After 12 fun years and many miles traveled with our Casita, we are leaving as we have upsized to a 21' Lance 1685.  The reason is the additonal comfort of a Queen bed with memory foam mattress and a sizeable slideout for lounging in the evening.

We have truly enjoyed our Casita years and are looking forward many more in our new Lance.

Hey!   You've paid your dues with those 12 years.   You're just extended family.

My parents were "snow birds" in Texas for many years. They started out with a 32' TT and when that got too big for my dad to handle, they "downsized" to a 26' with a slide-out. They really liked it because they were no longer living in a long hallway. I checked out the Lance 1685 on line as well, and she is  beaut! I am sure you will be happy and comfortable until you too have to hang up your traveling shoes. Congratulations on your new rig and for re-purposing your Spirit Deluxe to someone who will love it and enjoy it as much as you have over the years.

Went that route.  Had a 02 LD, for 10 years.  Nothing was wrong with it.  Went to a RV show and bought a Forest River Mini Lite, 22 feet and one slide.  Sold the LD

within a week.  Had the mini-lite 3 years.  Got rid of it and went back to a 2017 Casita LD.  We found out we had isolated ourselves from our Casita family, by staying in the big sticky box.  There was nothing wrong with it when we sold it, and when it left the driveway, I called Casita and ordered our new Casita.

Had our 2018 Casita Indy 17 for 6 months now..just got back from a long w'end at Montgomery Bell SP as always folks wanna look and check it out. We are satisfied so far [after 6000+ miles and ~52 nites camping] and alotta fun since picking her up in April at the factory..  Campgrd was full and we had the only fiberglass TT there, as usual.   we camped next to a ~22' "Earthbound" TT..they look nice but we googled it..they went OOB in 2013 w scads of tech issues and money problems.  For the money we are satisfied.

I looked at the Lance website and it used a term unfamiliar to me: "Dry bath". What does that mean?


These are the voyages of the small ship, "Grus Egg".

Our Eggs have a "wet" bath, which means the shower compartment gets wet. A "dry" bath means on the shower area, not the toilet area gets wet. Like a house bathroom

ahhh, that makes sense. Thank you.

 

Although I can tell you, despite my house bathroom being 'dry', after washing a dog in the tub, EVERYTHING is wet, including ME.
