New-to-us Burro!!!!

We finally found the right trailer for us: a 1998 14' Burro widebody. We are very excited about our new purchase and look forward to taking it out on a weekend camping trip in the near future.

What do you all do when you get a 'new', used trailer?

So far we are planning on the obvious, cleaning inside and out. Probably using something like 3M Restorer on the exterior.

Also I would like to do something about the dim tale lights. My Hubby drove the tow vehicle and I followed behind. I could barely tell when he was breaking due to how dim they were.

I am worried we are going to get rear-ended if we don't switch them to LED lights or something.

Any suggestions?

Clean the inside of the lens and replace the bulbs might and easy solution.

Good for you Tina. A wide-body 14' Burro is a bit unusual, so yes please... post pictures!

We love that the full size bed is 7.5 ft long. I am also excited that the front dinette will give me 'counter space' without having to put our bed up each morning.

Have fun with your new trailer.

I ended up changing out the whole taillight on my old scamp to LED taillights due to the too DIM issue and having more than one mad driver yell at me for not using my turn signal when I in fact had.

Here's a great solution to the dim tail light dilemma: 7" Round Led Red Tail/Turn/Stop Light

My hubby changed ours over to LED to increase the light. It helped a lot. They still are not what one would wish, but the issue is the age of the covers now, I think.
