My wife and myself reside in norhtern Iowa and are considering a Scamp or a Casita. Because the Casita comes in a 17 footer we are leaning toward that brand. We are also open to other brands used.
My question is most of the Casitas owners seem to be in the souther part of the states, with exceptions. Casitas being built in Texas would explain part of this. As Casitas owners how do you feel they will hold up to the Upper Midwest winters? I may not beable to provide storage for the trailer in the winter. Do you feel the Scamp would be better for the northern States?
Any imput would be appreciated.
If I'm not mistaken, the Casita's only insulation is the carpeting on the walls and ceilings. Not sure about the Scamp. That being said, our 17' Freedom Deluxe stayed quite toasty using the furnace
, in the chill of our VA and NC mountains. However, you could definitely tell it was cold at night if you were sleeping in the outboard position, and the single pane glass tended to sweat and freeze.
One consideration might be the Escape
). It comes with a standard layer of insulation, with the option of doubling it, and the option of double paned glass windows
. These trailers are made in Canada, so they KNOW cold. Reading under tutorials (on your left there), read [b]Winter Camping
. Who wants to stop in the winter????????
