Found a 2006 Casita Spirit Deluxe. Thinking About Buying

I don't know a heck of a lot about Casita we have been Motor Homers for a long time and no longer own one, We would like to get back to basic camping and are thinking a pull trailer would be just the thing we are looking for. But like I said I don't know a lot about them. Any advice on what to look for?

It is a 2006 17' Spirit Deluxe Casita for $19,500
Thanks for your time......

Casita has a cult following with very loyal owners. They are small and if that suits your needs, which is good.

They do not have much insulation, but due to their size, they are easily heated and cooled. The baths are small with a wet-bath and the holding tanks are small.

We have looked at them and they seem to be fairly well constructed.

I have been in a few, known a few people that owned them, and thought of buying one myself, but never did. What I can tell you is that the current model is nearly identical to the 2006 model, about the only change is the mount for a flat screen tv now. These things hold their value, though that price is close to retail or at least what retail was a couple of years ago depending on option, they are only sold factory direct from their factory in Texas, and from what I hear have a significant backlog due to the covid camping craze. Though that may be slowing as I see they are offering some fall promo stuff on their web site for new orders (order and get free high lift axle).

where?

Where did you find a Casita at that price?

I saw a 2006 just this past weekend in Wisconsin. Private seller spitballed a price $5k less than that.

So if it's sitting at a dealer, or in Cali, then that would be markup. Or it's been garage stored and in excellent condition.

Saw it on Craigslist here in Cali....... It has sold for the asking price..
