Twin axle fiberglass rv

Yesterday saw from a slight distance a twin axle fiberglass rv that looked similar to our casita but longer. Any idea what it might be?

Escape 19 or 21, Oliver?
Your profile says you own a Scamp 16, but you say similar to your Casita.
I'm confused.

An Oliver 23.5' looks like a stretched (and raised) Casita 17, so that seems a lot more likely than the boxier Escapes. This it?

I'm no longer confused as OP profile now says Casita.

Somehow there looks like a big difference between the Casita and the Oliver, more like $40,000 difference.

It's kind of interesting. The family resemblance to Casita is hard to miss and more than skin deep. The smaller Oliver is virtually identical to the layout of a Casita 17 Spirit Deluxe, but different in almost every detail of construction. It's as if Oliver took a Casita and asked what it would be if money were no object: aluminum frame, composite floor, full inner hull to eliminate rivets, four season capability, high end plumbing and wiring, stainless fittings...

Then they stretched it to add a longways sleeping arrangement, larger galley, and more storage- all things Casita owners often want when they upgrade. Only 7' wide, versus 8' for Bigfoot and Airstream, so not as roomy, but better towing and off-road agility. The bigger Oliver is far and away their best seller. Nice trailers.

I now own a 17 Casita and have been to the Oliver plant to look at new Olivers, I was just making a statement on the price difference, I'm pretty familiar with the differences.
