Candi,

There are two on ebay right now. One is a Boler, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BOLER-TRAVE...sspagenameZWDVW, expiring today. The other one is a Casita, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1999-Casita...sspagenameZWDVW, expiring in 6 days.

CindyL

PS: I am jealous too, but if I could convince the other half of a longer trailer, I would want a Burro. I assume that the longer ones are as tall as the shorter ones like I have, so that the hubby can stand in it.

Cindy, it seems taller to me, but I am short LOL!

It fit in my driveway just fine, with plenty to spare. Car can go in with it and everything.

I have the 13 cleared out, and yes, you can fill in the bigger space rather quickly. I am still going to have to use tubs! At least the access to the cubbies is easier, and bigger. I loose all the nice stuff I had under the sink as there is a buncha infrastructure there, but I can manage.

The dogs seem to think it's fun. They have been sleeping around me working all morning.

Pictures when it's done. I just want to get stuff packed in for now.

Here is "The McMansion" in the Big Bear convention center parking lot. (Yes, Big Bear has a convention center. Why? I haven't a clue )
Sounds like the perfect place for a Burro convention. It's a great looking trailer and we all are waiting for the interior photos. Here comes the dancin' okra!

Wow, What a pretty Burro!! What I really like is the location of the roof A/C. Mine is where you have your wonderful roof vent/sunroof so it makes the area rght above the stove lower than anywhere else - and no vent there!! The roof A/C sits at a slant. Mr repair guy said I could not sit it in the middle, I think because of the seam. But, I guess he was WRONG!!

I can't tell, is yours cut in to the seam or sitting on top of it with a bracket?

Glad you got home okay. Told you the Jeep would pull like a champ.The first trip was a white knuckle scary one for us too!! Christi

Christi, I am poorly qualified to tell you ANYTHING about the AC, other than I did turn it on, and it does work

It does apeear to come thru the seam yes. Kurt said it sits kind of crooked. This is a factory install, so I am sure Burro thought you could put it there. It definately does not sit flush on the inside, but I see no evidence of leaking or any problem it causes.

Here is a pic of how it sits inside, if that helps.

The big dinette in these is hard to photograph, it's practically in it's own room.

Here is my favorite thing.. My big bright unused kitchen!

All I had to do with this thing, everywhere, including the bath, was give it a dusting and wipe down with 409.. didn't even have to scrub.

Most folk with these leave the big room as a bed, and the front dinette up. I found the front area a bit too confining because of the bath placement, so I did the exact opposite. The big dinette remains, with a couple seats without the table in front of it, and I made the front dinette the bed, gaucho. As you can see, the dog approves. It's plenty big for just me, and provides a sofa area too.

The whole trailer needs to be personalized. I have already done some.. but..

blue is not my thing. I have no choice with the cushions, they are new and it would be a shame to recover them completely. I have more of those large brown carpets and covered the rear seats in them. They don't slip and I don't mind if the dog gets on them.

The carpet will come out, and a wood floor will go in.

The curtains, I think I will dye hunter green, but I don't know if you can dye something that is already a color?

The bathroom needs some sort of medicine cabinet or cupbaord. What have others done?
