View Full Version : New to Keystone....new to RVing

Greetings all

As retirement approaches my wife and I have decided to get serious about this RVing thing.

Recently picked up a 2011 316RL Laredo with the "northern" package. Only spent one night in it so far....with a trip planned to southern Michigan in June. Meantime, I'm already tinkering with things. Plans for next week include a wet bolt kit, inverter, and a battery disconnect.

My tow vehicle is a 2005 Ford F250 4x4 Diesel. Drops a little in the back with the 5ver on, so I've got a Ride Rite airbag system on order for it.

Just another hobby to spend money on.....life is great! :D

Welcome Phil,

Congrats on the new fiver.

We have an 03' F250 and put the Firestone RideRite bags on it and our truck is always level.

We just finished a year old tour of the country and never a problem with the truck of the fiver.

Best wishes and enjoy the camping season!

Welcome Phil (& Mrs Phil) & congrats on your new Laredo,

We have the smaller model with the same rear entertainment/living area and have really enjoyed it. Good luck, when retirement finally arrives, and happy trails to you & yours!

Terri, the Chevy co-pilot [& DH Kevin] :)
