I have the 278 Cougar and I believe the Larado is the same trailer, just from out west. The quality on our cougar has been great for a entry level unit. We bought it in 99 and have only had minor problems and very few of those so far. It had a water leak (rain) the first time out but,dealer repaired with no problem since. I could have fixed myself but, the dealer wanted me to bring it back so they would have a record of the problem. Fan fell off the stove exhaust and that's the only problems we have had.
