New Casita Owner

Hello from Elroy Texas! Proud new owner of a Casita. We donít have a manual to go by, so Iíll have a few questions about the frig, heater, plumbing and cleaning the fiberglass shell. The Casita has been sitting a few years and itís pretty worn from wear and tear. Iím more of a DIY person and have started some modifications already. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

You should be able to find manuals for your appliances by Googling the specific maker and model.
And, under "More" on the top right of this page, you will find "Document Center" where members have uploaded manuals etc.

Ask questions first, then do mods.

Hi, welcome!

The URL above takes you to the Casita Forum, which includes all Casita manuals and instructions. The manual that should have come with your Casita is there along with technical and non-technical discussions. If you donít find what you need, just ask! Members are extremely helpful.

Good luck and happy trails!

Casita travel trailer a-z owner's guide

And, in addition to all the above posts, I have found that the "bible" for most everything Casita is the "CASITA TRAVEL TRAILER A-Z OWNER'S GUIDE".

You can find it here or at Amazon.

I bought my Casita last year and I have found that most everything I need to know is referenced in the guide. If I need more detail, then I dive into,,, or just plain old google.

One more reference: I'm a bit of a tweaker and I found several GREAT mods at Don Dayton's web site complete with step-by-step photos with comments.

Welcome to this FGRV forum! Congratulations on your new-to-you Casita and self-titled DIY project. And when you get that out on the road you'll find a virtually endless possible number of destinations you'd like to at least pass through and see!

Hope to meet you somewhere down the road.
