New Rv'er From Va
Posted 21 June 2013 - 12:21 PM
I think I like everything about a Casita. Not having used a RV, I can only like with I can read and see.
Please help me make the right decision on the Casita product.
I may start out with a late model and trade up. What do you think of starting out old/small and moving up?

If you can find a used one, that would be a great place to start. However, I have seen the price of Casita Travel Trailers climb very high. The fact that well priced, used trailers normally sell within minutes of being posted tells you that it is not a buyer's market right now. I run across many folks who decided to purchase new because the price difference between a late model used trailer and a new one was not that far apart.
I hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply
If you still have it in a few weeks I would like to stop in and look at her. I do think the way to start is with a used one.
I travel Va on business and will bein tidewater after the 4 th.
Will that work for you?

Like you, I'm retiring soon. (Very soon. ) I'm not new to camping... Did tent camping, 2 popups, and now since April, my 04 SD. You will be happy with either new or used. Don't be afraid to by used. As Hazel stated Casitas are well built and last, last last. You are well placed for getting lots of good use from a Casita. Virginia has some really great state parks and campgrounds. I have been to Grayson Highlands and Staunton River. I think someone was trying to organize an egg rally in Va for sometime this fall. BTW, I'm in NC. Good luck in retirement. Tom

I know Charlotte well. My daughter lives in Charlotte.
The more I think about the Casitas, the more I recognize that the quality is there and a used one is the way to go.
Any special features that you think are a must for a first timer?

It may turn out that we may not use the camper as much as we thought.
I just don't know.
Back to work tomorrow:-(

May I make a couple of suggestions. Your last sentence prompted my response. I would suggest you go to lovemycasita.com and buy a copy of Eileen's CD. It is 255 pages of information about each of the models and all of their systems. Then, you will know. Secondly, I'd take up Hazel's offer to come see her Casita. Wherever it is in relation to your location it is a darn bit closer than Rice, TX. The systems are the same so you would be adding to your knowledge base. You can also sit in the trailer and give it the sit test. Then you will be able to decide for yourself how you would or would not use the various options you see. Who knows you might like it. But, in any case you will have met one of those illusive Casita owners "down the road"! Sandy

I saw the CD. And a good suggestion that is. My process is to go to Williamsburg and see if Hazels Sprit DL is what i want. After talking with her I know i will have a better idea about what I want. Thanks
question, The CD covers all old units as well as the 2013?
