Burro Logo

Here is a homemade high definition logo.
Not the best but I am going to get it printed on a decal
Looks OK from a distance!

Another Logo

Here's another...............
I'll post pictures after I order the decal and put it on my trailer.

BTW- I have my Burro parked in my driveway. When I bought her she was all dirty and falling apart and parts were dragging down the road as I pulled her home.

Now she's sparkling white, new tires, new lights, new frame, new paint, new floor, new electrical, new propane system, new cushions, new curtains, now people are stopping and asking if they can look inside!

I can't get the door to lock and I don't have a key so I just trust that the universe will keep her and her contents safe. I don't keep anything of extreme value inside and I figure, even if I had a lock, all it would take is a screwdriver and a hammer for someone to get inside. This way, if someone wants in, at least they won't damage the trailer.

I'm having fun with the restoration. I wish others would post more pics too!

BTW- I selected a luxury vinyl planking for the floor made by Kinectco, it's water resistant and really easy to install.

The original decals on my unrestored (the outside shell, at least) Burro have gotten pretty faded, so when VA offered permanent, personalized license plates, I jumped on "83 Burro" as seen in my avatar. People still ask me what it is. I guess you just can't win!

To the OP re: your lock. If you have a good, operational lock sans key, take it to any good locksmith. He can make a "bang key" with the proper blank thinned down, then use it to cut one or more (I voted for "more") regular keys from that one. It was a lot cheaper than buying a whole new lock, and mine has worked perfectly.

My side logos started lifting around the edges so I just removed them.

Trespassers may not damage the door, but have been known to cause damage inside. I agree with Froggy. I removed the lockset from the door of my Compact Jr and took it to a local locksmith shop. It was an interesting process to observe, and I had 2 keys made for less than $5.00

In the case of my then over 25 year old Burro, the lock set had become a collector's item, going for $150-200 or more when you could find them at all from flea-Bay or other sites, so I knew I wanted to save what I had if possible. Like FLS, I took my whole lock assembly off (about 3-4 screws, IIRC) and carried it to the locksmith. I think he charged about $5 or so for the first key, then once he had gone through the process once, additional keys were available at the normal price of about 95, so I had him cut several "just in case."

Those old locks are a little delicate, but if cared for, they will do pretty well, and since they were original to the unit, you don't have to worry about getting them to fit and line up with the rest of the assemblies. Of course while it was off of the door I could clean and lube mine, so it should last a long time more. I really dislike the looks of a hasp and padlock like so many people seem to resort to out of desperation, and having a proper key cut turned out to be one of the cheapest and easiest fixes I had to do with my resto work!

I took your advice and found an awesome locksmith on Craigslist. He came to my house, looked at the lock and told me it was a great older lock and not to get rid of it. He took the cylinder out and replaced it and then made a few tweaks to the lock and now it works PERFECTLY and I have a key. He made two trips in his truck to my driveway, fixed it, tuned it, and installed it and charged me $29! I gave him a $10 tip for gas and shook his hand and thanked him profusely!
