New here - researching prior to purchase

Hello all. Chris from Indianapolis here.

We have been camper shopping for a couple of months and, through research, I keep ending up here via figured I'd join!

We currently have a 2009 Jayco's been great, but we are ready for something hard-sided and more comfortable. The popup is plenty big (just two of us), but the floorplan has very little storage and we are ready to not be in a tent on wheels.

We have been attracted to the Geo-pro/E-pro lineup and have found a number of Flagstaff E-Pro 17RK models left over (2018) that are greatly reduced in price (basically at dealer invoice). Apparently this floorplan is being discontinued, likely due to the fact that it has a wet-bath. We actually like this feature because we will probably never (or not very often) use the toilet/shower....we camp in state parks usually where there are facilities.

So anyway, just here to learn.

If anyone has any input on geo-pro/e-pro quality, issues, etc, we'd be interested to hear from you. Also, we'd be interested in hearing how folks like/dislike their 17RK models and why.

Thanks all!

Welcome to the forum from MN. Can't help with the Epro Geopro discussion, we bought our first TT in Oct 2017 and ended up w/ a Grey Wolf 23MK (rear living couples camper, but bigger than what you are looking at). We camp almost exclusively in state parks, put a hanging clothes rod in the shower , but we do use the toilet in the camper. Anyway, have fun with the selection process and good luck.

Welcome to the forum from central Florida.

Iím surprised that there are no E-Pro folks responding to your inquiry. Maybe if you change your topic from Inquiry before purchase to include E-Pro more members who have them will notice...

The members on this site are very helpful and we are glad to have you..

Welcome from AZ to here, even if there....LOL.

We made a big jump from our very long-term pop up to a 5th wheel. Loving the room and comfort. But, we retired and tend to camp for several days at a spot to take in the sights, and travel/towing is so much easier with less stress. We do miss getting into the smaller sites or tighter places when boondocking.

Just something to consider. we moved from a very large popup to a hard side. we loved that the popup you could open all of the tent ends and have a nice breeze come through. harder to do with a hard side. we ended up with a small toy hauler. we got the 17RP with the screen that comes down and covers the ramp door. when nice out, we can open it up, wen its hot and humid, we close it and its so nice! its in the size you are looking at, right around 21 feet from bumper to hitch. light and easy to tow!
