2014 keystone passport 2910bh

Just picked up my first travel trailer. It's a 2014 keystone passport ultra lite 2910bh. Any helpful information about this particular tt or any general information for a beginner would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help

Not perfect, but a very nice unit. I put several thousands miles on similar model, 2650. Behaves well behind SUV. Problems have nothing to do with ultralight structure.
I would suggest sealing and waterproofing of countertop edges first of all, especially in the bathroom, they will be destroyed and delaminated by water. I removed plastic edge from the countertop perimeter and applied epoxy glue, other materials can be used as well.
Kitchen drawer slides failed after the first trip, the steel was too thin. Replaced by heavy duty slides from the Home Depot. It took about 2 hours.
Sleeping surfaces are a matter of taste, some people can sleep on the hard floor and enjoy it. We preferred to put memory foam everywhere + good mattress topper on the queen bed.
There is definitely no reason for Keystone not to put true kitchen exhaust, but they keep doing it even on luxury fifth wheels. We ended up installing one after market by the dealer
Planning to have hitch receiver tube welded into the frame next week, no more taking chances with the bumper receiver
Good luck

We bought from lazy days. They said all counter tops were sealed.. do you suggest sealing again? Definitely are going to get memory foam for all sleeping surfaces. Any ideas or suggestions to keep carpet clean? Also in the bunk house there is cable hook up. How should I mount a tv ? To the wall or top of the dresser?

Well...Unless they really changed countertop material. I've seen better solid surface countertop on Passport Elite, but not on regular Passports. I have silicone calk between the wall and the countertop, but nothing on the edges. In our case the problem started only after about 50 days of continuous use..
We ordered pre-delivery carpet and furniture treatment against stains but I believe it is not necessary, beige carpet material under the dinette and next to the sofa should not get visually dirty too easily, and it is washable.
I would not attach anything to the wall without the dealer's help and approval. On my own I would use dresser.

That's a nice TT. Anyone towing this with a Ram 1500? Looks like it is within my weight range, just a little long...this TT is almost exactly what my wife wants. Update us after you have a couple trips in.

I have 2 small did and children. Periwinkle says no dogs, so that one's out of the question. Any family friendly and pet friendly campgrounds?

Never thought about dogs, Periwinkle is more like exception. I can recommend Sun-n-Fun and Myakka River RV resort as well, in Venice/Sarasota area. In Catskills, NY- Yogi Bear is beyond competition, going there again in July. On Cape Cod we selected Shady Knoll, going there after the Yogi. All resorts we visited were family friendly. It is important to avoid cheap places which are no different from mobile home parks populated by folks who don't have money for the house
It's important to remember that ALL places in south and central Florida are 100% packed during winter, so advance reservation is needed.
Good luck!

Thanks for the info.. much appreciated. Yea I want to avoid the low end camp grounds or any trailer parks... no permanent living! :-) I'm looking for pet and kid friendly near a natural spring or a river.. something my kids will not get bored easily.. My son is 9 and loves fishing.
