On the outside, the Keystone Raptor looks like the most badass toy hauler you’ve ever seen. Featuring double welded aluminum construction, the Raptor is equipped with G-rated heavy-duty radial tires, rear LED lights and large tinted windows. The fiberglass front cap has Max Turn technology, and the One-Touch electric awning has two LED lights. A six-point hydraulic leveling system levels your RV in less than a minute, and the exterior folding ladder makes it easy to get to the TPO walk-on roof. Other exterior features include 12-volt outlet, outside shower, three outdoor activity lights, huge pass-through storage and a backup camera. To go inside, walk up the four aluminum steps, grab on to the large foldaway assist handle, and step in.
When you walk inside, you instantly feel at home. With residential furniture and modern appliances, you’ll forget that you’re living in a trailer. The large sofa, equipped with recliners, sits right behind a beautiful coffee table/dinette, giving you a perfect view of the entertainment center. Raptor’s entertainment center includes a 50” LED HDTV, Sony Blu-Ray Player and 12-volt sound bar with AM/FM/MP3 Bluetooth and subwoofer. If you’re feeling classy, you can request an electric fireplace.

Keystone designed the Raptor kitchen to inspire the laziest member of your family to cook. You can store your perishables in the Polar Max 18-cubic-foot refrigerator and your non- perishables in the large pantry. The recessed three-burner range comes with a 22-inch oven, and the large stainless steel sink comes with a pullout kitchen faucet. If you’re feeling very lazy, you can heat leftovers in the 30” stainless steel convection microwave. The beautiful hardwood cabinetry, equipped with hidden hinges and shaker style doors, provides ample room for all your pots, pans and kitchen essentials.
The Keystone Raptor has a gorgeous and spacious bathroom. The single piece shower has a skylight above, bringing in lots of natural light, and the porcelain toilet has foot flush. Above the sink is a mirrored medicine cabinet, where you can store all of your toiletries. If the washroom is occupied, you can run over to the other one, equipped with a toilet and sink.
