I really love my burro
, and it too was a project purchase. But if I had $3k at the time, I would have easily bought one in better shape. HOWEVER- each renovation is ours, and we can do it our way.
I am currently at:
The cost of the trailer plus:
$200 for tires
$100 for new trailer wiring (long story)
$30 new vent
$128 new padding-will need to replace with thicker stuff
$5 for electric outlet port cover
$50 plexiglass for window replacements
$40 for cabinet facing material (my latest project)
$20 for temporary floor covering
$20 for poly-gloss from walmart...(not real happy with what I've done so far)
$10 window coverings
$10 for cutting board to cover hole from where the stove was (temp)
Still lots to do-and going cheap has ended up with more work in the future-and more dollars. However, we have been camping with it...still need to fix the lighting
the cabinet doors...A/C installation, Propane
lines, running lights
. We haven't been thrown out of the camp ground-even in its less than pristine shape.
I did buy one of those First-up gazebos from Walmart tho-love it. Just a little short stepping out of the camper tho.
It is a work in progress.
But I have enjoyed it-
