Pros and Cons of the 2024 FSX 290RTK

We want you to know the benefits and possible drawbacks of a 290RTK so you can make the best possible decision whether this trailer or another would be best for you. Consider these pros and cons as you make your decision.

FSX 290RTK Pros:

  • Versatile Layout: The adaptable interior layout allows for different uses that make this RV suitable for families, couples, or bringing large toys. From quad bunk setups to private bunkhouses, this RV offers flexibility to match changing preferences.
  • Spacious Interior: The 7′ interior ceiling height provides a sense of openness and comfort. Windows and natural lighting create a bright and inviting atmosphere throughout the RV.

  • Price: For the price this camper offers a lot of value for a reasonable cost.

FSX 290RTK Cons:

  • Towing Challenges: The 290RTK’s considerable size and weight mean it will require a beefy tow vehicle. A one ton truck will do the trick, be very careful and check all the specs before considering something smaller.
  • Limited Road Mode Access: When the slides are in it can be difficult to access certain areas, such as the refrigerator, while on the road. If you like to stop and use the camper while you’re on the go, keep this in mind.
  • Interior Design Prioritizes Practicality: While the 290RTK offers functionality, its interior design leans more towards practicality than luxury. If you want high-end finishes or luxurious features, this RV may not meet your expectations.
