Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerJR2013 keystone outback 312 BH, tons of build quality issues, too much to list. Spent more time getting fixed by me or dealer the first two years than my old 2005 coachmen. Had to fight Keystone on many issues and they did not care. STAY AWAY

Re: Keystone Passport travel trailersjHave a 2010 Keystone Passport 288. Few fixable problems, but after 5 years, the Passport Decals are all falling off. So a 5 year old trailer looks like crap. Talked with Rv Dealer and Keystone... They said NOTHING they could do...only a one year warranty... NOW, who would buy a Trailer , knowing the decals would fall off 5 years later, and then be told sorry but so sad but to bad... So, no more Keystone Trailers to bought by me...
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelmuttKamloops..... i have a cougar that had the same problem , not enough clearance... i took it to a welding shop and added 4 inch tubeing to the frame and attached the spring shackles to it... worked great for clearance , BUT it adds a 4 inch drop when u walk down the steps..we pull it with a f350 4x4
Re: Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy haulerJack 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

Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerBPHas anyone purchased a Outback 310TB (I believe 2015 is the first year; this is a toy hauler)? I have seen many negative comments about Keystone (some have no dates so I'm not sure how relevant they are) - I love this model but don't want to buy a bad product. Any feedback is appreciated.

Re: Keystone Passport travel trailerRichard LacroixOur 2013 Passport GT shows what appears to be condensation just where the ceiling meets the side wall in the bedroom. Sometimes top half of inside wall is wet. Outside temp was 41 at the lowest, we maintain 55 inside. Anything we can do?
Re: Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy haulerMikeOur 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!
Re: Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy haulerMIKEHOT WATER TANK CAP WONT COME OFF. ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM.
Re: Keystone Bullet ultralite travel trailerC J SwansonHi. 1995 keystone. Excellent even know. 2011 Keystone 3050 BH. Yikes. Dangerous leaking propane valve and lines. Tires pop. Axels bent. Slides leak. Takes competent electricians 2 hours to diagnose problems with lights. Windows stick and gard to slide. Everything else works fine. Great layout.
Re: Keystone Bullet travel trailerDorraineMy husband and I purchased a 2015 Keystone Bullet travel trailer in July 2014. Our first trip out in August 2014, had not been quite 500 miles in it and had a blowout on the right rear tire. Our trip was low key! Good highway! No speeding! The sights we stayed at were all asphalt paved. So no rough travel! The tire blowout caused damage to the metal strips underneath around the wheel base and the black plastic pieces on the trailer around the wheel were cracked and bent. Keystone says its not their problem and the tire company will not contact me back. It is in shop for repairs and has been for 30 days. So now its October 2014. Used the trailer one time and heading into winter. Won't be using it much until next year. Not a happy camper! The trailer itself is beautiful and pulls nice but the tires that Keystone puts on them are faulty. THEY NEED TO TELL US UPON PURCHASE, BY THE WAY THESE ARE LOUSY NO GOOD TIRES AND YOU SHOULD INVEST IN A BETTER SET OF TIRES AFTER YOUR PURCHASE!
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerKevinI bought a 2011 outback with a power rear slide . The rear slide out is leaking bad, I re-caulked the rear plate but it is still leaking. Any suggestions?
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelRandyOur 2012 Montana 3402 RL living room slide leaks water all over the dining room table and couch when it rains. The seals look like they are installed correctly. I even washed it down with a water hose, trying to find the leak and no water came inside the coach. Next time it rained with the slide out, the dining room was soaked and the lamps had water leaking onto the dining room table! What's up with that? I've been all over that slide looking for something that's causing the water to come inside of the slide and I can't find a thing! By the way, I have Diamond 5 year extended warranty on the coach and they won't cover the seals leaking or the damage to the trailer. They say it's Montana's problem, but Montana says the coach is out of warranty, so have a nice day. I am so frustrated with this problem. I previously owned a Holiday Rambler 30 foot tow behind and never had any problems with it in 12 years. I wish they come back into business. I'd dump the Montana in a second!
Re: Keystone Passport travel trailer BKMy husband and I bought a 2014 Keystone Passport on 6-10-14 from Happy Trails RV in Lumberton , Texas. We took our first trip in it on 6-12-14 to New Mexico. On 6-20-14 we put our power Solera awning out,this was the third or fourth time to do so - it would not retract back in. We had to google how to see how to manually retract it. Thank goodness we were at an RV park that we got phone service. It was not simple or easy for 4 people in our mid 60's to put manually retract it with a power drill and ladder , that thank goodness the RV park let us use ! We had to bungee cord it for our trip back to Texas. This ruined an other wise great trip. Re-thinking traveling with a travel trailer for our retirement years. I will not ever buy another Keystone , solera awning or from Happy Trails RV in Lumberton , Texas. By the way, we brought Happy Trails our travel trailer on 6-30-14 with the problem awning. Finally went to pick it up 7-28-14, tried the awning before we left --they were already hooking the trailer up to the truck and I decided to try the awning, the service guy said -"oh, it works , I tried it 3 times." Told him I wanted to try it before bringing it home. It went out and WOULD NOT retract back in !!! Did the same thing it did on our trip. We told them to unhook the trailer and keep it till fixed. As of today 8-15-14 , after many calls to Keystone and Happy Trails RV, we still don't have our travel trailer. Fixing to go get it and see what we can do legally. Sad it has to come to this, it they would just take care of their customers. This is one former customer. Very disappointed in these companies customer service.
