Hello- I haven't purchased a CASITA yet, and just today requested a catalog. After reading the many positive things you all have to say, I would really like to see one.
I am most interested in the 16/17 foot models. Also, I have a 2001 Toy Tacoma V-6 (manual tranny)- will that be sufficient to tow the Casita?
I am looking into travelling all over the states and into Alaska. Is the Casita insulated enough to stay warm in Alaska winters? and cool enough for Arizona summers?
Thank you and I look forward hearing back from you.
Laura

Check your tacoma manual for tow capacity. With 3500 lbs capacity, you'd be fine with a 17' Casita. (Which is the same capacity as my Toyota Highlander -- makes it towing up mountains just fine.) Call casita for a referral to a nearby owner. If you're in NW Oregon or SW Washington, write me directly using the available link. I'd be glad to have you visit.

The propane furnace is plenty warm. I have no experience with my a/c -- haven't needed it yet. If you look at posts on this forum, the vast majority of owners are in the sun belt. (Makes sense, since 75% of owners pick u p their trailer at the factory in Rice TX.) I've never heard a complaint about a/c. You can't use it if you're dry camping, unless you have a generator.

good luck with your decision making!

Hi Actually I would travel anywhere within 100 miles of San Francisco to see a Casita- unfortunately you are just a little too far for now.
I am looking forward to learning more about the Casita and find this message board very informative.
Also, for those travelling w/ your Casitas I'm not too far away from Interstate 80, Interstate 5 and Highway 99. I'll be keeping my eye out.
Also,what's the difference essentially between a Casita and a Burro.
Thanks again.

We live in San Francisco with our 2003 17' LD and would be glad to show it to you. However, we are in Connecticut right now, two months into our 3 month 13000+ mile cross country trip. Will return home sometime in November. So, if you don't get to see one before then, contact me in November for a demo.

Hi

I have a 2002 SD Casita. I live in a Sacramento suburb (Carmichael) and would be happy to show. You should be able, however, to get a closer visit I think. Casita has an owner referral program and I know there are owners in the Bay Area. I would try that first to save travel time, but you are more than welcome to see mine.

Good luck

Thank you- the Casita Referral Program had someone in my town that I was able to go look at their Casita. The Casita is really well built and could easily be towed by my truck. Seeing that gave me a lot to think about. Thanks again.

Hi I am looking for a used Casita. I have a friend in Carmichael & I am often in the area. I would love to see your Casita sometime if it isn't an inconvenience. Thanks Cathy
