We also went from a Trillium
, to an Rpod, to an even bigger stickie and back to a Trillium
again, so welcome back to the group.
It was nice to be warmly welcomed back at a couple of fibrelgass events we attended this year.
To answer some of the questions about R-pods, we enjoyed the trailer but found it hard for our tow vehicle (a Ford Escape
V6) to tow it as its much higher than a Trillium
and has as much windage as any full size trailer, despite its teardrop shape. We got ours when they first came out in 2009, before there were any models with slide outs. If I was to get one again, I would get one with a slide out, I think. We find that the size of our Trillium 4500 just suits us better. We can tow it with a 4cyl suv instead of a full size pickup. Of course we miss having hot showers, a toilet and a big fridge
and freezer, but we don't miss the gas bills. We didn't find the trailer to be of any better or worse quality than any other. In fact, it was our first new trailer, so we quite enjoyed not having to fix things, compared to our previous and current old trailers.
By the way, there is a also a very active and friendly group of Rpod owners who also organize meets, just as with fibreglass trailers - we are all campers after all. We still keep in touch with a few of the people we met there too.
