Hello, I was debating which length to get for my compact. I am also going to use it for a mobile studio as well as family camping trips so the shorter might be a better choice. Is a 10' too long out or should I go with the 8' do you think.
I just recieved the samples of colors I have been thinking about from Marti yesterday and will finish my choices up soon from her.
I really like parade seagull and perhaps the regimental putty.

I have a 1970 Compact, have not had the awning up yet but the track for it looks to be closer to 8ft than 10ft. Im guessing at this of course knowing the body of ours is about 10ft. Ours ends a little bit in front of the rear side marker clearance light and above or just after the front side marker clearance light.
If you can't fix it with a hammer you have an electrical problem.
Are you talking about width or depth? If you're talking about width, I think "offspringin" is right, 10' would be too wide (that's the length of the entire trailer). As far as depth, it's up to you, but you might want to visualize a trailer length coming out from the side. That's the size we're looking at doing for our '59 Compact.
Depth is where I am coming from sorry for the confusion...
I have the width figured out with going a little less than 8 ft. My thought was if 10 ft. is too deep to even worry about. I know it is up to me but, I just want some Shasta Compact owners opinions on if they wish they would have went one way or another in choosing depth.
