I just bought a 16' for under $1500 at a government sealed bid sale in ND. It is a 1994 model Casita
. It needs some work but nothing major, mostly a good cleaning, a new air conditioner (not roof type) & a roof vent replacement. I will be picking it up tomorrow. If you want a good deal like that check the military bases in your state. Find the outdoor recreation "business". Most large military bases have campers and other stuff to rent to the military people. Now and then they will sell older ones and buy new ones. Casitas seem to be a popular brand to have for rent at the bases but not always. Now I will be selling my 1992 13' Patriot. It doesn't have a bath/shower either.
