Any thoughts on small Keystone/Springdale TT's?

    We are researching tt's that meet our towing limits and have features we want. Does anyone have opinions on keystone/springdale models? We are limited to 21ft or less.

    We have a larger Keystone Cougar and very happy with it.

    I have a 25ft Springdale rear kitchen model. Built pretty well, haven't had any large surprises. Floor has less bounce than a lot of TT I was in while hunting. Bearings and brakes were easy to inspect and pack. It doesn't make all kinds of banging noises when towing like other TTs I see. Our dinette is bigger than most you see, especially my dad's MH. Nice styling inside as well. Outside, some of my larger mural stickers are falling off.

    I bought it having issues with tank levels not reading - but not uncommon for a 2005 of any make. Doors, windows, and slide are all very easy to deal with, too. Fridge is gas/electric and works good. So far, so good. I read some keystone owners are PO'ed because of warranty stuff, but seemed like smoke and mirror problems to me... It is not a Fleetwood, it was not built with oak. It is not a winne, but it is a nice midlevel rig.

    We have a Cougar too. It's 2008 and while it was well cared-for, it also appears to be well-made. We've owned ours for about a year now and have been very pleased.

    You may want to check out Keystone RV forums. http://www.keystoneforums.com/forums/index.php?
    They're a pretty active group and may have some good information. [:)C]

    I agree about them being well made. We looked at used units, of all brands, for over a year before deciding we definitely wanted a Keystone.

    Thanks I'll check it out. I did download the final walkthrough checklist and it was really good information. Also am checking out rvtrader site to learn brands and features. So far it looks like 90% of rvs will be eliminated due to tow limitation and floorplans that don't meet our needs.
