My Puma 297RLSS review so far

I have only 4 days camping and 1000 miles towing, but here are my thoughts so far. We never got to see this before ordering. Only pics

The only problem I have found so far is the entry door is kinda stiff to open/close. I never opened or closed it....someone else did. My bad. There is no catch deal on the outside so maybe it is made that way.

Positive things. We like the layout. Ok counter space. 8 ft refrigerator seems to get cold pretty fast. Outside pass through storage is much bigger than I figured. The solid surface counters are real(seemingly) granite. The cabinets are all one color(worried about that). It has glass front upper cabinet doors....surprise. No nightstands only table deals(DW wife loves) I could push or pull. Awning is huge...20 ft and seems deeper. I like the electric stabilizer jack deals. JT strong arms seem to help. I am still thinking.

Equipment likes. Coleman a/c units....I consider this an upgrade. Progressive dynamics converter...happy to see. Fridge works good. Still thinking.

Would change if I could. Have to turn recliners to run in slide. Were you thinking? DVD player is iffy. Typical. Not much storage around TV for games and such. Commode is a little close to wall. Low profile front a/c would have been more appealing.

Stuff must do. Add sewer hose storage. Already have...cannibalized from old trailer. E M S I just need to install. Do final seal inspection. Check and clean all hidden areas. Lube all stuff including bearings. Wash and wax....1000 miles worth of bugs. Customize inside more to our personalities. I will think of more.

Glad to hear the good review, we have a Puma 5er TH on order, makes me feel a little more optimistic on it's arrival.
