Trailer: 1982 Burro 13 foot

Hi Indiana Todd,
I purchased a 30 year old fiberglass 13 foot Burro when I retired. I like projects and have had a few in the years since my purchase. Every problem begins with the "should I buy a new one instead of getting into this again" discussion. Every problem ends up with the wonderful people on this site bumping me in the right fix-it direction. I like projects and so far, they have all been successes and every project makes me understand and love my little Burro more. I love camping - so the projects get pushed in the fast mode so I can go on the road! So, for me, Bennie the Burro is the ideal balance between camping and projects.

If I'm completely honest and had to do it all over again....................
I'd hope to win a large sum of money so we could buy a spanking new tow vehicle (that ran well on fresh air) and a camper big enough for two to move in at the same time! I'd be delighted to have one with a space for a porta pottie so I didn't have to take care to step around it all the time (as it takes up a great chunk of the available floor).

Thank you, Hazel! No matter how hard we try, not ALL of us can honestly say we can be completely happy with the smallest of trailers. If you can, great! I tried..... I really, really tried; but our 13 footer, cute as it was, lasted no longer than it took me to talk my DH into selling it. And the process can be stressful; it isn't something to be taken lightly. So, Indiana Todd, you are wise to do your research.

I am happy with our wee camper - it was a good price and it works well enough for us. Seems like there is ALWAYS something bigger, fancier, more convenient etc. and conspicuous consumption is all around us. I learned way back in childhood that there is no point in crying for the moon!

That's a great question. You could rephrase it, "What did/do you want in your second /next trailer."

My wife and I just became empty nesters. Our college girl might camp again with us, but not often. So our Scamp 16 is looking a little bigger than necessary. We might want to exchange that front bunk for a dinette, or a bathroom. And I'm still looking for a wider bed, where we don't have to sleep a'spoonin' all the time. So if we found a trailer with those features, I'd consider a trade.

Look at your own priorities. Do you need to park it in a small space, or fit a growing family inside? Would you rather have to cook outside. or have to pee outside? And always, how much weight should you tow?
