condition and whether you would plan on doing a paint job. Here's one in Phoenix:

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/rvs/408777371.html for $2250.

Here's a link to the Craigslist ad: http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/rvs/412342741.html which has a few more pictures, if a real Compact expert wants to confirm the ID.

Yeah, a paint job gone bad. The seller is calling this "camo paint"? Although it's listed in the Portland, OR craigslist... it's actually in Goldendale, WA which is east by a 100 miles and north across the river.

Thanks everyone. My first guess was a Compact Jr., but I'm not familiar enough with them to know for sure. Yeah, interesting paint job. Looks like Ted Nugent tagged it! Not sure it it's worth the trip and effort... even for a family member!

Chris, it would be worth asking for a few more interior photos, and if it looks good, go see the trailer. If all it needs is a paint job, its a good deal. A lot of people paint their own eggs, and a good paint job can look terrific (but is a lot of work.) There is a checklist on this website for what to look for as far as condition of the trailer.

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/manuals.html

Look for Buyer's Check List about halfway down the page.

Since it is a pop-top, look at that specifically- what condition is the plastic, how is the mechanism working?

It sounds as if this guy is having trouble selling, which either means the paint job turns people off or the trailer has other problems. If you are willing to paint, and nothing else is wrong that would cost a lot to fix, might be a nice trailer.

Shucks- ---We're getting the "Buy Another One" bug. I showed it to Carrie and her reply was "Ya wanna go look at it? It's not far, only below Yakima isn't it?" I really had to think about it..... Besides, it's the right color to go hunting in.... Anyway, as others have said today, if it is solid, don't let the paint slow you down. It looks clean inside. Larry

It's definitely a Compact Jr. But what is that odd bulge at the front of the pop-up section?

I'm trying to think of the weak points of my sister's Compact Jr. The spare tire stowage was, ahem, "informal"--and I had to move it out on the tongue. The floor is plywood, so there's potential for rot there. And the canvas around the popup section--you oughta check that for soundness. Other than that, a pretty simple & straightforward trailer.

At least the doors son't tend to sag, like Bolers
