Very cool toy hauler

This camper kinda reminds me of FtWildernessGuys camper in a few ways but I thought it was a cool setup. Looks like they took the Keystone Outback and perfected it a liitle more for more sleeping room. Thanks to Lonestar for showing me this. Now I want to go get it lol. This thing is definately the best of both worlds.

Hey Donnie, that is an awesome rig. I wish I had that about 10 years ago. Can't wait to see you at the Fort with this one. ? for you, will you be able to get 3 atv's on the front or will you have to put one in the bed of the truck? Good luck.

Oh this is just a dream hauler. I'm married to my 5th wheel and like every one else would lose money selling it.

The problem with this configuration is that it would have a very high tongue weight (perhaps too high for many tow vehicles). This would affect handling.

The specs say 595lb hitch weight (does not say loaded or unloaded). Which is less then half of my hitch weight. It took a while to learn how to load our toy hauler right to keep the hitch weight right at the specs. Loaded correctly my hitch weight is 1200lbs but the first time I loaded it it was a little over 1800lbs. So it just took a little adjusting and now no problem.
Give Donnie some time and we will be seeing somthing new. If nothing else maybe a addon to his 5er.

Was that a pimp-out by Keystone or an after-market job? It looks like a lot of trailer behind the wheels. I wonder what the balance is like w/o the toys on the front.

I was wondering about the tongue weight myself when I first saw this. We have a golf cart but I have no idea what it weighs. I like the idea of having a place to haul a cart or bike without taking up space inside. I have to agree with Donnie though that I would not want to give up our 5th wheel. We truly have fallen in love with our Cougar.

I was thinking the same thing. That may be dangerous to tow w/o a toy on the front.

Actually the way they have the axles set up the tongue weight isn't that bad. I had a friend who had a Starcraft with the deck up front and he pulled it with a F-150 with no problems on tongue weight. I love the floorplan on our Cougar but if I had the cash and wouldn't get pistol whipped on mine I'd consider it because I want to start 4 wheeling more often again.

This was our 2007 Starcraft 21 DSD. It was very similar to the new one listed. We would have kept it but we kinda outgrew it. It caught alot of attention everywhere we went. It would hold (1) ATV or (1) golf cart and of course, we lost our behind on it when we traded it.

That would be perfect for us. Live in Florida so it is a flat ground and I really want a way to carry our cart. I wonder if we could plop our 23b up on a heavy duty trailer?

My friends was the 18SD but it had a 2 place on the front. If you've ever had a gas powered machine in a camper and had to wait til the smell went away you'd enjoy this option.

Most golf carts weight approximately 1,000#. This alone exceeds a lot of tow vehicles hitches tongue weight limits.
