Solar Powered R-pod in the Heart of National Parks Country

  • 2017 R-pod RP179
  • Travel Trailer
  • Sleeps 4
  • Length 20 ft.

This brand-new R-pod is the newest member of our adventure family, and we're thrilled to now have a camper that is perfect for those remote and wild places that we love to visit most! We still love our Winnie and the luxurious accommodations it provides, but there are just some places we can't take her, and this little R-pod is the answer. And best of all, you can un-hitch at base camp and wander to your heart's content.

This camper is really compact at only 20 feet in length, but it is super-roomy with a huge U-shaped dinette that slides-out with the kitchen, a dedicated queen sized bed, and full kitchen and bathroom. The best part about this camper (besides it's striking good looks) is that it's super-light and easy to pull. At only a little over 2700 lbs dry-weight and under 300 lb tongue-weight, this camper can be towed by almost any SUV, as well as many crossovers and minivans!

We are pleased to announce that the solar upgrades to our R-pod are also now complete! In addition to the upgraded batteries that provide about 3x more power than the original battery, we also have 300 watts of solar panels permanently attached to the roof. What this means is that as long as the panels are exposed to the sun (while either camping or driving), the batteries will be recharging automatically and silently. 300 watts is a *lot* of power for a small trailer, so unless you're charging your ebike or a small fleet of drones, then you'll likely have all the power you need and never have to endure the noise and smell (and glaring looks from your neighbors) of running a generator!


- Slide-out kitchen/dining

Kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and cookware. Bedding and bath kits are available on request if you'd rather not bring your own. We also have a small, quiet Honda generator available if you need more power than the batteries can provide.

This trailer has electronic brakes, and a universal brake controller is INCLUDED. That's right, you don't need a brake controller installed in your tow vehicle for our R-pod! For your safety, we also provide an equalizer anti-sway hitch that will fit any standard hitch receiver for an effortless towing experience.

Note that experience towing a trailer is a must, and your vehicle must be setup for towing and have adequate tow capacity. If you're unsure about whether your vehicle is appropriate for towing the R-pod, just send us the make and model of your vehicle and we'll help you find out.

Please note that we expect the camper to be returned in the same condition as when picked-up. This means counters and other surfaces wiped clean, floor swept, and outside washed if excessively dirty.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. We're also happy to suggest places to camp and sites to see if you're not familiar with our great State and areas beyond.

NOTE: Camper will be "winterized" between October 1 and March 1, and only "dry" use will be allowed during these times. This means no use of water, sinks, shower or commode in the camper. Exceptions may be made for experienced guests and travel to warmer climates.

We have a few other kits available for an extra fee:

2 folding camp chairs (we can provide up to two additional chairs at no charge if you have more than 2 in your party, based on availability), 1 outdoor propane grill , 1 large outdoor rug, 2 roasting sticks and a small bundle of firewood.

2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, 2 washcloths, 2 rolls of (Septic Safe) toilet paper. *Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap are provided as a courtesy.

PRICED PER BED. 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, 2 pillow cases, 1 mattress protector, 2 pillows, 2 pillow case protectors, 1 down comforter, 1 duvet cover and 1 extra blanket.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS are available by request. We will to accommodate any request. Please give at least one week notice prior to your departure day and price will be determined.

What a perfect RV rental this Rpod was! The owner's thoughtful additions made for a great family camping trip. A mattress topper made the bed as comfy as sleeping at home. The well-stocked kitchen made for less packing, and a complimentary s'more kit made my daughter's day since ...

About the Owner, Chad & Jenni

We are dad and mom of three boys, 12, 16 and 21. We love living in the Salt Lake Valley, and don't take for granted the fact that we live smack- dab in the middle of National Parks Country! With more than a dozen National Parks within a day's drive, not to mention the numerous State Parks, National Forests and other recreational areas along the way, we are never at a loss for a new adventure. We love to road-trip and live by the Mantra that the journey is half the fun. We have absolutely loved the freedom (and sometimes felt a bit guilty about the comfort ;-) that our Winnie has provided us. Life is busy these days with the new "suburban farm" and renovation project that we have taken on and opportunities to get away are not as numerous as they once were, so we are thrilled with the opportunity to share our beloved "Winnie" with fellow intrepid travelers. Happy Trails!
