Hi: Shirley LaMoine... Our collective eye sights were clouded by the Foreign Ei. Should have piqued to the raised hinge and front/back window lips. Ten lashes with a strand of wet fiberglass!!!
Don't ya just love a mystery?

Me, too, 'cause initially it looks so much like a UHaul.

Okay, now I'm starting to doubt my posting.... looking at the hinge area, that's the way Burro is made... not the Cloud. Scratch my post!!!

As far as the second one, Alf had given me some great leads. But he's right, there not much to find. I do believe Alf is right that the wording on the back of the trailer is probably a owners doing versus a brand name.
Was fun searching for a answer, would have been more fun if I could read German!

I went back and made corrections to the earlier posts...

Another difference between the Cloud and the Burro is that the Cloud has a massive rear bumper and the Burro's bumper is like other fiberglass trailers.

Shirley, Post #2 from Donna D identified the Burro, so no question there. I think that there is a thread somewhere on this forum about it. So now who is the manufacturer of the little 'mystery egg' in the other photo? Sure is a little cutie, eh?

Robin - What I meant to say was that I'd recognize a Burro like mine anywhere. I wish that mine had such a wonderful paint job.

The 1st pic. is a my 1983 Burro but I can not take credit for how it looks
I bought it like it is from Mark Shaffer who is on this form. Here is the Thread so you can see how he did it and yes he did a great job.

The door hinge mounts for the Burro are standard stock for a Sac City 13. I know all too well as I had to rebuild mine when the door blew off.

Thanks for posting the thread, Troy. I remember following this when Mark did it. It's a great looking camper! I love the metallic paint jobs
