i researched and attended every RV show in the Dallas/Ft Worth area for years, kept coming back to casita. took the plunge the first of this year, in preparation for retiring in march from a 40 year RN career. took into consideration my "long in the tooth" tow vehicle, my minimalist tendency, the fact i've never towed anything before, and got lucky. found and brought home my "sassie cassie" feb 1 and can't tell you how much fun i've had and plan to have even more in 2015.
so far i've only been out the maximum of 2 weeks, but have squeezed in a trip every single month and 5 rallies this year, as well as camping with casita friends for 10 days on 2 different texas lakes. my plan was to take 2014 to get to know my casita, meet my new casita family, make some really good friends and see the many cool modifications everyone has done, as well as slowly doing the mods and buying the things that make my camping experience better for me.
plans for 2015 are to take more extensive trips caravaning with several solos i've met who also enjoy travelling together and are comfortable with every camping situation, including boondocking.
i highly recommend the casita, but whether it's too small for you, no one can say, that's strictly up to you. try to attend a rally or two, see all the layouts, that may help you make your decision. believe us all when we tell you, casita holds it's value. if you decide on something else, you'll have absolutely no trouble selling yours. best of luck and keep planning for that retirement. you'll make it! claire
