Below is a comparison chart of the 4 Casita travel trailers:

All Casita travel trailers are available in two models. The Standard model does not include a bathroom whereas the Deluxe models include a bathroom with a separate toilet and shower.

The swivel chairs are located next to a screen picture window which provides a nice little reading area to comfortable retreat. 

As with all Casita models, it comes in a Standard layout which sleeps 4 but has no bathroom, or the Deluxe model that sleeps two and has a spacious bath and shower.

Liberty

The Casita Liberty is another step up in their line of travel trailers. This model has floor plans that are spacious and offer more versatility than the either the Spirit or Freedom above.

Summary

Overall we think the Casita Travel Trailers offer a great value and are perfect for couples. For us we don’t necessarily like the Standard version of each model since it does not have a bathroom. We prefer the Deluxe since it has a spacious shower and toilet. 

The Casita across multiple forums online gets good reviews from owners for quality of construction and company support.
