Thank to the input I got on my "tall people in tiny trailers" thread I recently snagged a 1986 17' wide body Burro
that I've named Elroy. I'm not sure of the proper protocol here on the forums, but I was thinking I'd confine the bulk of my posts about my updates to this thread, and just update the title
as I come up with new questions.
To start, here are a few photos. The trailer is in very nice shape inside (once it got a deep cleaning). The cushion covers gross me out so they are my first project! I've already got a good start on the new covers. There might be a few minor structural issues (the gentleman I bought it from purchased it with a salvage title
, so it's been in an accident at some point) that I'll need to deal with down the road. Right now we aren't 100% sure we're going to keep it (my husband is tall and isn't quite sold
on a tiny trailer) so I'm starting out with some cosmetic upgrades to make it comfortable for a couple of trial trips. If we decide to keep it I'll dive in a little deeper to structural upgrades.
