Outdoors RV make a nice product, and solid. Even if you have to tool around fixing minor stuff, you are likely to enjoy a long enjoyable ownership..... worth it, from my experience with my Black Rock.

Good luck in the choosing!

Winnebago Towables!
Also Coleman and Kodiak are both well made with really great floorplans.

Another happy Winnebago owner. I'd also look at Arctic Fox or Nash especially if you want a four season trailer. At a lower price, check out Jayco or StarCraft. Both companies provide a two year warranty. Look at lots of trailers and you'll see where the shortcuts are made to keep the price down. If you plan to take longer trips, really look at storage space. We chose our Minnie because of the great storage space and the outdoor kitchen as well as the overall quality and construction. I would have liked a 4 season trailer, but didn't want the extra weight or have to go with a smaller trailer or one without a slide out.

there was a thread on this a short while ago about negative feedback on keystone, but no specifics were given. Have to ignore these for now.

if they were in fact major issues i'd like to hear about them.

Keystone

we have a 2014 Keystone Hideout, 30ft, large Slide, 3 beds that will sleep 2 adults each. I had a Hartland North Country 24 ft. we loved it, Very well made, if it had had slide out we would still have it. one thing I will recommend is get one with a slide out, a real must have.

I've never owned one, but from what I know from friends and what I saw while shopping, many of the brands under the Dutchmen umbrella are quite good.

I'm looking hard at TTs right now. Outdoors RV, Jayco Eagle, Winnebago Ultralites, and Grand Design Reflrction are my list of possibilities right now. I am also looking at Solair Eclipse, and Heritage Glen trailers, but they're not as high on my list. My Surveyor has actually been a pretty good trailer, but it has only one narrow slide and it's kitchen space is limited. To be honest, it doesn't look like it was made as well as the first 4 mentioned above. The last two are about the same quality as the Surveyor.


I have posted some negative comments about Keystone, even though I don't own one. I work on one for a friend that's very unhandy. Sorry but his trailer isn't up to par on the quality side. Perhaps it was built on Monday... or Friday... When I talk about quality I'm referring to the construction materials and what care was put into assembling the unit. The appliances are pretty much the same in all of them.

Keystone Premier26RB, nice trailer but final details like shelf supports and STAPLES to hold trim in place are weak links, otherwise floor plans, towability b+

I know I mentioned it before, but I really was impressed with the quality, especially interior, of the Kodiak and Coleman trailers.
If you have a dealer nearby, it's worth a look. Even if it's not your floorplan, you'll get an idea of the decor and fit.
