A classic Compact Jr. awaiting restoration

11/10/2008

Months ago we spotted this little gem locked away in a bayside junkyard. We tucked a note in the window frame with our phone numbers in case someone might be interested in getting rid of what appears to be a Compact Jr. trailer manufactured between 1970 and 1973.

We returned the other day to find that the trailer (and our note) is still sitting there… awaiting restoration… including (probably) a new frame if the nearby rusted shopping cart is any indication.

Why don’t you attach a larger sign, so that the owner, passing by will stop and notice the sign, rather than the little note.

Well that would make sense now wouldn’t it. Too bad we’re many miles away now, though… next time…

Fiberglass RV dot com is a great place to buy and sell fiberglass trailers. That’s how we found ours!
