New R-Pod

New to the world of RV'ing. Just bought a R POD 178 & anxiously awaiting our first trip in the early spring. Will try it out in our driveway first. My wife & I have travelled across the country several times on our motorcycles. It is now time to travel across the US in a little comfort with a roof over our heads.

You will love the 178, it is a very popular floorplan amongst our owners! And so glad to have other driveway campers, you'll have to let us know how it goes. At some point in January we have a "driveway camping R-Pod" event of sorts.

Glad to have you and your wife out there Podding with us, I hope we get to meet you at some of the Pod Rallies in the future!

Hi all:
We just bought an RPod 171, towed it home and parked it for the winter. Haven't had a chance to use it yet. Waiting for late spring/summer.
Hit some heavy, heavy head winds for about 80km and really sucked up the gas. Might have to look at a bigger tow vehicle. Currently a 2010 Dodge Journey, 'should' be OK. Can't do much about those head winds though.

Congratulations on your Pod, glad to have you with us.

lorocon158, like you we do a lot of long distance traveling on our bikes, but comfort is not overrated!

2016 Model year Pods will be probably launched and changed over in or just before the 4th quarter of 2015.

As an example my 2011 Rpod was manufactured in the 4th quarter of 2010. It has followed that example each year with Pods.

Thank you

Thank you for the info. I wondered because I read the new 179 was started last January sometime. I was thinking that maybe the 2016 might be this january.do you no if you can change out the TV that comes with the 179 to a larger size like maybe a 25 inch
