This is the FG trailer we saw last week in Nueva Casas Grandes, Mexico. It looked well used---no license plate on the back.

We tried to follow it, but it was speeding out of town and we were staying! I did, however, quickly shot this picture through our VERY dirty windshield.

What is it??

It is not a Burro. The scuplties for the tailights are different. The squarish ones are a Uhaul mark.

Most likely a Uhaul with a paint job, but as I recall, there is one other brand of similar ilk to the Hauls and Burros.

Let me check the albums, it may be in there. Can't remember the name.

Nope, not in there. It isn't common.. wish I could remember the name!

Karen K. has a 1985 Companion, that looks like a Uhaul.

This trailer looked like someone had been living in it for a long time. One interesting mod, which doesn't show up well in the picture, was the addition of an old fashion white ceramic light fixture in the back that holds a regular lightbulb.

So, maybe a U-Haul??

Unquestionably UHaul. :94 The tail lights, lights above the back window, running lights are all standard UHaul, and the fixture on top looks like the back end of the solar panel.

Thanks---I think I remember that there was a solar panel---but they were driving way too fast through town for us to take a really good look.

It's an oocupational hazard. :15 When towing a Burro, you haul donkey - when towing a UHaul, you haul - er - a similar but different beast. :l31
