Casita Travel Trailers – Review of Model Lineup

Casita Travel Trailers is a manufacturer of all-fiberglass lightweight travel trailers. They have been manufacturing travel trailers in Rice, TX, since 1983.

This post will look at their four models, including features, options, and specifications.

Model Lineup

Casita Trailers makes four models of all-fiberglass campers. They are the following:

  • The Spirit
  • The Freedom
  • The Liberty
  • The Independence

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 Casita Spirit is an excellent lightweight travel trailer for families or couples. It is designed with two distinct sleeping areas that can be converted into dinettes. The two dinettes provide ample and comfortable seating for up to 6 people.

If you like, leave the rear dinette in its double bed position permanently.  The Spirit is available in 16-foot and 17-foot models for both the Standard and Deluxe. The Standard version has no bathroom and can sleep 6. The Deluxe version has a bathroom and shower and can comfortably sleep 3-4.

Freedom

Nest up in the Casita travel trailer line-up is the Freedom. The Casita Freedom offers a double bed that converts to extra seating or dining for 4.

You also get upholstered swivel captain chairs. The swivel chairs are next to a screen picture window, providing a nice little reading area for a comfortable retreat. 

As with all Casita models, it comes in a Standard layout that sleeps four 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 spacious floor plans that offer more versatility than the Spirit or Freedom above.

The Liberty has two dining areas that can be converted to a double bed, two small single beds or a spacious king-size bed.

Like all Casita travel trailers, it is an excellent model for couples. The standard model has no bathroom and can sleep four, while the Deluxe model has a bathroom and can sleep two.

Independence

The Independence is the last model in the Casita lineup. The Independence offers two permanent twin beds.

This allows a couple to easily access the kitchen and bathroom without disturbing their partner. There is plenty of under-bed storage, and you also get 3 picture windows.

The windows are screened and operable, allowing for cross ventilation, lots of natural light, and a great scenic view of your surroundings.

Like all the other Casita travel trailers, it is available with or without a bathroom. Unlike the other models that come in 16 or 17 feet, the Independence is only available as a 17-footer.

Summary

Overall we think the Casita Travel Trailers offer a great value and are perfect for couples. 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.

  1. im interested in the freedom 17 foot deluxe. what is the price range ? is there solar panels ? TV ? fridge or cooler

    • Hi Bruce, on RV Trader a 2018 Freedom Deluxe is selling for $19,500. According to Casita the base price starts at $18,000 and goes up from there depending on your options. I believe there is no solar panel however they can be added as an option by the dealer. The Deluxe does come with a fridge an microwave, the TV is optional. You can see all the features here. Thanks
