The Compact II's fiberglass body is wider than the Compact Jr's, to accommodate the absorption fridge and toilet closet side-by-side, by turning the bed sideways.

The Jr's bed is meant to sleep for-to-aft and is larger, or can be used as very narrow twin beds, but the closet next to the Icebox is skinnier and the kitchen on the other side is smaller than the II.

The Compact II's pop-top only increases the headroom in the rear half of the cabin, while the Compact Jr's pop-top is full length for-to-aft. These tops are over the center aisle only in both trailers. I think the two trailers have similar "roominess" feelings about them since they both cram a lot into a tiny space.

I was researching the size of the bed on the Compact II. I see in the last post that on this trailer you sleep crossways. I am 6'5" so am wondering if the bed will be long enough.
Thanks.
Don

Well, depends on how you sleep. My hubby is 6'3" and slept just fine in it. He sleeps a little curled so if you want to stretch out that might be tight.

I just measured the bed and its exactly 74" x 59" (6'2" x 4'11"). Hope that helps.

Thanks...will try to make it up there tomorrow afternoon if I am back from Sonora (already have an appt to look at at Compact Jr there) and if I don't make it back, will come up Friday morning. I will contact you tomorrow to arrange a time or you can just message me with a convenient time and address. (916) 719-2455. You can text me if that is more convenient. Up to you. Thanks so much!!

6'5" in most FGRV's is considered being height impared. You would have to sleep on an angle in most, especially a Compact-II.

Hi Ellen,

I was wondering. What is the actual exterior size of the camper? (especially height and width)

thank you,
Cristian

Factory Specs indicate that the Hunter Compact-II is 13' long, 78" wide and 81" high. That means that it will fit in a standard garage IF you have a roll up door. Some tilt-up doors may not clear, measure yours first. FWIW: It also sez that the bed is 59" x 75"

Thank you, Bob. That was great. Do you know how the Compact II and Compact Jr compare when it comes to exterior size?

There are brochures for the the II and Jr in the Document Center, under the Compact | Hunter Industries brand. Perhaps checking there will give you answers you seek: Fiberglass RV - Document Center - Compact | Hunter Industries

Can't you and Hubby pull the Compact II with your bikes? That way you would have a potty,place to rest have a snack etc.
