Subject: R Dome Wanted

I am looking for a used R Dome for my 2016 R-Pod 172.  Any dome from 2012 or newer should fit, my 2016 has keder rails that are 14mm.  Please let me know if you have one you want to get rid of.

Thanks

I just bought a used R-Pod, could let the R-Dome go.  It's in the bag still, we haven't try to set it up.  Our R-Pod is a 179.  We're in Washington state.  More?

Thanks for getting back to me.  Congrats on the new to you pod.  What year is the R-pod and do you know what condition the R-Dome is in or how used it was?

Thanks,

The R-dome of a 179 is to big for a 172, the 179  is 16" longer

The R-Domes are all the same width, so the trailer size does not matter.  The only variance throughout the years is the size of the keder rail (changed in 2012 I believe).

That year will work, let me know the condition it is in and how much you want for it.  Also what part of Washington are you in?

we haven't unrolled it or set it up, but it appears to be in good condition.  I'm not sure what to ask/what it's worth, maybe I'll try to check new cost, and something reasonable based on that?  Or ?  We're in Bellevue, and Seattle every day right now.

+1 to marwayne. The width of the trailer is not important, but the length of the trailer matters. Try it to be sure it fits the way you expect.

Feisty these seem to range used from $250-300 depending on condition.  I'm in California so we would need to figure out shipping as well.  I have family in Spokane, which is why I was asking where you were in WA, but that doesn't help.  Let me know what you come up with, I'm not in a hurry.  The aluminum pole on my current R-Dome snapped cutting through the fabric on our last trip.  We are getting by with duck tape and a spare tent pole, but will need to replace it at some point.

Regarding the size of trailers and R-Domes, this was verified with R-Pod.  The R-dome only comes in one size and that one size fits all trailers.  Only two things have changed on the R-Dome the color and before about 2012 the width of the plastic piece that goes into the keder rail.  Older keder rails were 11mm internal and the new since about 2012 are all 14mm.  On the smaller trailers like my 172 the dome simply covers more of the side wall of the trailers.  I've used an R-Dome for years with our 172 but just had a failure with our dome on our last trip and now need to replace.

I'll offer ours up for $300.  Buyer to verify condition, and pay shipping.  Return OK if buyer is unhappy, but must pay return shipping.  Or drop by and check it out.  We expect to be moving south fairly soon, could meet along the way somewhere.

I have a new, un-used  DOMETIC RV Dome Awning that came with a used 2019 RP-171. The previous owner left it with the trailer. It is available. Contact me if this is what you are interested in it.
