Diane, having been a camper/rv'er basically since I was 4 years old as well as my husband and I owned and operated a Big Rig park, I have ran across many a newbie. My recommendation is to try all types of camping out first for a few days here and there. To determine what you like best.
A lot of your camping style will determine where and for how long you will camp. I am more of a use the Casita
for traveling versus the boon-docker camper that likes to camp out in the middle of nowhere without services. A couple of day's and I am over it. But would rather use the Casita
to travel and see things. Best of luck, Welcome to our world and Congrat's on the Casita!
