With so much choice in the world of RVs, it can be tough to decide which camper option is right for you. If you love the idea of maximum freedom with a minimal environmental footprint, then an R-Pod might be the perfect fit! As an exclusive R-Pod dealer, South Thompson RV has all of the R-Pod insights and inventory to help you get informed and get on the road.

Big on Luxury, Easy on the Environment

R-Pod is a sub-brand of Forest River, who oversees dozens of popular RV brands across North America. R-Pod is known for “offering affordable luxury at the lowest tow weight in its class” and its unmistakable dome-shaped roof. Don’t let the compact design of R-Pod fool you - each unit comes with a huge list of convenience and comfort features that don’t skimp on luxury! In every R-Pod you’ll enjoy a Bluetooth stereo, pleated nightshades, 3-way refrigerator, solar charging port, aluminum rims and double aluminum steps, 2-burner recessed cooktop, seamless kitchen countertops with undermount stainless steel sink, wet bath, functional organization galore and so much more! R-Pod also offers a host of optional features to further upgrade your camping experience, such as air conditioning units, convection microwave oven, bike carrier and a domed awning with screen cover.

The thoughtful design of these campers ensures that you’ll feel right at home while you travel, even with the whole family on board. You can look forward to a large queen size bed for cozy nights spent under the stars, plus the option to add up to two bunk beds. Whether you’re a retiree looking to enjoy BC camping in the summer and travel south for the winter, or you’ll be taking the entire family on a cross-country adventure with no set end-date, an R-Pod is a perfect travel companion. It’s lightweight design helps you maneuver narrow roads and parking with ease, save on fuel and enjoy big adventures while occupying minimal space. Not to mention that you can use a variety of vehicles to tow an R-Pod and don’t necessarily require a heavy duty pickup truck, further adding to your reduced environmental footprint.

Is an R-Pod Right for Me?

As one of the only exclusive R-Pod dealers in British Columbia, the team here at South Thompson RV believes that R-Pods can offer folks from across Kamloops and the BC Interior the perfect user-friendly RV option.
