Cougar Half Ton 26RBS

We're considering upgrading from our 2013 Premier 22RBS to the Cougar Half Ton 26RBS. It has a better layout and gives us more space. We had been considering the Grand Design Imagine but this unit has a better layout.

Some questions:

- In the outdoor kitchen, there's a grill rather than burners. Has anyone used this? Can it replace a gas grill?

- Have there been any upgrades to the entertainment center since 2023? Bluetooth?

- It has a king bed. How have you made the standard mattress more comfortable?

Thanks for your feedback.

I can't help with your first two questions. Regarding making the mattress more comfortable? My DW got 2 or 3 inch memory foam topper, and it made a big difference as far as comfort. Just one thing I didn't like...I sunk into it, and it was an effort to simply roll over in bed while sleeping. I'm no small guy, but hardly a monster either.

Hope the insight helps.
Mike

Smiggle, what Mike ^^^^ said. It becomes a chore to roll over on a cheap mattress, even more with a topper.

I have the Cougar 26SABWE with the king mattress and it sucks. I'm looking to purchase one of these three in the next month or so. (72x75)

We just purchased a 2018 26RBS. Joanie wanted a king bed and so it was easy to narrow down our choices.
No experience yet, though, as we take delivery in May.
My understanding about the outdoor kitchen grill is that it is intended to replace a free-standing grill. Which is fine if you donít prefer charcoal, I suppose.
But I am so new to this I may not have any insights worth listening to. Give me a few more months!

Thanks for your replies. We brought our 2018 Cougar 26RBS home on Thursday and have been "playing" with it in our driveway. I'll post pictures soon .

We went with the 8" LUXURY GEL FOAM RV MATTRESS W/ORGANIC COTTON from mattress insider. BEST mattress we have ever owned. Will be replacing our home mattress with the same thing when it wears out.

Thanks Sealyn. That does look good. We are going to try a mattress topper on our first trip this week and see how it goes.
I'll post pictures from there.... Harpers Ferry KOA. Trying to get somewhere a little warmer than here.

We have a 2015 Cougar and love it. The Sealy mattress that came with it is good but the DW and I both have bad hips and it wasn't great for us. We just added the gel/foam 3" topper from Costco and love it so much we are getting two more for other beds at home.
