Jumping the Fiberglass Ship

After much debate I am leaving the
fiberglass world and am going back
to the boring style of a stick built RV.
I have enjoyed my Burro for many
years now and have benefited from
many of you on here ( especially Flyod ).
I'm happy with my decision and look
forward to many more creature
comforts! Thanks to all and maybe
we will meet again down the road.
Safe travels!

Cheers,
Burro Bill

No need to apologize. Do what works for you.

It's not like you earn points by dragging an egg around.

Life has seasons, and seasons change. It's all good. Sometimes they even come back around.

Happy travels!

Some things just aren't available in a molded FG trailers. Situations change, molded FG is not always the answer.

We had a stick built (OK, all aluminum frame) fifth wheel for many years and it served us well.

You have to go with what floats your boat. There is such a thing as the "wrong" camper but is only if the camper is wrong for your needs. Hopefully you Burro will find a good home.

FG comes in may configurations, not all of them molded, and with more room and amenities.

So will be you known as "Stickie Bill" now... somehow thats sounds questionable.

What is is that made you jump ship? If it's size, I'm not suprised if you have a 13.

As long as you don't call yourself SOB Bill (for Some Other Brand). Keep on camping, however you can!

Hi Bill,
Do you have a buyer for your Burro?

Burro

DustBunny I sold her last week!
Hated to see her go but I think
the new owner will enjoy her as
much as I did. It like so many
Burros needed a new floor.
It was sold with FULL disclosure.
The new owner more than has the
skills to accomplish the task.
I wish him well.

Bill, no need to run off, I'm sure everyone would like to see what you transition too. Stick around.