Re: Keystone Springdale travel trailerMikeWe just took our 2014 Springdale 31BBL out for its maiden voyage and had a blast. The exterior kitchen is great and there is more room in it than in mu in-laws 31 foot 5th wheel.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelKamloopsThinking of buying a 2014 Ram 3500 to pull our 3100 RL Montana. Clearance between truck box and fifth wheel is only a few inches. Will a sliding hit h and raising the king pin assembly solve this? Will fifth wheel still ride level? Has anyone raised the coach up on the axels? Can't flip the axels as springs are already above.
Re: Keystone Fuzion toy hauler travel trailerRonI have a 2010 F405 Fuzion Touring Edition II Toyhauler and it has been the worst camper I have ever had. I have had every electric motor replaced at least once. Two slide outs completely rebuilt, batteries won't last more than 30 hours with just the refrigerator on in storage for a couple days. I was on a trip in Washington in 2011 and it took Camping World 8 weeks to fix my trailer because they couldn't get the parts. And I live full time in my trailer and Keystone would not reinburst me for any food or lodging but the warrenty did cover the problems. I just replaced all 6 tires because 4 of them went flat in a trip from Texas to Alabama to Iowa. The problem looks like it is because my suspension is under weight and is broke or bent out of shape. I ordered new suspension and was told the suspension I had was for 3500 to 6000# axles and my trailer has triple 7000# axles and the gross weight is 18,500#. This thing has been nothing but a lemon, I love it but .... it is a lemon.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelWoody141I have a 2010 Montana Fifth Wheel, and need to find some of the interior trim molding for the side of the entrance door. Anyone know where I can get some of the original molding?
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerKitermanJust where is the slide out motor on a 2014, 210rs? I can't seem to find it any where.
Re: Keystone Montana 5th wheel Steve JOnesBought my 2012 Montana 3400RL new in 2012. On our first trip, had another driver flagged us down to tell us one of our tires was buging. Since then after 1700 miles I have had three additional flats or blowouts. All tires are 2010 date. I always checked tire presures before and during trip. These are Goodyear Marathon ST235-80R16 Load E. I am going to a Goodyear dealer this week as it looks like Keystone will be of no help.
Re: Keystone Bullet ultralite travel trailerGaryWe're looking for comments good or bad on a 2013 or 2014 Bullet 217RBS. We were told by the dealer that Bullet is a mid-high level trailer and a Z-1 or Zinger is low-mid level trailer.
Re: Keystone Sprinter travel trailerDonald GoodeI bought a 2014 Sprinter 320BHS. Absolutely love the layout. I had a big problem on day 2 though. I picked it up on Saturday and started messing with it on Sunday. Turned on the furnace using gas to warm up the trailer and after 20 minutes the blower fan broke two fins and made a crazy loud noise. I have the unit dropped off for repair now. But this shouldn't have happened on a brand new unit. I'm looking forward to a lot of weekend fun with this thing. Had lots of upgrades added to it.
Re: Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy hauler 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.
Re: Keystone Raptor fifth wheel toy haulerchief916Just 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.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelDanaHave owned two Montana's currently own a 2008 3450rl great floor plan I also have experienced graphic problems Burlington Graphic co gave me half and Keystone the other but is costly to have them installed I am going to attempt this on my own You have to be somewhat of a mechanic to own one of these or have a good extended warrenty
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerJim TumblinI have a one month old 310TB outback. It has been used one time spending the rest of the month in the shop. Great floor plan but lousy quality and service. Do not buy from this company.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelJim Wilson &Nancy wilsonWe bought this new in 2006,3075 rlf , have nothing but problems with it..finallgot a attorney had a little satisfaction would never recommend a keystone product,
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelDodge-ManI have a 2008 Montana 3400RL, after my 1st call to Keystone and speaking w/ them about my galley sinks piping leaking and bubbling up the "particle board" cabinet flooring, I came to the realization that I would be better off doing all my own repairs then dealing w/ Keystones "BS" ESPECIALLY when the Keystone Rep on the phone told me "Well it is a trailer-house" WTF ! ! I think everyone else on this site knows full well how much they payed for their unit, I do believe i could have found a way better "trailer-house" for 1/2 the price. I have experience just about every problem that ya'll have written about and tires are an issue, and the decals are inferior. My tow vehicle is a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 w/ a 6.9L cummins 2wh drive long-bed quad-cab, w/ upgraded tires and rims, a cat-back exhaust, and a Bully-Dog Tuner for monitoring, the only thing I would want to add is Load-Leveling airbags since the tongue weight is quite a bit on the 3400Rl once you've moved all your things in it for a long stay. I will close w/ this, ANYONE that has asked about my Montana, I have told "Look for something other than a Keystone ! !" and those that ask about my Dodge (born and raised on chevys) I have told "You'll have to pry my cold dead hands from the wheel" I bow to the makers of my Dodge truck, and I spit on Keystone ! ! ! BUT KEYSTONE DOES NOT LISTEN TO CUSTOMER FEED BACK AND DOES NOT CARE ! ! !
