Sorry Ken, but I've owned Casita's since the early 2000's, never bought a new one, so always have searched the used markets, and have actually owned 13' Bolers, a '96 I believe it was, 16', and since then two 17's. And, here's an add for a '94 16': 1994 16' Casita Travel Trailer | Houston, TX | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

Never seen, or heard of a 15' Casita, of any year model. Have not even been able to find one doing a search on Google.

Was it possibly a Scamp, Boler, U-Haul, or Trillium?

OK, I looked back and found some paper work. It was a 16. So you are correct. However you are still wrong for bothering to bring it up in the first place. So there!!!

OK Ken, I'll admit I was wrong for being right!

When you heat a 13' Casita, you can stretch it to 15' and Ken probably had one of those.

No, but you can get one by stopping too quickly when towing a 16'.

If you heat a Casita, you get a pile of melted plastic. It looks kinda like a giant marshmallow that got over roasted.

Watching MNF last night, the P-finder ad ran a few times.

I mentioned to the DW that I had started a thread here commentating on the perceived poor hitch set-up.

Her comment after watching…."what make's you think it's real?"
The salient observation being the magical appearance of the hitch ball below the rear bumper.

Consider….90% of the imaging is CGI.
Could it be that there is no Airstream being towed at all?

It appears the Airstream is in tow as shown here (no smoke and mirrors).

There does not seem to be any WDH as far as we can see.

The back of the Pathfinder is sitting a little low on the back indicating the presents of tongue weight. It could be as little as 500lbs.

Considering the low rate of speed it seems reasonable as far as the short vid is concerned.

Yes...but this Nissan ad is much easier to watch.

Quite a display of muscle control. That women has a lucrative career as a stripper ahead of her. By the time it was over, I forgot what they were selling.

Yup, but way too much bouncing and needs sway control.

I saw that once on Bourbon street but with tassels. Was much younger then so it had a greater effect to want to buy the product

Not to defend the hitch setup, but how many of those questioning the capability of these new CUV's have actually towed with one?

A few weeks ago I test towed our '69 Overlander about 70 miles with a 2011 Ford Explorer. I took it on a varied loop including 2-lane with some steeper hills and 4 lane running 70 mph. The vehicle I tested was FWD, equipped with the factory tow package and rated for 5000 lbs.

Surprisingly, the towing performance wasn't dramatically different than my 5.3L Silverado with 3.73's. I used my Reese Dual Cam for the test tow and didn't note any control issues despite wind gusts around 25 mph. The test vehicle wasn't equipped with a brake controller and had no trouble stopping the trailer.
