Thanks Gina. Yes we (me) are very excited by the prospect of travel in our new little fiberglass home. We live in a redwood forest, so we are looking to go to several beach locations (one is just a few miles from us) at first (the old question of the mountains or the beach). I am planning all the little touches to make it like home: satellite tv and internet, plenty of power (big batteries, generator, and solar) to run things, places for us and our three large dogs to sleep ... you know the usual camping accessories

The money we saved can now be spent at Camping World and the other trailer toy retail locations.

We have an older model, a Fiber Stream, which is no longer made. It's floorplan is a mirror image of a Casita Liberty, flipped front-to-back.

The features it has that I like:
  • Dual Axles
  • 3-Burner Range with gas oven
  • double sink in kitchen
  • Either Twin Beds or King Bed configuration
  • Large Kitchen Window
  • 6'3" interior height
  • "Large" exterior hatch to storage under curbside bunk (27" wide x 9" high)
  • 4 cu. ft. refrigerator (gas/110 volt)
After I bought it I added:
  • Microwave
  • 10' Carefree Fiesta Awning
  • Ceiling mounted TV/VCR (yes it's old, but I'm cheap)
  • Air Conditioner
  • Tinted Windows (Limo Dark)
  • Cable TV connection
  • Back-up Lights
  • Fantastic-Fan
  • Porch Light with inside switch
What I wish it had/What I may add in the future:
  • Roof Vent/Fan in Bathroom
  • 3-Way Refrigerator (gas/110 volt/12 volt DC)
  • Room Darkening Window Shades
What it has that I would rather not have:
  • High-Lift Axles (5" taller than standard)

Fred is it possible to lower your unit by readjusting your spring hangers? My 15 foot Boler had the leaf springs mounted on top of the axle and by putting them under the axle I lowered the unit by approx 5 inches. A very easy job,good luck. Sid

Yes, the Fiber Stream uses leaf spring suspension, so it could be done. However, I decided to leave well enough alone, since I tow with a weight distributing hitch that Charlie D reminded me would become dangerously low if I lowered the trailer.
