The Casita is an addictive trailer. The ex and I bought the first one in 2010. I loved it, he didn't. I got my 2nd Casita, Annie, (17ft 2000 FD turned into a SD) in March last year. Annie is a Hurricane Harvey rescue out of North Houston. Plan was to fix Annie up, and sell her. The problem came when my 91 year old Master Carpenter/WWII Navy vet Dad helped me make the cabinet doors... Anything Daddy works on is really special to me. After working on Annie, replacing everything made out of press board, building bench seats for the dinette, cleaning, painting, replacing everything in the nasty bathroom, and other mods, I can't sell her. My brother made that prediction in March last year when Dad and I made the doors...
I just bought my 3rd Casita, a 1997 FD 16ft. Another restoration project. Some things better than Annie, some things worse. But, I love working on them. A older Casita is like a canvas that has been used by another artist, and you end up with it. You can do anything you want! There are so many inspiring forums here, and so many people willing to help out, it is amazing.
My other trailer is a 2016, 25ft Airstream Flying Cloud. I love it, and when the time comes, I will find a great RV park with yearly sites, and it will be home And I will still be traveling in Annie!
