question for burro owners...

As many of you are following, i looked at a burro last night. Something about it seemed odd...in the closet and in the cupboards above the sink, there wasn't fiberglass inside....just the shiny silver back of the insulation. Is this how it is supposed to be?

Our Escondido has tasteful, wood-grain hardboard closing out the inside of those lockers atop the aluminum backed batt (one long piece bent to hull contour overhead, two smaller end pieces held in place by a hardening caulk. Can't speak to earlier Burros. Might have been removed. If so, small loss. In a larger sense, this IS "how it is supposed to be". The inner shell is molded such that in some areas it is an inner wall or ceiling and in others the finish (gelcoat) side of lockers. No real difference between the "void" that is the inside of lockers and the narrower void between "walls" (inner and outer hull). What you'd be looking at without the insulation would be the rough, layup sides of both shells. A higher level of finish inside lockers (more shiny gelcoat) would have required additional molded parts.

Hi,
I have a 1981 Burro. In the family since new. It was purchased with the insulation kit and that is exactly how mine is. I have it in the upper cabinets above the sink but not in the closet. I have covered it with flexible plastic/vinyl to create a cleaner surface.

Inside finish

I seem to remember that the molded parts to finish the inside of the cabinets and closet were extra-cost options, so I don't think anything was removed. It was probably not put there in the first place.
