Due to allergies and multiple chemical sensitivities, I've determined that I need a double-hulled make (easy to clean, doesn't hold odors), preferably with a fiberglass floor (plywood encased in fiberglass would be okay, might be able to deal with plain plywood if I put foil over it and then tile or hardwood).

I live in Bend, Oregon. Something in the Pacific Northwest, California, or Southwest would be easiest for me to check out and get home, though I'm open to other possibilities.

Also, since I'll be towing it with a white Toyota Previa (which looks like a white jelly bean or an egg, itself), it'd be great fun if the trailer I end up finding is one of the "eggier" models, like a little burro.

Thanks!

You might also want to consider the earlier Scamps or Bolers with Ensolite on the walls. It's really easy to scrub down when neccessary.

For sealing the floor - all in all, other than foil - once you're down to the raw floor - it might be just as easy and more effective to mix up some fiberglass resin and spread it out over the plywood. I'd think you'd have a much more effective seal that way.

Would you be planning on replacing the wooden doors as well? One or two members have used plastic cutting-board material as a replacement. Might be a good idea given your requirements.

Check the referrals - there's an American Adventure (looks like a Burro or UHaul) in Puyallup, WA

Leslie...
Check out the Trails West Campster in the for sale forum. It has not insulation on the walls. Just fiberglass. It looks like a very clean unit. It might be what you want, and the price is really attractive! And its not too far from you.

Hi, All--

Thanks for the helpful information!

I just took delivery this morning of a 2000 widebody Burro that I bought Saturday, sight-unseen (and smell unsmelled) from an ad in RVTrader online, down in San Diego.

So far, I am actually having a bad reaction to it (see original post), but am very hopeful that once I'm through removing carpet, cushions, toilet chemicals, etc. it will be just the thing. If not, I'll be looking into those leads you've sent in the last couple of days !

N.b.--I came across the "American Adventure" several days ago, before locating this Burro, and called the number. Waited on tenterhooks...no reply.

I'll keep everyone posted as to whether the one I found works out , or whether I'm still "Eggless in Oregon."

Thanks again,
Leslie
