Seems like you stuck with your dream that you started a couple years ago.
Reading the old post it looks like you got a used instead of new Casita. That's the way I do let some one else take that hit on the price drop just pulling it off the lot.
We are new to this also just got our 2010 FD a month ago and still haven't taken it out on it's maiden run yet But that was because there was some repair / maintenance items that I needed to take care of first and the last couple weeks have been to busy taking care of things on our acreage and some other commitments.
Neither of us could do the full time RVing I think 2 weeks would be about tops for us being away form our place.
There are lots of good folks and information on this site for you as you travel.
Take care, be Safe and enjoy your new life to the fullest.
