Can anyone give us some information & opinions on the Keystone Outback Trailers. I saw a 26' rear living with slide for sale & my wife & I both liked it. Now I am hearing horror stories about these trailers; roofs flying off, plumbing, etc.. Is the Keystone Outback a good & reliable trailer? Thank you for your assistance.

I had a one slide Outback about 27' no problems at all.It was our first tt and only traded it to go a little bigger.I know someone that had the Outback that had the bedroom slide in the back that you manually pull out and they had some leaking problems.He fixed with some caulk and still has it and happy.For what it's worth I say it's a good tt.

We have used our 03 Outback from 80-100 nights a year and have had no trouble except for a hidden fuse in the radio and drawers that came open when we travel. We found if we tightened the screws on the latches the doors and drawers stay closed.

I've had an outback 5th wheel for the past 3 years. Many trips including a 3600 mile round trip to Yellowstone. Never had any problems with any system. They don't have any issues outside of the ones I've heard about on other trailers. Very satisfied with mine. Check out link below for the owners group. Very helpful folks.

No matter the brand, there will be lemons in each bunch. I owned a Jayco and loved it, now I own a Keystone Cougar. Fit/Finish seem to be the same in both units.

When researching my purchase, I found some negative comments about Keystone, but when you factor in the number of units they sell, and the fact that people usually only complain, rarely praise, I felt it was worth taking a chance.

Some people will tell you to only buy Jayco and I can find an equal amount that have had horror story problems with Jayco.

Remember that all the components are "off the shelf" the same fridge and micro and stove go in all units and are warranteed by their respective company. A Jayco/Keystone/Airstream warranty only covers the "structure".

If you like the floorplan and the price is right, I see no problem with Keystones.

We full time in an Outback 27 RSDS. We have owned 5 travel trailers of different brands over our many years of camping before choosing this one. Full timing (365 nights per year) adds a lot of extra use on a trailer. We are very happy with it. We feel that Outback offers the best value for the dollar. We have alo talked to many owners of Outbacks around the country, without exception, they all loved theirs.

We also have with us a "fur baby." A Chihuahua mix.
