Looks very nice; but, I can't see where $10,000 was invested.

I agree, Tom. Maybe that has to do with the name in the listing, "Jesse James"? Hmmm...

Perhaps he calculated the hours he put into it; (and he pays himself pretty well!)

I believe this trailer is owned by one of our members JesseJames.

If you're interested, you could always contact him through this forum. Here's a couple of postings about the trailer: 1972 Compact Jr., Fully restored

and 1972 Compact Jr. Tacoma Washington, Full restored

In both cases, these postings were in the 'Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailers for Sale or Rent" forum.

I completely AGREE with you about pricing and FULL restoration.
Interesting that this is the very same guy (HOW could I ever forget the email name of JesseJames!!!!) that I contacted about 6 months ago in regard to his ad on our forum for a 'trailer wanted to buy'. He sounded so very interested in my Scamp that I was selling but never followed up with me on it...guess he found this old clunker to buy and now wants a way over the top price...when has anyone heard of a 13', without a full bathroom, going for over $6,000?
Please let us all KNOW if this is the going price, as I might just want to put my beloved retro Compact II on the market, as well!
PS I believe in pricing a trailer as close to the going market price...why go over 3,000? It's ludicrous, and you get no credibility as a seller. This is about the oddest ad I've seen.
