You probably have a lot of questions about the RV industry and how RVs are made. By touring an RV manufacturing facility you will find answers to many of your questions. RV factory tours take you behind the scenes in the RV industry. There’s no better way to see firsthand how an RV is built — from start to finish. You get to watch as an RV is transformed from a bare frame to a finished product.
Founded by Cole Davis in 1996, the Keystone RV company is based in Goshen, Indiana. (Keystone's first camper was the wood-framed, aluminum-skinned Sprinter.) In 2001, Keystone was sold to Thor -- and Keystone's president eventually became the President & CEO of Thor. Today, Keystone produces all types & sizes of towable travel trailers (from ultralightweight trailers to luxurious fifth wheel trailers) and is the leading manufacturer of fifth wheel trailers. Keystone's brands include: Alpine, Avalanche, Bullet, Cougar, Cougar High Country, Cougar X-Lite, Cougar Half-Ton, Energy, Fuzion, Hideout, Laredo, Montana, Montana High Country, Montana Mountaineer, Outback, Passport, Premiere, Raptor, Residence, Retreat, Springdale, Sprinter, and Summerland. See photos and little-known facts about Keystone RVs from people who've owned one or driven one.
We recently went RV camping in the Nemadji State Forest. It’s a hot spot in northern Minnesota for RVers who happen to also be ATVers. Our destination was Garfvert Campground on Pickerel Lake just outside of Nickerson, Minnesota. Here’s what ATVing and RV camping is like there.
Keystone has come out with an RV first: a 2-story travel trailer! Who wouldn’t want to have a second floor bedroom? Actually all of the other features inside the Keystone Outback Loft make it possible to sleep LOTS of people inside!
For those on a small budget, a teardrop or other lightweight RV trailer is an excellent option.
