I just stopped by Country Camper's of Lake Mills, WI. They have 6!!! R-Pods in stock starting in the $10,000.00 range. They told me the order out time might get kind of long because of there Popularity. Great little trailer at a great price. I love the 172 for me & the kids!! You can visit them at www.countrycampers.com

Just put a downpmt on a RP-151 at Country Roads south of Winston Salem, NC.
After having a popup, a 25' travel trailer, another popup, and ultralight tent and hammock camping on the AT (carrying less than 25# on my back), I am excited about the promise of the R-Pod. Light weight, more environmentally friendly, fewer towing hassles, you can literally push it around by your lonesome....
Will be blogging and posting pics as soon as I take delivery.
Talydale's Victor Charles (our Lakeland Terrier) will provide color commentary as well...
See the link below...

TOOK DELIVERY of RP-151 yesterday. I was delighted with how it towed which has been the biggest hassle of all of the non-backpacking camping to date. It was really narrow...got some jaw-dropping looks going down I-40. I am going to hit the rack in there tonight...another delight was that we have a driveway with a 30+ degree incline, narrow passage around house to level parking pad...we traversed the bugger first time no issue. Also, went to Northern Tool and bought a ball-dolly and were able to maneuver it into the perfect parking position. So far so good! PS - dealer did a very good job of prep, hookup and orientation. Again, so far so good!

Tango,
Congrats on the new R-pod rp-151. I like that floorplan. You and Victor Charles have a nice Nighty first Night.


Please post some pics. We'd like to see it....

Saw the R-pod 151 at the Montgomery RV show this past weekend. I really like that thing! If I were a lone camper, or we didn't camp with friends a lot of the tim I think it's something we would look at the next time we are in the market. But maybe the R-172 modelwith the queen bed.

Towing an "R Pod"

Hello:

I too am interested in the "R pods". I'd like to hear from folks to see if they believe it would be practical (and safe) to tow the larger R Pod (approx 3000#) with a 2 wheel drive s-10 blazer (4.3 v6 w/ trans cooler & shift kit).

Could this be a case of the tail wagging the dog? Would side cross wind be a problem? I believe the electric brakes on the R pod would be a great asset. Any experience or advice would be appreciated.

Happy camping!

M&M
