Measurements of Casita Bed

Hello,

Does anyone know the back bed dimensions of 2008 Casita 16' Spirit Deluxe? Also, the interior height? Thanks!

Luke,

We used a Casita 16 for one year. It's 5' 10" inside, the reason we bought a Scamp 16 that's 6'1". I recall that the bed was 6' 8" at the outside by 4' wide. The bed was not a problem for us.

Actually the height of the Casita was not a problem because I'm 6' 1", you just bend a little almost sub-consciously. I thought for the long term it was not the right choice.

The reality is that no one paces about their trailer.

I am torn. I really like the casitas. I am 6' 3", but like you said, how much standing do you really do in your camper? Also, I hear that the casitas sit a bit higher, making them a bit better for towing.

Awwww. I'm young, I can handle the slouching.

Luke,

We've had both a Casita 16 and Scamp 16. There is little quality difference between them and the Scamp delux is very nice.

As I understand it the Casita and Scamp company originally had adjoining lots in Backus, each owned by a brother, both Boler based.

I noticed not a bit of difference in towing either trailer except the Casita is heavier and has a higher tongue rating.

One year we attended a rally in Johnson City, TX, basically mostly Casitas.

On 'show and tell' day virtually every Casita owner that visited was overwhelmed by how "large" the Scamp appeared.

There are a number of factors that make most Scamps seem larger. First the presence of a front window makes it look bigger inside. Second it's taller giving a bigger feeling and third, we have layout 4, there's a wider space between the counters, about a 1/2 wider. Fourth, at least in our layout, there's an uncluttered feel due to all the counter space. The Scamp just feels bigger due to layout. The extra windows make a difference as does the side bath.
