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:
-Refrigerator, Vent Fan
-25gal Fresh Water Tank Upgrade
-Outside Shower, Wash Station
-Interior LED Lights
-High Lift Suspension Package
-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.
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.
