Greetings,

Does anyone have any specs for the new Rpod 195?

All I have been told is that it has a Walk Around Queen bed and a bigger refrigerator/freezer.

It’s supposed to begin production next Spring.

But I don’t know the specs...

Will it be longer?
Will it be wider?
Will it have Dual Axles?

My wife and I are excited by what we know so far, but we would love to know more,

Not a word. They make an EVO that is a 195. It has a walk around queen, and a no slide floorplan. Little heavier than a Pod, sure you are not tracking that?

It has a slide with the dinette and a rear kitchen.

The basic floor plan was posted on Facebook today.

The EVO has a smaller fridge, but a lot of indoor storage, Walk around queen with storage. They been out a couple years. No slide and what appears to be aluminum siding.

This model is still just on paper, Forest River will update me as it comes along, and hopefully I'll follow the prototype as it's built.

Things I can "semi" confirm.  Still planning to meet that 3500# range, a bit longer, a bit wider.  Forest River themselves don't know a whole lot more than that yet.

That's my concern as well and I tell them that often.  :(

The removal of the 177 from current and future production makes me very sad..
Signature removed, so as not to trigger any non Ford owners, non Irish Setter owners, current R-Pod owners, unhandy or mod negative Pod owners, or single campers of any gender.
