Traded TT for a 5th Wheel
« on: February 26, 2018, 11:08:06 AM »
After a 900 Mile trip and a extended stay to beat the winter cold and snow, we decided that the small Forest River EVO T2360 was not suitable for our use. We traded it off and got a Keystone Cougar 277RLSWE 5th Wheel. Bigger slide and more space and storage for us to live in for extended stays 3 or more months. I wrote a review of the FR EVO 2360 which are some of the reasons for the change. here is a link to the article that I wrote. https://rvbloggers.wordpress.com/2018/02/09/review-of-forest-river-evo-t2360-travel-trailer/
Will post more about 5th wheel later.

Thatís an informative review - thanks for posting it.  Iíve sometimes thought about switching from my TT to a 5th wheel, but with 20% of the fiverís weight on my truckís rear axle, by the time I add in the weight of the hitch and all the stuff I carry, the fivers that most interest me would put me over on my rear axle weight rating.  So far.

I like the floorplan of your 277RLSWE. As you get some experience with it, Iíll be interested in your impressions.
