It’s official, like many here I am upgrading and adding a larger RV to the stable. I’m keeping the RP 179 and will continue to create video content accordingly to help out those getting into RVs and R-Pods specifically. The new RV will be introduced Sunday night 6/23/19, 7:45 p.m. EDT on the YT channel (link below) with a full walkthrough. ~PP

I can. I can wait a really long time when someone else is spending their own money. LOL

Maybe like a friend of ours got 3 years ago.  It is a triple axle 48 foot 5th wheel with 6 (yes) 6 slides, dry weight of only 19,500 pounds.  A palace on wheels.  Of course he had to upgrade his tow vehicle to a 1 ton 4WD Duramax.  No small investment here!

Nice looking, but too big for our Frontier. Loaded it would exceed the 6,100lb limit. I like the heated, enclosed underbelly. That would definitely be something for which I will look if we upgrade our R-Pod.

Nice looking RV. My youngest son and his wife bought a smaller Bullet last year and really like it. I will admit I sometimes covet the dry bathroom, but for longer trips to the mountains our 2008 Captiva stays home. Ironically, our Rpod 179 has more counter space then the Captiva. Love them both for different reasons and types of trips.

The mountains are calling and we must go...O.D., Keith & Jody

Nice camper, lots of similarities to the 195, but definitely a little more to yours. I have to admit, i love the one switch control of the overhead lights and the big freezer. I brought ice cream and a couple frozen pizzas on our first trip, I think just because I could. I also added the same observation camera as you, I'm very pleased with it. Nice 7 inch screen, and you can add side front, or anywhere you want camera's to it.
