Red face New Member-Decided upon the R-Pod

Hey There,
Thanks for welcoming me. My husband and I are pretty inexperienced trailer people (as in NONE) and so please forgive me since all of this is a bit new. After agonizing for a long time Casita vs R-Pod we settled on the R-Pod for our ultra light we are looking at the RP-177 which is listed at 2,459 for dry weight. our first step is to buy a vehicle that can safely tow our trailer.. I am hoping a Nissan Xterra or Nissan Pathfinder would do the trick. If anyone has any general info on this (I can also search existing threads, BUT it told me I had to do a "welcome message" so here it is! Thanks much. T

While I do *not* get into the weight/towing issues (lordy lordy I stay WAY away from that) LOL I'd like to congratulate you on your RPod! I looked those up online and had NO idea they even have a slider!

So congratulations and welcome to the forum!

Thanks, actually I really liked the Rpod because for me storage is a huge issue.. and while the dinette on that side would be nice, but I plan to use the "bunk bed" area for storage. (I am an artist and hubby is an author, we need to store paint supplies and books) I think this configuration will be ideal

Welcome to the forum. I really like the R-Pods. IMHO whoever designs them puts alot of thought into it to get so many amenities into a trailer of that size.
