My Husband and I just sold our tent trailer and are anxiously awaiting spring 2018 when we will get to pick up our new 17' Spirit Deluxe. Until then, it's back to old fashioned tent camping.  We, along with our dog, like to camp, hike, paddleboard, skydive, slackline, float rivers...  While the wait is killing us, we are having fun looking at potential mods and searching for other Casitas on our travels.

Hi Barb


It is unusual that nobody has responded with a greeting.  Don't know what area of Utah you live but we live in SLC.  There are some folks in this area with Casitas that get together sometime.


Anyway, WELCOME.

 Welcome to the Casita family!  Having had the opportunity to share many of the National Parks in your state this past July, I encourage you to use a bit of your "wait" time to plan some eastern U.S. trips as well!   Our little magic carpets also work nationwide!

Welcome! I love your avatar if Barb Dwyer is your real name and not an alias. Super clever if it is.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Casita. They are worth the wait. The good news is that spring is the best time to be in North Texas. If you time it right you will get to experience our spectacular wildflower blooms, so please plan to spend some time in our state and COE parks. Waxahachie Creek (COE) is very close to the Mother Ship in Rice. As for state parks, I recommend Lake Whitney, Fairfield and Mission Tejas. Our state flower, the Bluebonnet, blankets Lake Whitney SP around Easter but they don't last long. The heartier wildflowers are more colorful and will blanket the ditches along the interstates and highways all summer long.

My other piece of advice is to camp in your trailer until you figure out how you camp before investing in a bunch of upgrades. Some are really good, but with time, you will probably realize you won't need most of them. If you like to tinker, there are several member/vendors on this site that sell products and kits that make many modifications pretty idiot proof to tackle yourself. There is also YouTube that has DIY videos and reviews on virtually every topic.
