Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy hauler exterior 


Keystone says: "Are we going camping or riding? We say BOTH. Raptor has the largest bunk house bedroom in the industry that becomes a living room or garage at the touch of a button."

The garage, shown in the picture below, is full width, "with no obstructions (over 98 inches interior width). This means that the entire garage is usable for any manner of toy or just awesome storage and, as you can see, plenty of room for a 2nd HUGE living space. Whether it be for watching the game, the latest movie, or just relaxing, nothing delivers ZONE living like Raptor."

Jack SchaferSadly... don't know what to think. I'm trying to put together a buying group of 5, for a fractional purchase deal... and I'm willing to be the manager AND coordinator of the deal... my payment for that is my 20% interest. I've done this with condo's and boats, and always came out well... and everyone on a deal with me was happy. I thought this would be a good "next step" for a small fractional ownership program, but that doesn't look possible. | This is ya'll's industry. Can I make this work on a 20% basis, with 6 - maybe 8 units in invintory ??? Feedback is appreciated. JackXSchafer@Gmail.com

MikeOur initial experience with RV America in Johnstown was great; probably because we were looking at buying. During the final process of the sale we decided to purchase an extended 8 year warranty (supposedly a comparison to a "bumper to bumper"), what a waist of money this may turn out to be, considering what we have already been through in the first months of ownership! First road trip, less than 1 month old...A lemon? We took out our brand new 2015 42' Keystone Raptor on a road trip for the first time. During our trip we encountered many unexpected issues. The shower poured out water from it never being sealed, the toilet leaked around the seal ever time it was flushed, the black and grey tanks leaked, even the self leveling system wouldn't work; the center jacks wouldn't come down and pressure released from the hydrologic system made a horrifically loud banging sound every 10 minutes. As you could imagine this was not a pleasant experience and we were a little surprised as we were told before our closing that their staff does a thorough walk through and test all of these types of things to be sure there are no leaks and components are working properly! This would be the first of many lies. Unfortunately, these were just a couple of the major issues we encountered, our actual list for warranty service was much longer! Okay, so it may be a lemon but where is the support from the service department? RV America strives on customer service and satisfaction, not our experience! Once we returned from our trip we took it into RV America in Johnstown; this was at the end of October. The service department seemed to understand and empathize with us for our frustration; much to our surprise this too was another lie! To date; January 17th; almost 4 months later we still do not have the warranty service repairs complete and RV America still has our brand new Toy Hauler that we were only able to use once! They take no responsibility or ownership, just one lie after another, pointing the finger at others along the way. Throughout the months leading to our review today, we have been promised multiple completion dates. We were told each time a different reason as to why they had not been able to satisfy their committed deadline to us. These excuses ranged from having to get approval on warranty items, not having parts in stock, the holidays, even placing blame and pointing the finger at the Keystone manufacturer! The latest is they are still trying to recreate some of the issues we experienced to rule out user error. So are we going to have to prove we aren't ignorant in order for these warranty service items to get done? We have actually been RV's for 20+ years! We have now been given a projected completion date for the middle of February. At this point we are not confident this will truly happen. One thing we do know is that our season is about to begin again and we have NO Toy Hauler. What would we have done if we were year round RV's or it was prime season for us? As mentioned at the beginning we purchased a 8 year warranty, is this what we are to expect each and every time it is taken in for warranty service? Even if it is a lemon they sold us, wouldn't the right thing to do be to stand behind the Keystone manufacture and provide the level of service RV America initially showed us during the buying process? 4 months and still waiting to get warranty service done is unacceptable to begin with but even more unacceptable to a family that just bought a brand new Keystone Raptor in September 2014, used it once only to have to take in for service in October 2014; now January 2015 and NOTHING! Aside from the above service experience, we also have our 2007 Winnebago on RV Americas lot for sale by consignment. It has been up there since September 2014. We have not had any communication from them in regard to how things are going. The price is listed at what they recommended. We were told our RV would also be listed by them show in the RV Trader as well as their site. We see nothing listed in RV trader and their site doesn't do our Winnebago justice. Although we were told they would be detailing our RV , they did not. This is now reflected in the poor pictures they have posted of our RV on their web site. The recommended selling price isn't even listed on their website! Overall, we are no where near satisfied with RV America Johnstown or warranty service. We would not refer or recommend their services! Please do not be fooled by their fancy show room, large amount of inventory or even your sales experience... Once the deal is done RV America in Johnstown doesn't care on bit about their customers! Don't make the same mistake we did, do your research and read the other negative reviews that are out there too!
