SOLD - 1997 Casita 16' Spirit Deluxe - $8000 - Albuquerque, NM


Sadly, our family has outgrown our beloved Casita travel trailer, and it's time for her to find a new owner for her next set of adventures. Weighing less than 2200 pounds dry weight, these marvelous little campers can be pulled by your minivan, SUV, or small pickup truck. This trailer includes:

- 100 watt solar system installed, along with all LED lights to make the camper ready to boondock off-grid
- Rear dinette that seats four, or folds down to sleep two (we usually keep it folded down full time because...)
- ...There's a second side dinette that seats two! (Side dinette also folds down to make a bed for a third person, perfect for a child.)
- 3-way fridge (Propane, 12v, and 110v shore power)
- Two burner propane range stove
- Microwave
- Wet bath with toilet, shower, and sink 
- Air conditioner (This unit does not have a furnace, but we've camped down into the 20s using portable propane heater or an electric space heater)
- New laminate flooring
- 16 gallon fresh water tank
- Hot water heater with six gallon tank and bypass valves for easy winterizing
- 20 gallon gray water tank
- 10 gallon black water tank
- Sweet custom "breakfast Zia" tire cover
- Upgraded door hardware with deadbolt
- Stored under a carport out of the sun
- Tires just a year old
- Upgraded BAL crank-down stabilizer jacks

These campers are highly sought after due to their light weight, bomb-proof molded fiberglass construction, simplicity, and ability to tuck into tight spots. Casita owners are fanatical about their trailers and there is a vibrant online community dedicated to the maintenance, modification, and enjoyment of these unique campers.

Known issues with this trailer:

- The toilet inlet valve has a slow leak causing some puddling behind the toilet, especially when under city water pressure. Since the entire bathroom is watertight, I've never bothered to fix it. If you're handy you could probably knock out a repair in an afternoon.
- The microwave cabinet hinges are bent and require repair or replacement.
- Air conditioner fan knob stuck on high. Hasn't been an issue since that's where it usually needs to be if you're using the A/C. A/C cover has slight heat warping.
- Other minor cosmetic blemishes typical of the trailer's age (cracked clearcoat, faded decals, etc.)
