Sharyn,

I was mistaken. My current tires are Carlisle ST175/80D13.

I'm no authority on tires, but I would stick with ST's instead of P's. Load rating is important too, I would assume the higher the better, at least 1100 lbs. ({1700 + gear}/2).

When I replace mine, I'll probably go with the Goodyear Marathon ST185/80R13. I always like to choose the largest tire possible for the vehicle and wheel combination, and I'm partial to Goodyear.

Recently Got a Burro

I must be the the newest member of this site, having joined about 15 minutes ago after enjoying surfing the site.

My wife & I acquired a 1999 Burro 17' Wide Body about a year ago and are having a ball with it. After 30 years of tent camping, this is real luxury -- with a shower, john, comfy bed. I read a lot of horror stories on the Yahoo Burro Owners site (which made me check the trailer closely when we bought it), but other than tightening several water hose connections and fixing an electrical system short, we've experienced no problems. We're up to 34 nights of camping in it in Arizona, Utah, and California.

The Burro had no manuals in it when we purchased it. I obtained manuals for the A/C and hot water heater by calling the manufacturers. From the owner of an older (pre-California) Burro, I obtained the information he had, including wiring and plumbing diagrams. Much of that information doesn't appear applicable to the newer model we have. If the information would be informative to any of you other Burro owners, send me an e-mail and I'll let you know in more detail what I've got.

Hi John,

YES PLEASE!!! :banana
(sorry for the shouting, I just got real excited).

I am very interested in getting that info. We've always been tent campers, and this is our first RV/trailer, so I need lots of help. I would like copies of anything you've got, via EMail, USMail, Fax, whatever works for you. I sent you an Email with my contact addresses and numbers. I look forward to hearing from you.
John

Hi,
We have our Burro! :dance
We picked it up on Saturday. It's great! We stopped for a night on the way home to see how it would sleep. Except for some mildew smell from being closed up, it was really nice. now I have to do all the cleaning and washing and sprucing up. The hardest part was the old owner saying goodbye. He and his wife had camped for over 30 years and because of age, just can't do it anymore. he was very sad and gave us 30 years worth of camping brochures for all over New England. We are going to send him pictures so that he can see it going to good use. Anyway, here's a picture before any cleaning, scrubbing or the such. I hope to have her looking good soon.
Our little burrito - my husbands name for it
