Ditto with calling the LE a lightweight.  It is a lot of great things, but light IMHO it is not.

I'm suspired that the Casita was not on that list, I owned one before we got our Oliver and it was a great trailer. 99% of Casita owner are very happy with there trailers and would buy again if need be. All being said, great value and return on your money.

These articles seem to be reworked industry boilerplate. Not sure Casita is a player in the RV mainstream marketing space. They clearly should have probably been #1, on weight and quality alone v
