Hi...just purchased my first trailer

Hello all! I just purchased a 1974 Compact II.
I am NEW to the trailer experience but I am very excited. I lover my little trailer - it is perfect.
I have several questions and I hope that I will find the answers on this board.

My first question...does anyone have a manual?
I honestly do not even know how to fill the water tank, or drain the "faciliites". Maybe someone could recommend a book?

I look forward to chatting with you all and hopefully attending a rally.

Take care,
Michelle

Congratulations to the new owners. Make your first shake down camping trip close to home or close to shopping places to get what you forgot to bring. I have fond memories of camping at Elora Gorge when growing up. Real close to home. but avoid May 24 as it is notorious for parties. Do not know if there is still camping, though a different experience, at Bingeman Park.

Michelle, you should try to attend Maryhill May 20-22, there will be 2 1974 Compact II's in attendance, Mine and Barb B's. P.S. I don't have a manual but I do have a copy of the original sales brochure. P.P.S. We live in Marysville, neighbor. Enjoy your new egg Chuck

Chuck -
Thank you for the heads up. I saw the sales brochure in the document center - that was pretty cool to see. I haven't had much luck on the manual, I am beginning to think it may not exist.

Do you live in Marysville, WA or Marysville, OH?

Thank you!
Michelle

I honestly do not even know how to fill the water tank, or drain the "faciliites" do you have a toilet?
