We just recently bought a 2014 Liberty deluxe. We just attended a Casita gathering at Lake Belton. We had a great time and every Casita owner we meet were awesome! We are looking forward to many more. My wife Barbara and I want to thank everyone there for making us feel so very welcome !image.jpeg image.jpeg

Hey, Jimmy, Welcome! I'm a Jimmy, too!. I see you have a Toyota. We are considering a Tacoma as our tow vehicle for our 17' LD. ANY COMMENTS APPRECIATED.

How can we find out about any Casita planned gatherings near the West coast? We are 100 miles north of SF.

My Toyotas are like my Casita ,they just work. They are very dependable and hold their value. The Tacoma will be the last truck I will ever buy. It does everything I want it to do. It's not too big and not too small. It's a 2018 off-road TRD 4x4 long bed

Blacksmith.......

 

Based on experience, I'll 2nd the Toyota comments, though I currently have a (totally satisfactory) alternate brand TV.

Well, thanks for all the great advise. I went to town to buy a Tacoma. Unfortunately my artificial knee replacements were not compatible with the allowable seat positions (very restrictive). I bought a Chevy Colorado, 308HP V6. Just back from over 2000 mile Casita trip. Mostly got 17 MPG. STEEP/SLOW hills cut that to 14 MPG. My first Chevy since 1979. Also, will look into some FG rallies. Thanks for the reference. BTW, the General Sherman tree (35' dia) in Sequoia National Forest is well worth the trip. We found it nice camping at Corp of Engineer operated lake sites, then day tripping to the 7,000+ foot level in the ice and snow of April. Traffic is light because the high camp grounds don't open til May or June but much of the parks is open to drive in traffic. We worked our way from East of Bakersfield, Ca. to nearly Stockton, always staying at a COE dam/lake. Very nice camping, showers/dump sites, some electric/water hook ups, but not at every site. Best regards.
