After looking at a couple of 13' trailers (a '79 Boler
and a '90 Lil Bigfoot), I managed to find an '01 16' Casita
3 hours from home which cost about the same amount of money. I was fortunate to have a friend who is an RV technician who happens to live in the city where the Casita
was, so I got him to check it out for me before I drove up there to meet with the buyer.
The only thing I'm concerned about is that it appears to have a non-standard opening in the front of the trailer for the portable a/c unit. It looks like one of the previous owners just cut out a section of the wall and made a removable panel to cover the hole when the a/c unit isn't being used. Can someone please confirm that this isn't a factory modification?
Any ideas for a better way (ie: nicer looking and more waterproof) to seal this opening?
FYI this is a standard model Casita
, meaning that it has no bathroom, which is exactly what we were looking for. So it has two bunks in the front. The portable a/c unit, when in use, sit on the bottom bunk.
BTW I live in British Columbia, Canada. I'm guessing there aren't many Casitas around here.
