They are short queen.

We actually let our dealer keep the mattress and we put in a real queen instead. It makes for less room at the foot of the bed, but nice to stretch out when lying down.

Thanks, good to know. I could probably just use regular queen sheets, and just tuck the extra under. I also like your idea of using a full residential queen, I'll have to see how I like the one that comes with it first.

Im new here and just bought a 2013 Puma 31bhss from Labadie RV. We dealt with Bob and he was great. Hope your experience is as good as ours was. We picked up the trailer on may 8 and then got a new tow vehicle on May 11. Tow vehicle is used but new to us.

Darj,

I've been dealing with Bob as well, really easy to deal with. I was just checking out the camper I believe you purchased, it's still on their website, shows sold. Very nice looking unit.

Just talked to the driver bringing me the camper. He's 180 miles away, pretty damn excited! The Reese Goose Box hasn't shown up yet, supposed to be here tomorrow. It better be, as I have no way to hook up without it.

I have the 351, bought in January and have been out 3 times. So far we love it. Plenty of room for my family of 5. I bought it pretty much like you. There were no dealers close with one for me to see, so I had to rely on the pictures online. I traveled from VA to Ohio to get my unit.

Welcome to the Puma family...enjoy!

Thanks FandR! We have camped the last couple of nights, and love the new camper. A couple of issues though. The slide out hits the kitchen cabinets when retracted, some minor damage on the cabinet. The bedroom door has a scratch from a nail that goes all the way through the wall trim, and the edge of the kitchen counter is messed up in one place.

Other than that we love it. My F350 pulls it just fine, but I definitely know its back there. Gives me the excuse to upgrade to bigger injectors, and a chip.

get with the real experts on this forum, but i was thinking you should be able to adjust your slide on the extension/retracting apparatus underneath the slide. mine has jamb nuts that can move around if needed. my slide is about 4" from the cabinet when it is sucked in. you may look it over and see.

"get with the real experts", by that i mean someone besides me who's more experienced at this RV stuff than i am. didn't want to offend anyone with that terminology.

Weird.. We had the exact same issue with our bedroom door. A nail stuck out the inside from the trim and scratched the door. We had the dealer replace it under warranty.

As for the slide, mine came real close to the kitchen drawers but didn't hit it. Is it the edge of the table hitting the drawers when it's in?
