We have narrowed down our search after a lot of research. We are considering these two trailers and I was wondering if anyone had any input on either of these units or either of these brands.

Here our likes and dislikes.

Cougar likes

    King and bedroom space
    Hitch installed for bikes
    Water and grey tanks
    Full size awning
    Access to kitchen and bathroom with slides closed
    Two doors


Cougar dislikes


    This one lacks 2nd AC
    No night stands
    Need to move recliners to close slide
    Priced 8k higher than Vibe
    Pass thru Storage has items that could get damaged
    No black tank flush on this one


Vibes likes

    Open floorplan
    Island kitchen
    2 ACs on my unit
    $8k less
    Night stands
    Storage inside
    Potentially will retain value better
    Slides open into campsite, mixed feelings


Vibe dislikes

    Two awnings may offer less usable space under it
    Only 40g fresh water
    No access to kitchen with slides in
    No hitch for bikes
    No ladder in back
    Potentially less insulation than Cougar


I would appreciate any feedback or anything else worth considering, like quality, towability and manufacturers support etc.

Thank you

Because of the horrible low-quality of the Cougar, I would avoid it. You'll thank me later.

We have the Cougar, love it but did have some issues the first few trips! Things came apart but I and dealer were able to get them fixed! Love the room when camping!
