We have a 152 and are often stopped and asked to give a tour.  Sometimes we are approached by people we have met before that complain that the new floorplans are all much larger and to keep them in mind if/when we are interested in selling....  Many of these people seem to have t@bs, other teardrops, A-liners and even tents that are just tired of the set-up and take-down process but want to stay small and compact.

We have a 178 which is technically 20 feet long but only 17 1/2 feet long in the body.

Ontario Parks takes the view that we are an "under 18 foot" trailer which means that we can also fit in the smaller campsites and enjoy some of the finer views and more private sites.

This was critical to us when we picked our R-Pod as our travel trailer of choice.

The 171, 172, 176, 177, are all still in production, and 15' in the body. While still 18" +/- longer than the 15X series, it's not by much, and I think people want the option of not having to convert the dinette every night. The 15X series all required that, or leaving the bed set up, and having no dinette.. We considered a 151 when they first came out, but the kitchen in the curve was a non-starter for us.
