Wildcat Maxx 24RG- Any comments?

Shopping for trailers and this one looks pretty nice. Anyone have or had one and what did you think? Also looking at a keystone cougar.

Thanks

We own a 2014 24RG that we bought in July of this year. You will luv the 24RG, it's a terrific floor plan and the Wildcat MAXX is extremely well built, insulated, and well finished with a ton of amenities. The undercarriage is enclosed and has a heat duct so the trailer is more usable in colder weather than a basic trailer without this feature. You will also like the higher cargo caring capability due to the higher axle rating ( compare this to any other trailer of this size). Some of the "lite weight" trailers are built so lite that you cannot even walk on the roof, no such issue with the MAXX. The rear kitchen is very functional and the living room, bedroom and bathroom are well designed and very functional.
Be sure you're getting a recently manufactured unit as the early 2014's are not all LED lighting and do not have the Blue tooth fob for remotely opening the slide, operating the awning, and raising/lowering the 4 corner stabilized jacks.
So the two things of importance are:
1) Be sure you get a 2014 late year model or a 2015 with the LED/blue tooth package.
2) Don't over pay! $27K to $28K is a fair price for this trailer. If you can do better----good for you!

PS---any other specific questions, just fire away! Send me a private message if you want any other details on what I paid.

I just bought one at the Pomona, Ca. RV show - it is the new one with all LED lights, remote, etc. etc. as mentioned above. Even got the Backup Camera thrown into the deal, since its already prewired for Solar Panels, I will add those later this month.


We having upgraded from a Travel Trailer to a 5th Wheel was a no brainer....... Will be getting it some time here in Dec. 2014.


Whatever you choose Enjoy - To me the Wildcat Max is a good value with features vs. price ...................


Let us know what you decide............

The 24RG IS a travel trailer. I believe the 242RG is the 5th wheel!!
