Trailer: 1989 16 ft Casita Freedom Deluxe
Posts: 93

I am trying to buy a used Casita Freedom trailer. When I search in Ebay, (I also check Casita Club Classifed and here) I can never get any fiberglass trailers to show up under 16' and 16-24'. This happens even if there are Scamps or Casita trailers. Are they listed under something besides RV trailers- travel trailers - Scamp or Casita?

I search for "Burro trailer" only because that was the first kind of trailer I bought on ebay. We later bought our UHaul on ebay. A listing of like kinds of fiberglass trailers is listed as related links, so it includes Trillium, Casita, Scamp, and Boler. I assume that you can begin by searching "Casita trailer"

Maybe you are being too specific in what you want.

It's been a while since I spent a lot of time viewing the eBay listings, but I seem to remember that using the "16' and under" filter and the 16'-24' filter only work for trailers that have the length mentioned in the TITLE of the eBay listing. Those filters miss the trailers that only mention the length in the body of the ad...

Sharon, have you read The Official "Search Tips" Thread? Might give you some other ideas as well.

Go to the ebay Motors buy page and click on RVs and Campers. When the auction page comes up set ONLY your footage preference then wade through everything. There will be motorhomes and slide in PU campers as well as travel trailers.
I have found travel trailers this way that did not show up when I searched just for travel trailers.
There is a Casita listed that is in S. Cal. ebay # 110227134022.

Good luck in your search,
John

You can also group types by doing the following in the search:

(Casita, Cloud, Compact, Companion, Eagle, Eco, Escape) rv
or
(Scamp, Casita, Burro, Boler, Trillium) trailer

That will also get you some odd selections,but I get emails when there are hits on what I like watching.

There is a keyword search at the very bottom of the side bar which allows you to select the size.

There is an ad up now that illustrates this Casita in wildomar

The size is not in the title, but by putting the word "casita" in the keyword box, it shows up.

It does show up in the long list as well, but this saves a TON of weeding.

This is not the way it searches. It searches for the length in the info box in the ad which lists various specs

The ad above is a perfect example of this. It doesn't mention the length in either title or ad text. Only in the Ebay supplied spec box you fill out when placing your ad.

Got your email, Lisa. I couldn't find how to reply except (maybe) adding on to your message. Anyway, thanks for the tip. I have already reported 2 Scamp sellers to ebay for asking for user ID's, and they were both removed. I really want a Casita Freedom Deluxe with the captain's chairs within 500 miles of TX. So far, no luck finding one at a reasonable price.

Sharon,
Patience....is the key. It took me over 3 years to find my 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe 15 footer with 6'3" head room. Just keep checking every couple days on Ebay. I found 2 more Trillium's last year and owned 3 for a short period of time. I fixed up both and sold both on Ebay last year. Check your local "Craig's List" too. Good luck
It's worth the wait.

Be very careful on ebay as there have been quite a few scams on there but there are also alot of nice people too.
A giveaway for a scam might have in the listing "Do Not contact me thru ebays seller link as i never check that ..... instead contact me at this email address" pay for the whole thing in person if possible.
Joe

I know this link is not a freedom casita but it looks to be legit:

I have seen that ad. There are lots of Libertys and Spirts I could buy. And, I try looking at all the other FG brands. Everything also resales better than the Freedom because of the extra beds. But, there are only two of us, and those chairs are so much more comfy. My heart is set on the 17' Casita Freedom. There are very few of them.
