Help with 1982 Burro Reno

Hello!

I purchased a 1982 Burro almost a year ago. I love her and named her Gidget. Unfortunately what she needs to be finished is beyond my scope and expertise. She's gutted. I've been relying on my father to help but 8 months into it, he's just too busy with his life to help me and I'm dying to get her out and enjoy our upcoming Spring!



Right now, she needs her electrical and plumbing rewired.

I have a Fantastic Fan I'd like to replace the original vent with.

She needs to have the aluminum or steel redone underneath the battery and propane tank.

I'd like to have all her original lights replaced.

She also had an a/c unit in her side window which I've taken out and after a few mistakes, finally committed to a custom window fitting. That should be finished in the next week or so.

I'd need to get her bearings checked out too.



Anything cosmetic, I love doing but the above items, I sadly don't have the skills to do.



I'm located in Channel Islands, CA. Between Malibu and Santa Barbara. If anyone is within a couple hundred miles and willing to help a girl out, I'd be so appreciative! I would compensate you for your time, hopefully at a reasonable rate.



Thanks so much!



-Crystal

Hello Crystal, welcome to the world of fiberglass eggs that you can sleep in. I wish I could help you out but I can't due to my health. But if you get a free minute check out my web page on my Burro restore. You can find it here: Restoring a 1981 Burro Fiberglass Travel Trailer . And I'll bet you that you live closer to Oxnard than you do to Malibu or Santa Barbara.

Wow Gage! I really enjoyed your photos! Your vision is very similar to what I would like to do, job well done! I love the idea of the birch ceiling! Did they remove the foam underneath the original fabric? It looks very clean and sleek. I was invisioning a vinyl piece from my upholsterer but that is gorgeous. I also love the back splash and the added storage cabinets in the dinette area, so smart! The diamond plate is exactly what I need as well. I already have my custom awning from Marti, I didn't get the sides though, do you find that you use them? I noticed you have a Scottie in your pictures, love it! Thank you!
