If you are interested in a Keystone Springdale RV, you have come to the right place! Today, we are really excited to share with you a tour of the Keystone Sprindale 260BH Travel Trailer. We partnered with Crestview RV in Georgetown, TX to help you view the details, specs, photos, and more about the latest travel trailers and fifth wheels on the market.
Back in 2017, we bought our first RV, a new Keystone Passport, from Crestview RV and had a really positive experience. So we thought it would get back together with Crestview to give you all an insider look at the hottest RVs on the market. You don’t even have to set foot on the RV lot (yet).
Believe me, we understand the early stage of shopping for an RV can be overwhelming. That’s even more true when it’s your first experience becoming an RV owner. Just a couple of years ago, that was us.
We would have LOVED to see additional details like on the models we were considering. I write this article with that in mind. And I hope that all the details about the Keystone Springdale 260BH helps you learn enough to make an informed decision as you prepare for exciting RV adventures.

Q&A About Springdale 260BH Travel Trailer
But we also wanted to give you the written version of the highlights for those of you who may not enjoy the video option as much. So let’s dive in to this model that is widely known as “the #1 selling bunkhouse” on the market today.
Here are our answers to the most common questions asked about this popular travel trailer model.
How Many People Can Sleep in the Keystone Springdale Trailer?
The floor plan in this bunkhouse travel trailer can sleep up to five adults.
This Springdale 260BH includes a queen bed in the master bedroom, two double-sized bunk beds (very spacious) in the bunkhouse, a convertible dinette and a jackknife sofa.
If you are traveling with adults, this trailer can sleep up to five comfortably. If you have little kiddos involved, you could probably get away with six or seven (depending on whether you have violent sleepers or not).
How Many Slides Does the Bunkhouse Trailer Have?
The quick answer is none. This unit does not have any slides.
I think that’s just fine, because it’s one of the reasons that this travel trailer, with 26-feet of living space, remains so affordable. It has plenty of great features for you to enjoy, there’s no doubt about that, but the extra wide space that a slide provides is not one of them.
Honestly, I know that slides are nice, but I feel like they can become a major headache if something goes wrong. And slide-out issues are not uncommon.
So the fact that there is no slide on this unit may be a blessing in disguise. You can get out and adventure all you want without having that extra worry on your mind.
How Many Bathrooms are in the Keystone Springdale Trailer?
You probably know the answer to this one already. For the sake of a comprehensive overview, we’ll mention it here anyway. There is one full bathroom in this rig.
The bathroom does have a unique layout. The sink is separate from the shower and toilet.
In my opinion, the floorplan of the bath area is a nice feature. It makes the space more usable for a family. There will not be as much knocking on the bathroom door or waiting around to use the sink. I suspect it will reduce the morning routine and take less time for everyone to get ready. We think you’ll like that feature as well.
Does it Have a Power Tongue Jack?
For some of you, I know that the power tongue jack is a must. You have no interest in hand cranking that tongue to get everything level. I do not blame you.
The good news is that it does have a power tongue jack, which I feel is pretty rare at this $15K price point.
We traveled in our RV for over a year on the road with a hand crank on the tongue. Of course, that’s only because my two boys did most of the cranking. I would have upgraded if I was the only person dealing with that.
Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about using any muscle to hand crank the jack with this unit.
Is This a Lightweight Travel Trailer?
I’ll be honest with you: I’m not sure if there are specific parameters for what qualifies as a “lightweight travel trailer.” In my book, however, this one fits into the lightweight category. It has a dry weight of 5,219 lbs and a hitch weight of only 510 lbs.
It may be feasible to tow this rig with some of the beefier 1/2 ton trucks out there. But, that doesn’t mean you can skip your research and tow it with any ol’ 1/2 ton you may have in the driveway.
As with any RV, do your due diligence before you buy. You don’t want to be that guy (or gal) who has a horror story to tell about having a truck that won’t pull a brand new travel trailer. Unfortunately, I’ve seen and heard one too many of those stories.
Is a Backup Camera Included?
When it comes to overall safety in a travel trailer, I feel that a backup camera is one of the essential RV accessories that many folks ignore. If I hadn’t had my two boys to watch each corner of the rig for me while backing, I would may have quite a few horror stories of my own.
With this Keystone travel trailer, you get “half way” there because it is wired for a quick install backup camera. The camera device is not included at this price.

Keystone RV offers both a 1-year limited base warranty on any defects on the travel trailer as well as a 3-year limited structural warranty.

Keystone Springdale 260BH Price
According to Crestview’s website, the MSRP on this travel trailer is $25,147. Their current sale price, however, is $14,995. Not too shabby, my friend.
