2015 Keystone Bullet 27BHS

2015 Keystone Bullet 27BHSOur story began on our first trip of 2015.

While pulling our Keystone Bullet 27BHS to southern Indiana, both front rubber inserts began flapping in the wind. We called the dealer and they said to just remove them and bring it in after our trip.

While on vacation, the kitchen counter started coming apart. Then the molding fell off the slide out, and the bathroom vent was leaking.

It was at the dealer for a long while. This was due to my rejection of their poor craftsmanship while making the repairs.

Second Bullet 27BHS Outing

On our next trip with our “repaired” Bullet 27BHS our camping neighbors unplugged our power cord because it was smoking. According to the dealership the battery shorted out and burnt the inverter. The battery was not included in the warranty. Next, the awning was ripped off by the wind.

More Trouble

Currently the front of our camper is wavy. The insurance will not pay. They said it is water damage. Of course, the dealership wouldn’t say if it was water damage or not. I did my own inspection and found no area where water could be getting in. There are no signs of water damage inside the camper. After researching this it’s called de-lamination. A common problem with this unit, but the manufacturer refuses to correct the issue. Furthermore, the dealer wants $2,500 to repair this.

Keystone Premier 26RBS

We have a 2017 Keystone Premier 26RBS. Ergo, we had lots of problems. Some were small issues initially. First, the furnace duct work was not connected properly. Next, strapping was falling off the ceiling. In addition, they cut a hole for electrical or plumbing, sawdust everywhere.

There are also larger problems. For instance, the CO2 didn’t going off when one of the stove dials were left on by mistake.

The Axle Problem

Most importantly, biggest problem was the axle pin was not set into hole provided which has caused our trailer to lean to the right. It wears out our tires and cause a leak to one of the grey tanks. We had no idea the trailer was leaning until we were followed by family. They took pictures.

We sent Keystone pictures of the axle pin out of place. In addition, pictures of the condition of our tires and of the grey tank leak. Consequently, our trailer was at the dealership for over eight months. They were trying to sort out who’s problem this was. The warranty company said it was a manufacturing defect. Keystone blamed Dexter who made the axles. But Dexter does not assemble the trailers. In the end Keystone says it’s our fault claiming we overloaded our trailer.

No Keystone Accountability

Keystone will not take responsibility for their poor workmanship. In other words, in the end we had to pay out of pocket to get our trailer back. We are obviously not happy and do not recommend any trailers that are under the THOR umbrella, especially the Keystone Premier 26RBS .

Lots more to this story. In other words, this is just a condensed version. To anyone who is looking for a trailer please do your homework. Investigate the trailer company and see if they fall under THOR industries.

Contact Thor Industries

I recently read that someone, somewhere got some results by contacting Thor directly. Thor is the parent company of Keystone, maker of the Premier 26RBS. Certainly this is another avenue.
