Keystone Cougar Lite 29 RLI 5th wheel

My wife has finally settled on what she wants (will settle for?)
So we are looking at the Keystone Cougar Lite 29 RLI 5th wheel trailer.

Anyone on the forum own one? Opinions? Comments?

I previously had a 2013 Keystone Cougar 280RLS and loved it. The quality and dependability was far greater than my current Thor product.

We had a Cougar 281EFS 5th wheel before our Axis. I would say it was about equal the Axis in quality but that was a 2002 vintage well before Keystone was part of Thor.

Had it for about 12 years or so (had to replace the vents, and a window over the years).

Love it so far. Pulls great

Short list:
Don't buy from Camping World - warranty work is last on there list. Couldn't get me in for AC work for a month and a half....

Local dealer fixed it under dometic warranty.

On site techs won't do work for Keystone because they don't pay enough

Add the front AC. One will not cool it enough in hot weather!!

Front AC requires the filter to be cleaned weekly. The angle doesn't allow much condensation in the pan so it will drip inside if not very clean.

Don't expect the black tank gauge to work long (no surprise).

Other than that. It's been good to go.

I would add the slide toppers if I had to do it all over. Less cleaning and provides some shade over the slides for hot weather.
