If there's just one long cushion on the side, does that automatically mean bunks, or could it just be a couch? Either way, I'd have to vote luckeeeeeeee!

A novice...

To all of you experienced RVers out there. I am in the process of becoming...or wanting to go on an RV experience. I wanted to ask, how do you manage your mail when out of town for a long time? Is there a way to have your mail delivered/forward? If, so please share, any ideas, information it will be appreciated!

Thank you, and happy travels!

Estella

Estella,
I would suggest that you start your own post about the mail delivery. It's not likely to get many responses buried in another topic thread. Best of luck!

I understand it does make it back heavy probably why they moved it
And now I know why the owner gave me a stabilizer tow bar with it.
Attached is the original owners manual
Interesting… I stand corrected. Never heard of any manufacturer doing it that way from the factory before.

I am concerned that you seem to need the stabilizer bar. A properly balanced trailer should not have any tendency to sway at normal towing speeds. A stabilizer bar is meant as an auxiliary safety device for unusual situation, such as an unexpected strong wind gust or an emergency evasive maneuver.

What's on the tongue of the trailer?

Im not sure I "need" it. But I've driven a trailer once, this one home from seller.
It made me better. Lol

Congrats from another Floridian awaiting p/u on a camper! Looks sweet! Jon Lil Snoozy has the rear wall mounted a/c also. I believe that the rear wall for Snoozy is reinforced. Is your information that it is not?

I meant I'd never heard of a factory through-window AC installation on a traditional single hull molded fiberglass design.

Lil Snoozy is an entirely different hull design. I knew they used a window-type unit, but I don't know the details of how it is installed and reinforced. I'm sure it works fine.

I'm wondering now how long Casita used that approach and whether there were issues that might lead the OP to consider moving it. On the one hand, it has lasted 27 years, so it might be okay to leave it alone ("if it ain't broke…"). On the other hand, it doesn't look like this trailer has been used too much!

If it were my trailer, and especially if my plans included extensive travel or rough back roads, I'd attempt to have a conversation with someone at Casita who has been there a while (like 27 years or more).

I believe they used quite a bit. I know they had two houses one in Texas and one in Florida. In the sun and his wife have used it a lot too. But on further inspection I can see that it's been re-carpeted at some point The color of the carpet in the cabinets are different than the walls. I think this family just took incredibly good care of this camper. They were concerned that it went to a happy home. I'm thinking about installing it in front under the bunk bed but I'm hesitant to lose the storage
