Is that a Casita in the Distance?

They are Boondocking in the Darby Wells area near Ajo, Arizona. The man posts very good photos.

A couple of Casita owners, were thinking it was a Scamp, due to the small galley window. And one enlarged it by 400 and could make out a hint of red lettering.

After looking again, I didn't know about the small galley window being a good identifier for Scamps, it would not be one like ours:

But with the galley on the left side, instead of the right. Maybe a 13' as well. On the second look at it I noticed it seems to be towed by a Jeep.

A Toaster.......I can see the Simile. Perhaps instead of calling these things 'Eggs', a better simile would be to call them 'Toasters'. They look more like a toaster than an egg for sure.

I believe it to be a 13' Scamp.

I think it's a 16' side bath Scamp. That little window in the front looks like the one in my trailer.

I wonder if we'll ever find out

Its the street side view of a 13' Scamp, with a Jeep tow vehicle in front of it.

I went out and checked the window spacing on my 13'. The blank distance between the rear side window and small window is about the same as the size of the rear side window. The small window is too close to the front to allow for that spacing and an additional 3' in trailer length.

Yup, I noticed the jeep. Had to look at it a bit. It looks like a 4 door Wrangler. At first I thought it might be Joy's, but her's isn't a Wrangler.

I just saw this on the Blog: "Rick and his dog Lady live in the Scamp full time and alternate their travels during seasons between Colorado and Arizona."

Another photo, with the Scamp still in the far distance, but with a Casita in the middle distance now.

Yeap, in a way it did look like me but I don't an A/C on top and I don't have a 16 footer. That's definitely not a 13 footer. The Jeep sitting at the angle it is could pass for a dark green Cherokee from a distance.
