Is this a burro or a uhaul?

It has been made into a fish house and the entire inside has been redone in cedar tongue and groove paneling.....price is right though....might be good for me to start on a renovation (and get one that is camp ready for this year). Only problem so far is no title....need to check into it more.....

Does not appear to be a UHaul due to the apparent bulge on top back and no water fill hatch which would be on that side. Does appears to be a 16' and is not a VT.

I thought it looked like a 16 in the picture as well, but he says the space inside is approximately 9x6 which would make it a 13 I think....

I am guessing Burro.

For any MN peeps that see this. No title, no license and no registration...how much of an issue is that here?

From what I can see of the rear light and the shape around the windows I would say a burro. I'm 98% sure.

It looks like a Cloud to me except for the vent up high and all the rivets. The water fill and the shore power are identical placement to my Cloud and the side windows are identical. Clouds didn't have those rivets though or that high up vent so not sure how to explain those.

Burro.

Beware no title. I don't know about MN, but if you search, you see lots of horror stories on this forum.

Now that is very interesting I have never come across a Cloud Before. I was just looking at the pictures of it With the exception of the bumper I do not see a difference between the Cloud and a burro. Have you compared them before and if so what are the differences?

I don't recall all those rivets on our 13' Burro. The larger Burros may be different or they were added later. It is NOT a UHaul.

I remember reading somewhere on this site that the Cloud trailers don't have the double hull? This of course would require a photo of the inside to verify. It otherwise has the Burro mold details.

I wonder if the inside paneling has something to do with the rivets?

I have to retract my earlier statement about the electric plug and the water fill cap being in the same place on my Cloud as it is in the picture posted here. I went home and looked and my electric plug is actually about a foot lower then the water fill cap. So now I am going to have to agree that this is probably a Burro. Not that there are much differences in the two campers, Clouds and Burros are really very similar. I went to the Burro section of the site and then the Cloud section and compared photos and the older Burros and the Clouds are almost identical. I think there was some rumor even that Burro bought their original molds from Apache Manufacturing (who made the Cloud), not sure if this is true or not but it would explain why they are almost exactly the same. Even the interiors basically twins. This doesn't explain however why there are rivets on this "Burro" because neither the Cloud nor the Burro used rivets on the outside skin like that. Are they being used to anchor the wood paneling that the original poster said was on the inside. Mysterious.
I am still wondering however how much it is selling for and where?
