My camera has been recharging for a little while, so I'll go out and take some now. We live off of I-80 just about 12 miles above Auburn. Want to drive up and see it today?

I have a family member who is an mechanical engineer to go up and look at it with me so I can get any input on structural.
Thanks for your input and advice everybody. I will take all that into consideration when I look at the trailer. mgaedic2..if I don't buy it, will fill you in on the trailer condition.
I checked that trillium as well. The owner was a nice guy, he was firm at $3000. I think the trailer was in decent shape, but it needed some work on the frame, doors and windows. At the end I decided not to buy it which was good as I need sometging that fits my garage.

Thanks for your advice you guys. I went to look at the Compact Jr today in Twain Harte with my nephew who is an engineer. He said the trailer was solid and the frame in decent shape. Some wiring issues, tires fair but been sitting for awhile. Couldn't get the taillights to work so couldn't have towed it home even if I wanted it. Just very frustrated that really all I want is a gutted Casita, Boler, Trillium, or a similar fiberglass trailer. I would think there would be more projects out there than I'm seeing and no one seems to get rid of them. So..................looking still for that one deal trailer with no amenities. If I don't find one soon, gonna settle on a cargo trailer, but that is not really what I want.

If you are looking at anything more than 10 years old, it's always a good idea to buy an inexpensive set of magnetic trailer lights at Harbor Freight to take alone with you. I can tell you from personal experiences, lights almost never all work on trailers that aren't being used on a regular basis. Less than $20 and you are good to go no matter what. Ooops, also take along a roll of duct tape to attach the lights with, the magnets don't always have a good surface to stick to.

And the original wiring harness on most Compacts was installed under the inside walls coverings and is a Bi**h to repair. You will usually just have to run all new wires and tuck them into the frame, it's a lot easier and faster

Shar, a lot of folks have trailers winterized and the holidays just concluded. I know you're anxious, but more trailers will come up for sale closer to the western US camping season.
