What if you could experience first-class travel on the road, for less?

While many outdoor enthusiasts dream of owning an RV, not all of us follow through with our intent to buy. Just like a real house, it’s true that the cost of ownership comes at a price. However, camping in an RV is actually an achievable goal for everybody, thanks to the R-pod travel trailer.

No longer just for families or retired couples, travel trailers are a popular hit with younger crowds who flock to campgrounds all year round in search of fun and adventure. The R-pod is what affordable luxury looks like with the lowest tow weight in its class.

What Makes the R-Pod So Special?

Class A luxury motorhomes are packed full of amenities and features that make your RV feel like a home-away-from-home. It’s not uncommon to find fully-furnished kitchenettes, bathrooms, living rooms and bedrooms that boast all the latest technology and design trends. However, Class A’s are significantly higher in price. What if you could have a luxury experience at half the cost?

The R-pod is a cozy and compact travel trailer that, from the outside, resembles a stylized pod (hence the name). This ultra-lite travel trailer comes in nine unique floor plans that give you plenty of options. A dinette and bathroom come standard on all plans, but you can customize between a queen-sized bed or bunk beds, and have the choice of adding a shower to the bathroom as well as a pantry for the kitchenette. One of the most exciting models is the R-pod garage model that features a standard outdoor pop-up entertainment centre. Each garage model features a 24” LED TV, two marine grade speakers, and a standing gas grill. Garage models are also equipped with the exclusive Versa-Trac sliding storage system that features removable baskets and hooks. Plus, there’s even a built-in sink with a sprayer and a metal countertop, so you can have one of the best BBQ’s and bring the kitchen right outside!

Your Home Away From Home

Although it’s classified as a travel trailer, the R-pod resembles a luxury motorhome more so than a typical trailer that you hitch and tow. All the appliances you need, like a three-way refrigerator, two-burner cooktop, full bath, and much more, make for a comfortable trip. Plus, there are plenty of optional features or trim packages you can purchase with your R-pod to transform it into a custom camping vehicle that’s all your own.
