stellaandspike,
You are right about the mattress. We just bought this Clipper 17FQ and we just knew that the mattress would be the first thing we had to replace but it is going to stay. It is a pretty nice sleeper!

We looked at both the earlier 2016s and the later version. Weren't nuts about the pattern of the cushions on the later ones. Should have just switched the damn cushions. But, got a good deal and love it. Got a foam topper for the mattress and a nicely cushioned mattress pad. Not bad, but on my list for replacement next year.

When we bought ours part of the deal was they swap the mattress from our trade-in... we had just bought a really nice mattress and we were not letting it go. It was the only thing in that R-Pod that did not give trouble.

As for the lights I fitted push buttons so it is easier to turn the stupid lights on and off. Such a dumb design IMHO.

Ky-N,
You must have had a lot of problems with your R-Pod? We thought about an R-Pod but never did go look at them. We really like this Clipper 17FQ.

Let me name a few:
1. Refrigerator would not cool no matter what.
2. Water heater would fail to ignite then it would go boom when it finally did light, it blew in my face is how we discovered it was doing it. Used it only on electric after that.
3. AC cooled sometimes, sometimes not. Never could figure out why although it could have been the breaker.
4. Power panel breakers failing one at a time. Fix one think all was good and then another would fail. Two of which were good ole double pole style of breaker that could not be found since one side was 30 amp and the other 20 amp. Ended up making my own. That was a fun thing to do 3000 miles from home with nothing but a few hand tools in 103 degree heat.
5. And then the assorted little nit pickin issues that never seemed to end.

Yeah we had problems that went away when it did as soon as we got back from our trip to Yellowstone last year.

For just SWMBO, our 4 footed fur faced child and myself, the 17FQ is just a much better in layout, storage space and most of all the bed and bath you can actually get in and out of.
