Most of the pics I have seen do not have the fiberglass ?thingy? over the front window, this one does. Was this an option or have most just gone by the way-side?

I am glad that someone in central Iowa snapped that up. Where in Iowa, may I ask? I only ask because I have a conference in Des Moines in June. Not a problem at all to stop by and relieve you of the trailer. You might not have the space to store it with that other big guy. Besides, I grew up in Iowa, went to college there for 3 degrees, and love the state. Us Iowans need to stick together. It would make a great little sibling to my 16' UHaul.

Hi Maureen! Great buy! (I just love understatements).

If you are talking about the Gravel Shield covering the front window they were probably an option. Visit the defunct but ghostly appearing Burro website and you'll see that they were an option a few years down the line at least. In fact, some were outfitted with just the front ones for protection. Mine also had a rear one, for what purpose I'm not really sure except for privacy?

Be wary of some of the offers you have gotten here. The shame of it all: even moderators get into it. Most are really well known "trailer flippers," although I'm still trying to finish my psychoanalysis of individual members, because I realize each individual is different. I would never stoop to something like that.

$549 and that's my final offer.

Maureen, don't listen to these guys... gravel guard indeed... it's actually to keep these people from seeing how lovely the interior of your new find really is. Per is really one of those wacko Burro owners, so you can't pay any attention to him at all. (Oh, and NEVER ask him how much a Burro weighs... he's got so much wiring in his, if he stripped it all out and made a ball, it'd probably be the size of the moon) So... my offer and two hour cash delivery of that cash remains on the table...

Roger

Maureen: see what kind of surreal universe you have entered!

Roger used to have a 17' Burro. Sold it, and has been on a regret trip ever since. He does touch on one of the unique benefits of the double-hulled Burros: easy to wire.

And Roger: I am conscious of weight and always try to compensate when I add something. Why, the other day I removed some of the vinyl striping I had put on some time ago.

Actually everyone, I believe Maureen has likely gotten the message that her Burrito is somewhat of a bargain.

Sadly, Per is right! I really do miss the Burro...

Bogus. I never use those twisty-dohickeys. And especially not yellow ones.

I always weld the connections. Then wrap them in several layers of electrical tape, then heatshrink tubing.
Very heavy but reliable.

Donna, that is SO yesterday. Wait 'til I show you the latest remote-controlled fan. Touchscreen. Backlit.

Maureen, this is not something to be emulated.

Well, you all have quite the group here. I am quickly finding out.

I have a few more questions.

Are original parts available anywhere?

Are the trailers worth more original or modified? I have been pondering laminant floor.

I have noticed weakness in the floor right by the door, repair ideas? I have some angle iron and was thinking I could attach it to either side of the frame below the door, good idea or not?

Also the original water pump is gone and a faucet hooked to the city water feed, they have disconnected the water tank entirely. just left the lines so that is no biggy, simple enought to route so I may just go ahead and buy new water line.

I need to find a hand pump. New? or Should I search for original?

If I need to go to a different forum for these questions somebody redirect me.

Maureen,

We have a section a little higher up called:
"[b]Problem Solving -- Owners Helping Owners
Share your problems, concerns, fixes of Molded Fiberglass Trailers."

That would be a good place to ask your questions. If you ask one question at a time, New Topic for each, it makes searching later easier and the entire thread can stay on topic. Well we hope.
