Pumas advertised lengths are usually correct (or close). The model numbers mean nothing as far as length.

The outside shower is like most outside RV showers Its hot & cold water & a shower head on a hose. Like alot of the inside showers (as far as to plumbing).

If you are asking if the back garage is water proof. No toyhauler garage is. I would not go crazy with a hose or pressure washer. The floors of toyhaulers are usually a hard rubber type material & diamond plate sides to about a couple feet the seams where the two meet are just caulked. Not sure about the tiedown areas if they are calked but I doubt it. Will some mud or wet ATVs hurt it no.

My fence has a 14' gate going through at an angle is fine but you have to be careful. Our road is a country road & the gate is only 10-15 ft or so off the road so pulling in is tight . When we had a 26' it was much easier. I have another issue my truck is a 2 wheel drive & where I park the treailer is down hill slightly. I it has rained much the trailer stays where it is as the truck won't climb the hill on wet grass with any trailer behind it.

I did not go with the fuel station as we carry an electric golf car & did not get the generator as we do not boondock. Our friends have one in a different brand toyhauler & now it will not start due to not being run.

Good Luck

Window seal

After almost two years of really satisfied camping in our 351, I noticed what appeared to be water infiltration under the entrance side window in the garage. Upon inspection I discovered the factory never sealed the top of the window. Imagine my surprise. I really thought I had inspected our unit top to bottom on more than one occasion and never noticed the caulking had not been installed? It is weird because they sealed the sides and the bottom of the window but not the top? No way!
Now what? I did purchase the 2nd year warranty through Forest River. I will have to check that warranty but the thought of having to strip and replace the paper off that wall does not sit well.
Anyway, inspect your units again because I still cannot believe I missed that and it took water damage to find it. Easy to spot too once I looked.
Happy Holidays to All!

Ladder

Has anyone mounted a universal or other type ladder on your 351? I am thinking of doing this and am looking for ideas.
Thanks
HO HO HO... Merry Christmas!

Have you checked one out with the factory installed ladder? May give you some ideas. It was a $120 option, I did spec it on mine, but the trailer isn't in yet. I can grab pics when it comes in if you want, should be here in the next week or two.


Found a pic online, but it doesn't show much detail

I am kinda interested if there are any out there who did not have the factory mount but mounted a aftermarket one on their own. I was thinking of mounting one off the back ramp because of the structure but of course it needs to be easily removable by using the ladder itself to reach the top pins. That is my dilemma. I have a few ideas to make my own mounting system but a few more ideas would be nice.
Thanks

I know the last post is going on 6 months old but, yes to answer rabraz' question, I too am considering some type of under chassis storage but haven't found anything suitable yet. I just purchased mine a few weeks ago. 2015 with anniversary package.

I AM A MORON!!!


Can someone post a pic of the limit switch for the beds in the garage? I have looked at the rear vertical rails several times and see no limit switch to relocate in a higher position.........

If you will search "puma unleashed modifications" on here, on page two there is some discussion about this. Sorry I don't know how to post link in here for you.
