Hello!
My husband and I towed home our   new to us   2016 179 last week. This is our first travel trailer- we named her "Whoa Babe" ....seemed appropiate.... each time my husband drifts over the yellow line while towing I yell ...whoa babe! Needless to say he grew tired of this, so I let him know I was just talking to our new camper  . We are very excited, and thanks to this amazing forum we have already started making a few mods to make our little camper function better for us. We have spent a couple of years day dreaming about owning our own camper, and zero'd in on the RPod a few months back. This community was one of the deciding factors for us. Our first camping trip is this weekend! Thanks y'all for all the tips and tricks. Happy camping!

Enjoy, Enjoy.  A lot of wealth to be mined from the folks on this forum!  A bit jealous here in Northern Michigan, forecast is for 4-5" of new snow tomorrow.  Not to say that we couldn't go podding in this kind of weather, we have, but, will wait until mid-late April for the weather to be a bit nicer for hiking and exploring in the north.

We are toasty, enjoying the wood heat, 78 indoors, 18 outside.  8" of snow so far today, still coming down at a good clip.  Probably no school tomorrow in this area.
