They are a very bare bones trailer. The fresh, gray and black are way too small even for a weekend....A few of the shorter ones were 10 fresh 5 black and 9 gray..U have to be kidding

I did hear from a few people this spring they were having trouble with "bowed side walls" on these. I don't know if it was one or two units, but the way the coupled talked it was a larger problem. There was another thread on another RV website stating they were having issues with the tires touching / rubbing the tops of the wheel wells while traveling??

Mines not bare bones I've got 2 way fridge microwave and ac as far as the tanks go 10 gal fresh water with 6 gal water heater 15 on grey and 9 on waste water two of us this week end 4 showers taken and dishes washed then it was full. The black water never did fill all the way If i was going to stay longer then a week end i would get full hook up As far as axle goes the 2011 has plenty of clearance I went on a dirt road fully loaded no problems. And I'm on a forum board for these campers and not one person mentioned about the sides bowing.

Hi!

Which of the trailers do you have?
Is it a Casita? I've heard of older Boler brand fiberglass trailers with the bowed-side problem, but not the Casita...

Francesca

P.S.
I have a 1978Trillium...no bowing there, either!

I've got a sportsman classic 16 bh manufactured by kz nice small tt under 3000 lbs easy to tow it's a bunkhouse with a dinette bed not the most lush or elaborate trailer but it's ok for us. We even have our own forum for these trailers. There are several lengths and floor plans to chose from. This trailer is an entry level and not real expensive.

That's a really nice setup!
plenty of room for the family, and small enough to get in just about anywhere...
