I am selling my 1973 Hunter Compact Jr. trailer. I bought it in 2019 when it was just me and my wife. Our family has since grown to two kids and a large dog. We have out grown the trailer and would like it to go to a good owner. It weighs about 1,100 lbs and we ve had no problems pulling with our 2017 Honda CRV. We ve even used it in winter for weekend camping ski trips.

When I purchased I realized there was wood rot so I gutted the trailer, including taking the body off. I am fairly handy, but I am not an expert. I spent a lot of time reading forums and watching YouTube learning how to do things. While this trailer for its age is in good shape, please know that it s still a project.

It s 6ft wide by 13ft length including hitch . Fits in a regular size garage. Standing height with top down is about 5 6. Standing height with top up is about 6 2.

Below is a pretty exhaustive list of what is new or original:

  1. Had welding done on the trailer itself where areas had failing welds
  2. New rims amp; tires. I also have the set it came with for spares because the tread is still good.
  3. New 3/4 inch wood floor that spans the whole foot print.
  4. Painted the bottom of 3/4 in wood with a waterproofing material to protect from outside elements.
  5. New vinyl/LVP plank waterproof flooring
  6. New cushions and cushion covers. We always covered them with a queen size sheet for sleeping.
  7. New window shades
  8. New pop up canvas with 4 zip down screened windows made by a woman in AZ that specializes in building boat covers. There is a very tiny tear that was my fault that could use a patch. It hasn t bothered me so I haven t done it.
  9. New benches and table that I built.
  10. On the right inside used to be closet storage and a propane fridge. I turned this space into a baby Crib/storage with a large open area underneath for our 100lb Bernese Mt dog to sleep.
  11. I rebuilt the entire stove area, cabinets, and table top.
  12. 3 Burner stove is original and works
  13. Hood vent and fiberglass surround above the stove are original.
  14. Sink is original and in good shape.
  15. New hand pump faucet.
  16. Faucet for city water hookup needs attention. It leaks and we don t ever use that feature so I didn t get around to fixing.
  17. All new gas lines through out
  18. New fresh water tank x gallons
  19. New water lines
  20. Vinyl walls are original, but I repainted with vinyl paint.
  21. Windows are original, but I re screened them.
  22. New rechargeable puck lights 6 with remote for inside.
  23. New trailer hookup wiring and new taillights.
  24. All new 2020 screws, bolts, washers through out.
  25. New Propex HS2000 propane heater with thermostat. Even without insulation, it keeps this trailer warm. I use a Bluetti 70s 750watt hr power station battery and it powers the heater for almost 40 hours straight and barely uses much of the propane.
  26. The original door was a mess. I used the original framing and retrofitted it with a new window, foam insulation, skinning, doorknob, and lock. The door is my least favorite and could use some attention. I started building a new door that I will throw in.
  27. The owner had painted over the original yellow gel coat. I tried every technique to strip the paint down to original to try and salvage, but ended up just sanding down to start over. I did all the painting myself. It has several coats of primer and rolled on 3 5 layers of Brightside marine paint. After 4 years it s unfortunately starting to form small bubbles/chip. This might be because I was trying to paint when fall was kicking in and it wasn t ideal weather. It might be as simple as a light sand and re roll.
  28. I did not bother rewiring trailer for 12v/110 because the propane heater and inside lights are the only thing I power. Rechargeable magnet puck lights last us more than a weekend and our portable power station is more than enough to take care of our power needs.

I have a link to an album of the renovation, but not allowed to post in here.
