Hello and welcome to the forums! I'm also not a rpod owner but did take a peek at them while I was RV shopping. Here's a link
for the rpod forum here on the forum. There seems to be many discussions to select from so hopefully you will find the information you are seeking.
Based on my own experience I would suggest keeping things simple until you determine your camping style. At first I brought anything and everything only to find out that a lot of it went unused.
Also do recommend checking out the various forums here to see what ideas might work for you. I love the "Pimp my R22" & other mods threads.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
