You might want to take a look at the pre delivery inspection checklist (PDI) located here: http://www.keystoneforums.com/forums...ead.php?t=5129 It has a lot of good information on what you should look for BEFORE signing on the bottom line..... Good Luck and enjoy your new adventure !!!

The only issue I have with my opposing slides is that there not deep enough!!

Hi janet,

Welcome to the forums.

I am guessing you have a 24RKPR correct? I have the same trailer and love the opposing sides. It provides LOTS of room in the living area.

Our trailer has been a great trailer with only a couple of issues thus far. We have a 2018 and since new in April 2017, it has only had one issue I had to return to the dealer for which was a water heater circuit board. It fried. I tested it and knew what was wrong but I still had to return it to the dealer for their diagnostics and order the part. Very easy fix.

The other issue is the fan motor in the bathroom died. I ordered a new one and swapped it out. Another easy fix.

I have had issues with some other simple stuff like the trim coming loose that I had to fix, again, easy fixes.

I have done some additional mods to the trailer to add a few more comforts from the base. Such as a fan in the bedroom replacing the basic vent; and installing vent covers on the roof.

We have enjoyed our trailer and has treated us well so far. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions about that model.

This pic is from last May at a campground in Gettysburg.

Ever have any issues with water collecting on the awning? We lost an awning in a storm once and have had the “auto dumping” awning ever since. Also, from your picture it looks like there is room in front of the slide to sit under? I think it is going to take me a bit to get used to the slide poking out front. Another question, two campers we have had have leaked from the center of the gutter in the front of the camper. Weird they run the gutter track from both ends and piece them in the middle. That junction has leaked, fixed with caulking, easy fix as you say. We know there will be “bugs” to work out and we are downsizing, so all that “stuff” IS NOT going back in the new one hahahaha! The roof is one piece and non walkable due to the Ultra lite build without precautions, any issues with this? And one more question. The camper sits lower than our last two, but higher than our Sunline that would bottom out. Have any issues with the lower profile!
Also, I noticed the responders here seem to have 2500 pickup trucks, did you already have them or did you get them to pull this camper? We have a 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 maxed out for towing. I pulled our last heavier, bigger Cougar HT fine, but in the long run we needed to have purchased the 2500. Hindsight is always a kicker. This one is much lighter, the size of our campers prior, so we are well within the “sweet spot” for towing.

Picked it up

All went smooth and easy. I was a little hesitant buying from Camping World because it seems many people bash them. But, cannot say enough good things about Camping World Pittsburgh!

Janet, many folks do bash CW, and I suspect for ample reason. I, on the other hand, have had stellar success with them in the various locations I've used them including my selling dealer (after we all got on the same playing field). I think CW is like any other line of RV dealerships; there are good ones and bad ones. You have to try to find the good ones or, if having encountered a bad one and you must use them, take them to task to make them do what's right - that may or may not work but I generally have success.

What are these?

I think I uploaded a picture to this question. Found these two silver things in the Keystone bag with all the info on the appliances in the camper. No idea what they are for??? Click image for larger version

Janet,

Those silver things allow you to manually open and close the two slides. In the event of power failure you will have to use those pieces with a cordless drill and close the slides. I have never had to do it. Your CW rep that did the PDI should have reviewed that with you.

Yes, there is room under the slide to sit. Not a huge amount but more than enough for us two. The slide out takes up a good bit of space which turns some people off with that floor plan.

The awning does hold water. When I leave camp for the day I will usually bend one leg of the awning to it will drain water. It will work automatically but it takes a lot of weight. Instead of doing that I just bend it before we leave.

We have a routine when we leave the campsite for the day. One of those is to adjust the awning and another one is to turn off the water at the spigot.

My "gutter" was also pieced. I put in some caulk and it sealed it up. No more leaks.

As far as the roof, my warranty statement from keystone says that if a ladder is not installed from the factory, it is not a full walk-on roof.

No issues with ground clearance. It is a bit low but it's higher than my previous trailer. Biggest concern is the tank valves. Just need to be careful.

We had the truck before the trailer. Knowing we will probably only have this trailer until my 2nd retirement, which is now only 6.5 years, we purchased the truck for our next trailer beyond that. I did not want to mess with it again. We will end up with a 5th wheel and I purchased the 2500 for that future purchase. It sounds like your truck will serve you well with this. Our previous TV was a Nissan Titan. Although capable for the last trailer, it would not have been so much for this Keystone.

I did do a handful of mods to my trailer. Do a search here and you will find the thread.

LMK if you have any other questions.

Glad to help.

Congratulations on your new toy Miss Janet. I’m sure you will enjoy many years with it. Something you might keep an eye on is the slide out gearboxes above your slides. Keystone had an issue with the gearbox leaking oil onto the top of the slide and causing a reaction with the roof material. Their fix was to put a drip pan underneath the gearbox. Hopefully yours has this already. Maybe they have the problem fixed already. Either way I would certainly watch for any oil running down the side of the gearbox.
