Hi, my name is Steve and I'm new here. As I scrolled through the classified I realized I best start off slow. My wife, Claudia, and I camped for years with our two boys. Now that we have 5 grandkids we're looking into getting out there again. We've always liked the smaller travel trailers and wanted to get something well made. The Airstreams are great but a bit heavy. All roads seem to lead to Oliverville but after I saw the cost of used trailers I decided to check out Casita to start small (just in case). I went on RV Trader and found one about an hour after I joined this forum. Go figure I'd been looking on and off for awhile. We found a used 17foot Liberty for about 14K. Might want to trade up to an Oliver if all goes well. (mostly with the bed). Happy Trails, Steve and Claudia

Hello Steve and Claudia,

Welcome to the forum! We too started out with a smaller trailer in a Airstream Nest but ended up selling it and getting the Oliver II. Sounds like you got a great deal on your Casita and wish you many happy journeys in it.

We have a number of folks here who previously owned Castas. (They're nice trailers, just different.  One of my best camping buddies has had  one,  for the last 15 years.) 

Enjoy your camping experiences,  hang out here, and see what works for you.

I started out with a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe.  Well-made.  Not four seasons and hot in the AZ summer.  I sold it for more than I paid for it.  I bought another trailer, sold it, and now have an Oliver on order.  I'm not sure Olivers are lighter that Airstreams but IMO they are better made and require less maintenance.  Happy camping in the Casita...I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
