It is possible that the Liberty bunk-widening modification and use of the small tabletop might be your salvation with the pups.

I have a 17 foot Casita Liberty and have traveled up to 6 weeks with my wife and 2 small dogs and we were all comfortable (at least no one complained). Now we are looking forward to full timing when I retire again in 4 years. My opinion is to try it out for a couple of months and if you don't like it you can sell the Casita with a minimal loss. Enjoy!

After more thinking Thursday night, looking at the Casita pictures over and over while the hounds sat next to my computer desk at home....the bloodhound kept looking larger while the room in the Casita started looking smaller. When all three hounds stood by my chair wanting attention, I realized once again, there would not be enough room for all 3 dogs and myself in that trailer.

It wouldn't be fair to them, although they sleep most of the time, they do need room to walk around as I do also.

So I slept on my thoughts without making a final decision. For the first couple of hours on Friday morning I had an overwhelming feeling it was the wrong trailer. As much as I would liked for it to work, I honestly had doubts.

So I called the seller early Friday morning, catching him before he replaced the floor with my choice, and told him I had decided not to buy the Casita. He had a couple that was visiting this weekend from out of state and they were really wanting this 17' but were going to come up and look at his 16' 2009 that he is completing.

It was a great trailer, in great condition. Only weeks before this I had been thinking of trading my H3 for a F150 and towing a bigger Bigfoot or Nash trailer. That may be my new option.

Thanks for all your comments. You have a great forum here with loads of information.

Goodbye

You certainly don't have to upgrade your tow capacity to get a bit more square footage. This might be sacrilege on the FGRV forum, but nearly all aluminum makes for a very light trailer...

As far as the Nash goes, we were just looking at them and are very impressed with the 4- season and off-road capability, but the weight was significant.

Aluminum is a fantastic material.

Yes, I've heard that they might some day make airplanes out of it.

Before we purchased a fiberglass trailer we considered an all aluminum trailer. We found that they are surprisingly heavy.

If you compare like sizes the weight difference is not so great.

Fiberglass is better for phones.
