As expected, my Burro purchase requires some floor repair. Any Burro owners familiar with how the inner and outer shells attach both to the floor and to the trailer frame?
Underneath, I see about 50 screws attaching the floor to the frame and crossmembers from above. Does the trailer shell attach to the floor and then the floor attach to the frame, or do the shell(s) bolt to the frame directly somewhere that I'm missing?
I'd like to replace the whole floor floor and be done with it. Advice anyone?
Also, someone in a different thread had clearance issues getting their trailer in/out of the garage. My solution seems to be in using eight-inch boat trailer wheels off my jonboat trailer and removing the vent on top. Lowers the overall height considerably.
Thanks to all...

Thanks Martin, Donna, and Gina for your replies. Seems like the logical factory method would be to attach the inner shell to the floor and then mate the outer shell halves to the inner shell, and finally, tabbing the outer perimeter of the outer shell to the floor underneath. I've looked the whole process over fairly well and by reversing that procedure (providing its accurate..?) I may
be able to remove the subfloor and floor. I'm fairly certain that those unseen window leaks
from 25 year old rubber gaskets allowed water to drain between the walls and into/onto the plywood. Once wet and being sandwiched between FG layers, it would never dry. When I remove the windows
and vent, I'm thinking of joining the inner/outer shells in those openings with FG and resin to prevent water infiltration into the cavity between the shells. The frame is in good shape with only surface scaling in some areas and no cracks or bends. I think I'll reinforce the common weak areas as a preventive measure. Only real issues are the floor and tires
...and possibly "dead" rubber in the torsion axle
suspension. What we get ourselves into in the pursuit of fun.
Thanks again from this hillbilly.
