Smile Iowa says Hello!

I am new to the forum and new to Casita. After a lot of research on line, we think we would like to have a Casita 17sd. Not to many for sale in Iowa. Would there be any one in the vicinity that would be kind enough to let us look at theirs so we would know if we like them in case a good deal on E-bay etc. might come along?
We have had 3 pop ups and are tired of popping up. Our neighborhood covenants limit us to how big we can go and the Casita looks like it would be our next move. Thanks

Welcome to FGRV....I'm sure a Casita owner will be near you and chime in.

Never in doubt, often wrong

Welcome from Iowa!. You'll see ads for various trailer pop up on the forum. Not many in Iowa that is why we went new both times with the Scamp not to mention miles, time and the resale value of a fiberglass trailer. It's not a 17' Casita but someone has a 13' Scamp, fairly new, in Iowa City.

You might want to check out RV storage facilities near you. Say you are in the market for an RV storage facility, see if there are Casitas there, and ask the manager to send your note to the owner. There's no harm in asking and I find our storage manager to be very helpful (I trust most others are as well).
