i'm retired, a bit disabled and have had a casita
freedom for a few years. i was pulling it with a silverado 4x4 and never knew it was behind me...and never knew it had brakes
. when i was younger i hauled horses a lot so i am used to brakes
...but the camper was so light
and no one ever mentioned brakes
. anyway, i had to switch to a rav4 6cyl 4wd and i am finding out about the brakes.
i'm wondering if others pull a casita
17' with a rav4 and how they do. i had to take out the captains chairs and table to make room for a special chair. and i plan on traveling light
...with most stuff in the back of the suv. that's better, right?
as you can see i am a newbie to rvs...but i really am close to housebound if i don't have it. and i'm learning. and i don't want to be housebound any sooner than i have to be.
with the truck the driving was the easy part...i'm just hoping not much will change with the rav.
i finally mastered the water hook-up and sewer hose...but there are many bells and whistles i haven't figured out yet.
i basically lived in it for 4-5 months last summer/fall when i realized the house i just bought needed major construction. i have also used it for very long beach days...i just love hearing and smelling and seeing the waves and not having to go anywhere for food etc. everything is with me.
hope to talk to other rav4 owners...thx.
