Hi All! New member but long-time lurker. Hoping for some advice as a prospective first time FGRV owner. My wife and I borrowed a friend’s casita
last summer and have been looking to buy our own since. This 1985 Casita
16’ popped up for sale
near us (attached). The description states:
16’ Fiberglass Travel Trailer, Custom Paint
, Rock shield/bra, Double bed and Dinette, converts to King Size Bed, toilet, shower, two burner cooktop, 3 way refrigerator
, kitchen sink, flat screen tv, hood fan, overhead fan, storage, new battery
, 3500 Watt generator
, air conditioner (not installed), microwave
(not installed), portable waste water tote, two new 20 lb propane
tanks, new hard cover for propane
tanks, New taillights, new floor and floor covering, custom wheels, almost new tires
, receiver hitch on back for bikes or cargo carrier, power inverter, 110 and 12 volt lights
and plugs. Sway bar and new receiver hitch, lock for receiver hitch. License
plates good until 8/2022, clear title
. ~2200 lbs, loaded.
Spoke to the owners- they claim they are the second owners(bought from a friend) and that renovating the trailer was their retirement project. They’ve since upgraded to an airstream. We are going to look at it on Friday, and I’m wondering if anyone has any advice for us. A few questions that come to mind already:
1) this is the original axle
. Even if it’s not cracked already, should we plan on replacing ASAP anyways?
2) they are asking $11,500 which seems high. Is that normal pricing considering age and condition?
