Well if you are planning to spend a month or more in an area that is in peak season, you probably will need reservations. Those places can get really crowded. It really depends on how you like to travel.

We loved our Casita, but a month long trip was the longest we ever took in it. It was quite clear to me that if we went for longer travel we would need something bigger - especially in case of inclement weather (including wind) you are stuck inside in a pretty small space! Of course my husband is 6'4" so he was a little cramped. Still, we enjoyed the heck out of that trailer - so cleverly compact, so easy to tow and set up, could fit virtually anywhere.

But I have known couples who happily spent 6 months in a Casita. Then they decided to go fulltime and upgraded to a 5th wheel.

Once we went full time we went straight from the Casita to a diesel pusher Class A. Talk about moving from a cabin to a castle! LOL!

Have I mentioned ? Use it to weed out the less desirable RV parks.


Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
