Jen..great minds think alike, we must have been posting at the same time about the paneling and the rivets.

I don't know that what we're seeing are rivets or rivet caps as in the Scamp/Casita family. Could just as easily be the heads of carriage bolts and, if a ruff n ready retrofit, just as likely. Regular spacing near top and near bottom suggests bolted
interior nailers--two stringers or more likely a series of vertical studs either of which would be consistent with light planking or wainscoting on the interior.

Missing the molded-in two level "rub strip" of the Burro although maybe the blue stripe and the lighting of the foto obscures that detail. Good opportunity for us to refresh our memories of detail with some additional fotos of Clouds and Burros.

Your best source of information re. titling a no-paperwork trailer is your own State DMV. If I was contemplating such a purchase, I'd check that out very carefully before buying.

The seller's description was that he has insulated it, and then put in the tongue and groove paneling. I didn't go look at it because the weather isn't cooperating. It was for sale west of the cities and he was asking $1500. I would love to get my hands on a Cloud and totally redo it (someone here has a red one....that's what I would want to do). He said he had a ton of calls. I would guess any rivets (or bolts) that weren't supposed to be there had to do with the paneling....I attached the pics cuz I know how much people here like the pictures! Who knows....maybe someone here will end up buying it and turning it back into a camper!

Here is the seller's description - "will fish 3 or 4 and sleep 2. about 9 x 6, has 5 holes, 2 rattle reels, 3 new 12 volt lights, 2 12 volt fans. just put new floor, tongue and groove panneling, and carpet. also insulated the walls. i have buckets to put through holes to the ice. has 2 new speakers with cd/dvd player in it. needs nothing."

Well...I guess that's right so long as all you want to do is fish through the floor in it!

Happy trails...

But look at all the drains you'd have if something developed a water leak?

That poor Burro. He might get a good price for it but if he had only known what he had before he converted it.

It may be rather heavy with that paneling, but I think it looks grand. Put in a bed but leave the rest as is... it would be a hoot to show off the interior at any CG! "Yep, we don't need no porta potti, we jes' throw open a floor hatch or use this here bucket," and watch their faces.

or you could do it all up in an igloo theme outside and inside and during the trailer tours just be sitting there with fishing rods and the line going through the floor
