Wolf Pup 17RP

Hey all,

New here in Iowa to the Group. Just bought a 2017 Wolf Pup 17RP, picked it last weekend and camped in the Ozarks. Couple things, the beds and bed frame are junk. I am a big guy, and I broke the frame the first night. Looks like they forgot to put in the braces or just a really crappy design. I managed to reinforce the frame, works good now for a 10:00 pm fix. I also threw out the Full size foam piece of junk and went to Homemakers and bought a fairly good pillow top Full size mattress and stuck it in. I haven't read a lot about guys putting regular mattresses in their units. I found it fit better and was WAAAAY more comfortable. Let me know your thoughts. I am also going this weekend up north and hauling the bike, I have a Yamaha Venture, I know it's going to be tight, but should fit. If anyone has any tips or tricks, let me know. I'm not planning using a wheel chock on the front wheel. Good or bad?

Thanks Scott

The matress in our Pup is garbage. We put a 3" gel topper on it and its much better. But that's the only thing we didnt like. We love our Pup. I'll probably buy a full queen for it soon.

Hi! We have a Greywolf 26RR. We bought a short queen from Sam's club. Sleep like a baby now!
