We've had our "new" (17ft) Casita for 14 years. We bought an old (16ft) two years prior, to see if we would like that kind of camping. (We did!)

I'm in the middle of year 13. Love "My Little Marshmallow" and have had absolutely no problems with it. I see other trailers that I like but I just can't imagine parting with "Puff" it suits Lily and I just fine.

We had a Casita for 4 years and were very happy with it. But grandchildren happened and we wanted a second bed. So we sold the C for $4000 less than we paid and made a nice down payment on this 5.0. This is our third summer with it, the kids love it and I don't anticipate changing again.

I bought the 13' Trillium in July, 1998. It was exactly what I wanted......simple to tow, set-up and had no leaks. Didn't have a furnace, had an ice box and two burner cook-top. Nothing to complicate things. Loved it for 14 years.....still love it. Gave it to my daughter so it would stay in the family. the years went by, I thought.....would be nice to have deep-cell battery, front dinette so I wouldn't need to switch the table, outside know 'a little more room'. And happen to see the 4500 Trillium for sale in April 2012. Just what I wanted. This will be the one till I can no longer camp.

I have had my Cloud for 3 years now and I am still convinced it is the best purchase I have ever made. It is a work in progress but I use it in between modifications. In my first 3 years it has followed me around 10000 miles and has allowed me to see places I wouldn't have been able to see without her plus I love the attention she gets when we have her out an about. I spend a quarter of my day just meeting new people, answering questions, and giving tours if my Cloud which I lovingly call my "Escape Pod".
