Hello All, Have owned a perfect 2018 190 for 3 or 4 months and really enjoy it a lot, however, although we are an average size couple with 2 small dogs, we find ourselves cramped at times. We need a little more room as we discovered during our recent trip from Alabama to Montana. Can someone, please, suggest a quality replacement trailer with more space. Like the R Pod but for us, we need to go up in size.
Appreciate your responses. Mike

I emphasized your word 'quality' because that means something.

Here is one:


Quality does not come cheap.

Look at Lance . Watch the build process video. They are expensive but I would choose them over airstream.

We have been happy with our FR Sonoma.  Quality seems to be ok, but it is certainly not of the quality level of the Oliver or Lance.  FR makes a bunch of other trailers near the same price point as the r-Pod that all look pretty nice and offer variations depending on your camping preferences.  I really liked the Vista Cruiser series by Gulf Stream.  The problem was that transport to the west made it too complicated, but if you can buy one near Indiana, the center of the travel trailer universe, you can probably get a pretty nice one.

Escape goes to 23ft and well built. http://escapetrailer.com/the-23-escape/
They also do one of the lightest 5th wheels of quality. Custom builds!!

I can't imagine a couple not being happy with a 195, 196, or 192. These are the perfect couples campers.
