My new Casita 17'

Just purchased a 1999 17' Casita Spirit Deluxe from a super nice couple from Missouri. Drove 1335 miles round trip from Minnesota Saturday to pick it up. Original owner trailer, new tires and deep cell battery added March 2012. This trailer is SUPER SUPER clean. Now for the mods to make it my own.

Looks great from the outside, wondering what type of mods you will be making. The previous owners were very considerate by putting on new tires and new battery for you. I bet the inside looks very nice just the way it is.

Will post photos Monday of the inside. Moving kind of slow from a long day of driving on SAT.

Wow, that looks like new. Was it stored inside? Good luck with it. Be sure to join the Casita Forum. Gene has a knowledgeable, mod-friendly group over there.

Trailer was stored inside when not in use.

theresa p
Drove 9 hrs to MO from MN left MO, took 9 1/2 to get home.

Some mods I will be doing
Refrigerator light
Change all lights in and outside to LED
3rd brake light
Shelves in closet
Battery slide out tray
Master kill switch for battery
Get rid of all P Traps and use HepVo waterless waste valve Sanitary Waste Valve

I am sure there will be many other changes later down the road, will have a note book along to write down notes.

Nice catch! I'm wondering what's with the single propane tank on a 17 footer?

I asked about that and he said they never used that much propane so they took off 1 tank to save some weight.
Also a 1999 Casita never had a roof AC . The AC was in the closet on the right as you come in the door and vented out the front of the trailer on the curbside. He had the factory install the AC on the roof after he had the trailer for a few years.

Nice find Kevin! I dont think you will have any problems with only one propane tank. I only have one on my 16' and although I do cook inside and often run the fridge on propane and the furnace from time to time the tank lasts a long long time.

Nice fInd. Eighteen 1/2 hours driving plus the time with the seller, wow. I think we've seen more Casita 17's on our travels than any other fiberglass camper. There has to be a reason. So what are your plans for the Scamp? Raz

I recommend also doing the gray tank vent mod. It will drastically increase the usable size of the gray tank. You will be working right in that area when you install the Hepvo on the shower drain and the additional parts cost is <$5.
