Adventures with Kristin & Mike

In 2014, Mike and Kristin purchased a 17 foot Casita Travel Trailer. Kristin wrote regularly about the experience of buying and traveling in the Casita until they sold the trailer in late 2015, after moving from Nevada to a walkable neighborhood in Bend, Oregon. Since then, Kristin shares experiences from trips both in and out of their local area.

Fast forward to 2021, and they’ve put a deposit down on a Bend Teardrop Trailer. It will be ready in August. Stay tuned for many upcoming adventures!

    Hi Kristin! So nice to find your blog..
    I am a single woman who wants to buy the casita and take my 2 dogs on the road to check out a few states out west (considering a big move)
    I guess my question is 1. do you think it is safe by myself? and 2. how do you deal with the whole animals thing? Are they safe in the rv while sightseeing?
    do you need to leave it running? I guess I am nervous too …thank you for any info you can provide..:)
    best Leigh

    1. Hi Leigh,

      Thanks for your questions! I’ll try to answer as best as I can. There are some great websites to check out regarding solo traveling in a Casita. Many people do use the Casitas successfully for solo travel, including many women. I would suggest checking out a really wonderful travel blog by Becky Schade, who travels full-time in her Casita around the country (www.interstellarorchard.com/2014/02/02/all-about-my-casita/). Additionally, a website that I sometimes check out when looking for information on the Casita that has been very helpful is the Casita Club; in fact, they have an entire section on traveling solo in their Casitas (http://www.casitaclub.com/forums/forum/34-solo-casita-travelers/).

      In regards to the animals, we have felt comfortable leaving our two cats in the trailer while we’re away for a few hours, as long as it’s not too hot. We left our air conditioner on inside the trailer, hooked up on shore power because we were worried about them getting hot. It is an honest concern with the pets. Our dog has separation anxiety, so it’s been a bit tricky with him. Tons of people travel successfully with their pets, so it can be done, however, there’s a lot more planning involved to ensure they are safe and comfortable. I have also read about a solo woman who travels in her Casita with her two dogs full time and it seems to work great for her. The website is called “RV Sue and Her Canine Crew” (http://rvsueandcrew.net/). I check out her website from time to time to see what she’s been up to with her dogs. I hope this information helps you!

      We are personally about to embark on a very large road trip adventure, heading out of NV, through CA, and then up to PNW with our three pets in tow, here in a couple weeks. I’ll be writing a lot more about our experiences in the trailer soon. Good luck to you! 🙂 -Kristin
