Need help determining the year of our Burro

Hi, my fiancée and I just acquired a 13ft Burro, fixer. The couple that we got it from said they bought it in the 70’s but can’t remember exactly. Could someone help us determine the year of our new toy.
Thank you!

Do you not have it registered and licensed? What does the paperwork say?

Pictures sometimes help as small details can help narrow it down. A VIN or serial number may provide clues. Also, check to see it there is anything indicating place of manufacture. Early units (which would include yours if it indeed dates to the 70's) were made in Iowa and later units in California.

You can use the "Manufacturers" tab at the top to navigate to the Burro page and look through old threads for clues. Unfortunately it is not always possible to narrow it down to a specific year, as molded trailers don't tend to change much from one year to the next.

Like Glenn, I wondering about title or other paperwork to indicate date of manufacture? Some states don't title trailers like these, and even those that do can have incorrect information after so many years.

In Massachusetts all that is required is a bill of sale. Bought a camper there for our daughter and that's all I got for paperwork. So the seller could write anything.

Thanks for the tips. I’ll keep looking for some sort of tag as I clean her up. It was a very old couple, they had no title or paperwork. They just remember it was in the 70’s lol.

here's an old Burro ad for you. From a mid 80's magazine I think.

If the information on the Burro page is accurate, they were first produced in Iowa in 1978.