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelMTWe have a 2008 3400RL. We love it. But the graphics have all peeled off. Keystone sent us new graphics but will not pay to replace them. They still are sitting in storage. Has anyone had to use there spare tire? We recently had ours put on our rig at an rv dealership. We continued our trip. The person that put it on said nothing to us about any problem with the spare. But we had a serious problem with it. The lug nuts did not tighten down on the rim causing the lugs to shear off. This was a terrible mess the tire was gone it ripped the fender off. We were in a small town with no hope until we were rescued by a good Samaritan. Apparently the rim for the spare tire is to thin to fit the lugs. But Keystone said this has never happened before. They will not pay for any of the damage, but our insurance is covering everything but the spare tire rim. Be careful. Also we replaced all our tires with G rated tires a long time ago. The tires that came on this rig starting going on our first long trip but we were able to catch it before they blew. We found them at Discount Tires.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheeljudi twhere is the thermostat located
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelLester We bought a 2010 Montana 5th wheel 3400 RL. On the way to Arizona we noticed a buldge on one of the tires. Closer inspection we found out the tires were 5 years old on a new rig. I talked to a rver in thousand palms with the same trailer he had two blow outs. Check tires before you buy. We had to buy four new tires while on our vacation which took a chuck out of our vacation money.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelBillJim, in regards to your tire issue, we had 6 yr old Goodyear Marathon tires on our 5th wheel, and had one blow out on a weekend trip. Upon closer inspection, we found that the other 4 tires (including the spare which has never been on the ground) had rubber splitting, and/or broken belts. We visited the local Goodyear store in the town near where we were camping, and got 5 new tires before we returned home. Goodyear was excellent to work with us. The provided a new Goodyear Marathon tire free for the blown tire, and 50% off for the remaining tires, as well as paid in full for the damage to the side of our 5th wheel from the blown tire. We were very satisfied with the service we received. Our tire rating is sufficient for the weight of our 5th wheel however. We are not exceeding or maxing out the weight rating of the tires. We will, however, more closely inspect our tires, and replace them sooner in the future. Were our 5th wheel heavier, we would be looking at a heavier rated tire though.
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerCarrieWehave a 2004 Keystone 26rs. We love it. We have had no problems. We just purchased a new 310BHS.
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerGREG DESAUTELSSECOND TIME THE REAR SLIDE OUT BOTTOM PLASTIC CRACKED AND KEYSTONE WILL NOT WARRANTY IT, NOR WILL THEY ADMIT THEY HAVE A SERIES PROBLEM THEY CANNOT FIX. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE THEY ARE JUNK AND WARRANTY SUCKS.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelmalcolm The nose decals on my 2005 2955 were so bad, I spent two hours just removing them using a 3m eraser wheel (not heat)attached to my drill. My unit inside still looks and smells new and I installed a electric fireplace below the secretary. Looks fantastic. It is only a matter of time before the side wall graphics will have to go as some have split and shrunk in the sun. Not a good image for Keystone.
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerKLBrand new outback and each camping season have been disappointed to find the plastic under the back king slide is cracked and shattered. Keystone will not fix or repair this and I would not recomment this model or company. There is obvioulsy a major flaw with the back slide and they have taken the cheapest material for this huge slide out. But under the small dinette slide, funny there is metal under this slide.
Re: Keystone Outback travel trailerMarkWhere should I start. Problems with our 2005 Outback 23RS. 1. Micorwave quit working - They fixed it. 2. During construction they drilled a screw into the water holding tank. It held water until the screw fell out. They fixed it. 3. Furnace quit working. They fixed it. 4. Most of our decal work is peeling. They said they would fix it. 5. Flooring is cracked - They will not fix it. 6. Stitching is coming out of the sofa. - They will not fix it. 7. Cracking around the wheel well. - They will not fix it. 8. Back rail slide brackets are cracked - They will not fix it. We loved the design of the trailer when and purchased the trailer because we had heard that it was good quality. I guess that was before Keystone took over the line.
Re: Keystone Springdale travel trailerFrank Madisoni just purchased a 2010 Keystone model 287 i was impressed with this trailer over many that we looked at. this is our 3rd travel trailer and first Keystone. i think the value is very good.
Re: Keystone Montana fifth wheelLarryHotrod, I couldn't find my galley dump valve either, until I looked between the wheels of my camper. Your galley is located roughly in the same place as a 3400rl. Hope this helps.
