So after looking through all the Rpod floorplans and wishing there were other options I decided to create some additional ones to share with Forest River.  If you like any of these, let Forest River know.

Zubrew, I'd love to see a reworked addition of the 172 or 176 with a dry bath / sofa retro. I like the size of these as they fit into most tent sites. I think it would be great if they squared off the rear so the roof and rear wall are at 90 degrees, and add some shelves. With these campers kinda short on space, just squaring off the rear would add so much useable space. Great plans

mjlrpod, how about this?  I think they could add in some oval shaped TV trays at either end of the sofa that swing in from the sides. Almost like an airline tray but nicer. 


I think the 172 is too narrow for the dry bath without the slide out

Wow, I love that floorplan for the 176. I would buy that for sure. Now if they squared off the top rear, it would be perfect. I think they need to get started on this.

Do you think squaring off the top rear of the camper would have any impact on the gas mileage of the TV?  Is there any other reason for it to be swept back like it is?

My wife would not care to give up either the wardrobe or pantry space so we will stay with the wet bath in our 179. However, for those wanting a dry bath in a layout like the 179, it looks good.

Most every camper on the road has the back squared off, I'm no expert, but I would doubt that would make much difference, if any. I would be willing to give up a mile a gallon to gain all that head room, perhaps and overhead shelf across the back.
