Congrats - looks to be in good condition. When I picked my '82 up, it was absolutely disgusting inside - wet dog smell, mildew, leaking windows
etc. I did a complete restoration:
Tore out everything and installed bamboo cloth headliner over reflectix, and sheet cork on the walls behind the cushions; New axle
including spare; new wiring, 12V & 120V outlets, 30A Intellivolt converter/charger, and new detachable power cord; new LED taillights and marker lights
; new propane
lines and new stove; new water system and water pump (found the exact replacement water tank too!); new stainless sink and high-rise faucet; new custom glass slider windows
all around; new vent/fan; new door hinges and a stainless deadbolt; new custom fit high-density foam cushions (reversible with a different, compatible fabric on the back for a varied decor if desired) because I didn't want to sleep on 30+ years of old farts and dog pee; new custom countertop and tables with formica to complement cushion fabric, edged in aluminum; matching fold-up counter extension; all LED lighting
, including in all overhead cabinets and pantry; Cork flooring; lined all under-seat storage cubbies with reflextix (no exposed fiberglass to snag stowage); new deep cell marine battery
; new propane
tank; new jack stand; new safety chains; addded front stabilizer jacks; new 7-pin connector; new shelving in pantry; Ikea kitchen accessory rail system (holds utensils, spices, etc).
It was a great project that took about 4 months for the bulk of it, with ongoing omprovements as we used it and discovered needs. We love our Burro
. We get nothing but compliments everywhere we go...the Burro is definitely the 'cutest' FG trailer ever made.
You'll love towing it - you won't even notice it's there. Towing it home you've probably noticed that short trailers can be difficult to back up - but you'll get to be an expert after 3 or 4 years!
We'll be selling ours soon, unfortunately...we will be upgrading to a slightly larger trailer with a bathroom and larger 3-way fridge
, as we'll be taking longer trips when we retire soon. We'll sure miss it though -congrats again! If I can advise let me know - there's lots of good info on this site and folks are very helpful.
