I was looking at an Rpod myself last year. Since it is just my wife and I and the kids have flown the nest. They look nice and cozy and easy on gas. But we bought a 2013 Salem Cruise Lite 24 foot instead. Our last trailer was 31 foot so we thought a Tab or Rpod might be overkill as far as downsizing.

The r pod is something else we are looking at. We've got a 4500 limit on our SUV but want to stay way under that. We are going to get a large tent and the tent attachment for the T@b so we have enough room.

In a few years when we Are certain of the class a we want we will tow it for our teenager

As far as price, I think their a lot of $$ for the square footage you get. My 25' hybrid was a little over $16k (delivered) for 3 times the floorspace and storage. Last weekend a talked to a owner of a Honda Pilot (4500 towing cap.) who had a smaller Jayco tt. In was in the same boat with what the Honda could tow.

They're cute until you are cooped up in one for a rainy day or days!

I agree....

That is why I advocate for a unit with a slide. We have a fair sized couch and a huge pit dinette. So on days where your trapped indoors, I'll read or watch a DVD on the couch and the kid and wife will play their I-pad games.

X3. If you see one at a dealership, both of you go in, close the door and pretend it is raining and stay inside for an hour, ok 1/2 hr should do it. We had a gorgeous little 13ft that had all the options of the bigger trailers except a permanent bed. It was great in good weather when you are out all day, but bad weather, ugh..we've up sized to an 18ft with a fixed bed and large u shaped dinette, much better for those rainy days when you stay in and play cards and watch tv. And you will have bad weather.

The T@B was one of the first ones I looked at a few years ago when I first got the little house on wheels bug.

I have a 14 ft that I picked over a T@B. It was 9k and bought new.

DH can stand up in it. Being squared off rather than rounded may lose us some miles per gallon, but it seemed far more roomy than the T@B. We keep the dinette in bed mode with a 54"x80" memory foam mattress over the seat cushions.

It seems to have far more storage than the T@B and and enclosed toilet and shower room. What really sold us was the bigger open floor plan. There is no problem with one person standing at the sink and the other person getting into the bed, out the door, or into the bathroom.

If it is raining, I am in there reading while DH takes a nap. Another thing that works well for us is bringing along an instant set up four person tent for me relax in if DH is in the trailer. Nearly every place we camp lets us have both a tent and a trailer on the campsite.

The T@B is a great quality trailer. An Rpod is not even in the same league. Quality costs money.

An added benefit is the folks at Little Guy are great to work with and stand behind their product. FR could care less about their customers after the check clears.
