1982 Vintage Burro Travel Trailer 13’ $12,000.
Location: Culver City, CA 90232
With heavy hearts we are selling our beloved Burro in order to make room for backyard construction. This cozy camper has provided our family with invaluable memories, but then we do need to put a price on it, asking $12,000. or best offer.
The overall fiberglass shell, interior and chassis are clean and in good shape. She is ready to roll to the campsite right now or a great upgrade project.
Listed 13’ as this seems to be a standard classification for this size Burro camper, but the actual length, hitch to spare tire is 15 feet long, 6 feet wide, the shell itself is 10 feet long.
As you can see from the pictures little has been done to alter the original appearance, just minor alterations such as new cabinet hinges and metal knobs.
Two burner range works well as does the sink hand pump pulling water from an under-the-bench plastic tank.
Most of the electrical has been replaced by a professional trailer contractor including a new six pin electrical harness.
120v hook-up with an interior light and plug socket.
12v (3) fixture interior lighting and USB access. We had this system on a solar powered trickle charge (now removed, not part of sale) powering a 100 amp-hour deep cycle sealed lead acid battery. The battery can remain for an additional $100., or removed.
All new cushions except for the long brown bench. These were custom made using high quality foam and durable Sunbrella fabric. They’re very nice.
Custom made curtains from vintage Barkcloth.
Original wood table top and chrome stand, which converts to a bed using the cushions.
Previous owner fabricated a wood frame that holds a window mounted air-conditioning unit, which is also included. With a 120v hook-up this chills down Mr. Burro quite nicely! If you don’t want this the frame can easily be removed from the front window without damage.
Velcro mounted front door bug screen, the kind that is split in the middle and held together with magnets.
Plenty of cabinet and shelf space.
"Fridge" is basically just an icebox with a drainage tube. We used it to store drygoods.
Industrial strength steel storage bin mounted to the chassis.
Robust wheeled tongue jack and rear leveling jacks.
Tires are seven years old but have very little wear as the campground we went to is only thirty miles away.
Custom made steel door step.
Removable child safety barrier for the long bench.
Plenty of positive vibes.
Some exterior spider cracks, but nothing penetrating the shell.
Rear, lower side red marker lights aren’t working, I have the replacements but just haven’t gotten around to installing. All other lights function.
After a heavy rain I have noticed a slight amount of moisture from the lower left of the rear window that could probably be fixed with a little sealer.
Though it remains attached, the original signature, “burro” ceiling carpeting is starting to come loose and needs to be reglued.
The camper tows well and can be moved into place by a single person, especially with the included trailer dolly.
