WE have a 2200W Briggs & Stratton wh powers all + the AC if needed.. not buy a std, open-frame "construction site" type gen...they way too loud unless u r gonna only camp in boondocks
They're just too loud, period! I doubt you would even care to listen to your own open frame generator in the boondocks. Buddy Mike (and he's primarily a boondocker) went out and bought a Champion 3000w inverter generator for camping, as an addition to his larger 'Open-frame' Generac for home standby.

Re spare tire. My 2010 17’ Casita was rubbing on the back so I bought 4 - 5” diameter vinyl self-stick, flat door knob bumpers from Lowe’s and stuck to the camper between tire and camper. No more rubbing on wall.

There is now Little Home on the Road near Dallas. People on Casita sites seem to be quite happy with them. We have the awning, and use it, but if you are going to get and use a Clam, you probably won’t need both.

Awning, Spare Tire

We didn't buy an awning, but used a Clam Shell. We were happy with that arrangement. We liked the flexibility of setting up the Clam Shell anywhere. However when we went to sell our Casita, lack of an awning was a negative point.

We asked Casita factory to not mount our spare tire. Instead we bought the 2 inch hitch mount and spare tire holder from Orbital Machine Works in Lewisville TX. The hitch mount bolts to the frame and the spare tire holder slips into it to hold the spare tire a couple of inches off the Casita. The spare tire holder also has a 2 inch hitch mount into which we mounted a bike rack carrier. It is not an inexpensive solution, but it works very well and we were happy we did it.
