TT that is like Keystone Alpine?

Hello all. My wife and I recently bought a Keystone Alpine 3600RS. We fell in love with it and had to jump on it. It didn't hurt either that we got a new 2013 for half off.

Just out of curiosity's sake I was wondering if there is a TT out there that might offer the same levels of luxury and options as this 5er? Just curious because we bought this as a long-term purchase and couldn't find something in the TT category like this, even though that's where we started looking.

I know the differences in interior dimensions, weight, and overall size just wondering about amenities, design, and build.

Thanks all.

I haven't noticed one. We sold an Alpine recently. Nice trailer, lots of features, but still a Keystone. I just don't like them a lot, no offense.

I purchased a 2012 Alpine 3600RS as well and I LOVE the floor plan, space and design of this camper. The nearest TT was a Dutchman Colorado as far as the design, but their 30 Amp service left a lot to be desired. Even their 5er units were 30 amp power as well.

So 2 questions for you if you don't mind.

1. You sound like someone who is in the industry, so in your professional opinion what are the faults of the Keystone brand?
2. Based on your above answer what brands would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Just a cheap trailer like most of them but having had a few Keystone's apart and being in the little crevices, I've noticed the workmanship is just more elementary than other low level trailers. Parts used, assembly and installation are just cheaper than most and done in a way that makes you say "why?"

We are selling Forest River lines. Catalina & Freedom Express. Looking in them, they are done better. They still have head scratchers, but not as many.
Now, I haven't really dug around in new Keystone's lately, so I can't go as far to say that they are bad now.
