Do you ever make your way as far west as BC? It seems as though most of your work is east of Winnipeg.

Nope. We are a small operation and only have about a dozen dealerships we deliver to. Red Deer Alberta is as far west as we go. A large dealership in Winnipeg makes up a huge amount of our volume.

Heading out on the road here in a few minutes actually....not sure what I'm picking up or where I'm delivering yet though.

A few thousand miles and 2 trailers later I am back.
2014 Keystone Springdale 320FWFBGL. Cool layout with the bunks up front instead if in the back. Specs are not on website yet but IIRC shipping weight was around 7900 lbs and it was approx. 32 ft long. I think that sloped nose really helped contribute to some decent mileage. Was right around 12.5 mpg from Indiana to Fargo, ND (64 MPH), it dropped once I started heading north as it always does.


All of the Keystones I've picked up have been from our storage yard but this time I went to the factory in Goshen to pick up a 2014 Keystone Mountaineer 375FLF. Wow these is some pile of trailers sitting in their yards ready to be delivered!!! I spent part of a day driving around Goshen and Keystone seems to have as many yards as Jayco does. I've hauled 3 5ers all in the 12-13,000 lb range and they are by far my favourites to tow. The front living room layout is certainly my personal favourite, somewhat similiar to the layout in my 1990 Jayco 250 Special! The larger it is the better road manners and ride it has. With the cruise set between 64-66 MPH I still got 11.91 MPG.
Shipping Weight 11965
Hitch 2270
Length 37' 10"
Height 12' 9"

Hey thanks! Thanks to this forum I've been able to keep a pretty detailed log of my experiences over the past 11 months.

2014 Coachman Chapparal 345 BHS.
Towed it approx. 1600 miles at avg of 64 mph and got 11.93 mpg I think it was. I love the large fith wheels...they tow the best and deliver the best mpg. I would take one of these over a small bumper pull any day. Lets see if anyone recognizes where this pic was taken.
Headed to Goshen, IN to pick up an awesome Puma park model Monday am......
Hitch Weight 1,900 lbs. (862 kg)
Base Weight 10,640 lbs. (4,826 kg)
Exterior Length 38' 0" (11.6 m)
Exterior Height 12' 6" (3.8 m)
