New Owners of a My Pod Maxx

I've been a lurker on the site for quite awhile. DH and I finally made the leap, well sort of a short hop! We recently (April) purchased a Little Guy My Pod, most folks are not familiar with them. They are a fiberglass teardrop. Basically a bed on wheels in a fiberglass shell. No kitchen, no bath, full-size bed, A/C and entertainment center.

We currently have a 4 cyl Ford Escape and didn't want to purchase anything bigger for now. So our trailer had to be something the Ford could handle since it is not really a tow rated vehicle.

We've had it out for several short trips in preparation for a trip to Yellowstone this summer. All is well, we love it and the pups love it - luckily they are "Pod sized" - a dachshund and Chihuahua so they don't take up "too" much room

Pleased to meet you all, looking forward to getting to know folks.

Hi and welcome to the group.
I take it that this is what you now have?

It looks like you have one of the smallest molded fiberglass rigs ever. I really like the back entrance, very unusual for a teardrop

Interesting, never knew of such. Looks great, just needs a very secure "chin up bar" above the door so you can pull up and swing in.

Yes, there are some special techniques for getting in and out!!

Little Guy also sells a 10x10 or 5x7 screenroom/tent that cinches to the door...provides a little more "living" space. We don't use it for one night stops, but it is nice to have for longer trips where we want a little more space and privacy for dressing etc. and also foul weather protection. It would be a challenge getting in and out in a downpour, keeping the bedding dry would be impossible!!

We like to say it has everything we need and nothing we don't. We're not opposed to using a community bath house as long as it isn't too long of a walk...we'll see how that works at Yellowstone - not sure about the bear situation in the wee hours of the night

I'm hip. I am a "full figured" fellow and drive an older Toyota Corolla. I am quite familiar with special techniques for mounting and dismounting tight conveyances.

Those are really neat looking trailers. You will have a great time with yours.

I was wondering, do the windows open at all? If yours has the blinds, how do they work (being such an unusual shape)?

Hi Mike,

Yes, we have had fun with it already!!

The windows do not open, but the window on the door does open, it has a nice screen and there is a Fantastic Fan which generates a really nice air flow. I'm actually OK with the windows not opening, one less place for water to get in!

If you look at our trailer from the front, with the black tinted oval windows it bears a striking resemblance to a certain creature from Area 51. We have nicknamed it "Roswell". We even found "Little Green Men" and UFO party lights to string around our screen room...and green LED rope lights. Still looking for UFO themed bedding...thought it would be easy to find but not so...guess a side trip to Roswell, NM is needed
