May I ask why the 151, is it because your tow vehicle can't pull the weight? If that's the case maybe you might want to think about replacing your tow vehicle with something that can pull more weight? That would broaden the Rpod models you could choose from, like the 177 at only 500 more pounds as jato said. Something to think about..... 

I want the 151 because I like the floor plan, and the weight.  I had a 179 and my tow vehicle struggled in the mountains.  I don't want to change my tow vehicle for something I'll only tow less than 10 times a year.  That wouldn't make sense to me.  I like my Jeep, so I changed campers instead of vehicle.  
I won't go coast to coast because it's not like it's a rare antique car that I have to have, it's just a camper that I like.  :)
I bought a Scamp that I'll be camping in for now.  It's very lightweight, but eventually, I'm hoping to find a 151 within a few hours drive, then I'll sell the Scamp. 
I know the other models are close in weight, but I want the 151 floorplan.  It's more the floorplan than the weight, but the weight is important also in the mountains.
