Hi, Bill, I was literally new to camping three years ago when I bought a Casita
17’ and began full-timing. The biggest mistake I believe I made was to zoom across country. I should have spent a week at each stop to learn how to camp, how to cook, and how to stock and arrange stuff. I wish I had practiced hitching and unhitching, backing up, and the hundred other things unique to camping. By hurrying, I made camping a chore, when it’s now blissful. Have fun! Go camping.
