Greetings All, New Guy Here

Just a quick hello to my new forum group members. I am fairly new to owning a fiberglass camper. I purchased a 1993 Casita 16' Freedom Deluxe last June and spent most of the summer months refurbishing/updating the old girl. We are not new to camping, just new to the small world of a Casita. We have camped in tents, truck campers, an Aliner, a toy Hauler and medium size (26') travel trailer. We based out of east central Indiana and our plan going forward is to pull our cozy Casita all over the country, that is once we get past this dang virus thing.

Thank you for having me here. I look forward to learning much from your prior experiences.

R. Frasier

Welcome! Enjoy! Be sure to check out the manufacturers tab on the upper right of the page. There you will find a Casita section, and most of the threads on Casitas are cross listed there. You will find a lot of improvements, upgrades, and repairs others have done.

Welcome! Very nice looking classic. I especially like the look of the clean roof and curved door

Welcome to the fiberglass world. I had a 1994 16er so I'm quite familiar with your rig. I see it is well decked out with furnace, AC and awning so you are well equiped. There are several major plumbing upgrades I did and recommend. For example, replacing p traps with Hepvo valves, especially the shower p trap. That'll eliminate having to use the dreadful external shower drain valve. Also upgrading and integrating the black and grey sewer connections will make for easier, faster, and less messy dumps.
Check out the Little House Customs store for more info on these and many more useful and fun mods.

I have a 1995 Casita, looks a lot like yours. I love it, my personal rolling motel room.
