I'm getting ready to order a new Casita
17 footer and I have a couple of questions. I've pretty much decided on all the important stuff but there's a couple of things I'm curious about.
I looked at an almost identical model to what I want to buy on Casita's referral plan today and I was impressed. The owners have had it five years, been all over the country in it and really liked it.
My only previous experience with small trailers was an 18 foot stick trailer and that was over twenty years ago. It leaked. Everywhere. I didn't have much time to worry about the leaks
though. I was too busy trying to make all the appliances work...which they never did.
Captain's chairs or not? The captains's chairs look comfortable but do you give up a lot of storage space to get them? I'll be solo most of the time and I'll be boondocking
a lot at work too, sometimes for a week or more at a time.
fan? What exactly does it do and is it a worthwhile option?
Is the tile flooring worth the cost? Where I'll usually be boondocking
is mostly dirt and rocks and mud in the winter and I wondered if the carpet would be a dirt magnet.
? It's spendy but if it's worth it I'll add it to the list. If it gets rained on will it mold if it's retracted when wet? Does it shed water in the rain? Will moderately high winds bother it?
Any other tips or tricks or just general advice? I'll take all of that I can get.
I'll be ordering next Monday and any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance. Bob
