Keystone Vantage FGRV

Has anyone seen one of these? The one I spotted in our storage lot is really sharp and huge, possibly 25í. I read that all but the first few had major problems, but those early ones were well done and still on the road. Here are some pics and a link to an old online discussion.Click image for larger version

Nice. Not all-molded, strictly speaking, so it doesnít fit within the scope of this website. It appears some parts are molded, some are panels, all supported by a frame under the skin.

Iím sure someone here has some knowledge of them, though. Are you asking out of general curiosity or do you have an interest in owning one of these?

Rats. I thought it was molded and wanted to find out if it was worth stalking the owner for a peek inside. Since Iím only a fan of molded fiberglass, Iím not interested anymore. Thanks for the heads up.

I see what appear to be seams between the molded end caps and side panels. The link (which I only read until it wanted me to log in to continue) mentioned ďvacuum-bonded, cambered side walls.Ē Sounds like a different process than spraying fiberglass into a mold, more like laminated construction.
