  1. See topic in General Discussion - Mod should delete this.
  2. Anyone using the Pro vs Standard version mopeka.com/product-category/sensor/ https://mopeka.com/product-category/sensor/
  3. So that's what it looks like...this is all I saw pulling my Casita over it in late May... 1455955256_BeartoothPass.mov
  4. I saw a post on this, probably Facebook, where they said the materials and production cost precluding them going forward at this time.
  5. Started doing that right after I got on here. Took me a bit to figure out that hitting 'replies' would let me see the latest replies for a topic, vs clicking and scrolling. So much of this stuff is limited by the website solution software they implemented vs just buying forum specific software. Few forum software packages seem to have good search tools. But overall, it's not too bad and easy to read.
  6. A pre-owned Casita 16’ might be doable for you. Still at your vehicle limit, but folks regularly do it with the Subaru, though I wouldn’t. .
  7. Another thread shows photos suggesting they are testing a new Truma.
  8. I have an intense desire to create a spreadsheet... ;-(. I was just looking at a 2016 Elite 1 and started trying to figure out the same thing.
  9. 1200 feet? Did you just bunji cord down? 😉
  10. (Not sure if right topic, but...) I'm leading a two trailer trip, with a couple of friends that have a 23ft Airstream. Mid-May departure. I'm usually solo, so know this will be slower/shorter days. Tentatively looking at 3-4 days in transit, we're leaving from San Antonio making time to the Grand Tetons or a bit south and then slow down a bit. At this point, looks like we'll go to the panhandle (Palo Duro Canyon most likely), then through Denver somehow, heading west after that on I-80 to Rock Springs then north to Grand Tetons. I've done Denver trips a lot of ways, but not needing campsites. I'm thinking about heading north from Palo Duro and catching I-70 east of Denver, then bypassing it to via the NW loop around the city. I've never done that route, as we usually go up via Raton Pass and north. So, all that said, we can either camp south (Pueblo?) of Denver, east (?) of Denver, or push through to somewhere north of Denver, maybe Loveland or Ft. Collins. Anyone done anything east or north of Denver that isn't too far off the Interstate? I've been looking at Compendium, and other apps, but thought I'd see what the hive mind here might suggest. Day 1 - SAT- Canyon/Palo Duro/Amarillo Texas Day 2 - TBD (East of Denver or Ft. Collins area?) Day 3 - TBD - (Either off I 80 somewhere or push up Rock Springs to Boulder/Pinedale WY Day 4 - Arrive Grand Tetons
  11. I'm 6'2" + and used our 2002 Casita 17 without issues until I moved to the Elite II this past spring. The top of my head touched the ceiling carpet, but the reality was that I was rarely standing except when transitioning down the aisle. For a purely weekend/week trip trailer, I don't think it would be an issue. Even with cold weather, you'll either be at the table or sitting/lying on the bed. Guessing showers may not be a big priority for a Fri-Sun trip in the winter, but easy to do sitting down. When we bought our Casita my wife and I were probably 20-30 lbs lighter, I'm 230-240 now, and usually slept wall to wall. Most of my trips in the last few years have been solo, since she still works, and I found sleeping diagonally in the Casita was perfect and gave me a corner backrest for reading. I'd find a Casita Spirit with the bed made up and see how it feels. I really don't think you will regret the ease of use of the Elite 1 given your requirements....now finding/getting one is another story. 😉. The ability to hook-up without a WDH and the maneuverabilty is great. Now, if you could just leave your Elite II at the lake... 😉
  12. Thanks for forwarding this "thread" to me Ralph!

  13. A bit of trivia... I just weighed my like new, over 15 year old, 1000cc Yamaha generator and it was 50+ lbs. Guess I can buy a new Honda 2200 and not feel bad about the weight at 47 lbs. 😉 They really cut the weight in the last 20 years, with 1000cc units now weighing in at 30 lbs. Guessing steel vs aluminum castings.
  14. Thanks, I stayed at Mammoth three years ago in May, in my Casita. This was right after a late season snow storm that delayed arrival by a day from the Grand Tetons. No furnace in the Casita, but beat being in a tent. As noted above, Mammoth does allow day use of generators, <=60 DBs.
