So, from my blogs you know we’ve wanted to upgrade from our tent trailer(that we love, but alas has no bathroom) to a hardbody.
So yesterday we decided to go take a look at the 2020 R Pods. They are small and lightweight. The original one we thought we’d be interested the 190, was a little cramped for our style. Then we like the 179 ( it may be a different #)with the rear kitchen, was quite a bit roomier.
But then he showed us the 195 and we were sold. It was perfect. But out the door almost $ 26,000 that includes all the setup, brakes for the Santa Fe, etc. So it was a good price but we weren’t sure or I should say hesitant to commit. We would need to finance some and I think we’re unsure about that.
So although perfect, now isn’t the right time. Or maybe it is.
The other thing is after we got home I looked up towing it with the Santa Fe. And although it has a towing capacity of 5000 lbs, most people advised against it as it will wear the motor and brakes out by stressing it. This R pod came in 3400 lbs, so under but still probably hard on the car.
So that also then got me thinking we’d need to go back to the drawing board about getting used truck. That then increases the cost now considerably. So it is a dilemma.
oh well, we’ll just have to think about it all more.
