Here's how the a/c is mounted. This is the factory location this year

I'd say lucky also.

That explains why I always get better mileage driving south... It's all downhill.

I question that, Eva. I believe Casita has always mounted factory AC under the front bench on 16'ers and 13'ers. Pretty sure that installation is the work of a previous owner.

I would not be comfortable with this facility at the end of the trailer when traveling ...
Can you easily remove it when traveling?

I agree, this looks less than stable for travel. Also, 16's are typically have a low tongue weight and the extra weight in the back could be an issue - low tongue weight can cause sway.

Looks like a nice trailer other than that.

Rear ac

I called casita. The ac was installed in the back that year.
I understand it does make it back heavy probably why they moved it
And now I know why the owner gave me a stabilizer tow bar with it.
Attached is the original owners manual

If there's just one long cushion on the side, does that automatically mean bunks, or could it just be a couch? Either way, I'd have to vote luckeeeeeeee!

A novice...

To all of you experienced RVers out there. I am in the process of becoming...or wanting to go on an RV experience. I wanted to ask, how do you manage your mail when out of town for a long time? Is there a way to have your mail delivered/forward? If, so please share, any ideas, information it will be appreciated!

Thank you, and happy travels!

Estella

Estella,
I would suggest that you start your own post about the mail delivery. It's not likely to get many responses buried in another topic thread. Best of luck!

Interesting… I stand corrected. Never heard of any manufacturer doing it that way from the factory before.

I am concerned that you seem to need the stabilizer bar. A properly balanced trailer should not have any tendency to sway at normal towing speeds. A stabilizer bar is meant as an auxiliary safety device for unusual situation, such as an unexpected strong wind gust or an emergency evasive maneuver.

What's on the tongue of the trailer?
