Your Keystone Passport Grand Touring will be the sportiest travel trailer in the RV park. Its exterior is built for outdoor adventures. Insulated lockable radius baggage doors are equipped with holdbacks, and the insulated radius entrance door has a screen. For stability and convenience, the Passport Grand Touring features four scissor-style stabilizer jacks and a heavy-duty front mechanical jack. Rain gutters have extended downspouts, and the exterior shower runs both hot and cold water. If you’re travelling at night, you’ll be thankful for the lighted exterior pass-thru storage compartment, patio light and electric awning with LED lights. If you want to maximize your time outdoors, you can make use of the exterior speakers.
When you first walk into the Keystone Passport Grand Touring, you are welcomed by a warm, modern ambience. The beautiful residential furniture is adorned with high-grade fabric, and the windows are decorated with window treatments and valances. Equipped with residential doors, light fixtures and flooring, the Passport Grand Touring makes you feel at home, even when your miles away. The living room is equipped with a residential- style entertainment center with integrated pocket doors. It features an LED flat screen TV and a 12-volt DVD/CD/AM/FM stereo, Bluetooth and quality sound system. You can watch TV from the fold-down sofa or from the dinette.

The Grand Touring kitchen will make you want to cook while vacationing. It comes with the necessary residential appliances that allow you to cook all types of meals – from the simple to the extravagant. Features include an extra large double-door refrigerator, microwave with a carousel and three-burner high output range with a range hood. If you like baking, then you’ll be happy to know it even comes with a gas oven. You can wash dishes in the oversized 60/40 residential sink, which comes equipped with a metal high-rise faucet and sink covers. The beautiful cabinetry comes with residential raised panel hardwood doors, and offers lots of space to store pots, pans and condiments. For extra storage, you get a pantry along with overhead compartments throughout the space.
Unlike many trailer bathrooms, Grand Touring’s bathroom is comfortable and modern. Its solid wood custom medicine cabinet has a mirror, and the tub surround has built-in shelves, perfect for holding your shampoos and soaps. Of course, there’s a pedestal foot flush toilet and 12V power exhaust fan. For your convenience, the Grand Touring has a linen closet just outside of the bathroom, where you can store your towels and robes.
When you’re ready to recharge, just head to the bedroom. Equipped with a Queen-size bed (quilted bedspread included), it is guaranteed to give you a good night’s sleep. You can hang your clothes in the oversized wardrobes or store them in the overhead compartment. The bedroom also comes with a power outlet and reading lights.
