Puma 351THSS

Hi everyone. Switching from a TT to a TH. I done a search with no results so I would like to know if anyone has an opinion or experience on the Puma Unleashed 351THSS Toy Hauler. I'm kinda leaning that way, but nothing definite. I like everything about it the eye can see, but is there anything that I can't see that is or could be an issue?

I have a buddy with one, who I camp with regularly. His has worked out pretty well. Only issues were with a power awning and those were resolved.

The Palmino (made by Forest River) is wood framed, if I recall right - it's also probably the least expensive toy hauler you can find. That doesn't mean it's bad - just that it's pretty entry level. Generally, most are made the same way - although other brands have aluminum frames. The rest of it is kinda slapped together by hand.

1-year warranty.

If you've never owned an RV before, he is what you should know:
1) Make sure your truck is rated to tow it. The dealer will tell you that it is, but that may not be the case.
2) In many states, like mine, a Class-A license is required to tow it legally. Again - dealer won't tell you and probably doesn't know.
3) Almost all new RVs have issues. Ask the dealer how long you'll need to wait to get it repaired.
4) They'll tell you it can be serviced by "any" Puma dealer. Again, probably not the case as manufacturers pay below-retail on warranty repairs and this puts you at the back of the line - you'll likely only get warranty service where you bought it.
5) Prices vary wildly. Use the RV trader to make sure you're in ballpark on the price.
