Hello to all of you out there. I've 1 question if anybody could help, that would be great. My quest, is does anyone know how I go about finding or locating info, on a parts list for a 1981 BURRO 13 footer? I'm interested in buying a new or reconditioned door, and maybe other things. Thank you

I don't think you can just buy a door for a Burro, since the company is out of business. A Scamp or Casita door is different, and wouldn't work.

Your door is unique and specific to that model, unfortunately.

You could attempt to fashion one, but it may be btter to just overhaul the one you have. You can retrofit hardware with a bit of work.

What is wrong with the door that makes it need replacing?

If your problem is that the hinge screws are loose because the wood inside the door is rotten, I just had some success with products made by The Rot Doctor here in Seattle. I was able to introduce their penetrating sealer through the existing screw holes, and then follow up with fiberglass resin pumped in with a caulking gun. It worked well enough that I was able to eliminate the oversized screws that someone had used previously and revert to the original #10 screws, and they all seem to be holding fine.

If you need more detail, just ask.

I've also found that most of the little fittings (water tank drain valve, electrical pass-through, faucet) are standard RV stuff, easily available on the Web. I've been dealing with Dyers in Texas, mostly because they were sly enough to include a printed catalog with my first order.
