We are looking to go a bit bigger. The R-pods have some nice layouts. Which model do you have?

I have the 172, dinette in the front and queen bed in the rear. My unit does not have a slide. For my Jeep, I can't go any bigger.

I am 30, my wife is 46. We previously spent 2 years in a '78 Tioga.

We upgraded to a '93 Dutchmen 30FK. Lots of work to do to it, but that's part of the fun, right? :P

The fun of going to school full-time in a town with expensive (by our standards) rent.

We looked at the RKS, but felt at 8400lbs it was too heavy for our F150. Do you have the eco-boost?

8400? Dry weight is 6300 lbs and Im pretty sure I didn't put THAT much cargo in it? no, I just have the V8 engine and it pulls the trailer fine. Folks were skeptical about it, but Jayco and Ford assured me the truck would pull it with no problem and they were right. Ford said my F150 was guaranteed to tow up to 9500 lbs.

Wow, you don't have problems pulling that trailer with. Ford F150? Lol. Everyone thinks mine is too big, and it's smaller than yours! Fords are tough!

Pulling and pulling safe is the question to be answered.
