We plan a trip to Cookeville, TN to see the 19.5, when I saw a plan for the 16.7 I thought the copied a 179 plan. The fridge is another item the wife likes. The NOBO incorporates a lot we on forum have been asking about. Door in the window, 4" rear bumper, Blu Tooth, 16" tires, enclosed belly, etc. If I'm going to trade now is probably the time.

Another one that I like is the Wolf Pup - 16FQ and 16PF.

One negative is a somewhat small gray tank. However, that could be overcome with one of the "blue totes".

It would be interesting to look at it and a No-Bo 19.5 side by side.

I think the folks up in Elkhart better plan on making a bunch of those!

Personally, I find the No-Bo very interesting. One thing I did note, in looking at the online info, is that it seems to have LT (light truck) tires. I noticed this in one of the pictures.

I think FR has a winner in this one.
I agree. I hope a little bit bigger tent is a good thing.

I'm not sure that LT tires are necessarily a good thing. The main thing about ST tires is the stiffer sidewalls, which is also a good argument against a radial tire. This is a good discussion of the distinction between vhicle tires and trailer tires.

I like the NoBos, but I'm not convinced they are the thing for me. I like layout of the 19.5 EXCEPT for the placement of the refer. and the huge amount of space devoted to the bathroom. I keep looking at the NB16.7, but it just looks like an RP179 with a different exterior.

A number of Podders have indeed moved on to something different. I see that as not a "bad" thing. The world turns and things change:

Car - I don't still own/drive the first one ever bought
House - I don't still live in/own the first one
Wife - ......... Maybe we shouldn't go there!

The folks here now are great people and would still be so, if they purchased another camper. Those who have yet to purchase have been (no doubt) influenced by all of you!

So, yes, I think there is room for more than just active/current Pod owners. I also think that most of you agree.

David,

IF I move away from a POD I have no intention of leaving this forum. Best there is for TT owners by far and chuck full of expertise and interesting characters. I have every intention of staying with FR, I think those who have interest in the other TTs like NOBO remember their home boys.
