1974 Hunter Compact II

Update Feb. 24, 2020: Yes, the trailer is still available.

For sale is this clean 1974 Hunter Compact II fiberglass trailer. While the specs online say that these weigh about 1100 pounds, the information plate on the outside of the trailer says:

Date: 5 73 May 1973

GVWR: 1570

GAWR front: 1500

Serial C1393

Original dealer sticker: Roy's Cars and Trailers, Ogden, Utah.

The title and registration say that it is a 1974 model. It belonged to my late mother, who towed her pride and joy with her 4 cyl Chrysler PT Cruiser on many camping trips. We aren't able to take the time to go camping, so we are looking for a home for it.

All original interior and exterior. The only exceptions are the air conditioner that requires hookup, some glue spots on the kitchen walls where hooks came off over time, the paper towel holder, and metal plates installed to hold curtain rods. Original equipment includes sink with handpump faucet, 3 burner stove that works well, ice box that needs drain tube replaced [NOTE: not a fridge], clean water tank, also it must have a grey water tank, but I have not found it yet, propane furnace/heater which my mother said worked. All cabinets and drawers are original and work and include a pantry, a closet, and multiple drawers and hatches, plus storage under the seat cushions. Seat cushions convert to a bed, as per normal. All windows work, screens are in good condition. NO LEAKS. The quilted naugahyde ceiling and walls are in perfect condition, the original linoleum floor is in very good condition, the cushions are in very good condition, the foam is still springy. I would say the fabric is starting to feel a little brittle, but lots of wear left in them, no tears or open seams and the foam is still comfy. [UPDATE: One long cushion has a seam coming apart on the backside]. Original wallpaper in the closet/potty room very clean. No potty included, my mother used a bucket toilet.

POP TOP: There is one 2" hole in the vinyl that could be patched, but other than that, all of the material is there and functioning including zippers and screens. The clear vinyl is somewhat yellowed and one would need to be careful with the material, but it is not cracking apart, it is still functional. Absolutely no leaks when pop top is in closed position.[Note: this is an update from my original info on pop top. Sorry, no photos of it open.]

There are 2 spots where the exterior fiberglass got dinged, very much on the surface, no water leakage at all. There is a rock pockmark in one window, and the frame of that window has a little bent piece, will bend back. Potable water intake is missing the cap. External vent in kitchen needs replacing. There is some surface rust on the frame. Any rust is very light, only the surface, the frame is in excellent condition for its age. Tires are good, spare tire is good. Has propane bottle. One interior light doesn't work, may just need bulb [turns out this is probably a 12V light]. The floor is solid, one very small, 1" to 2" weaker place by door, at the corner of threshold.

One exterior running light cover is missing, there is a replacement in a drawer inside. The door is tweaked, it got sprung open in a wind storm, cracked a window, and it doesn't seal completely [please see link in comments below that shows a smart repair method]. My mother used window sticky foam strips to close the opening. We have kept a fan running in the trailer the whole time it's been here, so it DOES NOT smell musty and there is no mold.

Comes with the original owner's manual. My mother made curtains for it, and it also comes with some vintage kitchen ware a set of matching dishes with some silverware, a metal drip coffee pot, and a kettle for boiling water.

Please contact me if you have any questions

Thank you.

Hi, I was wondering if you can send me the measurements of the entry door.
I'm interested in your camper, but would need to replace or repair the door. I'd like to figure out how much to repair it, but need the dimensions. Also the exterior height, hoping it will fit through my 7' garage door.

Thanks, Ang

Hi Ang,
Thanks for writing. Here are the measurements you requested:
The height from the ground to the top of the closed popup is 81-3/4". 7-ft = 84".
The door itself measures 24-3/8" x 58-1/4". This measurement includes the trim that overlaps the opening for the door.
The opening for the door measures 23-1/2" x 57-3/8".

Please let me know if you need any further information. If you need additional photos, closeups or anything, just let me know.

best wishes,
--Victoria

Door Tweak, information about repair

DOOR TWEAKED: I have some information to add, which is that someone on this forum shared with me that they did a repair to their identical trailer door, and the amazing thing is they didn't even have to take it off the hinges. Here is the link to that post:

I actually read all of her renovation posts last week... and yes that was impressive how she straighten out the door. Is the window missing where the a/c unit is inserted?

Yes, that would have to be replaced. But, what is missing is the section that went there-- no damage was done to the window frame.

UPDATED MATERIAL: I have edited my description to include information on the pop top. We had some folks here looking at it and we opened it up. There is one small hole about 2", that could be taped. Everything else is functional and in working order. The vinyl is yellowing some, but still clear, not cracking apart but would need to be treated with care.
