Hi Everyone,

I'm recently acquired(2 weeks) a 2013 Keystone Laredo 324RL fifth wheel. I upgraded from a TT after my family and I outgrew our Jayco Kiwi. I hope to learn a lot from you experienced rvers on this forum. Please let me know if there are any potential problems I should be aware of regarding this model trailer. Even though I did quite a bit of research prior to purchasing this model, there is nothing like first hand experience from existing users. Since I purchased it at the end of camping season, I won't be able to take the maiden voyage till next year.

Here are some of the I upgrades I thinking of doing before next year.

1. Upgrade my OEM towmax tires to michelin xps ribs.(these are expensive) - I'm definitely doing this one.

2. add timberlen suspension to my truck - probably

3. adding a blue ox bed saver - maybe

Hello and welcome to the group! Putting new Michelins on your Laredo, even though it is a costly upgrade, is a wise move. You'll be happy that you did.
Hope you have many enjoyable and trouble-free trips next camping season. The wait will be worth it.

fendix,

Welcome to the forum. You'll find a wealth of information on each of the mods you're considering. Use the search feature (the sixth section along the top blue bar) and type in Timbren, Maxxis, Michelin, Towmaster, Bedsaver and you'll find enough member supplied data to answer most of your questions and to help guide you to prioritize your additional mods.

Good luck with your RV. We are in northern Michigan, so like us, I'm sure you're about to the stage of "pink stuff" so spring can't get here soon enough.

:wlcm: fendix to the forum and congratulations on the the TT. The tires are one of the most important things on a TT and you are definitely thinking right on replacing the Tomax in my opinion, other than that enjoy it when you get the chance. Happy Future Camping ...............Ron

Welcome from a fellow Minnesotan, you will find a ton of people on here that will help you with anything and there is no such thing as a stupid question so don't be afraid to ask, if you don't mind where did you buy your new rig from I live in the north metro and I too purchased ours new less than a year ago and it's been a blast but it went by way too fast!

Thanks for the welcome. I purchased a Pleasureland RV in St. Cloud. I would say they went out of their way to make this purchase easy for me... hopefully it will stay that way .. at least through the warranty stage.
