18 • RV PRO • November 2019 rv-pro.com O P E N H O U S E C O V E R A G E Keystone Cougar 364BHL Cougar's newest floorplan might be considered the ultimate full-timer's coach for someone who occa- sionally wants to have guests over for the weekend. By far, Cougar 364BHL's most striking feature is the guest room at the back of the fifth wheel. This guest room isn't the standard kids' fare with a handful of twin beds and a video game setup. 364BHL takes a more adult or family-oriented approach to the room with a pair of 54-by-74 beds situated one above the other at a 90-degree angle. A sturdy ladder solidly attached to the wall of the top bunk allows access to the upper bed. There is a separate outdoor entry just off the back bedroom that leads to a half bath, so the extra bedroom can be closed off from the rest of the coach with the shut of a door. "This thing has been a huge success for us right out of the gate," says Product Manager Matt Christensen. "I can't believe nobody's ever done this before." Below the bedroom, an outdoor kitchen featuring a Capital Grille and mini refrigerator is located. The main bedroom is located at the front over the tongue, separated from the extra room by a sizeable living room/kitchen area featuring a sizeable island, booth dinette and 60-inch sleeper sofa or optional theater seating. At the front end of the kitchen, a large double-door pantry is situated. The queen bed is easily walked around and has night stands on either side with space and outlets to accommodate CPAP machines. There also is a front windshield and wardrobe in the bedroom and linen closet in the full bathroom. The full bathroom with a radius shower also is atop the steps. A large, unobstructed pass-through storage area is located below the main bedroom outside of the coach. Cougar 364BHL is 39 feet, 3 inches long and has a dry weight of 11,225 pounds. It is prewired and prepped for solar. "The versatility of that extra loft – that's what separates this from everything else," Christensen says. "And in this price cat- egory and this weight, it is easily three-quarter ton towable." The MSRP is $61,884. What impressed RV PRO: Bunkhouse models and lofts have been all the rage in the RV industry over the past two or three years, so it was probably only a matter of time before someone figured out a way to combine the two. Keystone's designers came up with a way to do it that not only is functional but also is attractive, with two king-sized beds at the opposite end of the coach from the main bedroom. The Keystone Cougar 364BHL not only has a spacious bedroom at the front of the fifth wheel, but also has quarters in the rear, with 54-by-74 bunk beds at an angle from each other.
