Hey, no sweat retiredguy

The important thing is to get out, relax and enjoy ourselves. We're fortunate to have options to suit our particular preferences.

Luckily I didn't have to climb on the roof to change the blade. You can reach it from the side and it only took a few minutes to do.

Installing this weekend

I hated the jet engine noise and embarrassment in the campgrounds so much that I ordered the kit! I surprised hubby with it yesterday and said "look what we are doing this weekend"🤗 I'm going to be a happy camper!
Casita needs to fix this! Bad advertisement for this great little camper when it's a deafening nuisance to all within earshot!

I don't know why Casita continues with the Coleman brand, especially the Mach 8 due to noise and the Mach 1 due to height. Escape has mounted the Dometic now for years. It's quiet and certainly has a lower profile.

The YouTube videos that were posted by Casita owners at rallies demonstrating the noise level of the mach 8 were enough to convince me. I'm happy to see that Jim has developed a solution for a retrofit and that Coleman has acknowledged that there's a problem and has decided to send out replacement blades. In corresponding with an expert who will remain nameless my questions about the advisability of going with the Mach 8 and doing the retrofit, rather than the Mach 1 were answered with "Even after the fix, it will still be a Mach 8".
