I got me a Burro


I've been lurking around the sites for awhile trying to find a good used 13' camper, and finally got lucky. A 1980 Burro in pretty decent condition went on the boards lone day last week about 4:00 in the a.m. and I was the first to respond. It was in Illinois and i am in Tennessee. After talking to the seller about 10:00 that night I decided to take a chance on it. I drove from Oak Ridge, TN to Chicago the next a.m. It was worth the trip, so I made the deal, hitched it up and headed south. From TN to IL and back was about 24 hours including a nap in my new-to-me Burro in lower KY. It handled great, but those Indiana Interstates are rough! I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up, redecorated, upgraded, but it is usable right now. I am pretty pumped about it. I am now trying to get educated on electric upgrades (chargers/inverters/low-voltage), flooring options, and gel-coat cleaning.

Looking forward to possible shake-down trips to Nashville this month and the Florida Panhandle next month. We'll see.

You're really lucky to have found one of that age that's in such good condition. You're going to have a lot of fun.
