HEY, did you read this? New 17' Casita model coming next week!!

On the CasitaClub, posted by Casita Travel Trailers: http://www.casitaclu...lx/#entry167541

I like the name... Independence!

Casita will be posting pictures of the new model on their website sometime next week. Cool beans for those that are interested in a twin bed model.

Interesting they are finally (apparently) doing what so many have modified their Liberty to do: twin beds that are actually wide enough to sleep on. Good for them!

I have to say, I don't look at the Casita Travel Trailer website very often. Have these twin bed pics been posted before?

Yep - that's why a lot of folks get the Liberty - queen, king or twin beds. Can't wait to see the Independence, altho' Dave's not a fan of twin beds I know a lot of folks like that option. Wonder what the upgraded bathroom/kitchen area will look like....

My vote is yes to Donna's question, that floorplan has been around for a number of years I think. No side dinette. Anyone one else have a vote?

Twin beds were a must for us. I am anxious to see the new model.

Pics are up but the no side dinette floorplan has been around for a while. Looks like the Benches are just wider. Are they also longer?

Front stove knobs are bad news if you have small kids.

I like the fabric, love the wider beds also. Wondering what that little door is in the bathroom?

If the front stove knobs have to be pushed in to turn like the top ones usually do, I see no problem with little kids. The youngest aren't coordinated enough to figure that out, and by the time they're old enough to do so they'd be tall enough to reach top-mounts anyway.

I like the twin bed configuration- never knew that was an option with any FGRV's.!

I am thinking that the large majority of new-Casita purchasers are adults with grown children. But anyhow, isn't the stove an option rather than standard?
