Does anyone have any specs for the new Rpod 195?

All I have been told is that it has a Walk Around Queen bed and a bigger refrigerator/freezer.

It’s supposed to begin production next Spring.

But I don’t know the specs...

Will it be longer?
Will it be wider?
Will it have Dual Axles?

My wife and I are excited by what we know so far, but we would love to know more,

I’d like to know the answers to those questions as well...

No specs have been released as of right now, it's a concept trailer only.

This is what my wife and I have been looking for. Im 6'2" and hated my feet touching the walls. I can now hang my feet over the edge. Will have to take a good look at 195.

I can't wait to see it at the dealer.  Couches will probably get the first one(s).  If it fits the bill for us, we'll sell our 179, which I love and move into this one.  Otherwise, we'll just be content with our 179.

As I understand it, it will be heavier, but under 3500. I guess that means it's still a single axle. I'ts wider, the wheels won't have fenders. It appears the back side is possibly squared off, not rounded, to allow for overhead shelves.

Just on a site note, since it has a bigger fridge you do not battery option to run the fridge on 12 volt. You only have LP or shore power option.

If you want something done right, do it yourself!

I'm not sold on updating from my 178.  But if I did I am comparing the 195 and the No Bo 19.5.  The 2nd year No Bo seems a better fit for me, mainly because I have tow capability.  Sure there is a niche for the 195, and certainly want to see one when available.  The fridge 2 way is not an issue to me.

The 195 is 20 inches longer and 6 inches wider with a square back.

Took delivery of our 195 just over a week ago and completed a short 3 day shakedown.  Traded in our 182G and do miss the "garage" but love the bigger fridge, 11 foot awning, and rv queen bed.  Combination of solar panel and inverter took care of running the fridge without consuming propane while on the road.  We did add 2nd battery.  Narrower fenders look strange.  No more side marker lights on the fenders...I may add those myself.  Ladder to the roof makes it easy to look at the fir needle collection.  Storage space is huge.  Makes up for clunky profile at the rear.  Word of caution for future 195 owners:  cover panels under the cushions in the little seats can bounce loose and the rear one can (will?) jam underneath when deploying the slideout.  Mine did and nearly ripped out the pantry door frame.  Devil of a time getting it loose and now I have repair job to plan and execute.  Oh, and the fairly roomy dry bath is a very welcome change.  We're towing with a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 and cannot feel any difference in over the road behavior compared to hauling the 182G.  Did add aux mirrors to improve vision around the wider "box".  In total: lovin' every minute of it!  Even during the downpour at Millersylvania SP in WA.  Have fun out there!
