It's been a long, long winter but the Compact JR is emerging from the garage! We will be doing the unveiling in July at the rally! Wanted to let you know we are still alive! The ugly CAMO camper is looking really amazing!

Ok, Ok, Donna twisted our arms
If you remember we bought the CJ in Goldendale, WA on Sept 9th. Then we brought it home and shared pics of it with you. It was called by most the mystey camper. Cuz it was painted this awful CAMO color. (Donna - the pics are still out there on this site somewhere) So, anyway- our lil' CJ has been in hibernation all winter...and it was a long cold one here in Central Oregon. We spent hours pouring over ideas for the restoral of this vintage trailer. (all the while watching gas prices and thanking God that we'd chosen a lightweight fiberglass trailer.) So- here are some pics of the metamophisis.. to share...without revealing the entire machine. Remember- the unveiling will be on July 17-20 at the Oregon Gathering!

WOW! No trouble finding yours at a campground. Looks like a real showstopper.

Hi, Jesse! We do have a couple of interior shots in our Compact Album.

By the way, you need to update your Member Profile (via "My Controls"), to change your RV Type - since you obviously found one! (Congrats!)
