Restoring a 1972 Hunter Compact Jr!


We joined because we are going to be restoring a Hunter Compact Jr that has been in our family since 1972. For at least a decade it has been out of use, gathering dust and a few wasps nests while sitting in a parking lot. But now it's time for another generation to enjoy camping!

The camper is in acceptable shape all original parts, no holes in the fiberglass, and has no water damage, but the frame is rusty and the interior sure is dirty and musty. We already repacked bearings and replaced wheels before moving it to our home, so we think the restoration should be able to make it good-as-new (or better!) especially with all the wisdom available here.

Congrats on your "one owner" camper, and welcome to the Fiberglass RV forum family. It should clean up to new like condition and service you well. Happy Trails

I just bought this exact same trailer yesterday, except mine is beige-ish. I will be watching for your restoration progress since I'll have to follow you here soon.
