With a dry weight
just under 1500 lb and 125 lb tongue, you can take this little camper on the road with almost any small SUV. Plus, it is light
enough to move round your driveway by hand on the included jack wheel, and fits in a single standard parking space.
Unlike some other fiberglass campers, Burros have both an exterior and interior fiberglass shell, separated by a layer of aluminum backed insulation, making them stronger, better insulated, and less prone to condensation than many other fiberglass designs. The curved gelcoat interior reflects the light
around and creates a very open, airy feeling, rather than the claustrophobic, stuffy feel that plagues many small campers. The fiberglass walls are easy to wipe down and clean after the weekend adventure.
Trailer has a flushable Sea Land marine toilet, though no official bathroom. The shower always leaked like a sieve so we just "bucket washed". New wood on interior components, nice solid core Oak plywood table, closet doors, and under seat storage covers. Custom curtains provide privacy. The skylight roof vent has been rebuilt with a 12vdc, 3 speed, reversible, thermostatic controlled 14 vent fan. Dometic fridge
has no freezer compartment, and is propane/electric, Kitchen sink has added hand pump in case electric pump fails. LED lights
have been installed to reduce electrical
load during off grid camping.
The Burro's cute retro styling turns heads and gets thumbs up wherever it goes. The door latch was rebuilt to be more secure than it was originally. Tires
are good having been kept off the trailer and stored inside for the last 5 yrs. Bearings and axle
are in great shape. Axle
was upgraded to a 3500 axle and raised 3 to allow for greater ground clearance, has electric brakes
. New caster wheel for tongue jack. Running lights
all work and are LED, trailer electrical
connector is a standard 7 connector plug.
Exterior gel coat has seen a lot of sun weathering and could use a paint
job, suggest a marine type epoxy paint
. Window and door seals are dry and stiff and need replaced. Windows
do leak and the seal replacement would be a first thing to look after. We've investigated replacing the whole windows
and have info on sources of supply.
This camper is a ton of fun, and we're sad to see it go, built for many more years of adventure, and we know whoever buys it will love it as much as we have!
