It is with very heavy heart that I must let my 1999 20th Year Anniversary Edition 17 foot Burro
go. I am fulltiming
now, and it was cute as a traveler and short stay rig, but is much too small for me and the pets. I gave it a valiant try, but…I bought a larger rig. One, I will add, that I won’t love nearly as much as the Burro
It is not quite ready to go yet, I am still cleaning and fixing nit picky little things (I want it to be as nice as possible when it goes to its new home) and it will be a couple more days, however, I have had many inquires and thought I would put a short list out there tonite.
If you are interested in a specific feature, please email me and I will provide a link to how it was done as many of my mods have been documented here on FGRV.
The standard coach options:
Rooftop air, double sink with high rise faucet, wet bath (Toilet and shower in same room) with new sink and high rise faucet and brand new massaging shower head (never used), also new roof vent within the last year, 3 way fridge
, 3 burner stove top with hood and exhaust fan, Suburban furnace
(Recently Professionally overhauled…new board and sail switch, cleaned in and out.. works great!) 2 20 lb propane
tanks with auto changeover, new group 29 battery
(8 months old), Fantastic Fan/Vent with thermostat, 6 gallon water heater. City water and sewer hook up + 20 gallon fresh tank w/pump, 20 gallon gray tank and 8 gallon black tank. I put new valves on dump lines 4 years ago. Winegard Sensar TV antenna and brand new power supply. (Sorry, you must supply your own TV!) Full length awning
with new springs installed 8 mos. ago. Canvas is a little dirty, but in mechanically excellent order. The rails need to be “massaged” into the slots but they work just fine. Screen door and one step with cover.
All appliances are in excellent working order. Toilet, however, has a leaky ball valve and I have put in a shut off valve on the feed line. I turn it on to flush then shut off.
Not so standard coach options:
I-Wave mini microwave
on counter extension, new birch subfloor covered with Novalis plank wood style vinyl flooring. Digital thermostat for furnace
(Hunter Brand.. very accurate and nice) 15 watt Amorphous rock guard mounted solar panel
with 7 amp controller. (Panel swings in and stows behind rock guard. No lifting! No toting! Yay!) Almost ALL the lighting
has been replaced by Autolumination regulated 24 LED dome fixtures. They draw .38 amps each) Also added are 2 sets of cold cathode fluorescents, 1 set in kitchen one in living area. The unit is set up for boon docking, but it still has 30 amp AC capabilities, with all functional electrical
outlets and numark converter. It’s as at home in the woods as it is with full hook ups. There are also 2 12v lighter socket 12v outlets. The cabinets have been faced in Red Cedar.
comes with a single bar weight
distribution hitch, drawbar and friction sway bar. These were added 4 years ago at a cost of $400. Easy to use, even whimpy me can work it. The tires
have been upgraded to 14” load range D radial stt, with fancy schmancy chrome wheels, full moons. The wheels cost $450. 7 way bargman pigtail with charge and brake lines. Electric brakes
, 4 years old, work great!
I am the second owner and a Non smoker. It has seen pets, however, I have spent two days removing any inkling of allergen, and I have had the like new cushions covered since the day I bought it. I think I did a good job, but I know that is impossible to get it all, even tho it is visibly spotless. This may not be the ideal unit for severe allergy sufferers.
Not so stock stuff:
The unit has been set up for a single person to live in. It can be converted back to stock with very little effort and no damage. The dinette upfront is the bed, and the back is a living room. There is NO large dinette table. A Spiderleggs collapsible table will be included in the sale. The front can be converted back to a small dinette with the addition of a pole and posts. The table top is there. The back would need to have a new table made or a platform made to make the queen sized bed up. There is a nice wood storage box mounted to the rear bench that can be retained and the bed would be a double.
The outside needs a good wash! I am negligent on those things. There is one window with missing screen material (Frame for screen is fine) and one rear window with a small hole in the screen.
The unit has character marks as one would expect for a used unit, little nicks and things in the gel coat, inside and out, nothing major or in large qtys, but I will do my best to fill the inside ones with white caulk before sale. There is also one large hole where a TV was mounted that is now covered up with an antique grain scoop. Use as a magazine rack! It is not perfect, but I would rate it is “Awfully goshed darned really good and well done”
For those of you that have followed my mods and additions here on FGRV, be aware that the selling price of the unit does NOT include the Wave 6 heater or my portable solar
panels and controller, nor does it include the flat screen TV. It DOES include the speakers and the infrastructure for the Wave heater mod will be *Safely* left in place for you to add your own. All you need is to hang the heater (I’ll even leave the hardware) and make 1 gas connection that is right there.
I am not much for price dickering, so the $5250 price is firm as it is the lowest I will go. (I don’t like the game, sorry) Please feel free to offer me more tho :-P
