2607 Thor Laredo 29RL

Hi everyone, Kristine here. Ken is working on the truck deal so I decided to post the question.

We are looking at a used 5th wheel Thor/Keystone 2007 Laredo 29RL. Ken likes the price and I really like the layout.

We are approx 4 years out before retirement so being working folk this rig would be used for weekends and a week or 2 trip a couple times a year. As real newbies (I camped in a C class for a summer years ago but that hardly counts, except for the awesome memories) we are (read I am )quite a bit anxious about this first purchase. We have lived on a 42 foot trawler so am not worried about space being an issue.

Would appreciate any other owners or people with knowledge of this rig chiming in on the pros and cons. Any known defects, what to look out for? This particular rig is very clean, a little sun fade on the outside, but no apparent leaks.

Thanks to everyone, this forum is awesome.

We were exactly where you are, now.

Planning for retirement (then about 5 yrs. down the road) we purchased our Chateau which was also built by Thor. I don't know what similarities there are in the units, beside the manufacturer, but to date we have had no problems that were not of our own making.

We were newbies at the time, saw the add in the paper, went and looked at it (it was spotless) and bought it sight-on-seen. It's been about 3 1/2 yrs and we have not regretted it for a moment.

Good luck.

2007 Thor Laredo 29RL

Thank you Empty nest, appreciate your response and could feel your enthusiasm coming right through the post.

Reading posts like that makes me a little less anxious. Nothing like a good dose of adrenaline from all the excitement to make one feel alive and in control.

Original post I wrote 2607 and haven't been able to change the subject line to 2007. Apologize to all for the error.

Really wishing to hear from someone with this model or knowledge of it would chime in. Any heads up?

Thanks again, kris

For how you will be using a Laredo, it will serve you well. It's not suited particularly for full time, hard use, as it is not built heavy enough.

Being a 2007 Laredo doesn't really matter, any trailer can have problems. You need to check it over very well for rot, and just double check all the appliances to make sure they are good. Those are the major things.

Thanks for the comment. We plan to go over any unit with a fine tooth comb and make sure all appliances work and all leveling systems, etc.
