from inside the vehicle...

Hi Mac,

A truly lovely companion! What kind is he? We got our pup from a rescue and he looks JUST like this (and this is his preferred way to travel as well!)

Thanks,
Crystal

Yesterday, 11-18-09, a Casita 17, tugged by a white pick up, eastbound on I-10 just east of Coachella, Ca, mid afternoon. As I drove passed, I recognized the bearded driver and waved.. but, I am really bad with names and can't tell you who it was!

I saw the same rig an hour or so later exiting for the rest stop at Wileys Well. I had dewatered the dogs shortly after I passed you the first time, so you got ahead of me.

Today on the way home from California we saw a blue pickup pulling what looked like a 13 foot scamp just inside the border of Oregon. Then a Casita about Roseburg heading southbound, we waved and waved. Then we saw one parked in an RV park near Glendale Oregon.

We just returned from a little two-night trip to St. Joseph Peninsula State park and were pleased to see a 17' Casita Liberty pull in near us on the second day. Chuck and his wife bought it in March and have already put on 13,000 miles! They were on their way home to Key West and were hopping from one state park to another. They said they have stayed at all the Florida camping state parks except for three - quite an accomplishment! On this two-week long trip, they only saw three molded fiberglass trailers, a 17' Casita in Pensacola and two EggCampers (including ours). That is amazing, considering there's probably a thousand Casitas for every EggCamper. (BTW, theirs was the only molded fiberglass trailer we saw.)

Again, in Quartzsite at 3:30 this afternoon, an Escape tugged by a blue pick up with matching cap, westbound on Main street and Central.

My wife and I saw two Casitas nose-to-tail northbound on Highway 79 near (I think) Aguanga on Saturday, Nov 21 at 1pm.

We're still new to this and were so focused on determining the type of trailer that we completely ignored the tow vehicles and didn't even wave!

We were southbound with our Compact Jr in tow.

Later in the day we were on S22 at the vista point overlooking Borrego Springs when we saw another Casita go by headed down the hill. When we checked in at the Palm Canyon campground we found both this Casita, owned by Kevin, and another owned by Bob. We had a good time visiting with the owners and learning many things about them, the Anza-Borrego desert, and other areas of the country.

Suprise, suprise!

Thanksgiving morning, deep in residential Pinellas County, Largo, FL; a white Burro or U-Haul turned South on Highland Ave from Rosery.

Of course we had to follow it! It turned out to be a Burro towed by a Ford with a Chevy engine (sorry I forget the year)

Nice rig! I love it when folks include photos with their sightings

I'd say it's a Burro.

And, Clive, I just want you to know that in my mind all of your posts are "read aloud" in Clive's Bengtsson's classic accent (Of course, being from northern Minnesota, it doesn't sound all that unusual )

Trailer: Scamp 16 ft Side Bath

Yesterday as I was departing after a pre-holiday visit in Chandler, what should I spy just 2 doors down but a lovely Casita. This being Arizona, the front plate can be anything and this one read "Ray and Ellen". My grey-matter started cooking to remember which FGRV member lives in Chandler. During this pondering process, a gentleman appeared at the driver's side window - startled me a bit, but this was "Ray" of Ray & Ellen. Turns out we'd met at last year's Dome Rock Rally near Quartzsite, and we had a nice if brief visit in the middle of the road! We're all planning to attend in 2010. Regards, L 'n D

Today, in Quartzsite, at the RV Pit Stop waiting to use the dump station in a 16 ft Scamp, The Dodsons. I said HEY while getting my propane tanks filled!

Saw a 16' Scamp in St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach on turkey day but too late to knock on door.
