Bullet 1900RD from a popup from a class A

My wife and I had a class A coach but we like to go WAY down the national seashore near Corpus Christi, Texas and decided we needed something more off-road capable. So we bought a 2017 popup and absolutely loved it. But... then we figured out that we wanted to be more mobile so that we could move from one fishing spot to another more easily. Back to the drawing board we went.
Behold!.. our new Keystone Bullet 1900RD. The wife likes how nice and open the rear dinette area feels with all the windows. I like how I don't have to pack it up or down in bad weather. Just throw the kayaks, gear and generator in the truck and go!
I'm not much for lettering all over my RV so the first thing I did was de-badge it of all of the logos. I'm considering adding a round portal window to the front.

Our previous camper... which we loved but didn't love moving

If your thinking of your portal window on the front cap, I personally would re-think that. That cap "build, structure, design" has had quite a few threads and post over the years for delamination and the last thing that I would want would be another possible water intrusion point. Doesn't seem like it takes much moisture in between the layers to get the "ugly" delamination look.

We went from a pop-up to a Bullet. We love it for the same reasons you do. Oh, and nice Blazer too!

And you don't have to set it up once you get home to dry it out

We have the same large rear dinette (which I LOVE) and I took the cushions to an upholsterer and had much better, much firmer foam put in them. The spouse is 6' and about 140 lbs and HE hit bottom after sitting in the dinette for an hour or so.

Thanks for the heads up on that!

I've had at least a dozen 4X4 K5's over the last 30 years. We just sold that one because my wife wanted something older. She likes "old iron" when it comes to vehicles. We are currently pulling our Bullet (we call it the Mullet) with our 2016 F150 4X4.

Funny, we downsized from a 36' Class A Bunkhouse to a 2017 Passport 217exp. The dealer warned us that going from a class a to a hybrid would be a big change and we should really think about it before committing. We took the plunge as our kids are no longer little and did not want to sleep in small bunks. Our hybrid has three queen beds and the family loved the camping season this year. Yes there is more setup than the class a. but I love to tinker around the campsite and don't mind the extra setup.
I am glad to hear I am not the only one who made that switch. I always get people giving me the are you crazy look when I tell them I downsized.
