My Casita Vlog

I just bought a 1985 Casita 13' a little over a week ago. I've been doing some video blogging of my experience getting her ready for some epic adventuring! If you are interested, below are the links.

I also did a post from Scamp Camp! Most of the campers there were Casita's! It was a fun time! While there, I shot a short video of a few other campers owned by others. They include a 19 foot 5th wheel Scamp, a Little Joe by WiesCraft, and a new 2015 Casita Independence.

I really enjoyed all of your videos as you did a really good job. Couldn't believe Petey is 13 years old though. What an adorable dog and I am normally a "big" dog person only. Is he a Maltese? I'm not good at identifying smaller breeds.

It was great seeing inside all the units. So much variety. And, your unit, I could not believe it was a 1985 as it looked great.

I think we all know how expensive your area of the country is too. That is so unbelievable to someone like me that lives in the midwest. My son went out to CA with the military and he was just blown away by the prices of everything. He said "Cheap bread like we get at home for a $1.00 is $4.00 a loaf here!".

I am certainly look forward to following your travels. Enjoy!

We all appreciate your son's service and thank him for that, but he may need to find a different place to shop. Prices aren't that bad. Here's this weeks sample. See page 5 for bread.

My son & family just got moved to Fort Bragg, NC. She and the kids desperately want to go back to CA though which isn't making the transition easy. He is an LTC but very frugal. He was about 30 minutes from Disneyland. I don't know CA very well. He is full-time active reserve.

He gets his frugality from mom so that is why I am searching for a molded fiberglass trailer and this vlog with a 1985 Casita really speaks to my frugal side.

The Scamp Deluxe just always holds it beauty too with natural wood. The Little Joe, it was neat to see someone actually in one and know their height although I am an adult child and two big dogs from considering that. It was also my first look inside of a Casita Independence Deluxe and I liked that too. I am better off with limited choices. At some moment, I'll just decide, maybe put the names in a hat and draw one since I have not really established one to be considered superior to the other with all things considered or easier yet, something comes up locally.

Thanks Cathy! Yes, Petey is a Maltese. He's a sweetie!

Most of the cost of living here in the bay area is housing. Most other things cost the same, which is weird, since so much produce comes from here. An avocado costs the same here as in Portland. But when you're forced to earn a six figure salary as a single person just to afford rent, it's a little over the top. The rent for a one bedroom in a newer unit (less than 10 years) in my town starts at $3000 a month. My complex is at least 30 years old, so it's a little cheaper, but not much.

It's all relative. We live in KS, a city of 25,000 people, so the cost of living is low but so are the wages although when I had watched those house flipping shows long ago, a $300,000 house before fix-up would probably be $40,000 here and less in some of the outlying areas. A great deal? No, we are losing population.

Well, I've been traveling for nearly 5 months and have been some fantastic places. I recently posted three videos from my trip to the Olympic National Park.

I'll be staying in the bay area for the foreseeable future. Looking to get another $@#.

Hi Bex

Loved the videos. Good job indeed. Found your "walk thru" of the various trailers at the Oregon gathering really insightful and caused us to re-think and change our mind about many things.

Hope you get to go out on the road again sometime, even if it is just for long weekends, etc.
Best regards

...And then you met Gina and me (and Skip), on Hurricane Ridge (after the end of #22).

We drove down the way you came up, although we only had a day to do it; just passing through. Love seeing in your videos, what we missed: we will be back!

Thanks so much! I do intend to be out, somewhere close, just about every weekend I'm not working. I'm just too addicted to this way of life to stop. :-)

Ha ha, YES!! It was such a pleasure to meet all of you! Definitely go back when you get the chance. The coast was so wonderful. I could easily have spent a week there.

We were VERY interested in a Casita 16, but we'd never seen one and given that I couldn't find or may have overlooked that the 16 is not like the 17 in head room, I would have been very disappointed to buy one and THEN find out. Your video at the Oregon gathering where you focused strongly on head room was so very, very insightful and caused us a lot of re-thinking. Thanks so much.

So glad you found it useful. When I was looking into buying a camper, I found very few videos about them, so I was hoping others would find my little walkthroughs helpful. FYI, the newer 16' Scamps (2006 and newer) have more headroom than the 16' Casitas.

I recently visited America's newest National Park, Pinnacles. I hiked through a talus cave and met a guy with a huge antenna. It was a wonderful weekend and was really the highlight of my rather terrible year so far.

I recently went to Death Valley. It was a wonderful trip and I had the incredible luck to be there during a super bloom where the flowers were just about exploding everywhere. Here are links to parts 1 & 2. I still have one more to go. I hope you enjoy!
