Hi Lance, I am also a newbie and am picking up a shell only (no frame) for a 71 Hunter Compact Jr. this weekend (renting a flatbed trailer to haul it home). I'll have to scout around for an appropriate size trailer to mount it on (or have one built) and find windows
and fabricate a new size door since a PO gutted and modified it. You'll probably be ahead of me on your build so I'm looking forward to see what you will be doing to yours. I'm also currently working on restoring a '62 Aristocrat Lil Loafer non-fiberglass camper, so I have more than plenty enough to keep me busy for awhile!
