Thanks, Mr. Lynn. This is really good information. Sounds like a solution will involve compromises. The difficult tank filling issue would make one lean toward getting the larger tank, and compensate by carefully distributing weight inside the trailer. Being difficult to fill from a water jug would even further support the larger water tank. Hope a solution for the horizontal fill valve reveals itself at some point!

I ordered my Casita with the 16 gal tank and have not regretted it, most of our time is spent in primitive campground or Boondocking with no or limited water source. We pack extra water for what we feel we may need for the trip by using 5 and 7 Gal water jugs and filling the tank as needed. The 7 gal jugs have a cap with a removable faucet that I replaced with a 1 NPT hose adapter and 3 ft of 1" hose so I can stick the hose in the fill spout and place the jug in the spare tire, this works great.
