Cool Cruiser and cruiser patriot

What's the difference between a cruiser and a cruiser patriot. Or even Cruise aire. Just curious

The Patriot/Provincial package is apparently no more as of 2013 - ours is a Patriot/Provincial package but no longer branded on the exterior as a Patriot as it was in 2012 and prior years. Prior to this it was an upgrade package with more features and options. Now they are called Select packages or just add-ons you can order or the dealer orders.

Cruiser Aire are the lightweight half ton towable 5th wheels. All cruisers are 5th wheels. They are not available in a TT configuration. I think the Sunset Trail will end up replacing the Cruiser Aire.

They are all just different lines with different features. If you want to sort of see how they move up in features / luxury add-ons they go like this. And of course the price goes up as you move higher.

Z-1
Rezerve / Zinger
Sunset Trail Reserve / Sunset Trail Super Lite / Cruiser Aire
Cruiser / Elevation
Rushmore
Redwood

Interesting enough that the Sunset Trail actually seems to have more options than the Cruiser Aire but they do have different floor plans.

Thanks. We are buying a 2012. 305 sk. They. Don't call it a patriot. But. The paint job looks the same as in your picture and it does have a lot of upgrades. Maybe tats what it is. Guess it doesn't really matter. We like it either way

If it has 16 inch tires it is the Patroit. One of the upgrades of that was going from 15 to 16

We have a 2013 305SKP and LOVE it. The floorplan is what sold us on the unit. Good luck with your negotiations on your 305SK Welcome to the forum.

Other than the obvious stickers that show "Patriot" under every Cruiser sticker. The Patriot Series has;
1. 16" tires
2. 8cf fridge 2 dr in place of 6cf
3. 10 gal DSI water heater in place of 6gal
4. Trail-Air Rotoflex Pinbox
5. Hide-a-bed sofa
6. R27 roof and R28 floor insulation with PolarTec
7. R15 Sidewall Insulation
8. Ducted 15k AC
9. 50a Service w/2nd ac prep
10. Electric Rear Jacks
11. Solid Surface Counter tops
12. Stainless Steel Sink
13. Electric Awning
14. Free Standing Table and 4 chairs
15. Washer Dryer Prep

That's from the Brochure dated 11/11

There are other options listed like 32" TV, slide out awning, rain sensor fan, fireplace, 7 function remote key fob, dual pane windows, leather furniture upgrade.

By my count the Patriot edition has 15 options as standard equipment over the Cruiser with a few more available.

Well, Debbie, you know what they say, "If it walks like a duck..." Sounds like a Patriot.
