Hello from NC - Introduction

Good Morning All,


New members here, making an introduction (well delurking at least). DH and I have decided that the Casita Independence will be the right model for us. We currently have a T@G and we anticipate ordering the Independence in the next 6 months. We are aware of the delivery timeline (6 months+) and are OK with it in the grand scheme of our plans.


We attended Eggshells at the Outerbanks this year as "Little Guy" customers (T@G) and seeing all the "Eggs", confirmed for ourselves that the Independence is the right next RV for us. We toyed with the idea of full-timing in a Class A...but that is just not our style. While they are bright and shiny and spacious, we just can't envision traveling down the road in an "apartment" hehe. We love our little T@G, nicknamed Mercury, but the need for a wet bath is becoming really evident :-)


We met some lovely people at the rally, who graciously gave tours of their Casitas and Scamps and the sense of community also reassured us that a Casita and the community built up around them is the right thing for us.


It is a pleasure to "meet" you all and I can see from reading the forum, you all are very generous with your time and experience. We look forward to joining you all on the road soon.


Jane and Paul (aka Millie online)

P.S> Just realized, I posted this on the Sticky Thread - sorry, reposting here so it is seen

Welcome, Jane and Paul! It looks as if you have found the trailer for you and found the forum so you are in good shape.

You did it right! Go to a rally, tour a lot of trailers, and pick the one that works for YOU.

Did we see you at OBX? We have the 2015 Casita Independence that was on the ocean side - Cozy-Casa. You can see some more trailers at a smaller gathering in VA at Hungry Mother State Park with Walt - he just got a NEW 2017 Escape 17' you may like. We will be there late Friday 10/27 and leaving 10/29

You are so right. We thought we wanted a Spirit, but when we saw the Independence we knew the twin beds would be the best configuration for us.

I've read on the forum, that Casita has switched from the two small tables in the Independence to a single more "medium" size table which will be perfect for us.

Our thought process in deciding on the Independence was..."what is the most important feature for us?" we both agreed that a good nights sleep is the most important thing, and that as far as having a "dinette"...not as important. Quite often when we travel we eat out anyway and we'll almost always have a picnic table, if not that, then we have a great fold-up aluminum table that we travel with. The 4.5 hr drive home from Hatteras gave us a lot of time to talk about what we had seen and what we needed.

I am beyond eager to order our trailer, but we'll wait just a bit...I'm curious though, is there a better time of year to place our order? Is winter a little "slower" at the factory, fewer orders coming in, or are they equally busy all 12 months of the year?

Hi Bryan, no I don't think we got a chance to visit...even though we live in NC, the heat of that weekend really took it out of us and we didn't get around to touring Casitas until late in the day on Sunday.

Don't know as we'll be able to make the rally in VA, sadly, we're about 3.5 hrs away from there and we have been on the go almost every weekend this month. Not yet retired, our weekends are sometimes saved for house projects - dang! Thanks for the info though, we are trying to keep our eyes open for Casita rallies that we can get to.

Thanks too for the welcome, we sure did meet some nice folks at Eggshells at the OBX and that helped confirmed for us that a Casita is the right path for us.

Millie (Jane)

Hi Millie
Sorry I wasn't able to attend the OBX rally and get to meet you.
Too bad you can't make it to our mini rally at Hungry Mother. You'd get to see some more trailers and enjoy a beautiful part of the mountains. I expect we'll get to meet up sometime.

Walt

Welcome to the group Millie and good luck on your future Casita purchase. We were there at the Eggshells gathering too, over on the ocean side. We had the Escape 19 nestled between two of the teardrop folks.

Bsedwebt / Cozy-Casa, were you the folks with the Coke themed egg with the white and red striped awnings? If so, we liked your decor! So you just got an Escape 17 and you're in central VA? Maybe we can connect at an Egg gathering sometime.

John and Jeannie.
