The national RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, is now home to a shiny, new Keystone Cougar fifth wheel. Cougar joins the ranks of other classic, collectible, and modern RVs on display at the Hall as part of the industry’s on-going RV lifestyle promotion. The Keystone Cougar was named the #1 selling fifth wheel for the second consecutive year according to Statistical Surveys, Inc. of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“We are pleased to welcome the Keystone Cougar into the GoRVing Hall of the Museum,” stated RV/MH Hall of Fame president Darryl Searer. (Shown in photo left, with Hall historian Al Hesselbart) “When you compare the comforts and luxuries of the Cougar to campers from the past, you realize just how far we have come as an industry. The Cougar features three slideouts, island kitchen, LED lighting and LCD TV as well as remote controls to operate many of the features. By comparison the 1937 Covered Wagon travel trailer we showcase in the Museum featured a canvas roof, leatherette sidewall and horsehair bed. It really is striking to see where we have been and where we are going.”
Adds Cougar product manager Jeff Kloska, “With over 100,000 visitors expected to the RV/MH Hall and Museum this year, this is an opportunity for Keystone, Cougar and the entire industry to sell the benefits of the modern RV lifestyle and encourage more families to Go RVing.”
Located at 21565 Executive Parkway, Elkhart, Indiana, the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum is open daily 9 AM to 5 PM, Sunday 10 AM to 3 PM. Visit the Hall's Website here to learn more.
