The 1998-2000 vintage Burros were in fact fabricated in Tijuana, and assembled in Escondido, CA.
The early CA Burros were of satisfactory quality. Toward the end of production, the quality both of the molded fiberglass and the assembly left a great deal to be desired.
In the mid 2000's I investigated ressurecting Burro
here in Iowa and abandoned the idea. Someone found out I had done that research and contacted me and the EggCamper
was the result of that production run. As you know he's now ceased manufacturing, and has apparently sold
the molds and operation to another company. The Burro
design was built first as the Cloud
in the early '70s in St. Cloud
Minnesota. By the late '70s Burro
had begun production in Plymouth MN. Then it showed up in Sac City Iowa from '78-'90... and then it re-appeared in Escondido, Ca in 1998.
I don't see any great benefit to moving production away from a single facility production and sales, or having them built and assembled in Mexico and then having to import them to sell through a dealer network. There just isn't that much mark-up in them nor a large enough markte to make that a viable marketing model.
