What are these two fiberglass egg's?

I know I should know what the first trailer is (swear I have seen that shape, style, tail lights before) , but it's not coming to me! Anyone know what it is?





But this second trailer, I truly can't remember ever seeing one. Cute but no idea what it is! Anyone have an idea?

The first one is a Burro, the second one looks like a European brand trailer

Yep, looks like a 1979 Yurpeun 1300.

Love how they painted around the windows on the Burro. Probably shouldn't say this but the second one looks like the back half of a hearse.

That first one is for sure a Burro but it has had som modifications done, I have never seen on with the door hinges coming out like this one does. I like it a lot. Where did you find that picture?

Thanks Donna! I don't know why the first one wasn't coming to me. I even went and searched before posting just to try and figure it out. But didn't even open the ... link.



Thomas, I will be sure to let everyone know the brand of the second one!

Don't Yur-pean trailers have doors on the wrong side?

Yes, most times. I have seen a few curb side. But more street side.

Door Sides: It has more to do with the particular country's driving side. RHD: UK, Japan and Australian/New Zealand built RV's are all left doors for curb side entry, The rest of europe are right side entry for LHD cars

Hi: Robin G... The second trailer is, I believe, a German built trailer called Golden Ei (egg). This picture appears on Flickr as taken in 2010 as a best vintage trailer picture. Google search Golden Ei Travel Trailer.

Thanks Alf! I thought I did try the google search, but I didn't put in (Ei), just E so maybe that's why I didn't find info. I will try again! Thanks for the tip!

Hi: Robin G... I didn't find much info just a larger photo of the same pic. It could be someones name for the trailer as it's gold. The word egg in German is Ei . That's as much as I know other than "Ein prosit".

I beg to differ, but the first one is a Burro. (I'd recognize my baby anywhere, even if it is painted to look like a little Airstream.) There are pictures of it in the Burro Photo Album, dated 07-25-2011. The plastic vents around the windows haven't been installed yet, but it is the very same trailer. Look at

That would explain the door hinges and window differences from a Cloud if it is your Burro. I didn't realize the Burros also had that nice little raised "pin stripe" or whatever you want to call it from the taillight going towards the front. I always thought that was original to the Cloud.
