Burro for sure... must have been one of the last ever made, looks like a California wide body... 17 or 19 'm guessing. Had Nevada plates.

I think you're right, a 19' wide body. Here's one of a 17' wide body and you can see their's less trailer forward of the access panels:

I had never heard of a Burro 19' (which doesn't mean anything - I'm no Burro expert) but the looks like the same length as the 17' example to me. The angle of view shows some of the front which make the body appear longer, but judging from the front marker light position (which should be and appears to be as far forward as possible while still being before the corner curve) they seem like the same length to me.

Anyway, interesting coincidence, given the rarity of both trailers!

Could be, Brian. The one in Myron's pic is showing some of it's front, which threw me off.

I had a Burro 14, it morphed into a Casita that with a little water and fertilizer turned into an Escape 19. Burro was ok but I can see why they went away. Very spartan inside and the vertical seam was very strange.
