Alright folks, Ming and I are all in.
Last week, we discovered a Burro
13' in our neighbor's front yard. She and her husband have owned the trailer for 33 years, built it as a kit in 1980! We promised them that we would breathe new life into their little trailer with a complete renovation, and now are fortunate enough to have it in our back yard.
It needs a lot of work. At first glance, the floor is rotted out and cracking everywhere, and we will need to replace the rusty axle
with a new one that has electric brakes
. Our plan is to build in a shower, install hardwood floors, and re-do the kitchen cabinets and bed area with updated furnishings. We will also add in some larger windows
, but may reconsider on the full-sunroof after reading other's posts on FGRV. We need something to replace the "upside down shag runner" that has since gone a bit out of style.
We will keep you all updated with our progress, but in the meantime it would be great to hear from all of you. We've seen the Burrostream and read Mike and Shane's posts on repairing Burro
floors, but please post anything else that you think would be useful or inspirational. We're game for anything!
Jared and Ming
