Used Casita

Hello all!

My fiancee and I are in the market for a used Casita. We know we want a 17 foot for the extra ceiling height. We like the Spirit or Freedom floor plans. Our question is: Going back in model years, up to 20 years or so, were there any significant changes we should be aware of.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Yes.

Casita improved their floor design over the last 20 years to better reduce water intrusion/rot, the AC moved to the roof, the rear window was enlarged to allow for refrigerator removal and water piping changed from plastic to PEX. A 10 year old model is much different than a 20 year old model. Even a 5 year old will be different than 10.

A conversation with Casita can give you the dates when changes were implemented.

The 2002 and previous years, do not have the larger rear window to pass a refrigerator through. Refrigerator replacement requires some serious modifications.

Casita changes

Go to the Casita Forum. There is a thread listing all production changes by year. Casita makes mid year production changes so you have to view the trailer to make sure the changes were made to the specific year trailer but the thread is a good shopping guide.

I show how to do on my web site! Well actually, it was how I did mine. You may figure out a different way but this worked for me.

Refrig replacement Casita 2002 and earlier.
