This trailer has been in inside storage for 34 years and is absolutely beautiful! The outside fiberglass finish and decals are perfect. The inside appears as though no one has ever used it. No Dust Bunnies anywhere! Using the FiberglassRV Buyer's Check List, these are the only noticable repairs needed:
Side window screens are missing
Propane tank still has old valve
Tongue and rear bumper need paint touchup
Tires appear to be the ORIGINAL, but hold air.
Screens in pop-top have 2-3 minor tears.
No record of last wheel bearing pack.

$3,500

Wouldja look at that?!!??!!

It's a time capsule, for sure! How rare to find one (of ANY defunct brand) in almost showroom condition!

Donna, do you have that 3.5k you owe me?

Would it be possible to add some of the pictures (particularly the interior) to the Compact Jr. album?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

NOW I know why mine was painted charcoal gray! No self-respecting carpet layer would own a PINK trailer.

I certainly wouldn't go for pink - but I really wish we'd come to the end of the "everything has to be polar white" era of RVs. Yeah, yeah - there's a certain 'temp. control practical aspect' to it, but it's really really boring. The auto manufacturers figured out they should offer more than one color back in the 1930s. I think it's about time the RV folks figured that out too.

The trailer looks great! Hopefully, somebody will purchase it that will love it and take good care of it.

Since the interior photo is a little dark, I'm posting a link of the cushion fabric. Pure 1970's.

I just returned from the Bluebonnet Rally and the joke was "I bet you're the guy in the white Casita" which was true in the case of 60 of the trailers there. My beige Compact Jr. was the only non-white trailer. (edit: There was 1 silver Airstream Bambi)

Compact made trailers that were beige, white, canary yellow, lime green, and robin's egg blue (thanks Frederick). Mine was lime green but has been painted beige.

Here in San Diego, there has been a Compact Junior, in original condition, that is "Robin's Egg Blue"

At the right price, I could learn to love pink! (Some folks will do anything to get an egg!) And I don't think anyone would believe that I earned it selling Mary Kay cosmetics!

Not sure why you mentioned Pink, it's Beige!
Like Donna says, it's in showroom condition.

Folks, it is Beige! Not sure where Pink came from.
Would like to get this sold ASAP.

Ah the current owners are on board Don't worry about the Pink comment that came from Gina and was an off shoot of a previous reply mentioning the Compact came in several different colors.

I've been receiving e-mails from Bill and Jacquie G. about this trailer and Bill is mighty impressed with the overall quality of the trailer. We're all hoping an active member of this forum makes the purchase.

I know you're anxious to sell and I know it will happen soon...it's a VERY nice trailer.

I'm not "up" on Compact Jr. trailers. How long is it? Does it have a toilet and shower? I can't tell from the pictures. How much does it weigh? Sorry to ask so many questions, but I'm just not familiar with it.
