Hi everyone! We just bought a 1975 13 foot Burro and we need to restore the inside. We are hoping to fine someone out there who might have pics or a manual to help us with how the layout was when they were built.

All kinds of documents to help you in the left nav bar under [b]Resources... look in the Document Center. There's also a manual for the Burro, that shows the "exploded" view. I think it was created for the kit Burro.

13 foot Burros and other "egg" style rigs generally all have the same floorplan. This is a Scamp, but it could also be a casita, or a Boler, or a Trailmite, or a Uhaul..You get the idea.

Checking Donnas link will give you a better idea of the construction, and checking the Burros in the albums will give you pics of one of your vintage.

If mine was barebones on the inside I would consider making it like the Scamp 13 deluxe with front bathroom.
What a beauty of a camper in a very small space.

The problem with Burros, and Uhauls is..

the inner shell IS the furniture, and this does not give one much, if any, choice as to where things will go.

I suppose if you are good with glass and structural engineering, you could do just about anything you want with one, but it would be a LOT of work.

We found this in Longbeach so it might have been the same one. Thank everyone for there comments they all help. There are a few things we want to customize different than what we see with other trailers. The 13 foot is a small space to work with but we can see how to utilize every area to make it count. We are going to get the outside repaired and painted in two weeks and also have custom fiberglass cabinets made on the inside. We will be posting pic as the project comes along if you all would like to see.

Pictures?? We LOVE pictures!!! Can't wait to see your mods and how your paint job comes out...if you do a search, I remember reading someone finding a place that had their Burro decals re-made, if that's of interest to you at all.

Congratulations on your "new" Burro. Mine is an '81. I got it a few years ago in pretty sad shape. The restoration was an extended winter project that really was fun. It's a great trailer, flexible and really not so tough to modify or restore, and I found replacement parts mostly by keeping an eagle eye out on ebay.

Here's a link to my little slide show of most of the modifications I made.

Hi, Greg & Karrie - and congrats on finding this Burro and giving it a new life! We wish you lots of fun during the process of making it distinctly your own, and many safe travels & happy memories once the work is done. Hmmm, is it ever done?

Myron - the slideshow of your rehab project is great, and the finished product is indeed "sweet". Happy camping to you, too.
Take care, L 'n D

I'm creating downloadable decal files for the Document center and want to include the Burro logo. please shoot as straight on as you can and IM me when you have it and I'll give you my email.
thanx,
Scott

Myron, what a great youtube video. It was very inspiring. I have a soft spot for the Burros and you did an incredible remodel. Wow!
