My wife and I travel with our 50+ lb pit bull mix in our HB 17RK and we're very happy. Our TV is a 2000 Toyota Landcruiser and it tows just fine. The mattress was a killer, but a mattress topper has made things much better.

thanks, How long have you had it? Any issues with quality or slide out?

We picked it up this past April and have been out almost every other weekend since, including a one-week trip to the Eclipse. That's are a few minor interior trim issues that we are planning on getting fixed in a warranty trip to the dealer at the end of the season. No trouble with the slide. I'm seriously thinking of adding a slide-topper before the end of the season to keep it that way.

I did upgrade the battery to a higher capacity deep cycle AGM battery and I haven't regretted it. As far as interior mods we added a push button led battery light in the bath room (saw it here on the forums). Added two more push button battery powered puck lights for reading in bed on each side of the emergency window and I relocated one net and I'm about to relocate another. They were too low to the mattress to be much use. Also, 3m command hooks are your friend. We've got them everywhere: 3 to hold coats and leashes by the door, 3 along the wall to the bathroom and 3 more on the sides of the slide for hats and other things. I also installed a digital (heat only) Honeywell thermostat for the heater (saw it on these forums).

We were looking for a starter trailer that the Landcruiser could tow and that's exactly what we got. We looked at R-pods and the HB the same day, back to back and we liked the HB so much better as far as quality and features.

We typically travel with two Rat Terriers.

Love our 17RK, there's no other TT we'd rather have at the moment. It's been perfect for our family of three plus two furry family members.

Everyone has their own priorities and the large sitting area in the FD is appealing, but do not overlook the extra counter space and storage space in the kitchen of the RK. Our traveling friends with a much fancier Class C motor home are jealous of the RK kitchen

The RK kitchen, couterspace and storage space sold us.

We are also fans of the RK

We also chose the RK because of the increased counter space and extra space in the kitchen. The extra floor space in the kitchen also ensures our 60# furry princess has plenty of dog bed space out from in front of the bathroom door at night. We changed out the mattress after the first weekend out and have had it in for warranty work for a leak in the bathroom, a noisy A/C fan and disappearing motor caps on the awning...all since April and about 30 nights of use.

Concerns

That's one of my concerns, quality. My dealer has a slow turn around time because of a service backlog. Three week minimum. I noticed the quality on my Forest River seemed better than that on my 16 XRB Jayco. I may just wait on a Parkliner or Airstream.
