Passport vs KZ Spree

Hello, I have put a refundable down payment on a new 2015 Passport 2400bh for 19k. I love the fact that I was able to get last years model brand new for what I consider a good price. I was at a RV show the other day and saw a 2016 KZ Spree with the exact same floor plan for 6k more. I am definitely leaning towards the Keystone based on the color scheme and the lower price, but I wanted to get some opinions on which one you guys would go with? A 2016 KZ Spree or 2015 Passport 2400BH? Your expertise would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much

I just bought KZ Spree Connect 250bhs. Pretty much same floor plan. It was a 2015 holdover for almost 3 grand less than what you are paying for same year and floor plan passport.

KZ has a full 2 year warranty and on my walk through seems very well built.

Found my notes..
The kz I looked at a few year ago also had much taller pass thru stowage doors and a larger fresh water tank. Couldn't get a cooler in the Passport front storage. The kz was a little heavier, which goes into the construction. If you like the floorplan I'd go with the kz if only for the walk on roof. How will you do regular seal inspections if you can't walk on? Its always harder to buy a trailer based on what you can't see. Another item to consider are tires. If they are no name, get the dealer to install the largest Maxxis m8008 that will fit the rims.

We bought a 2013 Passport last August. At the walkthrough we were told that we could walk on the roof. I wouldn't hold square dances up there, but the guy assured us we would be ok to get up there for inspections.

Have done a lot of research on Keystone in general and their warranty issues are horrendous. It's a fight to get things fixed and who wants to deal with that?? They have a forum and there is often a lot of not so good comments on items such as electrical problems, leaking, appliance issues as well as front cap issues. Do the reading on this before you buy. I want someone who stands by their product. KZ has GREAT customer support and I have heard good things regarding their warranty and service. I was on a keystone page for a long time as far as buying one and we are now ready to purchase a KZ Spree.
Good Luck.
