82 Burro Frame replacement

Has anyone replaced their frame? What are the specs to get a new one or is it more cost effective to find someone to build a new one? How hard is it to remove the shell to then put on a new frame? I guess I won't be able to salvage my floor and will have to replace that too?....ugghh

If you search for "frame," you'll have much better luck. We all have trailers, but consider that the entire body and frame.

The best path for you may depend on how much time, money, and patience you have and your skill level. What level of finished product you are looking for may also affect what you do. How much do you love your little Burro?

Give me an idea of where you stand on the questions above and I can try to help get you going. I'm about 90% complete with a frame off restoration of my Burro, so I have been through the process.


BTW... I would not advise towing this camper as it is. The weakest part of the frame is the bend at the tongue. The frame is already thin metal tubing. It looks like you have significant rust and damage at this point. I'd bet your floor is shot also. A solid floor keeps the frame stiff and prevents frame flexing. A weak floor will allow frame flexing and metal fatigue. These campers are prone to frame failures. I think the two reasons above are the primary root causes. Don't want you or anyone else to get hurt.

I love my Burro!! Not afraid to get dirty with her! All this rust is in the rear not the tongue. I believe the floor was already replaced years ago by PO. I've got plenty of patience but I may curse a little during the process...lol
I'm all ears!
