Snooping entire thread and ran across your old post. Do you still love your Rpod? I've had the 180 at the top of my possibles-list and plan to buy next year. As a tent camper, just gathering info on what I have to research, learning more than I ever thought I'd want to know about weight distribution hitches, air springs, brake controllers and such! lolI have been pulling my RPod 178 for the third season now. Lots of hills around Utah. I typically spend time in a gear lower than normal (MT). Only sees 6th on level or downhill with no headwind at all. At least I am not in the right hand lane with the semis going up the local hill from Salt Lake to Park City.
Tows well with an Equalizer hitch. Trailer is about 2800 lbs dry. It can carry 36 gallons of water and 30 gal. each for Grey and Black water.
Love the FJ, Love the Rpod.
i would not recommend doing this set up again; unfortunately there;s another decision maker involved, and she pays half the payments on both, and called final decision on getting this trailer. My plan B has been if it doesnt work out, we just spend $8 to $10k on an older Silverado 3/4 ton . which of course defeats the purpose of towing the FJ, of unhooking when you get there, and then hitting smaller /rougher roads. i found a great couple doing a you tube channel Geo Pro Adventurers, retired pilot and flight attendant wife, with the 19FBS, towed by a Jeep 4 dr SUV, but having a higher weight capability.Thanks for the image. I have a 2012 FJ and have been looking at the GeoPro G19FD. So I have to ask how has the towing experience been so far? Are you using an anti-sway WDH?
I'm not saying it's an Airstream, but here's a start differentiating the years. 1969-1974 based on the partial view of the taillight?
I lived in a Boles Aero in Riverton when I attended CWC back in the day. It was a little longer than this and sucked to live in but I saved some coin in the process. I think I got $300 when I sold it, same as the buying price. At least it had working septic and a shower.

We often get asked what the best year of Airstream is to buy. There’s no obvious answer and it really comes down to what unit you can find that’s in good condition at a price you’re willing to pay. Unless, of course, you have a lot of time to wait for the perfect Airstream to ... Read more...mavistheairstream.com
