I hope that you are having some luck researching the camper that it right for you. Just wanted to say that I also attended a rally prior to owning my Casita
and was welcomed with open arms - even invited to attend the dinner and other activities. At a rally this past weekend, there were several people there who were still "shopping" for the right rig! As stated already, most FG owners are very willing to show their camper and are very used to being asked about them. Good luck!
I hadn't read all of the recent posts before writing the above comments. Sounds like you are getting lots of information at the rallies, etc.! If you pass through Franklin, NC on your way to or from Atlanta, you are welcome to look at my new Casita Spirit Deluxe 17'. It will be in town around Thanksgiving!
