    R pod by forest river

    Yeah we know 1 kid max with ours (no bunk) table folds down into the second bed and we have a permanent queen bed on the other side. With 2 dogs we would be maxed but are fine with that. We actually got ours on sale 8K under MSRP so shopping at the right time helps with any new trailer. I...

    Made the jump!

    I actually do use it, typically I alternate both but I want to be in the practice of both as we have gone a few places and the BAL wouldn't go high enough. This way I'm prepared for potential severe site grades which has happened a few times.

    R pod by forest river

    I actually have the 178 model and it works great! No problems tows easily! It does have electric brakes and is pretty light weight. Ours comes in at 2400lbs no gear and water hooked up. I will say even being that light it is still a gas killer though. Not totally but pretty close. Good...

    Made the jump!

    Thanks all, should be interesting either way. Good pics to come soon this week has just been a rough one. That was my thought on the BAL but once out there I will have some good ole 2x6's as well and feel it out. If not feeling solid enough on the BAL I'll make the switch, the BAL is just so...

    Power trailer mover

    So why the Darkside?

    For us it was a little bit of everything. I'm in the military and we move a lot so this will be beneficial come transfer time. Plus my work takes a big chunk of my free time up more and more so a few more amenities will be nice, as well as making things a bit easier too! One thing to note...

    Made the jump!

    Well we made the jump to the dark side! Still in shock from the decision a bit lol. I've got a few things to figure out. We pretty much got everything we were looking for. Its an R-Pod 177 here is a general manufacture pic of the web below. I've still got a few things to figure out with it...

    Thinking about getting a small TT for the two of us...

    4-Banger Nissan

    Nissan's are good little trucks. Just take your time like everyone else said and build your experience. My old my man was a trucker and I learned a lot from him and he always said "just take your time". Good luck!
