Long overdue

How did it get to be June already?

We picked up our Casita Liberty Deluxe travel trailer on 17 April from the Casita factory in Rice, TX. We spent our first night at High View RV park just west of Ennis, TX. The weatherman was predicting severe thunderstorms with large hail. Fortunately, we only experienced an average thunderstorm. The pups were scared, but the Casita never shook or budged. I felt very secure inside during the storm.

We stayed close to the factory just in case there was anything wrong with the trailer, and it’s a good thing we did. It was hot and muggy and we spent our first evening sweating in the trailer with no air conditioning. The fan worked, but the compressor never kicked in. It turned out to be a bad thermostat. Within an hour of turning it in at the factory, we were on the road again to our second destination near Azle TX, the Silver Creek RV Park.

The following morning, we drove up to Haslet TX, to get some modifications (mods) done to the trailer. Little Home On The Road was fantastic, as they installed scissor jacks for stabilization, a shock kit to reduce road vibrations, an indoor light switch for the porch light, and an extra shelf for more counter space. In less than four hours, they were done, and we headed to Weatherford to show off our new home to our daughter and grandsons.

We then traveled back home to Kempner, TX and parked the Casita under our car port next to the house. The following week, we had the Casita’s car port installed, as its permanent base. During that week, I made some towel racks for the bathroom, and added the “shower curtain mod” to create a nice shower area that would not soak the toilet or area behind the toilet.

We began packing for our first extended (5 day) trip to Bandera TX and the Bluebonnet Casita Rally. More on that later!!!!
