after only a year - may be leaving crossroads

Wife has the bug for more space and we are kind of settling on a couple of Keystone models (I like some of the equivalent Coachmen models). I am liking the features some of these things have. The wife is seeing more space for our adult kids and one young granddaughter - for the occasional visit we get from them.

Do what makes you happy. I left in 2012 when we tried the tiny camper thing. That didn’t work out; then we came back in 2016. Good luck and safe travels.

Actually technically you won't be leaving! Thor owns Crossroads & Keystone (along with about any other brand you could name) & if I'm not mistaken Thor has, as of a couple years ago, placed Crossroads under the Keystone umbrella, or at least the Redwood division.

not surprised with the consolidation in that industry.
right now, I bet they are getting a substantial amount of the business from oil field workers, based on observations traveling through the West Texas oil fields.
It was amusing to see floor plans and options between Keystone and Coachmen being nearly identical. Salesman was pushing more towards the Keystone and wife was biting.

Seems I may have jumped the gun on trading. We were not as close on our trades as previously thought. Wife is bummed. Have to admit some of the creature features we were seeing sure seemed nice. But in the end there was a gulf of about $5K or more keeping us from making a trade.
Was not necessarily looking forward to another 1,500 to 2,500 of towing weight to pull with our expedition. I had set 7500 pounds as my max dry weight. Truck is rated at about 9200.

Yep. Sometimes you have to step back and ask yourself. Nice; but is it really worth it.

One of the biggest mistakes many newer RV'ers make, is that they try to take their "sticks and bricks" lifestyle on the road.



The RV life is a big lifestyle change. The transition can take time, and it is sometimes is a tough process. It can be characterized by the old RV'ers creed: "For everything that comes in the door....something has to go out". Otherwise the consequences can be costly.
