Pet peeves with Rpod's only

What part of your Rpod makes you think “Who ever designed this thing has never spent a night in a trailer?”
Please stay on topic.
I will start,
1. On a 19/189, Having to dismantle the bed to access water pump and water heater for PM or winterizing.

#1 pet peeve...

People who buy an extremely compact trailer complaining about how their trailer don't have enough space to make them happy.

Doesn't sound like the OP was complaining about the size of his TT but about the poor thought that goes into assembly as far as locations of pumps , water heater , etc . all it would taker for manufactures to put things in in a more functional way . but no they just stick them where they fit

I said nothing about the size. Do you have anything to add or actually relevant on topic to the tread?

Are we sure he was speaking of the OP? One could read it more than one way. YMMV


My pet peeve...

Not having enough time, money and cooperation to get more camping done!

Sure. Just as soon as you actually ask a question...

But let me ask you... What exactly are you proposing the factory (or engineers) do to remedy your issue?

Not just RPOD

It is indeed a common issue with all RV manufacturers as well as RV Dealers (e.g., guys setting up hitches have never towed). On my Wildwood you couldn't swing open the door under the bathroom sink without lifting the toilet seat. Just a few minutes to flip the door to swing the opposite direction was the solution. OK - so they don't even need to spend a night in a trailer, just need to try to use all the items.

Tim and Awchief,

Can I suggest we just take it down a little bit and just have fun with the answers and not open a debate please.

The question Awchief asked was "What part of your Rpod makes you think Who ever designed this thing has never spent a night in a trailer?'"

By way of an answer, after spending the night in my buddies, I was surprised by how far the roof slopes on the inside. I thought that was odd.

RV related pet peeves? I guess it would have to do with the lack of consumer protection that is currently available in the automotive industry. Things like real world warranties, dealer warranty service anywhere, Monroney stickers, Lemon Laws and online research of invoice pricing.
RV sales is like what car sales used to be 60 years ago.

OK, the site team is going to interject here. We changed the title name to more accurately reflect the intent of the OP as he stated in his opening post....and that is pertaining to Rpod's only.

Since that has been clarified, from this point forward...We are not going to allow what could be considered trolling posts from any who may possibly be just trying to cause strife. If you don't have something to say about frustrations with an Rpod, then this needs to be a read only thread for you.
