Need Info on/input about TT

Hi folks,

After thirteen years in a pop up we are looking to buy a travel trailer. We are currently looking into Rockwood 23RS, Jay Feather X213, Outback 210 RS. We are a family of six with four kids getting ready to leave the nest but still like to camp with mom & dad We like your input on likes/dislikes, quality of construction. We want to stay with a smaller trailer.

Thanks

Hi Hoots

We have a 2005 outback 21rs and overall have been quite happy with it ( bought it used 4yrs ago). My friend and my cousin both have the jay feather models I believe both are 2011.
It seems the jay feather has more storage then our outback (the new model may be different). We have a young family of 4 and sleeping arrangements work well, with 6 it will be doable with the jackknife couch and table but may be cramped, but as you mentioned it may not be 6 for long.
As I recall the rockwoods stove was on the other side of the counter right behind the table sofa, we did not like it so close to we're we sit.
The new outbacks do look really nice.
I know outback had a rear slide model with a 4 bunk room up front as well. Not sure what your tow vehicle is and it may be to large.

Hope this helps

Bill

Thank you Bill. Have you had any issues with the rear slide? I haven't heard anything, I am just wondering how they hold up. Towing will not be a problem, we have an F250 Diesel. We haul horses as well.

Thanks
Jay

I think you have to consider the following points:
1. Which camper will sleep 6 the most comfortably.
2.Is the 2 year warranty on a new Jayco a deciding point?
3. How important is the outside kitchen of the Keystone to your style of camping.
4. Does any one of the three stand out in terms of quality, fit and finish?
5. Is one of these units much better matched for my tow vehicle?
6. With the kids getting older, should the sleeping arrangements for 6 be a priority? A couple of the kids could alays sleep in a tent.

Our rear slide is manual, clip in rails and pull/push.
I believe the 210rs is electric so I can't really be any help there. I have had no problems with leakage or wear with the manual.
