Keystone Raptor vs Fuzion

I went to the Keystone web site and they have all their products listed. Under toyhauler they have low $ , mid $, higher $. Under higher $4 they have Fuzion and Raptor. What is the difference between the Raptor and the Fuzion. I have a 2010 Fuzion 383 TE 11 and love it. But was just wondering the difference inquiring minds want to know, lol George

In general Fusions are fancier and have more options.

We looked at both and just liked the layout and offering of the Fuzion better. I still look and both and still the Fuzion wins hands down.

We also looked at both, did some research and they ate pretty much the same,frame wise etc. So it boiled down to interior design and options so we are now awaiting a 2013 raptor. The dealer and factory Rep really worked hard for us and even tho they no longer make the velocity pkg. on the raptor ours will have it with hydraulic 6 pt system jacks and a few more options. So excited, cant wait to see it as we don't know yet what the 2013 has to offer different than the 2012. Should be here 1st week in may.

I thouht they were probably the same as for as constuction goes. both upper end Keystone. We chose the 383 Fuzion because of the things that made it unpopular. No bunk beds, very small garage, the 383 was only made for three years and was dicontinued because of low sales. We are retired so there is just the two of us, small garage, we carry our Harley Triglide with us just right fit more living area. This is our thrid Keystone, 2003 3670 Montana, 2009 3400RL Anniversary Edition Montana, and now the 2010 Fuzion Touring Edition 11 Toyhauler. We realy loved the 3400 but could not take the Trike with us so had to make concessions I have been riding for over 40 years and even thou I had to go to three wheels because of age and health issues I was not ready to quit ridding. We have had very good luck With our campers I read about a lot of the problems out there and do feel for those having them. There is always breakdowns and repairs to be done and I beleive dealer and maintenance is a big difference. When we had a stick and brick there was always something to do to it and it wasn't pulled down the road at 60 mph. Thanks for the comments and hope evey one has a great spring and camping season. George

I have a 2012 tri glide and am purchasing a 2007 Raptor 3712. Do you have any problems with dragging pipes or high centering while riding the Tri into your trailer? Thanks Fred

We looked and looked also and ended up with the Fuzion 375. It was the lighter interior and floor plan that sold me. We thought we needed the 12' garage but are very happy with the 10'. Both of our bikes fit in it just fine and we plan to take either one or both bunks out to lighten the load. We are full-timing in it and it's working great!

The only difference I found between the Raptors and Fuzions when we were looking was a difference of 6 inches in interior width. (ON Edit::::: Changed to proper model sorry it was not Fuzion as originally stated) Energy's were 92" and Raptors were 98". This was the case for both TT and 5th wheels and units varied as much as an inch. For many the difference in width means little but for those of us hauling snowmobiles need the width to put machines in side by side.

Dealer told us they were exactly the same but both the wife and I knew something was different. Sales man gave us the I have been doing this for a lot of years and there are no differences. When I pulled my tape measure out he was no longer interested in working with us.
