Why NOBO instead of Geo Pro

Other than a floor plan was there any other reasons you choose a NOBO over a similar Geo Pro? Want to make sure I'm not missing something in my comparisons...

Iím looking for the same answer and am having a hard time finding any comparisons. I love the features and design of the epro and geopro but the utility of the nobo.

I did see a video that said the nobo had a pvc roof that carried a 15 year non pro-rated warranty.

I got this response from Forest River:

The Geo Pro uses Alpha Superflex III roofing material. It is a rubber, vinyl composite that is extremely durable and has a 12 year warranty.


The Geo Pro offers a few things that the NOBO does not. A few of those things are the standard 100W roof solar panel with 1000W inverter, upgraded frameless windows, vacuum bond laminated roof, aluminum framed dinette and bed bases, water filtration systems and the showermiser water conservation system.

I wonder if these features offset those offered by the NOBO. The geopro and epro both offer the off-road package.

Just found out from the geo Pro rep that the epro And geo Pro both come with independent torsion axles also. I donít see much benefit from the NOBO over the other two. In fact I think you get more options with the latter. The water filtration system is really nice

One thing that pushed me towards the No Bo and not the Geo Pro was cargo capacity. The No Bo I chose was the 19.5 and it has a listed carrying capacity of 1300 lbs. The 19' Geo Pros had a capacity around 800 lbs.


I wanted that extra capacity to make sure I didn't overload the trailer.

Good point, I didnít realize the big difference. Is the inside height any different? Does the nobo have a hookup for a backup cam?

I'm not sure about the inside height and whether there is an advantage to one or the other, but the 19.5 has a walk around full queen bed and I think the Geo Pro did not have that option.


I do not think there is a back up camera pre-wiring set up, but I was going to use one of the marker lights to power mine.

We looked at both and decided on the NoBo 19.5 for several reasons including the walk around queen bed in the 19.5. The NoBo 19.5 has significantly more storage and has a larger refrigerator with a separate freezer. NoBo does not have prewiring for a backup camera. We added that on as a dealer installed option.