MIKEHOT WATER TANK CAP WONT COME OFF. ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM.
chief916Not sure this site is active cause there seems to be very little activity on it but I will throw this out there for anyone to comment on. I've been pulling my Raptor 300MP using an Anderson 3225 hitch. Scary to look at but works like a dream and I've pulled at speeds up 65 mph in a passing situation. Anybody else out there using this hitch? It works by clamping down on my goose neck ball.
chief916Just bought a 2010 300MP....love it. But can anyone tell me how to determine what bulbs are used for the front landing lights?? Mine were corroded and I had to destroy the bulbs to get them out.
katrinabought a 2012 300mp the motor has gone out wont come off the truck, the out side cover are broke and the interior is comming unstitched only had it 2 months does any one else have problems with there lifts? need a bigger motor?
MikeI have a 2006 model 3712 tripple axle and I keep loosing a rear wheel while driving. The axle placement checked fine. Is anyone else having this problem?
charliei have a new 2010 rapter toy hauler 30 ft. used it three times. and not into camping. listed for 56,ooo.oo paid 48,000.oo seling it for 34,000.00 comes with a reese 16k hitch and it is realy nice
RickTo Bob - We have a 06 raptor installed a standard knife switch to isolate battery - solved problem.
Carol KingI Have a 2008 Raptor my trailer leaks, refrigerator freezes everything, stove doesn't work right,and the toliet broke, and the generator carburetor was no good. Only been able to get the carb. and toliet fixed, what is one to do to get this fixed.
Bob WWe're having a problem with our batterys. Within a day our batterys with a full charge are completely dead. This is when the trailer is setting with nothing on except the lights on the stero. Dealer has checked the inverter and tested the amps in the fuse box. They can't figure it out.
ChuckThe only thing I don't like are the jacks I have had three sets put on mine and out at the dunes I still have to push the button and use the hand crank to help it need two people to raise it up one to push the button and one to crank
cabel joneJeep and Mopar have teamed up to introduce a new pair of Jeep-branded off-road camping trailers that will be offered for sale in the U.S. starting this August. The designs of both the entry-level Trail Edition model and the Extreme Trail Edition are inspired by the Wrangler sharing many parts with the actual model including tail lights, wheels, fender flares and badges. Those are nice trucks for open country...It would'nt be able to drive on ANY of the tight off road trails I drive on in the Sierra's!
SeanRI love this fifth wheel! The workmanship is first class, and the fit and finish are excellent. I have the 300MP, there is plenty of space for two couples and my F-235 pulls it just fine. I only have one complaint, where the heck do I put the removable outside ladder? It doesn't fit anywhere inside the coach once the slide outs are in and the bikes are loaded in the cargo area. It is too long to go anywhere but angled across the floor. I am thinking about sawing the first step off of it so it will fit.
Ronny BAmazing. This is the best seller and I can see why. This is perfect for my family and the kids (and my) toys.
Greg BJust purchased a Raptor Velocity 380LEV nice so far. Love the zone living also known as the MAN CAVE. Had a 07 Everest340B that was great. A Good dealer will make the experience. Just miss the King size bed.
Brian SI had an '06 Raptor that I loved, just bought an '09 Velocity 380. From what I can tell the quality has gone downhill. I have a list so long of things wrong I want my old one back.
Ken HLike Keystone. Bought a 2008 cougar 5th wheel 276. Excellent quality in the RV and have had only a couple of minor problems. I guess a lot depends on the dealer it was purchased from.
KearenI've had 2 keystones with good experience. Good trailers and they stand by their warranty.
RobynWe have a 2005 Keystone Hornet and have had no problems with it. Towed it to Florida 2 times, and made shorter trips other places. Love the layout. The sofa & kitchen table are in the slide. The slide is only in front of the TV -- which makes packing and unpacking easy -- cause the slide can be in to pack it! We love it, and wouldn't trade it -- we'd just love to be able to use it more often and work less! Love Keystone. Based upon your experiences, would you buy one of this manufacturer's RVs again?: Yes. Rating: 5/5.
Matt KennyWe bought a 2009 with no regrets. Love it. Changed our lifestyle, it's awsome
kenny 2145I've had 2 Keystone travel trailers. Both of them have had the usual range of problems but the dealers and Keystone all gave me good service. I would definitely buy another Keystone. I like the ultralite concept and like the idea of not needing a huge truck to pull a reasonably sized trailer.
