We went from an 2009 Aliner Scout to a 2014 RPod 177. Loved our Aliner, it was a hard side tent on wheels and met our needs perfectly, until I spent ALL camping season in a walking cast.... Hubby surprised me last year with the 177 and I am officially spoiled and totally happy with it! The Aliner was a breeze to tow, could forget it was back there, set up in just minutes and kept us dry and toasty. The 177 tows very well behind our F150 (yes, we've been told that's overkill), sets up in just minutes, AND has a potty! Okay, you clomp-clomp-clomp to the bath house in the middle of the night and see if you don't think that's a luxury! We love being outside, so for the most part we still cook, eat and clean up in a dish pan outside. But I have to admit it's been very nice, on the occasions we've been confined to quarters by weather, to have 'facilities' and running water inside. In a nut shell, we're very happy with the RPod and glad we 'moved up'.
