Partner RV Pick: Forest River XLR Nitro Boost 29QBS 1536

What makes an awesome RV? No one knows the answer better than the folks living and breathing the road life, like Zach and Mary, hosts of Country Outdoor Adventures.

The couple travel the country hunting, fishing, and enjoying the best of the bucolic lifestyle with their dog in their own RV.

While Camping World hunkered down in Forest Lake, MN for week 7 of the Ultimate RV Roadshow, the duo joined the team for an exclusive interview.

Sit down with Zach, Mary, and the Camping World team as they dive into the couple’s favorite 2021 RV pick—the Forest River XLR Nitro Boost 29QBS. The toyhauler caters to Zach and Mary’s active, adventurous lifestyle, and surprises even these seasoned RVers with shocking new functional and fashionable features.

Watch the virtual walk-thru above, and take a look at what makes this toyhauler a #1 pick for Zach and Mary.


At 36 feet 10 inches long, the XLR Nitro Boost packs in loads of features into an approachable package.

Blue LED accent lights illuminate the outside of this modern, sporty rig. Mary notes these accent lights make finding your way back to your campsite really easy. An exterior TV with outdoor speakers sets the Nitro Boost up to be an excellent tailgating RV, while an enclosed and heated underbelly outfits the Nitro Boost as an all-seasons camper.

2021 RV’s are all about tasteful aesthetic touches and the Nitro Boost is no exception. Mary loves the entertainment center with fireplace, noting it “adds such ambiance to the feel inside.” On icy days spent out hunting, 5,000 BTUs of heat take the chill off in a hurry once you cozy up back at the campsite.

Built for both fun and comfort, the toy-hauler doesn’t scrimp on space at 102 inches wide, and over six feet of interior ceiling height, while still remaining low and safe for driving. Mary says high ceilings “makes the space feel a lot bigger and larger.”


An L-shaped countertop creates plenty of counter space for preparing meals in the kitchen. Panorama windows let in natural light, which Mary loves, and showcase the view behind the pull-out jack-knife sofa or dinette.

A 10 cubic foot refrigerator holds ample groceries for a long getaway. Mary describes making large shopping trips during the pandemic and filling a fridge with more than a week’s worth of food. Having fresh food on hand saves money on driving days when you can simply pull over for a bite of lunch, instead of swinging into drive-thrus or ordering out.

As avid hunters, Mary and Zach store game in the freezer and need all the space they can get. The XLR Nitro Boost offers all that space and more with additional overhead cabinetry for crockery and dry goods.


“I really like having the 2 doors, “said Zach as they headed into the primary bedroom. Separating living spaces are crucial when it comes to finding space and privacy living full-time in an RV. Hidden storage under the bed makes the most of every inch of space.


Toyhaulers are defined by their garages, and the XLR Nitro Boost is built to be multi-purpose. Use it as a party-deck or extra guest bedroom, or pull in up to 2000 lbs of toy storage to take on your next adventure.

With additional sleeping and an extra half bath, the garage is indeed its own apartment. Mary ogles the party deck and imagines pulling it up to the lake for “waterfront real estate.” At the right campsite, you might just be able to fish right off your own deck.
