We picked up our new 195 this week. It is much roomier than expected and the bed was very comfortable. Our Dodge Durango didn’t know that it was towing the r pod!   Our gas mileage dropped but that was expected. We already did our first mod- the dinette cushions are being reupholstered. Our cats, even though they are declawed, would destroy the factory vinyl. WE LOVE IT! we are looking forward to August when we will travel from hot Florida to eastern Canada.

Glad to hear that. My wife really wants to go see one, but they are not very available around here yet. I want to see one before I buy it. I hope you are happy with it and please keep us updated. I saw a video that looked like the pass thru storage compartment was really large. That would be great if it is.

Yes it is very large. I found that all of the storage is amazing. We are going to add a towel rack and shelves in the bathroom. The pantry could easily be modified to have a large hanging space as well as shelves. Our purposes are better suited for just shelves. We like the quality of the unit so far. The AC is a little loud but that is to be expected!

I found a dealer with a 195 on the lot, I will be touring it tomorrow. Although I'm not prepared to buy it yet, I can't wait to see it. I don't want to switch campers mid season, so I'm not buying till fall, or spring.

I guess I was wrong!!! I said i'm not prepared to buy it, but, I lied. I am now the proud owner of an Rpod 195 camper. I was so impressed by it, I felt it was not worth waiting. It seems so much bigger, well, it actually is. I have a 172 with no bump out, so this thing is huge compared to mine. I think the layout is so spacious, and the storage is crazy good. The pass thru is huge, but mine comes with the pull out cook top on one side, so it's not a true pass thru if I leave it in there. It is easily removable so I could only keep it in sometimes. It's so much bigger than my current pass thru that I will probably be fine.

Now it's time to go truck-shopping and then you can change your signature lines both at the same time!
