Owned several camp trailers in my lifetime, now I want to try something a little bit different. I'm now looking for a SD 17'. Called the factory and will either order a new one or I really wouldnt mind finding a gently used Casita a few years old or less. My wife and I are close to retirement and would enjoy meeting other Casita folks. I also enjoy my 1930 Model A Ford Tudor. [attachment=45169:image.jpeg

Welcome to the club

 

It looks like "used" is something you are comfortable with having (-: 

 

Tell us about the lovely automobile


Happy Trails!

Sgmhgg......

 

     Welcome to the Casita clan!  Don't wait to retire before you secure and start using your Casita.  That's just depriving both of you of the pleasure of being out together on the road with one.....needlessly.  Start now, and when you pull the plug on employment you'll be fully accomplished and less hesitant to start out on l-o-n-g jaunts.   As you'll discover, your fiberglass magic carpet can provide a self-renewing bucket list.

 

   Hope to meet you somewhere down the road.

 

Frank :rolleyes:

Welcome to Casita land...that is a beautiful car.  Casita's are the best in my opinion.  Word to the wise...if you find a used one...gotta act fast...they don't stay on the market for long.  Whichever way you go...good luck and safe travels.

Don’t wait for retirement to pull the trigger on a Casita purchase. We bought brand new from the factory in 2013 and today I still have eight years before I can give the workforce the bird. Ha! But consider the years of camping and leisure that I got to enjoy out of my rig that others who wait don’t. Our Casita has brought us much joy to date and she is barely broken in yet! I read on LinkdIn today that security, old age, and wealth are life’s greatest illusions. Leap and the net will appear!

The Model A is a 1930 that I purchased on ebay. What a disaster is was, no one in our model A car club would have even thought about taking on the project. It had been sitting under an oak tree in Bryan College Station for 15 years. I purchased it in 2003 and it took me 7 years to get her where she is today. It was alot of fun restoring the car as I did most of the mechanical work and hired out the body work. Her name is Hilda and I Am very pround of the way she turned out.
