Keystone Cougar 318SAB

It was time to upgrade from the truck camper as we realized that we wanted to do longer trips and bring our dogs with us occaisionally. We traded our palomino maverick truck camper for a 2010 Keystone Cougar 318SAB. We purchased it through RV Connections in Panama City, Florida. Searching numerous dealers and looking at many different types of RV's at local dealerships and the internet, they had just what we wanted at the best deal possible.

     We decided to take a couple weeks vacation and after we picked up our new roomy fifth wheel, went on to Crystal River Florida. It was bitter sweet saying goodbye to our littleTC as we had many fond memories in it but were thrilled with the thoughts of possibilities our Cougar would have waiting in store for us. It was roomy and Keystone did an awesome job in the layout of the RV giving us all the ammenities and storage room we needed. 

     The bedroom was nice with a queen sized bed with some storage underneath. It had a little bench at the foot of the bed with a removable lid to store blankets. The roof slanted towards the closet so Jerry had to duck some to get in and it just had enough space for our clothes, shoes, and a vacuum cleaner. The bathroom was roomy enough but the shower was a bit awkward to maneuver in. I felt like the shower was trying to drowned me as I could not escape the flow, being so short. A wonderful sound system, seperated into 3 parts, the living room, bedroom, and outside which could all be controlled from the receiver. The living room was furnished with a 32" TV and we brought our 32" TV from home and placed it on the built-in dresser. There was a desk in the living room but not functional for right-handed people so we stored our big dogs crate under it. We removed a chair and set up a wood card table and office chair for Jerry to use for work. I used the dinette for my office.

     I had plenty of kitchen storage, and counter space was added with a fold down extension. I didn't care for lighting the oven but we had plenty of room to make a complete Christmas day dinner. An 8 cubic foot refrigerator was plenty room for food and drinks. The basement was nice to store our extra things and outdoor furnishings. There was one 15.0BTU air conditioner which was fine except when we were in the south but we had a fantastic fan in the bedroom that helped keep it comfortable. It came with Polar Package Plus.

    I would highly recommend this camper for anyone wanting a wonderful fifth wheel with quality workmanship, interior comfort, style, and a home-like experience! Sometimes I still miss it.
