Always wanted one and finally found one I could afford, needs work, have a question how can I find a photo or catalog of the 86 Casita I would like to try to make it original as much as possible. Thank you:

Welcome, Adriana!

Other than a few details like the type of carpet on the walls and the upholstery on the cushions, they really haven't changed much over the years. Go into the sold archives here and at fiberglass-rv-4sale.com and look for other Casitas- don't have to be the same year- to get an idea of what yours looked like.

While you're looking, you might see some ideas to make it better than original!

Before you get too deeply into interior rehab, make sure you have a weather-tight shell sitting on a solid foundation. Check tires (dates, not tread!), axle, brakes, frame (rust, cracks), floor (soft spots), body-to-frame attachment (rusted bolts), leaks (windows, door, vents, rivets).

Congratulations, and best wishes getting this one camp ready!

How about some pictures? Directions for uploading are in post #7 here.

Welcome to FGRV, Adriana!


We ended up gutting our '73 amerigo and over months of sourcing and planning and pricing and discussing we decided not to go all-original, and ended up happy with our "make it your own" results.


At the same time, if you've ever gone to a vintage trailer rally (which we have now), you can see the wonder of going all-original! Some fab trailers.


Wishing you good rehabbing,
& Happy Trails


BEST
Kai
