@Marlin Mike could answer that question about the quality of the new trailers... or at least one of them.I don't know if the quality has improved much since then. I do know that an acquaintance I recently ran into as he was parking his 2 month old, $75,000 5th wheel, the brand escapes me, showed me where a fire started behind the fridge as he and his family were sleeping on their second outing in their new toy. Smoke alarms never went off, guy walking by saw the flames. Their first outing they found out the waste tank was not connected. Lemon law attorney contacted. Do you homework and be patient.
Didn’t you get the memo. Winter Blackmouth is closed.I keep coming back to finding a 24-30’ car hauler, preferably all aluminum. Stripping it, and building it myself. I bet we won’t be in it more than 2 nights at a time. And, not “living” in it. Get to town, prep boat. Eat, shower, sleep. Wake up, quick breakfast, onto boat. Kill shitloads of fish, clean fish, clean boat, hot trailer, clean bodies, drive home to Oly.
Keystone and Forest River are the large production assembly lines. That’s good and bad... they have more to practice on, they have assembly procedures that can identify issues, and they do it over and over.... The bad..... wrong guys on the assembly line, bad training in a department etc.... They make them under different names for other manufacturers too....Anyone have thoughts on the Keystone Cougar Half Ton series? Looking at a 25 or 29 bunkhouse.
We have the keysyone passport 2950bh which is the passport/ultralight version of the cougar 29bhs. The cougar is keystones highest grade of bumper pull travel trailer. When we were looking it felt higher end then our passport. Is is heavier which i believe means it has better core materials, insulations, etc... The extra weight and price is why we didnt go with the cougar and chose the passport.Anyone have thoughts on the Keystone Cougar Half Ton series? Looking at a 25 or 29 bunkhouse.
We bought an Aliner Expedition two years ago. Its great for what it is. For two people, three seasons, its really great, especially for those who have a small tow vehicle. It also fits in the garage.Here Yah go. For a couple nights at most what more could you ask for? And they're sooooooo cute. The shower is inside.

Prolly not what you're looking for. Kind of cool though but the size might get old fast and could start you on the road of swapping to new, bigger and more comfortable. We went from having three different Coleman tent trailers, all bought new. Liked those as they were easy to get into the hills to a lake or two that I liked to fly fish on. Then went to a slide in truck camper so I could tow my boat. Then to a 5th wheel. Finally ended with real estate. At least that was our progression.
I heard he hasn’t officially asked the gatekeepers at float 12 for permission yet. There are some standards to be met that must pass muster with @dragonballs @goatram and some other keepers of the gate.......Fuck me. First talk of you putting a boat on float 12 and now the potential of you looking to move into tuna town.
Those are our observations as well. The 29 has the rear cargo door and more living space. Since our daughter is an only child, I can see us bringing one of her friends on future trips, hence bunks would be handy. We have a 3/4 ton truck so towing weight is not an issue. Payload on it is 2900 lbs.We have the keysyone passport 2950bh which is the passport/ultralight version of the cougar 29bhs. The cougar is keystones highest grade of bumper pull travel trailer.

We started out thinking we were goijg to get a 24 bunkhouse but once we got in them the room in a 29 was so much better. The 24s have little storage, only the dinette. Most 24s have the same layout with tv on wall between front bedroom and living area which is a terrible place for a tv. We narrowed down down to the 26bh passport and 2950bh passport. We went with the 2950 for the following reasons. 2nd entry door straight into the bathroom which is nice so you dont have to track dirt all over the trailer when going to the bathroom. The 2950 has a huge back trunk door and the bottom bunk folds up. It makes it rasy to load anf gives a ton of spacr to put big stuff. The bottom bunk was much lower in the 2950 which made it seem like an adult could actually sleep in it without feeling it is too small. It had a couch and dinette with the tv facing the couch. It also has a ton of storage.
The cougar 295 is not half ton towable in my opinion. The cougar 295 is almost 1k more then my passport dry. With my high payload 2019 f150 (not heavy duty payload package), i am at maxy payload for the truck althoigh i do have a canopy. That vougar 295 will probably be 8500# loaded. With 12% tongue weight you are at 1000# before throwing anything or any people in your truck. Payload will be the limot you will hrt before anything else. Max tongue weight may also be right at the limit of your actual hitch with a half ton. If you have a 3/4 ton or bigger nevermind all this
Keystone also has a factory in california or oregon. The trailers sold in the west come from the west coast mostly. If you look at the model number it should have a "we" at the end.
I knew there was a reason I grabbed a spot on 19 as I'm sure I wouldn't pass the mustard of those snobs. Plus the parking is easy. Maybe it was the parking.
