Let's hear from Cougar owners or any Keystone owners

Keystone owners seem to be a quiet lot. Not only here but on the Keystone owners website as well. Is no one enjoying their unit or is everyone too busy having fun?
Let's hear the good and bad as we can help each other out that way.
My wife and I are any-timers 3 seasons. We generally stay home at the beach during summer and are ready to go any time school is in session.

We used to have a 2003 Cougar 281EFS (Bunk model 5th wheel). That is the camper we traded in for our Axis:


There used to be a very active Keystone Forum (I think it was keystonecamping.com or something like that--don't remember now). I was as active, if not more, there than I am here (was on so much that they made me an admin). It was a very active site for Keystone owners. I've kept up with some of my fellow admins from there the past few years via e-mail. None of us were given any warning about the impending demise of the site.

Then one day the site just up and vanished; completely disappeared (this was before Thor acquired the Keystone brand). Since then I don't think there really has been a definitive Keystone forum site which may explain the lack of owners.

We were very happy with our Cougar--enough to keep it for over 10 years. Had very little trouble with it and very few issues when we first picked it up.

We just got tired of the combo being so large (over 40ft going down the road as you see in the above pic). My wife was afraid to drive the combo. She drives the Axis around like its nothing (even when pulling a car which puts us close to the length of the truck+5er..go figure ! LOL). She just feels safer driving around the Axis.


Have you checked to see if there are many Keystone owners on irv2?

Smile 2016 Cougar Here

We have a 2016 Cougar 1/2 ton series 277RLSWE that we purchased used 4 months ago. We are very happy with it so far. The Keystone Owners forum has a lot of traffic. We use to belong to the Hurricane Forum and I just found this Forum today. Did not know that Thor had a keystone Forum Before today.

2004 Keystone Cougar owner here

The wife and I just purchased a 2004 Cougar 304BHS travel trailer. It's our first RV. After sitting in the driveway as the remnants of hurricane Florence passed thru, we went outside to get to loading up for a trip this Wednesday, only to find a leak in the driver's side "shirt closet" in the master bedroom. Looks like I'll be busy tomorrow, locating/fixing said leak.

Most likely leak is where the cap meets the roof or one of the marker lights on the cap. Leaks can be tough to find.

With 2 days to fix it before our trip, I'm wondering if Rustoleum "LeakSeal" or Phil Swift's ubiquitous "Flex Seal" sprays will do the job. Any thoughts? Thanks a million!

I used the Flex Seal spray to fill in the cutout behind our taillights on the motorhome. Worked great.
