You will love it. We've had our 260 just over a year now. Easy to tow and really easy to maneuver. All the bells and whistles puts a whole new spin on glamping

We've had our new 260 almost a year (5/2013). It's driving us nuts waiting to use it again. Our first season in it was great. One of the main problems with ours was the underside of the floor of the slide out. In July of last summer I noticed a gouge while I was under the camper. I looked with a flashlight and noticed a screw had poked up and dug in to the underside every time we set up. It dug into the wood pretty good. I also noticed another one starting to dig in. Later I noticed a bump under the rubber roof of the slideout. In the mean time I was writing all this down so I wouldn't forget which also included an unlockable latch on the drivers side storage door where all the hookups are. At the end of the season my dealer took care of all the problems. They actually removed the slide out to back out the problem screws and replace them. The bubble under the roof material was a piece of trimmed plastic.....from the factory. I thought, no way the guy doing the roof didn't notice that. A simple sweep of the roof before laying down the rubber would have taken care of that. Anyway, my dealer has been great, had the camper about a week and everything looks and works great. Oh, one more thing, (CAUTION!) be careful of the weighty wood (Cherry) insert on the fridge door. There's two crappy dowels holding it in place (on the bottom) under a piece of plastic trim. The dowels let go and the plastic trim was the only thing holding the cherry insert in place. My wife found out the hard way when she opened the fridge door and it slid down onto her foot. Bruised, I took her to the doc to make sure those little bones on the top of her foot weren't broken. I used two short heavy duty screws in place of the dowels to hold it in place. I'm happy with the camper so far but some of the short cuts that were taken during assembly have me wondering what else I should expect down the road. Considering the price paid, some things on my list shouldn't have happened in the first place.

My pleasure. I hope I didn't have you doubting your purchase. There's always things that need fixing. I expected a few problems, especially with all the movement and vibration. As long as the dealer/manufacturer takes care of it without any BS, I'm happy. The only drawback is my dealer is over an hour away so if the problem can wait till season's end, so be it. The fridge door thing, I did a search and I'm not the only one. Has anyone had their fridge panel slide off onto the floor (new 2012 Cougar 29BHS)? [Archive] - Keystone RV Forums I don't blame Prime Time for that one. Anyway, get some variable size Torx and Square (Robertson) screw drives for your tool box if you don't already have them. You'll be needing them to tighten things up after a few trips, put screens in your heater vents, upgrade stereo components , etc.
