We have a Uhaul 13 and a Casita SD 17. The Casita is way better in every way, but they do have a lot of tongue weight. The Casita 16 has less tongue weight because of the axle location. We tow with a 2012 Ram 1500.

Can you please elaborate a bit more on this? Not sure what you talking about.

Thanks!

For a larger person, a Scamp 16 has slightly more headroom than a Casita 17 and a wider aisle, and several inches more headroom than a Casita 16.

But I think for a lot of people, the extra 9" in the Casita 17 bed is the clincher.
Jon, the bigger bed, which we turned into a permanent one with the addition of an 8" memfoam mattress and the swivel captains chairs for the side dinette did it for us...since we came from a teardrop, the whole thing seems like the tajmahal to us...for goodness sake, INDOOR PLUMBING

Thanks!
Weiscraft makes molded fiberglass trailers in Colorado. Little Joe is one of their models. They're really small, but well-made.

Um... Isn't the Taj Mahal a tomb? Why on earth would it require indoor plumbing?

Hey Guys. So we are pretty close to buying the U-haul the neighbor is selling. I negotiated with him but he wont go lower than $5500. The camper is in a pretty good shape over all but by no means its in a great shape. The wood inside the door for the hinges is rotten and will need to be replaced. there was some previous damage in the front right corner that was fixed and it looks fine.

The fridge/ice box is missing but it all wired for a 3way and had a vent for it.

Do you guys thing its worth $5500?

Take yourself down the checklist and think about your skills in repair or willingness to pay someone else to do them.

Its more of just seeing what these things worth. Wiring has been redone with all new components, inverter, battery and LED lighting. Furnace works and there is a new thermostat. The only issue is the door is falling off. It has a new and a really nice ceiling fan.

floor is totally solid. Frame is solid as well. Windows are in a good shape. Stove needs to be painted but works.

Checked the floor very carefully and it looks good. No bad spots at all. The table is fine.

Has your neighbor listed this for sale or is he just stating a price because you asked him if he would consider selling it? If he's in no hurry to sell and you can go to a rally or 2, I would look there. Many times owners will sell their campers during these gatherings because they're wanting to buy a newer unit. Deals can be found this way!

He has not listed it yet. We want to get one sooner than later. We dont want to spend all summer shopping and not camping.
