I drove up and checked out the Burro
today. Here is my report on the camper if anyone is interested. Overall, it is a decent trailer, there are a few issues that will need to be addressed by the new owners. Roof A/C leaks
from a bad seal, but the right side roof top has a big sag in it and may be part of the leaking problem, as there is water pooling there. There are a few spider cracks here and there, nothing bad, but there are 2 pretty good cracks that have been repaired with body filler and spray paint
. Some of the body filler has come out and the crack is exposed. The second repair will need some attention as well for the same reasons. The floor looked to be solid, but behind the left side wheel, there is some slight water damage from water slinging from the tire and would need to be sealed up. There is water between the fiberglass bottom and the wood in this location. The tires
are fair, although low on air and the spare tire is flat. the floor is covered in carpet and foam padding and looks to be fine. It does have potential and can definately be used as it is, but it just wasn't what I was looking for. The camper does have A/C, although the plastic shroud needs replaced due to some cracks and dry rot. He said it worked fine. There are 2 propane
tanks, but they are both the old style and cannot be refilled so it will need new tanks. The inside is pretty basic for a 17' wide body. No bath room, and no big closet, no furnace
and no 12 volt convertor. It just uses 12volt power from a battery
with no way to charge it.
My opinion on the camper is this: Pretty decent camper for someone to start out with. The roof is a concern due to the big sag in the right side and the roof leak that may or may not be from the A/C seal. I think that the sagging roof has alot to do with the roof leak through the A/C seal. The fiberglass damage is not anything major, but will need to be repaired to keep out water. With a little work and a few dollars, this may turn out to be a nice camper for you and your family. I looked it over pretty good, inside every cabinet, under and on top of the camper. I unfortunately didn't take any pictures, but it is the typical 1999 Burro 17 with no bath or big closet so you can google it to see the floor plan.
