This morning we successfully stashed our little project at the parents-in-laws' place, where she'll rest until we get our house sold and find another place to live. We were not surprised, and you won't be either, to know that a 1999 Chevrolet Tracker is not a suitable tow vehicle. We were able to tow the trailer and all her bits with no problems, but at highway speed or on anything but a flat road we wouldn't have nearly enough power. We have a lot of other stuff on our to-do list before we get to purchasing a tow vehicle, though!


  1. Hi there, I am also in the austin area and looking to start a possible renovation on a casita I have found but haven't purchased yet. Your blog has been helpful and wonder if you have any further information about completing y'all's casita.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Christina! I apologize for not responding sooner! Life kind of got in the way and our renovation project stalled. We relocated twice in a six-month period and had to move our Casita to storage while we got ourselves together. However, we're going to move it home this weekend. We'll be working on a shoestring so the reno will be slow, but we should have some progress to report soon!
