Usually I have a long list of mods to do over the winter, but I have caught up well enough so that the list is very short. I'm hoping to add a MaxxFan so that the parachute-like shape of the current fan cover can be eliminated. Otherwise, as you can see, the Burro is ready to roll. On the other hand, any mod suggestions would be mostly welcome.

How about a good coat of wax Per, no wait... maybe some paint....nah, how about a match... to light the fire. Just kinda looks like a bonfire wanting to happen.

One addition you could make is to have one of those long, dangling, sticky fly traps full of dead flies. Would add a nice detail.

It's calling for an electric jack, one that'll jack it high enough for a new one to be run under it.

I LOVE what you have done with the place Per.. so much nicer than all that fiberglass and fixture stuff you had in it last time I saw.

I think it would be a good time to sell it Per, while it is at it's peak operationally.
The more you use it will just run it down and drop its value.

Hi Per!! I'm pretty naive re: modifications & was going to ask you for suggestions for my 13', but not so sure!! I only need a new floor!!! Mine's an 82, & I think it looks like its in great shape, comparatively speaking!!

Karen:
I think you are safest not to ask for my suggestions based on what I have "done" with the one in the picture.

I lied: that is not a Burro. It is a unit I found in Fossil, Oregon, one of my favorite little out-of-the-way towns. On display near their museum, I believe it was used as a small camper for a sheepherder or something similar. I'm sure yours looks a whole lot better!
