Well all good things do have to come to an end don't they? We decided not to rebuild the Compact. There was just too much work involved that we don't have knowledge to do and not enough time to mess with it. So, La Petite Retreat (still love the name and will hold it for another camper down the road) will become a lawn cart. Such a sad ending to a cute camper BUT hubby will use enjoy using it when it finally gets finished.
Part of the reason I think is I had so much fun camping in the LoFlyte that I just couldn't see not giving her a proper fix up. So we're going to concentrate on the LoFlyte and put the compact to rest. I've put the parts up on craigslist and Tin Can Tourists and we'll see what happens. The skin went to the metal recyclers and the body and interior went to the dump.
Good bye little compact!
