Most every camper on the road has the back squared off, I'm no expert, but I would doubt that would make much difference, if any. I would be willing to give up a mile a gallon to gain all that head room, perhaps and overhead shelf across the back.

So there are plenty of options for you, aren't there.  You can easily get one like most of the campers on the road, and us Pod fanciers can have pods.

The sofa wouldn't work in the 179 floor plan because the bench of the dinette is the bottom of the slide. A lot of people have put an aftermarket jackknife sofa on that bench; a factory option for one would be nice.

I thought this was a "WISH list" thread. I guess your wishes have to be approved by others? Sorry i'll try not to rudely interrupt your day.

Some of us like what we have because they are not like all the others.  If you want to be like all the rest you have that option.  As pointed out they are all over the place.  You don't need permission from me or anyone else.  Get one.

You stuck your nose into this for no reason. You're allowed your opinion, BUT , so am I. ESPECIALLY in the "wish list" section. You seem to think your opinion is the only valid opinion. I would ask admin tells one of us, or both, to shut up before it gets worse. I did absolutely nothing wrong here, but I won't be badgered.

As do tractor trailers, ever get up close behind a big rig or watch NASCAR, not quite convinced a squared off back would reduce MPG. It does make it look more like a teardrop, but teardrops are much lower in profile, compared to the TV.

The 179 and the 180 (probably the 189 and 190, not sure what they look like yet) have a much smaller rounded back end. Some call them the " big butts".  It's a tight radius that begins more than half way up the wall, versus the 171,172,176,177,178 having a continuous slope for almost the entire rear wall. (i believe, all of these have the same rear slope).

Thinking about it, cabinets above the kitchen counter in the 179 (possible only if the back were squared off) would be nice. Another benefit would be that the window would be on a flat, not a curved surface, and thus less likely to leak.

No one is badgering you.  I just pointed out the obvious.  You are the one getting nasty.  Don't worry.  I won't hurt your feelings any  more.

+1 Stephen, and in the 178s (and others) we could have storage over queen bed vice all of us making racks with limited heights:) Think how beneficial a row of cupboards could be. Not sure why the models (that do) other than a 179 even have a rear window.
