New Member with question 17 ft Casita dimensions

Hello all,

This will be my first official post on the forum. I have only been a member here only for a short time but enjoy many of the threads as there is a wealth of info and knowledge here.

As a previous owner of a 2005 Casita in which I sold a few years later I am right back at it and have ordered a 2019 17ft Casita Liberty Deluxe which I will pick up in Rice,TX early Jan 2020. Retiring at years end and plan to travel the country in Jan 2020.

As I make preparations for my camper at my home base I would like to pour small smaller concrete pads so to level the unit when not traveling. I am looking for (2) dimensions to help me with this task. Approximate lengths: 1st, From the ball on the tongue to the center axle. 2nd, the dimension from the center/center of the tire. See attachment

Appreciate the help Alan

for your pads, you probably want axle to JACK, not to the ball, if you're doing 3 small pads rather than one large one. my casita 16's jack is 10" behind the ball center, and I suspect the 17 has the same tongue. my escape 21 is 11" for what thats worth.

Wink Pads?

We simply had a 10'x28' pad added to our "turn-around"..so it wd accomodate virtually any TT we might buy. We had our pad "sloped away from the house" for drainage purposes and we level the TT with a single levelling block when 'parking' it. Works for us bks we are selling our 17 Casita and buying a Escape 21 to haul grandkids along ;-).

Thanks All!

Thanks Jon, and others.....

Finished up the 3 small level pads for my new Casita, his name is " Punk" I would have liked to poured a large pad for better or future accommodations but it would have been cost prohibitive. I believe what I have done will suit me fine...

Thanks to all of you, Alan

It is perhaps the best solution I have seen in terms of being ecological and leaving lots of permeable surface for water absorption.
