Keystone Forum?

I see Forest River and a number of other manufacture's forums but not Keystone. Are they owned by someone else?

The reason I ask is because I have recently heard (hearsay) that Cougar has a reputation for de-lamination of the front end cap. I do know of one Cougar with a side wall de-lamination issue but can find nothing else about the problem.

I would like to know if all Keystone products have a problem and/or if it is only with a specific year. I like the Cougar models we have looked at but am now gun-shy until I learn more.

BTW we are looking at used.

Anyone else heard of de-lamination problems?

Not sure about the delam issue, but Keystone has it's own sub-forum under the Thor Industries Owners Forum.

Thor also has Airstream, Crossroads, Dutchman, Heartland and Redwood under it's wing.

I have own a Keystone Cougar since Feb 2010 and have never heard of this issues. The front end cap on most Keystone RV's is similar to other makes where the front is a one piece molded cap similar to the JayCO and others brands.
I am also a member of this Keystone form too.

Hi

That problem was peculiar to only 1 or 2 years production and then not to all of the composite parts from the same vendor. Keystone has since change vendors and it seems to have corrected the problem.

Other than that I can only offer my condolences for your unfortunate event of having purchasing a Thor product.

Keystone Forum

There is also a Keystone Montana forum at Montana Owner's Club Discussion Forum - Powered by ForumCo.com - The Forum Company. It's a great place to ask and answer questions and get help about the Montana 5th wheel.

True, just be very careful what you say about anybody else and don't ever go anywhere near politics. They will either delete your comment or maybe delete you and bar you from posting.

Arctic Fox

That's a good choice.

We had a 29' Arctic Fox TT 3 RV's ago. It wasn't the fanciest around but it was mongo well built. The only problems we ever had with it were related to the tires.

There's probably a Nash/Arctic Fox/Desert Fox owners board around too!

Our 1999 Nash was sturdy but the fit and finish could have been better. Over time they have improved and our 2005 Arctic Fox is perfectly acceptable. We have seen fancier but that we don't need. We are after all camping with a dog so there is dirt etc.

And they have some people that are supposed to be very educated (4 to 8 years of college) that make down right dangerous statements and recommendations.

Keystone Forum

You must have had a bad experience. We've been to some of the rallies and on the forum for over 3 years and never had a problem. Unfortunately, your comments have turned me off this website and I won't be back.

Didn't say there weren't lots of good folks over there, it's the admin types that drive us crazy. What does what we say about a different forum have to do with this one?
