Ah to be 19 again! No expert here but the 1993 YOM is the most recent Sac City found, isn't it? Rather amazing that we commonly find incorporation and business records dating to the early 19th C but can't get a handle on this little operation in late 20th C Iowa! Congratulations on finding such a nice example.
Hey Tom, where's the compromise? 5' of counter space in the galley; 2' between the sink and stove. Won't see that in a Casita
. But lots of folks don't cook inside so it wouldn't matter to them. Rear dinette convertible to 56"X84" bed. Two average size humans can tolerate a two dog nite; if you're taller you can really stretch out and enjoy a good nite's sleep. It occurs to me that also may not matter to those who don't expect to "sleep" inside either. Nominal 30"X30" table possible in the front dinette without doing the fat man's squeeze and very convenient to the galley. Probably a lot of owners of competing brands don't expect to eat inside let alone put down three place settings on a dinky side dinette.
Might be able to fault the Pullman-style overhead if you're 6'+ because these trailers are wide bodies not tall bodies. A side shower/stool enclosure kills an "open plan" in any 16-17' trailer and a Burro with one is no exception. Keeps the tongue weight
down a bit which is a plus but still a compromise or tradeoff. I don't know if you have one, Chris & TJ? If not, you can dance inside!
