I normally agree with almost all the comments made by our senior members who have commented on this post. But, up I must say I did not see anything wrong with the original post and think maybe some others who posted, other than the original poster, needs to have an adult beverage and maybe a chill pill. Lighten up guys, maybe a camping trip will relax you!

Can you show me a post where I've indicated that our trailers are horrible?

I just ran a search to make sure I didn't say "screwed up" in any of my posts. I couldn't find that reference, but maybe it's not an exact match.

I WANT to hear from people like you that have never had a problem..


You'll also note that some of my posts (past) and hopefully future will be technical and helpful in nature - I largely repair all my own stuff, so hopefully I'll be able to add value to the forum.

There are legitimate (identifiable) reports of pretty serious defects on the internet. It's NOT unique to Keystone. If you think that I'm implying that it is, I'm doing it wrong.

Again, I like to hear what you're saying in terms of positive comments. .
While you didn't state "our" trailers are horrible, you used the word Keystone enough times for "us" to conclude that you were being critical of Keystone and their product - aka "our trailers". After all, we are almost all Keystone owners here so what other conclusion could we come to?

If you read your OP in the Toy Hauler forum (post #1), you said, "Keystone, don't screw this up". You're right - it's not an exact match but close enough.

I have owned and kept our Cougar since we bought it in '08. I've never had a problem serious enough to take it back to the dealer or to contact Keystone.

Yes, I do hope that you will post some informative and helpful posts in the future. Posts that are based on your experience and travels with your new Carbon. We have all read about negative experiences posted by some of our members with Keystone. Hopefully, your experiences will be positive ones. In the meantime, I can't see anything constructive in reading more negative and critical posts about Keystone especially those that are gleaned from rumors, the Internet or a friend of a friend. You haven't had any problems yet so let's give Keystone and your Carbon a fair and reasonable chance.

cb1000rider - maybe we aren't speaking the same lingo.

I just wrote a long post trying to determine what it is that you are trying to ascertain about "quality". A new post came in and said we should "chill".
Maybe so. I'm not sure I know the answer you're looking for from my experience.

You are very absorbed in "experiences" of Keystone owners with Keystone. Use the search function and you will find many happy/unhappy comments; mine are among them.

Again, I think you are making a mountain out of a mole hill. You've not had problems; you have a great trailer......why the fixation of some debilitating failure? Just have fun. Trying to assimilate tons of information of owner's good/bad experiences, when you have none to compare to.......is pointless IMO and ruins your experience. You've got a great rig - use it and be happy; let the questions arise when they are needed

**I was writing this before I saw the post from Festus2 - which is a x2

The point was that papers weren't signed until today..... If I had been sitting on one for a month and was asking for those experiences, yea, you're 100% correct. Pre-purchase, I'm very likely to dig as deeply as possible - that includes documented internet experiences, BBB, as well as post by as many happy owners as I can find. Heck, I was grilling the service guys.

My family, especially my son, is very excited...

I think you've made a good choice. From my research (on the foot/in the lot) Keystone will compare to anything out there. To me motorhome experience cheats you from the fun you can have in a regular RV (just had that conversation this afternoon with a motorhome owner for the last 4 years sitting next to me). Not trying to start a conversation on motorhome vs camper but just to illustrate what may be a difference in your previous experience.

It's great your son is excited, as I hope the rest of the family is, to get out and have fun. You've got a great rig all it takes is the "want to"!!

I'm wishing you the best on your Keystone ownership and you need to know there are lots of REALLY knowledgeable folks on this forum that want you to have a problem free, care free, fun experience with your new camper. Keep us posted.

While I haven't owned my 327 for more than a few weeks I can say I don't expect the same build quality form my $50k trailer as I would from a $400k coach!

As for keystone, we owned a 2007 outback Sydney since new, it gave us 8 great years of travel and camping! YEs we had a couple issues, one being that the decals peeled off in places, but I also know of someone with a different brand that is now having the same issue.

Just make your purchase and enjoy it no matter what brand!

Maybe I should have just let this thread die instead of responding, but I'm confused. Maybe the OP was edited, maybe I just interpreted the OP differently, or maybe there are other posts in other threads that created the stir. Outside of all of that, I have to agree with the quote above.

Or maybe it's that I just returned from a camping trip where I had a few adult beverages

bsmith0404 - Read all posts on all threads and draw your own conclusion. Just a matter of approach IMO and I think all is well.

Just back from Pagosa I guess. It may be those adult beverages.....you know they affect you differently when you're up in that beautiful country. Did you get to do any fishing? Sounded like you spent a lot of time on other things. Did you float the San Juan and is it up pretty good? Last year there wasn't a lot of snow runoff like usual and it stayed kind of low compared to normal years. I'm going to try to get there for a month or so in the next few weeks.

I have only had my 357 for a month and only spent 5 nights in it...but I can tell you that I extremely happy with my unit. To date I have only found two issues, and I have crawled all over this thing and ran everything with the exception of the Fuel Station. The two issues were a broken generator tail pipe hanger and the 1/2 bath clean out check valve is not functioning. Both things that I can easily fix myself and I will wait for a few more nights in the camper before I send a hit list to my dealer/Keystone. This is my 3rd RV (First Keystone, not my first Thor), all new and by far the nicest one that I have owned. From a quality standpoint I have zero issues...very impressed with my Keystone experience so far.
