Burro company

In the early 90's burro was sold to company called fiberglass international in Schaller iowa and was there until owner died. I have all of that company and parts and molds for sale of what's left. I am liquidating all of it as I sold the property a few weeks ago. Thanks

Any mysterious molds left in Mexico? We've been chatting and wondering about them, (if they exist) for years here.

Does anyone have an owner's manual for a burro?
Great post, BTW!

Linda, I had the graphics dept. at work cut me a jackass for the front window guard and spare cover. Replaced B U R R O over left side jackass with vinyl letters from a self design vinyl cutting service on internet. If Brian has the decals for sale in less than a wholesale lot, jump on it! Even if it is a large lot. You could be the logo Lady.

I contacted VistaPrint and they are going to make me a Burro decal based on an image I found on a google image search. They sell signs, decals, and bumper stickers on-line. I am restoring my 1983 Burro and thought I'd add some Burro decals to freshen her up. I'll post pictures later.

John if you have not found it yet we do have a Documents Center here - the link to it is on the forums main page on the left. You will find manuals for most items found in our trailers as well as in many cases the trailers original owners manual.

Our Burro is an 83 and we bought it from the original owner. He had the original manual which I think was uploaded to the document page. I was impressed because the whole manual was hand done! All the drawings were by hand and all the writing was by hand. I've never seen anything like it in the way of a manual. We always wondered by the seam was vertical instead of horizontal like Bolers and Scamps. Someone may have mentioned the U-Haul CT-13 which, as I understand it, was an identical knock off of the Burro. All the competition may have created a very difficult business plan.

Brian, in your 'semi loads of parts', are there any actual trailer shells (inner and/or outer hulls)? If so, I can envision the possibility that some DIY types might want to buy a shell or two and build out a trailer for themselves.

Perhaps you might post a rough list of some of the components you have on hand, too. For example, frames? Axles? Cooktops? Furnaces? Some folks might need something to fix their older Burros.

BURRO TRAILER History ???

ROGER & GINA & others interested ---

I purchased a 13' BURRO a couple years ago here in SO CAL and it was California Titled as a 1965 --- I have looked for a Manufactures Data Plate on /in the body and the Frame and have not found one ---
The TITLE shows a "Vehicle I.D.Number" as 57283 --
It is complete and unmodified except for a new Floor and Carpet & new Cabnet Doors and new Cushions and Dinet Table ---


In the "thread" it is mentioned that BURRO started making Trailers in 1970 -- I can not disprove this except for the fact that my Cal Title says mine is a 1965 ---

If yours is the ONLY known trailer with a date of 1965 and there are no others pre-dating 1970 then the date on your title is pretty suspect of being a clerical error on the part of the person who filled out the information.

I have heard rumors that some investors may revive the company. Just rumors. I have no real evidence of this.
What is the URL for this website??

It finally, finally died about 6-7 years ago which was more than 10 years after the last Burro was built.
