I am the second owner who bought this from the nephew who inherited from his uncle in the spring of 2014. I have painstakingly went completely through this gem from one end to the other and from top to bottom and did a frame up restoration. The pervious owner kept under an outside carport while not in use so the fiberglass is in excellent shape. (no cracks)
1)I have replaced all worn out /deteriorated outside fixtures or fittings (which was about all of them) with new.
2) resealed or calked anything needing it.
3) added new HD/Digital antenna to roof. added TV cable connection box for campgrounds who offer that service.
4)completely cleaned, sanded, resurfaced the metal framework (underneath) with POR 15 which is used by automotive restoration experts. (better than factory coating)
5) replaced wheels and tires
with new aluminum wheels/tires
6) added receiver hitch to bumper for "bumper extend-a-carrier" so you can carry additional gear such as generator
, fuel, coolers, etc. for remote camping.
7) new propane
tank cover. new regulator
1) replaced walkway area carpet w/ laminate flooring.
2) replaced factory "pressed wood" cabinet doors with solid oak (not laminate) doors (added quick access door to dinette for storage)
3) converted "water heater" from gas only to include electric as well.
4) added wall mount 19" Visio flat screen TV
5) added 4" folding covered foam bed toppers to both beds. (made both twin and full beds really comfortable instead of just the factory seat cushions).
6) added additional electric outlet.
7) replaced toilet flush arm / value.
8) added a microwave
and oak door cover.
So, overall, This camper is just as good as new with no tears or rips in upholstery as it wasn't overly used by the previous owner. Most things that were done by me were because of age rather than use.
It is in great condition with no leaks
and has plenty of life left to go another 20-30 years. Fiberglass is in excellent condition after being stored under car port. I bought a canvas cover to use for winter storage.
with little use. (small crack in case/retainer but doesn't effect use.)
stand up shower / with porcelain toilet .
storage canvas cover while not in use.
(gas/ electric/12v) 2.1 cf. (small but convenient)
2 burner stove
single bowl sink.
water holding tank / w 12 v. pump
Grey and Black water tank.
heater built in.
If you are serious, you can reach me through e-mail and I will be happy to respond either by phone or e-mail. I expect to sell to someone who really understands and can appreciate the value of the camper ( knows casita's) and can see the love I spent on its updates and restoration. I can send more pictures to your direct e-mail.
If you have a larger 4 cyl. vehicle, you should be able to tow this like a tent camper without the set-up hassle associated with pop-up campers...tow-n-go. And you can stand up in this camper as opposed to the tear-drops that have half the options and cost more than this.
I regretfully list this for sale
as I have been searching for years to find one in such good shape at this age. My needs have changed for a different style camper with more cargo room ( toy hauler). This camper is great, easy-tow (1750 lb.) for 2 adults + 1 if needed.
