Hi! I am Anniva

Hi! I am Anniva and my husband and I are looking for a nice used Casida, or similar travel trailer. It has years since we owned one and are trying to get up to speed on the best new features for our needs. We are retired and expect to make trips of a week or two exploring both campgrounds and wilderness areas. We will concentrate our search in Georgia and the surrounding states.

Welcome, Annika, youíve come to the right place!
The first thing you will want to consider is your tow vehicle and its capabilities...or maybe youíre thinking of purchasing a new one? That will give you an idea of what size trailer you are looking forómake sure youíre figuring in fully loaded weight, NOT empty! There could be up to a thousand pound difference. And you donít want to get right up there against your vehicleís max.

Find a rally and take a look at what is out there. Once I saw a 13í I realized it was just too small and I didnít want to take down and put up a bed every day. That doesnít bother some people. I really love the 17í and by seeing a number of them in person, realized the Spirit model would work best for me. You may find another kind of trailer you like too! Rallies are also a good place to get a lead on one for sale. Thatís how I found mine!

Iím glad you realize that you will probably need to expand your search beyond Georgia. Make sure you have money in hand and be ready to move as soon as you see a trailer come available. There are other forums in addition to this one, and Facebook groups too, I understand, but donít know anything about those. Trailers seem to pop up on Craigslist a lot also.

Good luck to you and happy camping!

Hi! I'm Anniva

Thank you, Lisa, for your feedback. We're good for the towing capability, as well as the other suggestions you made, etc. Since I'm new to this website, I messaged someone earlier on the site but have not yet rec'd a response. I might have missed a que on procedure, but will wait and see what happens. Thank you again for your help!

Welcome Anniva! I concur with what Lisa has said, so I won't repeat what she noted. Just be ready to pounce when you see what you're looking for as fiberglass campers go quickly! Have fun in your search!
