Thanks for the advice! We've looked at the links and once my husband gets the floor redone we'll move on to doing something about the jack/rear door situation. He refused to let me order anything now as we're tossing money like water into this trailer. On the other hand, it's a little like getting married--you get to pick out all new things. Only you don't get others to throw you a shower--you have to fund it yourself.

Kai, if it's marine or RV it's expensive, just the way it is . You've heard the saying for boats...break out another thousand.

I had clearance problems when I switched minivan tow vehicles. My 2006 Toyota Sienna tailgate would clear the jack but the 2011 Sienna will not. This is with the same hitch and trailer. My Bigfoot had a gifted Casita jack that was 14 1/2" tall from deck to the top of the folded handle. I replaced the jack with a Ultra-Tow #44067 from Northern Tool that is 11" tall. Problem solved for $40.

Well, it's not as bad as boats, aka, "A hole in the water that you throw money into", but start-up $$$ for most projects will seem that way. Just don't let anyone start counting labor as a cost..... lol


But your idea of throwing "Trailer Showers" sounds like a great idea. I will be sure you get invited to mine.....

Anyone towing Casita or Scamp with Chrysler/Dodge minivan?

Responces helpful but need to hear from someone towing a Casita 17 or any Scamp 13 or 16 trailer or someone who might know if the rear hatch can swing up to open despite hitch/tongue jack pole when hooked to these or similar trailers. I will be using an load equalizer hitch to reduce tongue weight.

Hi, Borrego Dave and Bob Miller--Borrego, hadn't heard that quote, but right now it feels like it'd make a good embroidery project to hang up in the little cash pit...Bob, I'll come to your trailer shower if you'll come to mine! We seem to be registered at about 15 stores right now!
(wish lists, amazon, camping world, marine supply, ikea, northern tool, grainger, harbor freight...heck, looks like I can't even afford capital letters!) 8) (me, smiling, with glasses on.)


oh, well, break out another thousand!
