Hello I am new to this forum and have been given the opportunity to purchase a 1980s burro
for $2500 from a family member. I have been browsing around and see the countless issues that could come along with this purchase but my wife and I love the idea of having a small camper like this vs only taking our tent out. We have an 8 month old and this would be more convenient than the tent.
I know they purchased the Burro
for more money $4,000 but over the years had 2 kids and it is now too small for them so they want it to have a good home. Upon initial inspection it is as expected for a 1980s burro
kind of dirty, some leaking windows
, some floor rot. It doesnt stink, the lights
work, the door closes, it has all the cabinets the stove, new cushions.
I am guessing we would need to gut it to check everything redo the windows
, redo the floor, check the frame, get some tires
. For the price it seems reasonable but I am hoping reading other stories on here we do not end up with a nightmare on our hands. Anyway, I am hoping to learn and make a good decision on whether this is the one or if we should just spend the $15k + on a newer one.
