Tina, can you make these work? One Pair Submersible Trailer LED Lights

I think these are the same one's peterh bought and ran a bench test to see how long they lasted... gotta get good value! IF I remember right, these were 'keepers.'

Good luck!

Thumbs up

We replaced our tail and side lights with LED bulbs. They work GREAT! They have definitely exceeded our expectations. It was really worth the simple switch.

Thanks for all your help.

Some dual filament LED replacements for 1157 incandescent tail/brakelight are getting really lousy reviews to the effect that the level of perceived illumination is low in daylight. As that doesn't appear to be your experience, could you please tell me what bulbs you use?

I tired what I think where called Eurolite replacements for the taillights and they were not as good as I had hoped so replaced the whole fixture. Much happier with the outcome & actually not a whole lot more than the cost of replacement bulbs.

Sure, we got these for the taillights (be sure to get the 1157 dual intensity), and these for the side markers. I got red for the rear side markers and amber for the front ones. All of them are much brighter than the regular bulbs, but not those blindingly bright LEDs you sometimes see as brake lights. I am going to get these (15 LED ones) for the interior lights soon. I tried to order them with my original order, but accidentally got the wrong base. The ones in the link are the correct base.

I've made orders through Super Bright LEDs a few times now and have always been very happy with their product and fast shipping. I think we got our last order in two days. Hope this helps

Thanks Tina. Looking at the links; maybe I'll find some loose change and switch over to LED running lights.

Tina, I love your trailer. A Burro 14-Wide is my dream trailer
Also, thanks for the links to the LED lights. Just what I've been looking for.

Pam, let us know how these work if you buy them. I'm curious for my UHaul as well.

Pam, we are quite fond of our Burro as well. However, we didn't know it until we saw the trailer and ultimately purchased it. We looked at a 13' 80s Burro, and then the 14' Widebody. It is unbelievable how much bigger the extra foot in length and width and few extra inches of head room can do for a small trailer. We feel blessed to have found this particular trailer that we were not looking for!

I hope the lights work out for you.

Glad you found one. I have been looking since 2 years ago.
Want a wide body. not the 13footer but the 14 footer

Still have not found one.

If I may ask,
1. How much did you pay?
2. Does it have a shower?
3. Does it have a normal potty, ie not a porta potty?
I know my poo sticks so I do not want a porta potty.

The extra length and width make room for the shower and potty

I found 2 on the net but had been sold before I got to them
One was 3K the other 4.5k

Was told that buyer of the 3K one was a scammer who re sold it for 5k the next day. ie posted it for sale.

I see one for sale but seller is asking 10K, has now reduced it to 8.5K

enjoy

the wide body 14 footers are few and far between. We looked at a 13 foot 80s Burro before coming across this one that we purchased. The added space makes it like an entirely different trailer!

I have not seen one with a shower/potty. The only place I would see being able to have a shower/potty would be in place of the front dinette.

Good luck. I'm sure in the spring they will start popping up again.
