Trailer: 1973 Compact II (by Hunter)
Posts: 1
Well hello everyone!! Im a new owner!!
My hubby and I were looking for a small hotel room on wheels to do some weekend trips and found a 1973 Compact II on craigs list last night. We bought it and paid $900 for it. Its in pretty good condition for its age. It has a new porta potty and a new ice box type plug in fridge in it. Did we do good with the price? We are very happy with it! Im going to recover the original cushions and replace the curtains, and would like to redo the cabinet fronts. Do any of you have any sudgestions?
Also the pop top hasnt got the vinyl anymore it opens and the previous owner made some frames with screen in to put up instead, but Id like to get something like it originally had. I read somewhere last night someone had plans for makeing one, but I cant find the post now, again, any sudgestions would be realy welcome - thankyou so very much!! I just love it, and am so looking forward to doing some updates on it then useing it!!

Back in the day, I had paid $900 for just the empty shell, frame, and wheels of a Compact Jr. which I had to completely rebuild. I think you done good.
