Laredo Tugger 09-14-2018 07:19 AM

We traded a FR TT for our used Laredo 350FB.
We were looking at a new FR 5er that, but looking back it was nowhere near the quality of the Laredo.
I'm not sure where Laredo falls in the pecking order of the Keystone lineup,but it is more than enough trailer and quality for me.

My 5ver is the highest quality and best ever built... hold on a few minutes while I go out and look at what the model is; it is on the decals and the specific model is written next to the door. Just an FYI, unless an owner is really mad about unit issues, they will crow to the world that their buying choice was better than sliced bread.

We have what has become Keystones premium 5th wheel in the last couple years, the Redwood line, & my '13 is very nice as far as fit/finish, all wood cabinets, plywood not OSB flooring, still suffering from lack of QC on little things like all rvs, but was lacking in the suspension/tire area. I've upgraded all the shackles, wet bolts, added disc brakes & H rated tires, which by the way most of these are standard now, making it a very nice 5er.
I totally agree, if more folks would read a few different forums like this one BEFORE buying any rv they'd learn to look under them before being awestruck by all the bling inside.

That phony fireplace and tv popping up from a cabinet via remote control makes me almost want to spend my money on a "premium" trailer. Then I find out they are all pretty much built the same way with the same just-barely getting by suspensions, framing and insulation, I come back to earth. If you want top of the line, look at these bad boys:

Check out prices on rvtrader for a new rig. NOTHING under $150K Geesh, that is more than we paid for our house! (it has been a few years though)

Their "top of the Line " toy hauler didn't seem all that much better then my Fuzion to me? A few things looked good but for the most part seems to be the same unit for big money. LOL To each their own.

I think they use Amish craftsmen to build them and pay those folks $153 and hour!

We looked at luxe line but then I woke up to reality that we just weekend for now. We are happy with the cougar line. I agree with you George if you donít have issues or are willing and able to deal with them yourself you can be happy with any keystone.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the door pistons from?
Our 2018 Hideout 38FDDS didn't come with them either.
Thanks!

I'm not sure where our Outback falls in the pecking order, compared to comparable trailer floor plans I've looked at (there are only so many 37' 9" bumper pulls out there), I've been more than happy with our trailer. I still think I have the best floor plan for our needs in this size trailer.

We've been looking at a Raptor 426TS, but someone in South Carolina just cheated us out of a chance to get it..........maybe the next drawing! :D
