Hi, everybody! I've been "lurking" here and other forums for a year or so, just to educate myself about Casitas and other FG trailers.  I loved what I saw, tried a few rentals, and finally pulled the trigger in December.  I'm the proud owner of a gently used 2017 Independence Deluxe, and I'm having fun learning about it and doing some short local camping.  As the weather warms and dries, I have a growing list of places to go and people to visit! I'll be the bald guy in a "Margaritaville" hat trying to figure out my awning setup...feel free to stop by and offer advice, I'll need it.


See you on the road!

Welcome to the interesting world of Casita life! We are on our second 17’ Spirit Deluxe (motorhome in between), and like you, “we’ve all come to look for America” (quoth Simon and Garfunkel). And still trying to figure out how to reorient our picture so that we aren’t always horizontal.

Welcome to this Casita clan!  Lots of great times are  potentially  available to you with your  new-to-you fiberglass magic carpet.   And as you plan ahead....don't hesitate to include mid-America and the east coast attractions.   


Hope to meet you somewhere down the road.

Welcome to the "Family".  You came to the right place for any help that you will ever need (and loads of great ideas to poach).

Welcome to the club and to Casita trailers....best out there in my opinion.  Lots of fun ahead...some great camping in your area....Eastern Sierra is fun place plus great fishing if you like.  Enjoy and safe travels.
