For those of you looking for a smaller trailer, there is one on the Cleveland, Ohio Craigslist. Since I don't own it I don't know where to post it. Terry R

Hey, Doona D., thanks for putting this where is needs to go. Now after all that, my son is thinking he may be interested in it. I hope no one beats him to the punch if he is. If he isn't, I hope this helps out a Casita seller. Terry R

Terry, feel free to post pictures and give your honest appraisal of what you saw. People looking to buy would appreciate it. Even though the trailer might not be what your son was looking for, others needs/wants may be different.

The main reason my son passed was the size was smaller than he visualized it being. We have a 17 foot Casita and he can stand in it without stooping. He had to stoop in this trailer. His wife said it felt too cramped for her and she did not want to do the work it would take to get this trailer up to par.

It appeared to be a trailer that was solid and would not take a lot of money to fix up real cute.

1. At least one vent on plastic vent on the back driver side would need to be replaced.

2. One vent up by the front air conditioner could be removed, scraped and repainted.

3. If I were purchasing it I would take the all the cupboard doors off and repaint them or just have new ones cut. They are currently grey and in the back one across the top there are small drilled holes that need filled.

4. The microwave space has no door, but it has an Emerson microwave blocked in place with a strip of wood.

5. I would also remove the stove top and sand it to get the rust off and use appliance paint on it.

6. The carpet in the front of the dinette section has been removed and replaced with stick down swirly, light greyish tile. I would remove that and put in a piece of one piece vinly. Along the edges where the carpet was removed in yukky gluey looking stuff that could be fixed with gluing down some white molding.

7. Bathroom drain has a crack in that chrome portion around the holey drain part. Easy fix.

8. I would want to remove the Casita decals since they are very much showing their age.

9. The upholstry looked perfect. Like they may have been stored instead of used.

10. The curtains cleaned up well and are original factory. Some age wear spots were nicely repaired and barely noticeable.

11. Furnace, A/C, and fridge work. He had it hooked to city water and we didn't try the pump since we decided we weren't going to buy it.

12. Of course, the tires would be a concern. I think the finish on the outside looked chalky with neglect but I think it could be brought back with time and effort.

So paint, cleaner, wax and elbow grease and a "little" more cash could bring this little egg back to its formal glory. In the meantime it is campable with only some cleaning.

I don't know how to get the extra pictures from my E-mail to this site but I can forward them to those that want to see them.
