we took the approach of buying a inexpensive but clean used casita
16, and using it for a couple years.... it took me to a bunch of astronomy campout events, we took it to 4 or so multiday music festivals, up to the eclipse in oregon then on to the olympic peninsula...
and we decided after a couple-3 years it was just a little too small. so we scored a 2nd hand escape
21 ... I almost feel guilty in something so big when I'm solo, but its really nice when its both of us. the bed is 10X more comfortable for the two of us than the Casita
, the big fridge
oven really make it, but its got so much storage....
we're very happy. somewhere in there, we trade dthe Tacoma TRD Offroad 4L V6 4x4 for a F250 7.3 diesel longbed, hah!
