We have ordered a 25RS and are waiting for delivery. Will be happy to tell you how we like it if we can stop using it long enough for a quick note.

Traded in or Mini Lite 1809S this spring for 2013 25RS. Wife and I love it! Tons of room and storage. Who needs a slide!! Had to upgrade TV from short wheelbase 2003 GMC 1/2T standard cab short bed as Puma tended to be the tail that wagged the dog in crosswinds. Now towing with 2007 F 150 SuperCab and tows great!

We picked up our Puma 25rs about 4 weeks ago, took it to a local place to try it out for 2 nights. We had a blast, perfect for two. Going again for another close to home trip this weekend. Don't hesitate.

We love our Puma 25RS. I have not found a place yet that I can't back it into. We just got back last weekend from a trip to Fort Mountain State Park near Chatsworth, GA. It was our longest trip so far this year. Last year we went to Tybee Island, GA for a week. I pull with a short wheelbase Silverado with a 5.3 engine, have a ProSeries WDH with a SC and then I installed the brackets for a friction sway bar which I use also.

Great

This sounds great. We are sticking close to home until we get all the details ironed out

My experience with our Puma 25RS. It is a 2009 model, we traded in our Pop up for it last January a year ago. We bought it at a dealer not far from here, so it was close. I started going over it to get familiar with everything, sort of planning how to do things. I opened up all the access panels, vacuumed out the areas and to see what was in there. I still get saw dust from the outside access for the fridge. I crawled under mine and looked at everything from the tongue to the tail light. I had to redo some wiring because the tape that was holding it up and given way. I used the plastic convex tubing to cover most all of it. I then used wire tires and support clamps that I had to keep it up off of the metal where it may rub. In the front I looked at the hoses for the propane and made sure they would not rub. In doing this I sort of became aware where everything was. We love our trailer, getting ready for another trip next week.

Still loving our 25rs. We have camped in it 3 times. Spent two days at Ft Fisher, NC two weeks ago. We didn't forget anything this time. Unfortunately the new "made in America" drinking water hose sprouted a leak. Off to Walmart. They have saved us a couple of times now. Headed to Jordan Lake soon!

The 25rs is a great camper. We just picked up our 2nd one. (our 2013 was totaled in a car crash. We now have a 2014) One problem is there is a lump of something underneath the rubber roof. Our 2013 had the same thing only worse. We asked Puma to be sure and clean the roof off before putting on the rubber. They said they would. This would not be a problem. The dealer said its guaranteed not to leak. The other problem is with the tires from Westlake. We've had 2 tires fail in 3 days with a bubble on the sidewall and the bead coming out of the rim. Puma replaced the first tire with a new tire and rim mailed to me. I had to buy a tire to replace the spare. Still waiting for Westlake (from Lionshead Tire and Wheel) to reinburse me for the total cost. Otherwise we love the camper.

We bought out 25rs the end if 2013. So far we gave not gad a single problem. Not even a factory defect. There are two of us, it's a perfect fit. The kitchen and bathroom, and so much storage we don't even need all of it. It's our first camper ever, so I have nothing to compare it to. Hope you are happy with your purchase if you get one. We are very happy.
