Although we have only owned our 84 Model Casita
for a year now, we have taken it all over the place.
After spending the thanksgiving weekend at State Park in Lake Charles Louisiana, with our family "who is also a member of the Casita
Making our way towards Corpus Christi, just coming out of Houston, going over an overpass, i felt two tugs on the back our F-250 crew cab, and looked in the rear view mirror to see our Casita
whipping back and forth sideways behind our truck. As soon as i left off the gas the safety chains broke, and our Casita, crashed into the guard rail, and then darted across the median heading towards the traffic on the other side of the freeway, thank god the guard rail stopped it before it hit anybody.. Nobody was hurt, and truck didn't suffer any damage.
The tow truck driver showed up and i asked him to pull it off the freeway to the Kmart parking lot, where i already had a flatbed trailer waiting. As soon as the tow truck hooked on to our Casita, he got stuck in the mud and told me it would cost ANOTHER $175.00 bucks if i couldn't pull him out..
So i hooked his chain to my truck and yanked the tow truck and our Casita out of mud.. loaded the Casita on the flatbed, headed to a friends shop and rewelded the hitch back on, and finally made it home, and have been looking for a replacement Casita while we totally remodel this one..
