Hi from Shelia in Texas - Part II

Apparently I can't post replies but wanted to say thanks.

I'm about two hours from Rice. And would need to take off work to go looking at the factory. The rally in October is perfect - I registered. My worry is that a Casita might not work for a "fluffy" person but that's all my Honda Odyssey will tow. So, hence the looking and asking.

Thanks for the welcome. Seems like a nice bunch of people which is what I've heard. I can't reply but I do read the forums. Wish there was a like button for the comments.

Hi Shelia, At the bottom of every post are three boxes - one says "quote", the middle one is " " marks, and the one on the right is a sort of cartoon bubble icon for a quick reply. Are you saying you don't have these on your screen? Hmmmm...computers, right?

That's what that 'bubble' is for?

Take a look at what you do everyday and you will realize you are not "fluffy".

Even "fluffy" people are trainable. I am sure you have conquered far more complex things in your life such as using a whole bunch of appliances in your home. You know vacuum cleaners, washers and dryers, microwaves, ovens and stove tops, televisions, computers, smart phones, dishwashers, blenders, automobiles. If you can do all of that then you can easily handle a Casita.

Just watch youtube videos on the various tasks you need to do. There are lots and lots of videos on it for the RV

Welcome! My daughter and I bought a Scamp 13 Standard to go camping when our spouses couldn't. It's easy to hitch up and unhitch. I'm sure many campers were amused at my backing up efforts! Ha! But I got it in myself. You can do it!!! You'll love it!

Have you checked with Casita to see if there are any Casita owners close to you? Many owners register with Casita to show their Casita. I live in Duncanville, just south of Dallas. I have mine available to show if you are not too far away.

Fluffy

Had no idea y'all would interpret fluffy that way. Gave me a good laugh. By fluffy I mean queen size, obese, hefty, whatever you want to call it. So that's the concern about how big the bathroom is.

I am concerned about the work of hitching, unhitching, dumping the tanks, etc. as I have rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and one doctor thinks, lupus. But I think I can just take my time and then rest if I need to. At least I can once I retire.

I do have those icons but am unable to reply in any form my work computer. Hopefully I can send this reply from my kindle at home. But I won't normally be doing a lot of typing on a Kindle.

Hi Shelia. I am a "fluffy" person also. I am also an orthopedically challenged person... one good arm, new knees, etc. I have a Casita SD
17 " and I do just fine working with it. I made sure to get the electric jack, which helps tremendously. At first I had a wee bit of trouble lowering the rear stabilizers, but Larry Gamble at Little House Customs showed me a couple of tricks and I now have no problems.

The bathroom is a little snug for showering, but you work it out with practice, otherwise it is fine. Make sure you get a good mattress to put in it to accommodate your little maladies and you should be comfortable.

At the Blue Bonnet Rally this past April, a lady visiting my little Casita even laid on both beds to try out my mattresses. It gave her husband a chuckle when he found her chilling on the bed. One is store-bought and the twin on the side dinette is home-made. So come on out and visit the Pine Knot Rally and bring your list of questions and all will be answered and then some.
