Ann, that is one amazing workshop! I have serious envy. You could fit my Burro in there (and Donna's Scamp
too) and still have room!
Thanks for the welcome everyone! Lil, I read about the couple of summer MN rallies and I think we might try to do the one in September. It would be fun to see some other egg trailers in action and meet folks.
Yesterday's weather was quite mild so I took the opportunity to get out in the Burro and fishing deconstructing the interior. I also got a better floor inspection and confirmed a couple of concern areas are indeed concerning. Specifically I can see the door area has been patched before, which I had a clue on but couldn't fully confirm before I ripped out the carpeting. At a minimum it definitely needs to be cut out and redone - it's not pretty. I'll put a thread for the rehab up at some point soon and post photos, so I'll leave the gory details for later.
I'm so glad I started reading FiberglassRV. When my husband bought this Burro three years ago he said he wanted an egg because they were indestructible. He's the handy one and his whole rehab focus has been on the interior work, which felt more like a nice to have until this point. I kind of went with the assumption for a couple of years, until I learned from the forum that Burro's plywood floors can be a problem if they aren't sealed up and I started poking around the camper...and lo and behold there is a tiny pea-sized gap exposing a bit of plywood that didn't look exactly solid. That was my one clue to this larger issue I'm seeing now.
So, as for my garage issue -- I would love to rent a place, but haven't looked at storage units because I figured they wouldn't want me to be painting
and actually working on a vehicle. There hasn't been a lot of CL to rent, but yesterday I found a couple of options to call on. However, after yesterday's exploration I think I need something for more than a 1-2 month rental I was thinking about, or I need to find a fiberglass
repair specialist and hire the exterior work out. If garage rental would cost x% of hiring it out and it starts adding up...yeah, as much as I'd like to learn and do the project we still have the interior to complete and a toddler and jobs. So....anyone have any brilliant ideas on finding a fiberglass
RV repair specialist in the Twin Cities vicinity? I have found several fiberglass
boat repair places that probably might work, but it would be nice to find someone with egg experience.
