There are “comfort” travel trailers for entry-level buyers to “premium” five-wheelers. In all, Keystone has 16 model lines, including the popular Montana five-wheelers, Bullet travel trailers and Fuzion toy haulers.

Who is this travel trailer suitable for?
As mentioned earlier, the Keystone Outback Ultra-Lite line is suitable for all types of travelers. A couple will find options for a comfortable cooking area.
Solo travelers will find options with ample space for entertaining friends. And a family will find options where everyone has their own bed without having to convert other rooms.
But even though this series is considered “premium” among Keystone motorhomes, it’s designed for weekend camping use, not full-time living. You won’t find the homey finishes or higher-end construction you might see in the “luxury” lines.
So if you want to enjoy weekend camping trips or even week-long vacations, the Keystone Outback Ultra-Lite travel trailer might be a good choice.
Is Keystone RV a good company?
Keystone RV has been in the RV industry for nearly 30 years. Over the years, they’ve listened to customer feedback, developed unique floorplans for different travelers, and stuck with what they do best. With over one million customers and 5,000 team members, Keystone RV must be doing something right.
But like all RVs, the RVs Keystone makes are not perfect. That’s why things break, slides don’t work properly and systems fail.
But when you buy from Keystone, you become part of a family with a million other owners who can help you troubleshoot and offer tips and ideas. Plus, Keystone’s customer service team will work with you to fix your repairs.
So if you’re looking for a lightweight tow vehicle, consider the Keystone Outback Ultra-Lite Series.
