1971 Compact Jr.

Thanks for welcoming me aboard. Just picked up poppie and hoping for some guidance. Being in Canada, these are rare beasts. In fact she is the only one in Saskatchewan.

So here are my questions

Is a cover for the front window standard or an option

Has anyone created a users manual. The electrical has me a bit stymied.

Standard interior shots. Mine has no washroom. Anyone added an area for a portapottie.

There will be more. Thanks for your help.

Compact Jr

We put a portapottie in the cupboard below the closet. We moved the battery to the front - outside behind the propane tank. We then rewired everything. Both 12v and 120v - adding an access hatch for the 120v external power cable.
Good Luck with your project.
We may have the only Compact Jr on Vancouver Island!

Red face Not the only CJ in Saskatchewan

"CJ" sits in our yard in Watrous after having been restored in the past 4 months. We were able to have it out twice for a 'trial run' and we are hooked!!!
Go slowly with your renovation and set yourself at least 2 full years to complete the task. My wife and I have redecorated the interior (paint and reupholstering), rewired both the 12v and 120v, added a solar LED light (great), and built a moveable step (access to a tall doorstep).
Next season we plan to clean and repolish the exterior, address some strange storage issues, and attend at least one "egg" convention. The "egg" convention???????? A gathering of fiberglas campers of which there will be one at Manitou Regional Campground in mid-July 2017.

Good luck with your project and don't be afraid to contact us to share successes and challenges.(or just commisserate about being a proud owner!!)

Hunter Compact bathroom

Hi Janice,
Congrats on your camper purchase. I purchased a Hunter Compact Jr
that originally had no bathroom. During my rebuild I widened the garmet
closet to make a "pottie" room. My rebuild took 1.5 years. See pictures in my profile page.
