Yeah, we pumped the brakes after we got the essentials like surge protector, pressure regulator, etc. Then we just made a list of the nice to haves and will prioritize them, they will make good gift ideas. I just want the great white north to warm up so I can de-winterize her!

Ainít that the truth.

Go buy something after you need it or you can spend thousands on things you think you need.

All you really need is your truck, keys and your favourite allies.

Oh ya and some beviís!

22 rbs

We too just bought a 22rbswe, got it home and the awning wouldn't retract , the gearing in the motor spun and had to be replaced. took it on a 950 mile trip and had a blast. towed well and made our week so enjoyable. beats the tent we spent 14years in !!!

Congrats. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed our 2017 XLite 21RBS. Not sure what the differences are, but I donít think much. Perfect camper for the DW and I. Guess thatís why they call it a couples camper. Duh.

Bamabox: We had a new 2017 21 RBS. We now have a 2019 22RBS Eastern version. Some differences: no drawers at the foot of the bed on the backside of the sink, no utensil drawer on the right side of stove, two piece cover for sinks, stove top cover, rounded shower enclosure, bigger dinette window that slides open instead of the crank opener, 30 lb propane tanks, electric stabilizers, inCommand control, front window (Eastern), electric tank heaters, and maybe a couple others. I won't give my opinion on the changes, so as to not start a slagging contest. It was recommended that we use stabilizer stands for the slide, so I do. They are a simple stand made with threaded rod, a nut with a lever welded on, a pipe with a small base.

We would have been satisfied to keep our 21RBS, but ran into a structural problem. Keystone and the dealer got together and offered us a new 2019 22RBSE for a reasonable sum, so here we are!

I should also say that we are quite happy with our trailer.

Just out of curiosity, what was the reasoning for the srsbikizer under the slide? Will it get out of joint if not supported?

I was always told to never use stabilizers under the slides - that this can cause serious structural issues if the trailer should settle more than the slide stabilizers do.

Rack and pinion slide mechanism. I don't use them long term, just campground. No opinion on this, just do what the dealership suggested.

Curious as to what your structural problem was with the 21RBS. Whenever I hear something like that, it makes me think design flaw, so of course iím Interested as to what it was. And guessing it was pretty significant to make Keystone and the Dealer get you out of it for safety sake I assume. Thanks.

Bamabox: Simply put, the floor was giving out. PM me if you want a more detailed description. The original thread went south.

I also have a Titan SV 4X4. Do you feel you have plenty of truck to tow the
22 RBS? I was looking at the similar model in the Passport, but really like the King Bed in the Cougar, and was just curious.

Thanks

Hey LDM, I pull our 22 with a 2012 Tundra 5.7L 4wd, I was hoping to replace it with a Dodge or Chevy diesel but after our 3rd trip can't justify the reason. The Tundra did an excellent job and I'm really happy with it's performance. Wish the gas tank larger but that's okay. We to chose the Cougar not only for the king size bed but some of the other items like the 8 cu ft refer, 2" hitch ,15k a/c and some other details. besides I think the interior and exterior looks really good. I think you will be surprised how well the Titan will work pulling your 22, you shouldn't have any problems, good choice. Oh we also went with a Anderson Hitch , works great also.
