We did it! We picked up our new little Burro
and had our first journey, all i can say is WaHooo!
We picked him up in Iowa during a storm of biblical proportions. Took a couple hours looking him over, hooking it up and becoming friends with the people we bought him from, then drove to a truck stop in DeMoines and "camped" our first night. It was wet, it was cold but it was wonderful!!! Spent the better part of a week visiting both sides of the family in Cincinnati,(all the little ladies at " the home" gave the Burro
their stamp of approval) and from there went up to Madison to spend a couple nights at a state park visiting with friends, then meandered on home via I-90. And ya'll are right, everybody thought it was "way too cool!" All told about 2000 miles without any problems and the HHR towed it easily between 65-75 on the highway. Although the mileage was better and the ride more fun on the secondary roads at 50-55. Thank you all for telling us what to look for, it's not perfect but pretty darn close! The tires
are almost new, the bearings were just packed last year, the upholstery is original but looks new. It has an electric/propane refrigerator
that works GREAT. The fiberglass inside and out is near perfect. And it came with all the original paperwork and the original key. Driving thru THE STORM we found 2 small leaks
in the front and back windows
but during an average rain they were dry. We'd like to replace the rubber anyway The carpeting was in pretty good shape but we just want to replace it too, probably with a good vinyl. The floor is solid. So, we'll spend a couple weeks putting our mark on it and then look forward to heading to...anywhere!
