First Time purchasing an RV

Hello everyone
From : The Adirondack State Park

Welcome any and all in-put. We are thinking of purchasing our first RV and the R-Pod 180 has caught our eye for a number of reasons.
Please tell me the pro's and con's of the R-Pod.
Planning to take it X-Country...Yellow Stone etc.

We love our 180. The biggest selling point for me personally, was the dry bath. There's just the two of us, so the small dinette is fine. As with all models, the bed can be an issue with the "back" person having to crawl over (or wake up, or both) the "front" person if they need to get out of bed! We are getting used to that though.

If available in your area, consider the Rockwood Geo Pro or the Flagstaff e-pro. Very similar floor plans to the 180.

Safe and happy travels.

Thank you so much. Just the two of us as well and we love the small dinette AND the dry bath. We know the bed is going to be an issue but we're going to deal with it...too many other plus's to the 180.

A dry bath is one where everything in the bathroom isn't part of the shower.

There is a curtain/door to keep the sink and toilet from getting wet when you shower.

A wet bath you just close the door and everything inside is the shower.

TEST and LOOK at EVERYTHING. Go over it like your buying a regular home. Have any issue fixed before you buy.

The IPod was high on our list when looking to downsize from our 32' Airstream. The deciding factors were the single axle and the bed. Our Coachman 192RBS has a walk around queen with two axles. What we gave up was the dinette having just a sofa. Two ottomans that double for storage are now are tables for eating and resting our feet after a fun day of camping. The two axles are important as a safety factor. The small tires spin at a high speed when traveling and have a tendency to blow, with four tires you remain safe with three still on the road if one goes.
