Break in trip

I have already posted this on another forum if it seems familiar to some of your.

We took our first trip in the new Casita 16 just four days after picking it up at the factory. We traveled from East Texas to north of Indianapolis. It was 10 days and not a single problem one that we can complain about. The only thing one might consider a concern was a rivet that broke off but Casita is sending me a replacement plus a few spares. The refrigerator was initially cooled using propane and reached 34 degrees inside (colder in the freezer) and while towing it was on 12VDC. While parked, 110 VAC temperature inside the refer never rose above 40 degrees. The water pump worked flawlessly along with every part of the plumbing system; the AC kept the trailer cool even in 90 degree outside temperatures; all doors worked as designed and to put it bluntly, we were and are pleasantly pleased. We even saw an increase in fuel mileage over the same routes we pulled our former stick trailer which weighed 1,000 pounds less than the Casita and we never experienced problems with passing big rigs or severe cross winds. We made the right choice in selecting the Casita.

Break in

Thanks for the comment. It's quite a thing for me to completely pleased with something new right out of the box (factory) and I am a believer that anything mechanical (electronic too) will break sooner or later. LOL
