Sandy and I purchased a 2010 R-Pod 175 from Jack and Nancy in Tucson, AZ. Jack was kind enough to deliver the unit to our home in Chandler, AZ last week on Thursday. This R-Pod is in better then new shape as Jack performed many of modifications discussed in this Wiki. Upon receipt our first action was to replace the bed. We found a queen size (60" x 80") foam mattress at our local Cosco's called NovaForm, Memory Foam 12". It comes vacuum packed. We just placed it on the bead frame, cut open the sealed bag, and within a couple of minutes the mattress expanded to fill the bed space. No cutting or other action was required. The very next day we took the R-Pod on its maiden voyage to Rancho Sedona RV park in Sedona, AZ. This was a 140 mile trip through some very steep mountains. Our pod towed flawlessly. The tow vehicle is a 2007 V6 4WD Toyota 4Runner. Passed many slower vehicles and achieved around 14 mpg. Needless to say we are pleased with the towing experience. The living experience at our campsite was great. As expected we discovered things we had forgotten to pack, but otherwise it was a most positive experience. Will post pictures on the bed modification and trip experience in the appropriate sections in a couple of days.
We do want to thank the members of the r-pod nation wiki community for all their help and sharing of R-Pod experiences. It made our decision to purchase both easy and a posative experience.
