rv-pro.com September 2018 • RV PRO • 17 Keystone Cougar All Cougars will now offer Keystone's iN-Command Control System, a new Climate-guard protection package and MORryde's Step Above. In order to give customers the most flexibility, Cougar has replaced the fold-down bike rack with a 2-inch receiver, which has the added benefit of reducing the length of the Cougar line, according to Product Manager Matt Christensen. Dealers will see three new full-size fifth wheel floorplans at this year's Open House. The fully contented 315RLS was designed to meet the demand for shorter fifth wheels that give the owners greater access to national parks and campgrounds. "At 35 feet, 6 inches, and 10,460 pounds, this couples' coach offers a full array of upgraded options including three slide-outs, a king-size bed, 12-cubic-foot refrigerator, residential microwave, automatic leveling and a standout kitchen," Christensen says. Cougar delivers next-level mid-deck master suites with the new 362 RKS and 361 RLW floorplans. Both models feature a large master suite and Keystone's patent-pending windshield design. The master bath also has been redesigned to increase the countertop space and now offers dual entries into the hallway and bedroom. Lastly, these two floorplans include stackable washer-dryer prep. Meanwhile, the big news in Cougar travel trailers is that all of the front caps have been redesigned to mimic Cougar's painted fifth wheel caps. Cougar's patent-pending windshield also has been introduced in eight of 11 Cougar travel trailer floorplans. The 361 RLW offers a rear living area with picture windows on the patio side and a large entertainment center opposite. The bedroom features three floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, two dressers, a large window with lots of natural daylight and Cou- gar's standard king-size bed. Keystone Laredo, Hideout Keystone has given Laredo a new exterior and interior look for 2019. Product Manager Jeff Wagner is encouraging dealers to take a close look at the 250BH floorplan, Laredo's only half-ton truck or full-size SUV towable bunkhouse model. This model comes standard with a 20-foot exterior patio awning and outside kitchen. Separately, Hideout has 11 new models, two redesigns and a total interior makeover for 2019. Hideout is revisiting its past and bringing back a toy hauler model for its luxury travel trailer segment. This new model is aggressively priced for those first-time buyers looking to get into the RV lifestyle, according to Product Manager Joe Luther. The large garage will include the Happijac Bunk system and will be able to house big toys such as a golf cart. Hideout has developed two new bunk models for the first-time buyers looking for a value, feature-rich fifth wheel. The 295BHS is the perfect bunk model at a great price. The 330MBS is a favorite with the mid-bunk trending in the industry right now. Luther says Hideout also has created two game-changing floorplans for its Mini segment, both including slides. The 176LHS and 179LHS models include a 6-cubic-foot refriger- ator and a 13.5K AC system standard. The 338LHS floorplan is a first for the brand including a bathroom and a half. The 39/391FLFT in the Hideout Retreat line is a spinoff of the brand's No. 1-selling loft floorplan. This new model has a double loft layout that provides ample sleeping and storage space. "The loft is such a hot product for Hideout they wanted to expand on that concept and meet the demand for those who need the extra space," Luther adds. Keystone's Sprinter Sprinter Product Manager Jonathan Gust says the brand will be highlighting three floorplans at Open House. The 27FWML is the shortest fifth wheel in its class with a king bed slide, full door pantry, washer/dryer prep and outdoor conve- nience center bringing high-end features to the economical fifth wheel market. The 330KBS Limited travel trailer is designed for customers who want a master bed/bath suite. This unit includes a twin sink, king bed slide, ample storage, private entry into the bedroom and washer/dryer prep. The kitchen features two refrig- erators, generous countertop space and a floor-to-ceiling pantry. "Mid-bunk fifth wheels have been the hot trend over the last three years because they offer a bunk/office area without losing a well-portioned living space," says Gust. "The 31FWMB by Sprinter provides just that, but at a price much less than any competitor." Keystone Fuzion/Impact Fuzion is unveiling the all-new 410 floorplan that meets the demand for an all-purpose couples' coach, says Jeremiah Dumka, product manager. "The bonus room provides a space for your toys or extra living space letting you take it all without leaving anything behind," he says. "The concept of using the toy hauler garage in many different ways is trending in the market and that's how the Fuzion 410 was born." Meanwhile, Impact's popular 311 floorplan received a facelift for a better TV viewing angle. It was also shortened to 35 feet to meet the demands of state park accessibility. Keystone's Bullet/Premier Bullet will introduce two new floorplans for 2019. The 290BHS features a TV viewing angle that occupants can see from the bunks as well as from the sofa and dinette. Other fea- tures include a second entry to the bathroom, outdoor kitchen and a dry weight under 6,000 pounds, according to Nick Sweazy, product manager. The other new floorplan, the single-axle Bullet Crossfire 1700BH, is a compact, lightweight bunkhouse model and the lightest 8-foot-wide bunkhouse on the market, he says. Premier is unveiling the 26UDPR, a lightweight couples' coach with a U-shaped dinette, large walk-thru bathroom and a second entry to the bedroom. continues on page 20
