After a lot of research, we've boiled it down to these two choices for a new FW. Our TV is a 2012 Ram 2500 Crew Cab diesel with a 3.73 rear axle.

We generally like both floor plans. The Eagle takes the edge with their night stand next to the bed (my DW uses a C-PAP machine) and the linen closet in the BR. Also we like the longer awning in the Eagle and the 2 yr. warranty.

The Cougar takes the edge with their adjustable, expandable table and lower mounted microwave and fridge. Also, the Cougar has a lower hitch weight, despite the almost identical GVWR's. We also find the exterior of the Cougar HC more appealing.

I would love to hear from owners of these two units as to your experiences with them, both good and bad.

Thanks in advance for your input. We're close to pulling the trigger.

As I said in a previous post, I had a Jayco Eagle and traded it in on a Cougar. The Jayco was better constructed but it was entirely too heavy at the kingpin for our single rear wheel truck when loaded. It depends a lot on the floor plan where your weight ends up. Don't believe the salesman.

We traded our Jayco Jayflight in on a 2013 Cougar 333MKS. Go with Jayco. The Cougar is not constructed as well.

I have the Cougar in my sig & it has been a good RV. I can't speak of the Eagle quality. FYI, if you are considering a Cougar HC, you should be made aware they are being discontinued by Keystone. That will probably effect resale & depreciation. I have a Columbus ordered.

We have a 2012 cougar 327RES and love it. No significant problems yet. Added a 2nd AC unit but no other mods.
