Zep is a somewhat controversial product discussed on many threads on this forum. It is a clear acrylic floor finish you can purchase at most Home Depots or lowes .personally it works for me extremely well,it is applied easily in a thin layering of multiple coats to a cleaned surface . It will adhere differently to different types of surfaces ,flat roofs where water and snow sit on it will not last as long and will have to be done more often but I personally find it much easier to use than any wax or other product and much cheaper.you can check the posts at " check this out not polyglow '" thread for more info .

Aw, repainting a Burro. I had my Burro repainted by an automotive painter. Silver and indigo blue metallic. 2 stage, base coat/clear coat. He also did the graphics from pictures I provided. Because it was metallic paint, he charged me $1500. Nonmetallic would have been cheaper. I might add that the painter is a custom car and vintage trailer painter and is located in Perris, CA.

Hi Gage! I've contacted 2 different places.. One guy would use the fiberglass paint after sanding, put on Gel coat & 2 coats of clear coat for $1500.00.. He usually does classic cars for $3500.00! Other guy feels fleet paint like for semis + clear coat is the way..they also have a lot of fiberglass on hood, fenders, etc.. That would be $1000.00... Which doe you think is the way to go?? Your Burro is very fancy!! Love the blue/silver combination.. I'm just going to keep Burrito white!!

Hi, Where do you get the big "Burro" logo? We're looking for a big amerigo logo, but don't have any idea where to even start looking. (Also, no rush--we still haven't gotten the new plywood floor in yet.)

Go back and do a search in the Burro Owner's Forum. Somebody started a large thread about this a couple of years ago and the upshot was that somebody was reproducing the brown and black and another (red and black) combination as well. That's where I would start looking since their website was linked there.

Just for grins I looked it up. Seems like I was the last one to post there with this address, which i just confirmed;

Burro Camper Decals

I keep telling myself I need to repaint my Burro and give it new decals, but life keeps getting in the way. Maybe next year, or the next, or...

Hi, thanks! They do indeed have the big Burro logo decals...have sent them a message to see if they also do amerigo decals.


Burros are $75 a set, which is probably a pair. Thanks again!
