Forest River NoBo 10.5 WOW!

https://goo.gl/images/ELHGh7

Forest Rivers newest small camper. NoBo 10.5

Not in a frame but pretty amazing. I think it just came out in the last month or two. Really like the outside kitchen and full queen bed inside plus also less than 2000 pounds!

Yea, there's been 2 or 3 threads here, on this new FR line.

The G-pro/E-pro trailers have been growing here, in popularity.
But the No Bo hasn't.
It's FR trying to capture the younger outdoorsy minimalist demographic, which is very small when it comes to RVs.

Younger outdoorsy who haven't yet had 50+ years of tent camping and decide a tent isn't going to cut it anymore, lol. It's got its place I suppose, definitely roomier than the Teardrops. I haven't seen G or E pros, so no clue but assume they are similar to this one. Cute and all that. Definitely not my particular thing now, but it might have been at one point in my life. When I was one of those young outdoorsy minimalists before it was really a thing, or maybe we just didn't hear about it so much due to lack of social media lol. I prefer a kitchen inside for bad weather and having a bathroom inside even if it is just a glorified portapotty. I guess the appeal of this one is they can tow it with their Subarus and the higher clearance means more out of the way places to take it.

So of course I decided to look at ALL of them before I posted as I noticed the actual walk-in door on one of the photos. There is one with a slideout and walk around queen bed which would have been my main attraction but I am sure the price point on that one, at 20' and an actual "stand in it and walk around" camper under 5000lbs would be more than I cared to deal with.

Price point on the walk around twin bed with the dinette slide MSRP is at $24,500. Unloaded weight is around 4000 so not bad on weight. Still.. it's about $10k over what I paid for my A frame.

They had 3 of the NoBo models at the Columbus show where I bought my A122THESP from and I got the chance to spend some time in each. Wasn't very impressed and thought that they missed a lot of opportunities to really make these campers the adventure units they bill them as. With the A122 right next to the NoBo and at that price point it was an easy decision to go with the A-Frame over the NoBo.

I'm sure the big travel trailer folks look at our little A frames and think the same thing, but...I don't get it. It's the same price as ours, weighs about the same, more or less the same towing profile, but you get so much less. I don't get it. "Cute" only counts for so much!

tear drops have a much better design...especially the kitchen areas in the back...this thing looks like it was thrown together...
