We bought a used 2006 Casita Patriot Deluxe this summer - much sooner than we had anticipated. We knew we had to act quickly and purchased it before we even had our tow vehicle in possession. Thank goodness for a good friend who came with us to inspect it a final time and tow it to its new home.
We are slowly getting it ready for use in our "free time" and familiarizing ourselves with the trailer as it's our first. We just bought new tires and had them balanced and installed. We need to get some other things fixed (or figured out) before taking it out (e.g., why the solar isn't charging the battery, tank seal issues, and so on). We plan to spend our time dry camping/boondocking and not use hookups. We are used to tent camping in remote areas on BLM land and national forests, so the Casita will be luxurious. Also, feeling comfortable backing up the tiny trailer is going to take some practice and time, but we knew this before we bought it.
Looking forward to learning from the expertise on this forum!
