What a coincidence... our last trailer was a High Country 343RL... Liked it a lot except for the dreaded front cap fade and decal peel... Keystone would stand behind it on some but not all... We were part of the NOT ALL crowd. Took a hit on trade in value because of it too.

Loved the floor plan but with the kitchen, bathroom and 3 out of 4 slides on the left side of the trailer... it was about 800 pounds heavier on the left side. Ended up upsizing the springs because they flattened out on that side.

Looks like a clear water filter canister. Sunlight will cause alge growth. Should consider changing it.

Can probably just shoot some paint on it.

We are going for 305rl, if I could find a 2016 or 2017 used I would consider that if not we will buy new this one last time. It has three slides two opposing in the back and one for King bed up on drivers side weight is 10,300 dry and pin 2230 I can go 15,500 and 3646 on my F350 PS.

I like have a room of safety margin but will be getting air bags, Rancho steering stabilizer and we generally load light and balanced but one I get it and load it going to cat scales so I know where I stand.

IMO, it's all in your expectations. On holiday weekends, I expect a raucous crowd, some level of less than stellar manners, and a whole crap-ton of people. Keep your expectations low or join in the debauchery.

Usually, camping enjoyment is what you make it.

Add alcohol and you see things you never saw before, at least in my experience. I was at TLC Memorial Day Weekend, there were 6-7 adults riding on a Golf Cart with a Dog and I think the dog was the only one not drinking.

We pulled into a campground one year on the afternoon of July 5th. There was so much fire cracker debris, it looked like there'd been a confetti parade. I don't think any of the campers had made any attempt to clean up their mess.

I was very glad I hadn't been there the night before.
