Stopped by the Champlain Valley RV and Camper Show today for a few hours!! Got to wander through some of the new No Boundaries campers and some of the Lance campers, they are very impressive!!
Really gets you thinking!!

It is amazing Leo - I started camping as a child, remember our first camper was a 1959 Ford station wagon, we slept outside:) The family converted a school bus in 1966 and took it to Ontario, great adventure. Since that time I've owned motorhomes, Airstreams , teardrops and a Pod. Many changes, end of the day, I think my 178 is the last RV I will own, I'll continue to mod, if I can continue to update, I'm happy.

I heard one of the Airstreams calling me but was able to resist when I saw the price tag was over 60 grand. We are really happy with the 179 but think we might have one more upgrade in us. Like the No Boundaries 19.5 model, the Lance and 0ne of the Airstreams.

Yeah and it comes with optional canoe/kayak racks on the roof. And the bed facing the right way, along with a bigger refrigerator. A lot of pluses. Still has a decent size and would be easy to tow and maneuver.

Right on that. You could get two 179s, and have enough money left over to buy a tow vehicle.

I agree Leo, I think the NOBO 19.5 may be excellent for our next Alaska trip. I'm looking forward to seeing one.

Same here, the Mrs saw it and I figured she would say she liked the pod better BUT she was sold on it right off. Hoping that they work any bugs out quick! Really thinking about it.
