Living Area Features

The living area of the Cougar 316RLS is designed for ultimate relaxation. It features comfortable theater seating directly across from a large 4K smart TV, ensuring you won’t have to crane your neck to watch your favorite shows. The space is also equipped with a cozy hide-a-bed sofa, perfect for accommodating extra guests. What’s really cool is the blackout roller night shades, which can totally block out the sun, making it ideal for movie nights or a peaceful sleep-in.

Kitchen Features

Moving into the kitchen, you’ll find solid surface countertops and a symmetrical design that’s both beautiful and functional. There’s plenty of counter space on both sides, along with easy-to-reach power outlets. The kitchen island adds more prep space and the large pantry is perfect for storing all your cooking essentials. Plus, with the midnight edition, you get an upgraded solar package, meaning you can run some appliances off battery power.

Carpetless flooring and a floor-flush slide are ALWAYS welcome!

Bathroom Features

The Cougar 316RLS steps up its game with a spacious bathroom that includes dual sinks and plenty of storage. The large shower has a built-in seat, adding a touch of luxury and convenience. The bathroom’s layout ensures there’s ample room to move around, which is not always the case in RV bathrooms.

Bedroom Features

In the bedroom, you’ll find a comfortable king-sized bed, with the option to switch to a queen if you prefer. The bedroom is designed for relaxation and privacy, and with dual air conditioners (part of the midnight edition), you’ll stay comfortable no matter the weather outside. There are also handy shelves near the bed for your devices, along with USB and household outlets.

There’s convenient shelves above each of the windows!

Road Mode: Travel Access

When it comes to traveling, the Cougar 316RLS is a dream. It’s designed to be tow-friendly, matching the tire wipes of your vehicle for easier navigation on the road. The anti-lock brakes and shock-dampening pin box make for a smooth and safe journey.

Exterior Features

The exterior of the 316RLS is just as impressive as the interior. The midnight edition includes a stunning full paint package, giving it a sleek and modern look. The RV features dual power awnings for plenty of outdoor living space and upgraded solar panels for off-grid camping. And let’s not forget the convenience of the auto-leveling system, making setup a breeze.

Potential Problems With the 2024 Cougar 316RLS

While the Cougar 316RLS is a fantastic RV, it’s important to note that the darker exterior paint might absorb more heat. This could make the RV warmer in sunny conditions, but the dual air conditioners should help mitigate this issue. Also, the size of the RV might pose a challenge in some smaller campsites or state parks.
