Casita History - old documents?

Hi Casita friends!

I'm on the prowl for historical documents regarding Casita's history. I've scoured the internet quite a bit including this forum, but I thought I'd reach out again, in case anyone wants to share pages of their personal Casita scrapbooks with me

Feel free to post or message me with:

1) Any documents/advertisements/articles related to Casita history (1981-present). Newer ads/articles are great too.

2) If you own a 1981 Casita that says it was manufactured in Backus, Minnesota instead of Texas - I would love to see pics of what your Casita looks like. See attached ad for kicks. ❤

3) Any info on the source of the below ad (found on fiberglassrv.com, OP didn't remember where she originally got it from)

Thanks!
Briana

Thanks Raz!

Yes I've seen that! The current owners of Casita have never been associated with Scamp or any other fiberglass trailer brand - they bought the assets out of bankruptcy in Texas in the early 80s and have been family owned ever since. But evidence suggests the previous owners may have been. Stay tuned - I am trying to dig up primary sources and interviews on this topic to finally clarify.

This is the best I have for a 1981 Casita and also some of the information contained within a decal on a Casita.


Don't ask me where I got this stuff, I've had it for years
