I brought home this 2017 Casita
to keep my 1992 13' Scamp
I bought the 13' Scamp
a couple of years ago on impulse. I wanted a fiberglass trailer and didn't know what I wanted or needed. I had to buy something to get a feel for what was most important.
Turns out the 13' does everything I need it to do when camping in campgrounds which is why I'm keeping it, plus it's sentimental.
It can probably be said this 17' Casita
was an impulse buy as well. I just started thinking that for some trips it might be nice to be able to boondock and have a shower/toilet. I started looking at Scamps and Casitas with bathrooms. I ran across this one here in the classifieds. I think I overbought, but many of the add-ons are items one might purchase anyway right?
Taken from the sales ad: (I figured it had everything I'd need for boon docking plus some.)
