R-Pod 172

Things we Love:
1.Size & Weight...our Jeep can pull it!
2. Tank sizes for a small camper...35 gallons for all.
3. It is impossible to find in a camper this size.
4. It has bathroom/shower/fridge/air/heat/tv.
5. Bunk beds are huge...an adult can sleep well in one of these.
6. Awning/screen room...gives you much needed space.
7. I can power it using a 2000W generator.
 
 
I'll post some more pics soon.

I just wanted to add...We purchased our R-Pod from Couch's RV Nation in Hamilton, Ohio. I drove to Ohio from Phoenix, AZ because they had the best prices on R-Pods. Buying from them really saved me thousands of dollars. Check out their website..http://www.couchsrvnation.com
 
I would buy from them again and most likely will in the future.

We recently purchased our new R-Pod from Country Campers in Lake Mills, WI. There price was only a few hundred dollars more than the dealer in Ohio.  They are also located less than an hour from my house if I ever need service.  With this much stuff on a new trailer something is bound to need service.

That's cool...I wish I could have purchased ours here in Phoenix. Have you had a chance to take yours out yet? I slept in ours on the way back from Ohio. Our first family outing will be in a couple of weeks.

I am considering the purchase of a 172.  Did you pay the price on the web site ($11,995)?  Any room to negotiate?  Thanks.

We ordered a 171 for our Dealer Stoltzfus RV's in Adamstown Pa and paid pretty close to what you are seeing on Ebaymotors.com  The nice part is I do not need to travel so the few bucks more ($138) was well worth it.  We also added a few other options and picked our Fabric so the wife is happy.

Yeah I tried to get a rpod in AZ but none of the forest river dealers carried them and nobody would order one for me. I guess the rpod is actually under the Surveyor series and the dealer has to be a FR Surveyor dealer in order for them to be able to order...at least that's what I got out of it.

That's interesting.. I know the guy at RV Nation told me that they were built in the same factory as the surveyor - that does not mean you have limited service- I asked and ANY forest river dealer can do service work on the r-pod not just ones that sell it.
