Soooooo happy,we bought when we did

Hello all been awhile since I have posted I just wanted to say I'm glad we bought our zinger in 2013 we have a 28 bh after visiting the rv show in Cleveland last night I noticed a huge lack of quality in the whole crossroads lineup I was disappointed as we were searching for a fifth wheel to upgrade to the light interiors don't make much sense to me when you are in the outdoors but that aside I found the forest river 5s to be a bit higher quality also lots of wasted space in the new units I think we have decided to shop for used units due to the lack of quality in all the new ones we looked at .what do you guys and gals think????

If you are satisfied with your present rig, why even consider a used unit?
Keep and use the one you have while you continue looking. You will eventually find a new unit that you will be what you are looking for.
Heck, a 2013 isn't old.
We are sporting around a 2008, and it still looks good, everything works, and it's not causing me any problems yet. When things start going bad, then, I will start looking in earnest.

There is another word you missed----tent.

Grand kids would probably be thrilled.

I've thought the same just seeing what is on dealer lots. The 2015 models started showing "cost cuts", and surfing Crossroads RV site confirms the Zinger has "downgraded".

Even our 2012 (ordered in 2011) arrived very different from show trailers. It is a shame, as the Zinger was an upscale feeling/built trailer at an entry level price. Not so much now.

Not my sons kids, their mother has them AFRAID of EVERYTHING & unless all 4 of them had one of those million candle power flashlights there wouldn't be nearly enough lights on in the tent & once the batteries went dead they'd be tearing the tent down to get in the house, hell there's not enough lights in my 5er for them.

Ha. My folks purchased their first TT years ago with the desire to do some camping while they were retired but young enough to be active. They selected a 4bunk BH with the EXPECTATION of the grand kids. I can't remember if we were pregnant with the 1st or not, but granny already had plans. And she was floating on clouds after the first trip that my 2 were willing to stay overnight alone. Mission accomplished.

Thats a shame. Kids can be jumpy on their own, don't need to be brainwashed about scared of everything. someone mentioned stranger danger to my 4yo, I am currently trying to put the brakes on that mania.

We have a 8 year old Grand Daughter that has been out with us since three. Loves the life style. Has been known to have her mother drop her off on a Friday afternoon, and con us into going out for the week end. Her Brother on the other hand will not spend the night with us, all ways call his mother to come get him about an hour before bed time
