SOLD: 1988 Casita 13 - $6800

After 4 fun years, we're selling our 1988 Casita 13' Fiberglass travel trailer. This model features a closet and bathroom (with toilet and shower) in the front. A collapsible dinette / full bed are in the rear. The stovetop and sink are on one side, with storage and a fridge by the door. In addition to the full-height closet, there are many storage compartments for bedding, kitchen supplies and the like.

Since we bought it in 2013, we've:
  • Bought new OEM cushions with custom fabric
  • Replaced the subfloor and carpeting
  • Replaced the (tiny) water tank with a 23+ Gallon underslung ABS tank
  • Upgraded nearly all of the cold water piping with modern PEX
  • Upgraded most all of the lighting to LEDs, including a red / white dual color overhead light for night use
  • Installed an inverter to provide 110V power when operating off of battery
  • Moved the lead-acid battery from inside the living compartment to the tongue (safer!)
  • Added a battery trickle charger
  • Added a new marine deep cell battery
  • Added a brita tap-mounted water filter
  • Replaced signal lights
  • Replacing the tires, including the spare

I have never used propane with this camper. The previous owner used it, and demonstrated the furnace and stove when we bought it. The original piping was cracked, however, and I have never trusted it or repaired it. The hot water heater was in horrible shape, and I haven't replaced that pending the overall propane repair. You could either install an electric hot water heater (~$400), repair the propane lines, or live without hot water as we have done happily for four years :-)

Selling because I now have two children, and you really can't fit two kids, a dog, and two adults in this camper! Absolutely perfect for a couple, or a couple with a young one. A mini pack-n-play fits into the bathroom perfectly, if you leave the toilet at home.

More pictures and additional info are on craigslist...

Nice looking 13'er Chris. 13s are in demand and it should sell quickly. Please post to this thread when it sells so a Moderator can move your ad to the sold listings. Thanks and good luck to you.

I am interested in your 1988 Casita Patriot, but I am allergic to animal dander and the like. Have any animals been housed in this Casita? Thank you!
