1974 Hunter Compact II (??)

Hey! First post so please be patient. My husband and I inherited this little cutie and we know almost nothing about it. The posts in this community rescued us as we renovate what we think may be a 1974 Hunter Compact II. Ive (hopefully) attached some pictures of before and after. Let me just say, we are far from where we want to be. But for now, this works for our family of 4 (two under 5yo). Please offer whatever information, suggestions, and tips you have!!

So far we have:
-Primed and painted interior and exterior
-Rebuilt and reinforced cusions that can be used in bed or couch position
-Purchased and attached table hardware for center mount

That new paint job is a nice improvement. It's great to see the trailer in the campground, helping you make memories with the kids!

Oh, that's right!! It seems to me like there are two names for a Hunter I or the Hunter Compact and I don't know nearly enough, let alone value. We are having a great time with it though!

1974 Hunter Compact II (??)

Hunter made 3 models. The Compact Jr. Is a smaller and lighter trailer with a different shell- narrower and boxy- with a full length pop-top. Sleeping is lengthwise on a generous 70"x72" front dinette bed. The rear galley is small.

The Compact I and Compact II are built using the same wider, clamshell-style shell with a shorter pop-top over the rear galley only.

The Compact II has more cabinetry, more appliances, and a toilet closet with black tank. The U-shaped front dinette makes into a transverse double bed.

The Compact I (seems to be the rarest of the three) is more basic with a smaller galley, no toilet, icebox, and (I think) a larger dinette bed.

All three are great 1- or 2-person layouts. Rear entry makes for excellent space utilization, but they can be somewhat tongue light when empty.

As with any vintage trailer, value is quite variable based on condition mainly, along with location and season.

Wow, thank you! Do you this is a Hunter I? That is what the door sticker says but I suppose the door could be a replacement. We are really enjoying whatever it is!

It is extremely unlikey that the door on it is not the original one if it has a sticker on it. The same door was used on all the models. Be very good to your door because there are no replacements around for that door.

Thank you SO much! It's really exciting to hear from people that are familiar with such a niche project!

Not 100% sure on the differences between the I and II, but I think the II had a toilet with black tank in the compartment by the door on the street side.

I'll bet you could pull up some old threads on the Hunter trailers using the "Site Search/Google" option at the bottom of the search menu in the task bar under your log-in information.

Kelly, that is a nice looking Hunter I you have there and I believe they are rare among the Hunter campers. We love our Compact II. Notice the walls on your camper that divide the dining area/beds from the kitchen area. Do you see those nice curves? I believe that is a Hunter I distinctive. The other Hunter campers have straight dividing walls. Enjoy!

Yenno, I've noticed that difference in my research but never had a definitive answer. Thank you!!!

I love the colors too. It really puts the rarity into perspective when we are at campgrounds because so many people stop and ask to take a look. Multiple camp hosts have even asked if we're selling. Of course, this early in the adventure the answer is always no.
