Adventures with Kristin & Mike

UPDATE FRI NOV 6th, 2015: We have an interested party coming to view the trailer on Saturday. -Kristin

Update SAT NOV 7th, 2015: A nice couple from Washington state bought the trailer this morning. We no longer have it. Thanks for your interest. -Kristin

It is with mixed emotions that we have decided to sell our 2015 17 Ft Casita Travel Trailer, Spirit Deluxe model. The Casita is in great condition. Under our ownership, it has no known problems and is ready for you to enjoy.

First, an Explanation for our Readers

I am going to miss this trailer so much! We are selling the Casita for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Mike’s job gets busier and busier all the time. He is struggling to find the proper time to take the Casita on trips. To him, taking the Casita out on the weekends feels like work too.

Secondly, as much as we love the Casita and have valued the time spent in it, we feel that moving forward, a small van might better fit our needs for travel. We are vacationers who take quick, zip around jaunts to explore places on the weekends, and we want to be able to take off at a moment’s notice, without the time and effort it takes to set-up and tear down camp, clean out the black tank, as well as the extra time needed to hitch and unhitch the trailer, etc.

Lastly, we recently moved into a new home, in a new town, and there is not a place to store the trailer on our property. We don’t want the extra cost of having to pay to store it elsewhere, plus the cost of insurance. It all adds up.

The Details for our Interested Buyers

We added these extra features at the factory:

-Slate cushions



-Refrigerator, Vent Fan

-25gal Fresh Water Tank Upgrade

-Outside Shower, Wash Station

-Vinyl Flooring

-Interior LED Lights

-High Lift Suspension Package

-Range Cover

-Sink Cover

-Video Entertainment Package

-Extra Outlet Under Dinette

We never once used the furnace, stove, hot water heater, fresh water tank, or propane tanks. The propane tanks may need to be re-purged due to no use.

Our Casita was equipped with a top of the line Hensley Cub for safe towing. The Hensley system eliminates sway and is said to be one of the safest trailer hitches on the market. In combination with our Honda Ridgeline truck, the Casita was a breeze to tow while on the road. We experienced zero sway and no scary moments while towing. It is true that sometimes, I would momentarily forget the Casita was being towed because it was so easy to pull.

Lastly, we are happy to include all of our RV accessories and manuals with the purchase of the Casita, as we probably won’t be buying another RV until Mike’s work calms down again.

Price Details

We added a $1,834 Hensley Cub hitch, which was wielded onto the trailer. This is included in the discounted price of $18,500 for the Casita. If we cannot sell the Casita for close to the price we’re asking, we may decide to keep it for a couple more years.

    Sorry to hear that, but I certainly understand. Have you posted it on the Casita Owners on Facebook? Casita Forum?

    Good luck with your sale, although you won’t need it.

    1. Thanks Marsha! I feel so sad about it, but we can always get another down the line. I haven’t posted it to those sites. I think I will go and do that now. Thanks for the tips! How’s everything going with you? -Kristin


  2. We sold our 2012 Casita on FiberglassRV.com back in December of 2013. Sold in about 2 weeks. Casita’s are extremely popular and have better resale value than other RVs. Be patient. You might get a few Looky-Lou’s at first like we did, but then a real buyer will seem to popup up when you least expect it. Best of luck.

    1. Thank you John! That helps to know how the process went for you. We’ve had a lot of traffic to the site since yesterday, and so far one inquiry. I should check out fiberglassrv.com as well. I appreciate your tips and info. I hope you’re having a great week! 🙂

    1. Sharron, It’s true, we’ve had so much fun!! 🙂 It’s been a wonderful learning experience as well. I definitely want to get another RV of some sort down the road. I won’t stop blogging; I really enjoy it and I don’t want to lose my contacts on here. I just have to figure out what to write about now.

    In addition to the Classified area of Fiberglass RV, consider posting an ad here — http://www.fiberglass-rv-4sale.com/
    That site is strictly devoted to ads for fiberglass RVs for sale. Your location in Oregon is a plus as you’ve cut down the distance to go get a Casita for the folks out West.

    Still, thanks for sharing the inside looks of it. Never stepped into one myself 🙂

    Well, it seems your Casita sold faster than you expected! My wife and I just returned from a six week western America tour; by that I mean a meandering trip up from southern California, through Oregon, Idaho, Montana, up into Alberta to Dinosaur Provincial Park. The trip taught both of us a lot ourselves and what we want in a travel rig. And that leads to this question: did you advertise your trailer and if so who with? I am exploring ideas to facilitate a more comfortable travel system, one being selling our Casita and moving to a larger trailer. There are issues with that scenario. At any rate, have listed Twinkie early this week.

    1. Hi Alan! I believe we posted it on RV Trader but I can’t recall for sure. It sold very quickly. I would suggest RV Trader and perhaps the Casita forum and/or the fiberglass forums. I bet it will sell very quickly. I miss our Casita. Sometimes I wish we hadn’t sold it after all. Thanks for your comment. 👍😁
