Sold our Casita (17' LD)

Figuring this was the best time to put it on the market, we put the Towster up on CraigsList last Monday and it sold within 5 days to a great couple from the Memphis area. Although we would have liked to have gotten out in it over the spring and summer, we sure didn't want to put it on the market in the fall.

Its a good thing we didn't sell our tent...the Taj Mahal is a nice 10 x 12 Kelty that should prove interesting to the three dogs...who have never tent camped. It might make for a sleepless night if they hear every little scurrying creature at night...TBD.

In the meantime, we continue to refine out options list for the 5.0, and are getting ready to ship our fabric to Rease, et al.

BTW, if you are considering choosing your own fabric, check out Great prices and a wide variety (I have no association with them, but did get a good deal and good service).

Congrats on the sale. Definitely the best time to sell. This is when I sold my old sticky last year, and got what I wanted for it.

No worries about dogs in tents. I have slept hordes with a dog in a tent, tipi, or whatever lots over the last 35 year and never heard a peep outta them while I slept.

Re: Sold our Casita (17' LD)

Congrats on the Casita! They are fine little campers. I put mine out on the street in front of my office on a Sunday AM. When we got back from church, I had 3 messages about it. The first one wanted to come look right away, and bought it right then! So, maybe 5 hours is all it took : - ) Selling a 5th wheel (I am NOT advertising or interested in selling) may be more difficult since you need a mid sized truck.
So what's your options list have on it?
