I didn't know this project was an obstacle in my life that needed. Now everything is cool.I lost sleep over it, found myself driving on highway frontage roads in wheat fields with four hours of sleep looking for goodies. I'm 36, it was like one-hundred days till X-mas like never before. I'm broke now. To start. This Burro wasn't abused too badly, it was local,I was lucky. I think the interior is inferior to other fiberglass campers. I'm glad this is the one. I started gutting it before a snowstorm on March 2nd the day i got it. I put new lam floors, interior, replaced the door latch with a real door latch(old type is junk),rewired all, bought proper led(48x2)on both sides. I also have battery type too; Don't want to be in the dark. I also added a Fantastic 4000 tech fan. I went to a carpet store chose the pattern, cut it my self, and called Stan the binding man. My talented girlfriend Little Bear did all the sewing, without her I don't know... I tried my hardest not to drill holes, and did well. I need to have some crankin tunes so I found a sterio that has all the inputs added an amp 12in sub for home use. The 50w solar panel powers everything. Since it gets hot here I put my rolling A/C(not solar) unit up front and vented it through the window. Some tools, and materials were found at the local Recource yard. Seals were at the upholstery shop. I am so glad it's done.

All I can say is WOW!

That is the most beautiful interior in a Burro that I have seen after months of searching. One question... were the shelves already hung in front and back when you got it, or did you add them? They make such a great difference in the storage space available. It appears that they have recessed lighting (can lights?) installed. Is this the case? How are they working out for you? (OK, so I asked more than one question, you were showing it off, right?) Thanks for sharing what is a real treasure of a build... nothing really radical, but obviously done with lots of planning and great ideas.

Regards,
Froggie

Elie, fantastic job on the interior. I think this story is a familiar one with many of us, I didn't know what I was getting into and how much time and work it was going to be to finish. Now that it's done, you have a completely custom trailer for your needs, and one that looks cool to boot. Great job.

It's lovely! I would like to hear more about the overhead shelves, too.

For the lighting on the shelves I used cheap battery powered for versatility. The primary LED lights are at the end of the cabinet on each side. Each have 48 LED off solar. They give plenty of light, and the fiberglass reflects well. I payed $9 apiece.

The shelves were there. I am lucky this one had them; I just reinforced. Every one is different.

Very nice. Jen, the shelves are much like mine. They are made from a repurposed shower stall using the edges for shelf ledges. Make a cardboard template. Cut the shelves from the outside edges. Attach with hinges (for brackets) and use rivets to attach the hinges through the interior layer of fiberglass. Put masking tape around the drill bit so you know how deep to go -about a quarter inch. They make a nice sturdy shelf. rb

Great remodel!

I really would love to know how you are mounting your tv? I have a 17ft burro and am having a difficult time deciding how and where to mount a 22 inch vizeo tv with a non standard mounting bracket.

Seeing your install, I am inspired because I never thought about mounting it up front about the table.

I would love to hear details on your install.

With much appreciation,

Laurie

I had an older Dell monitor sitting around with a strong base with swivel. The ledge for the bunk looked sturdy so I cut a piece of lam wood (the same as floor) glued it and put an aluminum trim around to finish. I then cut the excess metal from the base to fit, drilled two 1/4 in holes through and used bolt-wing nut combo with washers. It comes out in a minute. Then I ran wires to the back (audio). I covered the VGA cable with white duct tape. Not a TV. We use it to stream videos off the computer via cell phone connection. I hope this inspires you.
