Is this a Burro?

What is this? Looks like it would be perfect for somebody talented enough to design and build their own custom interior. Unfort that's not us, lol.

I am no expert, but either a Burro or a U-Haul.

From the bumper I'm guessing U-Haul

The outside definitely looks U-haul, specifically where the Uhaul camper logo would have been on the side. The bumper also is U-haul shaped but pushed out more than mine.
My concern would be the modifications to the inside and the possible effect on the stability of the camper. The whole kitchen and back seats made from the inner fiberglass wall is removed. Is the closet removed? This would be a problem as the closet is an important part for giving the roof stability as I understand.
Kind of sad to see as I love the interior of my U-haul with its good looking double fiberglass walls. But you are right, someone more talented than me might be able to make it into something special.

Looks like a U-Haul CT13 exterior with some part of the inner hull mold missing. The inner mold includes seats, counter, cupboards, closet, furnace, etc., and is a fundamental element in the CT13's structural integrity. The U-Haul CT13 was designed to be a double hull structure and I would not be confident of an egg from which the inner hull has been stripped.<_<

Burro?

The single tongue, rather than A-frame, the bumper and what appears to be perimeter frame says its a Uhaul. Lee

I looked at his photobucket pictures. Yes, the closet is gone... He only left the kitchen overhead cabinets, but cut them to combine the 2 cabinet doors into one. His main Idea was to make this a portable Kitchen for a food business, for carnivals and fairs. A lot of small trailers get cut up this way.

I wonder if he found out the hard way that if put a generator and propane bottle on the rear extension how unstable that thing will be.
