OK Which new TT Keystone or Winnebago?

Trying to decide between a Keystone Cougar or a Winnebago. I have read on the internet both good and bad on both. Both are within $1000 of each, with similar floorplans. So I'm looking for feedback from owners of both on the good & the bad, and how both manufacturers treated you on any warranty issues. Thanks

RE: How Long in Shop is Too Long

I know Florida is a long way from the factory, but if I were you I would contact FR and deal with them directly, to the point of even sending or taking the unit back to the factory for the needed repairs (in some cases they have arranged transportation). As you can see CW is incapable of repairing your unit, and in addition consider your warranty is wasting away.

RE: What're your favorite external clip-on mirrors

While the CIPA appear to be the best they are vehicle specific and they are not available for all vehicle make/years or models. Research is needed to determine if they are made for your vehicle.

RE: Looking for a good MID SIZED SUV tow vehicle

Consider the Dodge Durango. The 3.6L tows 6200lbs and the 5.7L Hemi tows 7200-7400lbs. I tow a 5500lb trailer with the 5.7 and it does fantastic. I towed from Phoenix to San Diego in November averaged over 13MPG and going thru the mountains never exceeded 3500RPM. What surprised me most was the Durango has more GVWR, Payload and GCWR than all the 1500 Ram Trucks I looked at. The only down side is you need to use 3rd party mirror extensions when towing.

RE: Planning trip through NM and AZ any cool points of interest?

On the way to Sedona on I-40 stop at Meteor City and take the tour. Also on I-40 is Walnut Canyon (Native American ruins). Slide Rock State Park is nice. The hike around Bell Rock in Sedona is nice also. For Restaurants, go to the Coffee Pot (have 101 Omelets). Also Javelina Cantina has very good Mexican Food.

RE: Seller's and Unreasonable Pricing

If you want to see ridiculous prices look at the used 3/4 and 1 ton truck pricing out there. People are asking big bucks for trucks that have 150 to 200K Miles on them. For 10K more you can buy new.

RE: staffing

If you are having this much trouble now before they take your money what is service going to be like "after" they have your money. Look for a dealer who wants your business and stay away from CW.

RE: Help me find a quality TT

I agree with RCcrazy. In the past I owned 2 5th wheel trailers mfg by Northwood. In both cases during the PDI I only found 1 or 2 minor items to be fixed. Their frames are heavier than most TT's but that's because they manufacture their own frames. In addition their production people are paid a bonus or NOT based upon warranty claims on a unit. Also their customer service is outstanding.

RE: GM integrated brake control

Bob, I was on another forum and they were discussing the same problem you have. Sorry can not remember the forum, but the cause was a bad connection between the truck wiring and at least one of the pins in the 7 pin plug. Not enough voltage ( I think 12-15 volts is normal)was going through the pin to activate the brake controller properly. GM techs did not find the problem, a trailer hitch tech discovered it. Hope this helps isolate the problem.

RE: artic fox rvs

I have owned 2 different size Arctic Fox 5th wheels. Also been to the factory in LaGrande, OR several times. In the 6 years I owned them never any problems, not even during the PDI's which took 4 hours each. The only thing I would say is they are heavier than most of their competition. They are rated very high in all reviews.

RE: First Timer

First tell us what you are going to pull it with. That will determine what size/weight trailer you should get.

RE: How do you store/secure your portable generator?

When I had 2 Honda 2000's I would use a chain through the handles and wrap the chain around each then chain them together and padlock them to the truck in the bed.

RE: Lance Trailers

We looked at them before buying our Rockwood. Thought they were well built adequate floor plans, but what turned us off was the "big" window up front. Thought there was to much possibility of a damaged window, water leakage and the heat transfer into the TT would be excessive IMHO.

RE: Good Smaller - Medium Units to Check Out and Advice

First do not look at the "Dry Weight". Use the GVWR as a towing weight. Next are you looking for a high range TT like a Airstream or mid range like Northwood, Keystone or Jayco or a entry level like Dutchman, Forest River or Lance. Understand different years TT's are rated differently as far as quality, customer service etc. goes. I purchased the Travel Trailer & 5th Wheel Comparison Guide by Randall Eaton on Amazon for $70. Money well spent. Gives much detail on the various years and is an independent evaluation. Good luck

RE: Rear View Camera opinions

I just purchased a refurbished Voyager WVO511 wireless set up from rvcams for $375 vs a new one for $599. Have not installed it yet but looks simple to install, and it received excellent reviews.

RE: Need help buying a tow vehicle f

I just replaced my sedan with a 2015 Dodge Durango V8 that has 7200-7400lb tow capacity depending if 2WD or AWD. I also bought a Rockwood 2304KS with a 5023 GVWR. Tows great, HOWEVER one problem. The OEM mirrors on the Durango do not provide adequate rear view sight. In addition am having a problem finding mirror extensions that work. The Jeep vehicle line has the same problem I'm told. Dealer never said anything about this prior to purchase. Suggest get either a full side SUV or a 1500 somebody's truck.

RE: Tires - When to change

I was told by a travel trailer mfg ST tires should be changed out at 10,000 miles or 3-5 years max even if they look good.
