Featured RV: Forest River R-Pods

1_862_1929737_41947214.jpg;maxwidth=1024;maxheight=1024;mode=cropThe Forest River R-Pod is the perfect vehicle for anyone who wants to camp in style, but doesn’t want to invest in a heavy-duty towing vehicle. Built with the Forest River commitment to quality, the R-pod is loaded with luxury but weighs in at less than 3,000 lbs.

With its unique teardrop shape and quality aluminum frame construction, it’s easy to see why the Forest River R-pod is the top seller in light-weight, under 23-foot travel trailers.

Though small in size, the R-pod is loaded with the luxury appointments, stylish design and quality construction that savvy RV owners expect from Forest River.

R-Pod Exterior

Unlike many small ultra-light trailers, the R-pod is built on a light-weight steel frame with all aluminum frame walls and floors, as well as aluminum framed doors, storage compartment and windows.

1_862_1929737_41947215.jpg;maxwidth=1024;maxheight=1024;mode=cropBlock foam insulation is cut to fit into in the R-pod’s walls then is covered by laminated sidewalls, roof and floors. Black diamond plate at the front is both stylish and functional. The one-piece, seamless fiberglass roof is a signature element of the R-pod’s design construction, making the trailer a snap to tow and easy to maintain.

At only 6.5-feet wide, the wheels of the compact R-pod extended slightly beyond the body for stability and further ease of towing.

Unlike most tiny trailers, the R-pod features generous exterior storage across the model line. Convenient external light above the hitch and connections make setting up safer and easier when you arrive at your site after the sun goes down.

Once you’ve lowered the safe and easy-to-use scissor levelers, set up your choice of either a shade awning or the R-dome – which can be a simple awning or add the screened sides and front to create an outdoor living space.

R-Pod Floor Plans

While many ultra-light, ultra-small trailers are cookie cut into a single floor plan or two, the Forest River R-pod offers 10 different floor plans and a variety of interior finishes and options.

While not for crowds, some R-pod models can be configured to sleep four – and even five — comfortably with ample seating around the dining room table for six.  Most R-pod models come equipped with a compact, convenient and space-efficient wet bath. For a more home-like bathroom, look to the R-pod 180 for a full bath with toilet, separate shower and vanity.

Perfect for couples, the popular R-pod 180 with its full bathroom at the rear, also includes a cozy dinette for two that converts to a grand-child sized bed, a queen bed to the front as well as a half-galley kitchen with built in fridge, convection microwave, and recessed 2-burner stove.  The upgraded hardwood fronted cabinets include full-extension, ball-bearing pull drawers and large overhead storage compartments making room for the necessities of extended road trips.

If family travel is in the cards, the R-pod 178 is a good example of functional design – fitting ample sleeping and gathering room into a comfortable, yet compact space.

At the heart of the R-pod 178 is the half-galley kitchen. To the rear is a comfortable queen bed while the front features a U-shaped dinette that will seat up to six for dinner or a friendly card game. When night comes, the dinette converts to a large sleeping area.  A compact wet bath completes the smart and efficient R-pod 178.

Other clever configurations in the R-pod include family-friendly bunk bed models with smart storage options and the R-pod 179 with its large rear kitchen and open floor plan.

For still more family-friendly camping look to the T-model, featuring an expanded queen tent bed constructed of durable, breathable Aqualon tent material.

For working, living and playing on the road, consider the innovative Forest River R-pods with a garage option.

Garage models feature an outside entertainment center with a standard 24-inch TV and outdoor speakers as well as a free-standing grill and built-in sink with detachable spay hose to clean up when the party winds down.

Keep your outdoor gear organized with the exclusive Versa-Trac sliding storage system that includes removable wire baskets and hooks as well as cargo storage nets and an adjustable hanging pocket organizers.

R-Pod Interiors

Like its bigger cousins in the Forest River family, the R-pod is loaded with luxury unexpected in its size and class.

Each unit comes equipped with an entertainment center, including a flat-screen TV on a flexible arm to match the flexible interiors of the R-pods, as well as a Jensen stereo system.
