    Well,

    Wifey & I have owned a few pups but just couldn't resist the "Dark Side" after falling in love with our Rockwood Geo Pro 12SRK. We are keeping it small as the our Geo Pro (His name is Bob after our salesman) is only 12' total length, which is only a bit longer than our Fleetwood Neon [FEN].

    Yeah this I'd exactly what I'm curious about. Never seen one of those. It looks talker than a teardrop, but looks like the same general concept.

    It is , i like it outside as you have room and are not tripping on everything inside. Put a small table up for prep and you have a compeat kitchen.

    Even has a hose & wand that quick connects to the kitchen sink that is used as a outside shower or washing off your stuff!

    Love it. One question. Are those the water tanks under? They look vulnerable to rock damage.

    I really like it. I bet it's light too. As far as the tanks, maybe a diamond plate shield.

    Yes one tank is 20 gallon fresh and other is 6 gallon grey. They are a little exposed but are nicely tucked up to the frame. Would have to be doing some serious rock crawling to get damage as they have a little over 17" of clearance at the low point drain with the off-road package (235/75R15 tires with full size spare, riser/lift kit & step extension).

    This looks like something we'd appreciate. Have you boon-docked with it?

    Not as of yet! Just got it and only taken 2 trips so far to make sure everything works as it should(so far so good!). Should boondock really well as it is way overkill for such a small camper. It has dual 20# propane tanks as well as dual batteries with 100 watt solar and 1000 watt inverter https://wfcoelectronics.com/product/wf-5110r/. Only a 20 gallon water tank but ours does have the optional water purifier system if needed. Might look into a generator if we get serious with off-grid camping.

    Well gee. We BD all the time without a water tank, battery or a generator. We think a heater is plush camping. Seems like you'll do fine.

    Those are pretty cool. First time I have seen a pic of the bottom. Have you considered sealing the exposed OSB with a waterproof paint of some sort?

    Thanks for the reply! I would think that the OSB hopefully already hase some type of treatment? I don't really want to treat the OSB with something that won't let it breath and retain any type moisture which could make for a worse situation. I have been thinking of adding some Coroplast sheet to the underside by making cardboard templates for ease of install. If anyone has any thoughts on the subject feel free to chime in...Thanks

    I would leave it, mine is a 2000 Coleman camper and its still good on the underside. I believe its treated and ment to be left alone.

    That's kinda what I was thinking. We did look at a Jayco 10RK before getting our Geo Pro and they did have the underside covered in sheet coroplast. Ii looked like it did give some protection and made for a cleaner look. Only bad thing is that the Geo Pro has quite a bit of things to work around to install the cloroplast as where the Jayco was pretty much smooth bottom with no obstructions. Really appreciate the feedback...
