With another little adventurer due in April, it’s time for us to find Golden Silverwind a new home and hunt down a more spacious travel trailer to fit our growing family. Don’t worry; we won’t be off the road for long.
This 2013 Casita Freedom Deluxe ’17 has journeyed across the United States, trekking into the northern sand dunes of Michigan and out to the coast of California, from Yosemite to the salt flats of Utah, handling it all beautifully. This is no run of the mill camper; each one is custom made to order out of a small, family-owned factory in Texas. Be prepared to be stopped often by strangers; people LOVE asking questions about the Casita.
It tows easily and drives smoothly; sometimes we even forgot it was behind our V-6 tow vehicle. Although we’re selling it with sway bars and a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller included, you’ll hardly need them. And its compact size means you can even pull right up to the In’N’Out whenever you get a craving; no special parking spot needed.
The Casita is fully factory upgraded: vinyl floor, front door with window and inner screen door, electric hitch, 16,000 BTU heater and A/C, 2 propane burner stove, 3 way fridge, and LED lights. The fiberglass shell means no leaking and quite frankly, you won’t find that in most other traditional travel trailers. It’s designed tight and well, meaning you can actually enjoy being on the road.
Post-factory this little Casita has been gussied up with a 40w solar rooftop panel, custom black chip-free paint on the front exterior and propane cover, custom white painted cabinets to brighten the interior, custom black-out and sheer shades on the dinette windows, individual sun-shades on exterior windows, and upgraded rear stabilizer jacks. Ask our Tiny Ass Camper friends (who are rocking the full-time Casita life); you can’t even buy it from the factory with all of these upgrades. It’s almost embarrassing how well-designed and functional our Casita is.
It’s diminutive size makes fitting into awesome campsites a whole lot easier and cheaper. National parks and state parks? No problem. Boondocking? Why not. Packing up a campsite takes very little time, and it hitches up so quickly and easily you can be on your way fast whenever the whim to roam hits you.
It’s the ideal size to travel efficiently while also in comfort. Cook dinner, watch the sunset out the large windows, and even take a hot shower in your own bathroom. The dinette converts quickly to a queen-sized bed when you’re ready to hit the hay. There is even a surprising amount of overhead storage and a fairly spacious closet to hang your clothes.
We switched the side captain’s chairs and small dinette out for a small twin bed (25″x 73″) with a 4″ foam cushion, but we can easily convert it back to the old set-up if white leather swivel chairs and a cozy little cafe table are more your jam.
All interior cabinets were painted white to match the fiberglass and brighten the interior, with a protective poly finish. Even your messy dog can’t mess them up. Windows are sliding, locking, and protected with screens. (Amazing lakefront views not included.)
We’re looking for the ideal new owners to travel far and wide with Golden Silverwind and take it on new adventures. New to traveling? We’ll show you all the ropes on how to hitch it up, tow, and maintain it. Believe me, we want to see this travel trailer in good hands.
