Anyone have any pictures of two quads fitting into the 298fqu or 27sbu models? Looking at getting another machine, but not sure how it well it will fit.

Just curious, how did you make yours out of 4x4s? I have seen the chocks for sale and I have seen some home-made jobs that look like they would burst the tires.

I did learn that if the kids quit jumping from bunk to bunk it stops some of the wobble.....

We just took ownership of a 2012 Puma 26FQ, maiden voyage will be in 2 weeks. Extremely excited and nervous considering the only other thing I have pulled was our pop up. Any other 27FQ owners out there, looking for tips or concerns with it.

Congrats stofamatiz and welcome to the Puma family. And rrscott we thought about the 295 but not ready to upgrade truck just yet. Instead ordered a 30dbss which should be off the line this week.

Picking up our new 30 KFB on Thursday. Can't wait to get it in the driveway and begin the organization and outfitting.

Congrats we really like the kfb ourselves and was going to order it instead of the dbss but was a little heavier than I wanted for a half ton.

Quick question we just got our Puma 27fq home lastnite. I knew it didn't have a radio, but there speakers looks to be pre-wired throughout camper. I see where I believe to be where the stereo would go. My question does anyone know for sure where the wires would be located and if so is there like a wiring harness like car stereo that is there.

Every time we go camping now and we walk around the campground I like to see how many Puma's are there. It is always good to see we are not alone.

Maiden voyage with the 30kfb this weekend. Couldn't be more excited. Have spent nights in there, time just sitting and thinking, adding things as they come to mind for the last two weeks. I think we are just clothes and food away from ready for our trip. Well, that and the things I didn't think of.
