Good morning everyone,
We are new to the world of egg campers and have finally spotted one close to home. We have been researching this for a little while now and for the last couple hours been using the search function on this site in different categories to gain some more knowlege.
It is a 1981 burro
, 13', that has been sitting dormant for quite a few years. The outside has a few places of pitting where the origional finish has come off and you can see the fiberglass material below. There are two small areas like this and from what I have read on this site, marine epoxy, or some kind of gel coat is the best way to fix this (please let me know if Im wrong). The frame was breifly inspected and looked to be ok, but we are going back this evening to check out the front "a" to see what has been done, if anything. It looks like the rest of the camper looks to be in relitively fair shape other than just sitting outside for quite awhile. The cushions and upholstery look to be in pretty good shape yet. I have not talked to the owner yet, just the person who owns the property where the camper is sitting. The only thing mechanically this needs is a jack stand, as it is sitting on a cement block. He said the furnace
works, but it has been sitting awhile. It does have the spare tire yet (laying inside on the floor).
I guess what I am asking is, from what we have been seeing on the web, ebay, and for sale
listings, does this sound like a "ok" buy for the thousand dollar range the guy wants to get out of it? Remember we have limited knowlege of these trailers, but are trying to learn as much as we can before buying a money pit.
thanks in advance (and if this topic is in the wrong forum, I appologize)
