Which Compact?

There are two different Compact trailers.

The Compact Jr. is a narrower, lighter, more basic trailer with a 68x75" longways bed and a smaller galley. The shell is simple and box-shaped.

The Compact I and Compact II are wider, heavier and more fully equipped (the II was the deluxe version and included a toilet with black tank). They have a larger galley, queen or full transverse bed in front depending on model, and a more sculpted clamshell-shaped shell.

Were you looking for one of them in particular?

Jon, Which one comes with the twin beds and no toilet as Porta Pottie works best as It can be dumped just about anywhere, we rarely if ever stay in campgrounds so boondocking is our way and about ever 2 weeks will find a nice CG for a shower and laundry facilities.
I Like the larger kitchen area as long as I can get a 32"WX75"long Bed, a easy install table & remove. Do need Fresh water tank for say 25 gallons, led lighting, solar panel and 1000W inverter, with spare plugs on board will add 1" of extra insulation for cold weather camping like right now, she is real wet and damp on the West Coast.
Sorry to cut into Steffens conversation but I Like this trailer to and it is the one I would want as is slightly larger than a Cadet.

The Compact Jr. might work as twins because the bed/dinette runs front to back. The benches are pretty narrow in stock configuration. I'm guessing 23-24" wide with a similar width aisle.

Not sure, but the Trailswest Campster might also work. It's similar to the Compact Jr., but made by a different manufacturer.

The Campster is definitely in the same class. Ours has 6.5 foot beds but they are only about 24" wide unless you make it up into a king, we don't have the cushions for that but make it ok as two singles.

We can leave the table up or put it down. On our next trip, we are going to try putting a dog cushion on the table between us for our German Shepard so we can take a cat, yes a cat.

We have a fair amount of storage on the curb side and about 4 feet of counter space with a sink on the driver's side. The tank is only 12 gallons, with a hand pump, but that is plenty for us. Our last 2 rigs had full bath but we are getting used to getting by with no toilet, no shower and no hot water (and no heat).

BTW, our Casita had the optional 25 gallon tank and we could have gotten by with the standard 16. A lot of these decisions depend on exactly how you are going to use it and for how long at a time.
