Casitas are 17 foot. They used to make a 13 and a 16 foot model as well. Most of the used units will be either 16 or 17 footers. 16 foot has a lower ceiling height. Sold
here in NC in four hours, before the pandemic. Buyer just resold it for almost 50% more, welcome to pandemic pricing.
IMHO, ordering a new one is a good backup plan. Scamp's deposit is small and refundable. I think Casita is similar, not sure. It could take you until 2022 to find one anyway, depending on your flexibility and ability to pounce (can you drive a long distance and be able to leave any day of the week?) Used trailers can sell in hours, not days. I spent a year finding my Trillium
and at least six months to find my Escape
19. One was over 400 miles away and the other was 625 miles away (one way). Bought the Escape
within an hour or two of it being up for sale
People used to camping in tents can find these trailers spacious! People coming from larger RVs can find them TINY.
I'd contact Escape
, they will put you in contact with a local owner. Some time spent in an Escape 19 and 17 could change your mind on Casita, or could confirm your choice. A Scamp
16 is another choice. I'd contact Scamp
as well. I used to always recommend visiting a rally
and touring many of the brands. Covid has put a damper on rallies.
We visited a rally
AFTER buying our Casita (we did it backwards). There we toured an Escape 19. Oops! The Escape fit us so much better. Didn't know the brand even existed prior to that rally
. The various brands are NOT interchangeable. Each has their own designs, advantages and disadvantages. Even within a brand like Casita, the Spirit is different than the Liberty, which is different than the Independence, which is different than the Freedom.
