Hello there all!
We're Patrick & Marie, from the Southern Oregon Coastline.
A few years back, we went to the Bullards Beach Fiberglass Rally
, as we've been long time campers, and thought we'd come check these things out.
Now, we've had motorhomes, TT's, teardrops, & canned hams...and have enjoyed them all. We've made some wonderful family memories and had some really good times.
But after seeing her first Casita
, and doing some research and learning the benefits of them, my wife has become like a dog with a Frisbee about owning one...she just wouldn't let loose of the idea!
I was making my usual rounds through Craigslist one morning acouple weeks ago, and I was just about to shut 'er down and head to work, something told me to do one last search under Casitas.
Well, lo and behold, there was an add for one that had just been posted. One that within a relatively close enough driving distance, one that was a 17 footer (I'm on the tall side and required that extra height), and one we could actually afford (always the unicorn! $$$)
So we made our initial contact, only to discover that someone was already on their way to check it out!! Nooooo!!!!
I think I chewed through all my fingernails waiting for the call back to see if it sold
It turned out that the people were only out kicking tires
, and yes, it was still available. (we weren't gonna drive 5 hours each way to find that it had just been sold
without a green light)
So the next day, off we went.
He shoots...he SCORES!!
Not only was it in really nice condition for it's age, was completely tricked out with many of the add-ons we had in mind to do...but it was even a Spirit Deluxe...the exact model we had wanted to get! WOO-HOO!!! Plus, the folks we bought it from were just lovely, and I like dealing with kind people.
SO, we are the new owners of an '05 Casita
, and couldn't be more thrilled! Heck, my wife is stoked even more than I am!!
We're off in 3 days for our first weekend trip in her (also our anniversary), and are also signed up for the Bullards Beach rally
in July (got the 1 and only spot left available!)...but we'll be using it a lot long before then.
We're glad to be here, and looking forward to meeting you all out on the road!
