Welcome from another Burro owner. We got our 1999 Burro about 5 years ago and have enjoyed it immensely. I was a bit gunshy about acquiring a Burro after reading all the complaints and problems folks were reporting about them on some websites, but we've had no significant problems with ours. We've hauled it to Montana, Texas, Nevada, and Colorado and have used it in the summer and winter. It's spacious enough, comfortable, easy to care for, warm in cold weather, and handy to get into out-of-the-way places. We graduated over the years from tents to VW camper to a pop-up to the Burro.
I can't comment on your question regarding your towing vehicle. We use a Toyota minivan (for mountainless trips) and Nissan Pathfinder (for hilly terrain) to tow ours. The actual weight
of ours, ready to use except for food and water is 2,400 pounds. I don't add water until we get to where we're going.
I've made a bunch of non-technical "improvements" (not dealing with electical components, axle
, etc.) to make it handier for us. These include braces to hold the upper kitchen cabinet doors open, a smaller front table, portable lights
over the front table, braces for the front table, shelves for the under-sink cabinet and closets, a silverware drawer, shock cord loops to secure the cabinet doors, a shelf over the foot of the bed, a receiver hitch on the bumper for a bike carrier, and portable brackets for carrying bicycles inside. Several of these modifications came from this website.
Drop me an E-mail with any Burro questions or topics you'd like to discuss. I'm taking off on a month-long bicycle trip the middle of next week (no, not towing the Burro with my bike), so will be out-of-touch from then until early October.
