Trailer: 1972 Burro
Posts: 66
This weekend was my first time camping in the Burro.
Things I learned... She tows very well
has minor leaks between the inner and outer shell. The water puddles in the upper cabinet and in the well with the electrical cord.
The heater fan is noisy
The dog take up over half the bed
If you line up the E's brake light and the seam on the trailer it only takes 3 try to get her hitched.
I can't back worth poo. I now have ruts in my yard and need to wash the mud off the front of the trailer.

Thats what I did with mine until I got the hitch mirror.

The dog take up over half the bed
Get used to it

It's a good combo...

get those leaks attended to right away!

Alternative to the hitch mirror:

Two small horseshoe magnets. (tall thin ones... at least 2" tall so the dowel will stick straight up and be somewhat sturdy)
Two small wooden dowles. (4' long and maybe 3/16" in diameter. Try to have the dowel and the magnet close to the same thickness.)

Using black electrical tape, afix each dowel to a magnet....
(this "drawing" depicts the result... although upside down.. *like in Australia* )


Now place one on top of the coupler on your trailer (the dowel centered) and the other one centered atop the ball on your receiver.... then gently back up bringing the dowels together..... when the one on your tow vehicle "moves" ..... presto!

They sell these at trailer supply places for like $40. Called "Hitching Posts" or something like that. Mine cost $12 for the magnets and dowels.... I already had the tape!
