All,

I'm getting ready to take my first big trip of 3k miles for a month and am newbie. I'm not sure if there are any issues with my trailer and could use help diagnosing if there are repairs needed (e.g., are my tires good, do you grease axles, any water leaks, refrigerator in good working order, etc.).

Do any of you know someone in the Austin, TX area that you might recommend to assess and fix any issues?

Thanks so much!

Check out Little House Customs @ littlehousecustoms.com. It might be worth contacting Larry and see what he might recommend. He's on this site and his shop is about 3-4 hrs northeast of you. His phone # and email address is on the site.

Be safe.

You might take it to Camper Clinic, IH 35 S @ Buda. http://www.camperclinic2.com/. I have friends who use them for their RV work. I never have personally.

Any good RV service facility should be able to check the tires and the tire pressure and repack the bearings. Its not rocket science and the Casita uses standard (for the most part) off the shelf items any other camping trailer would have installed.
