Today Crossroads posted several photos of the new Elevation toyhaul, Cruiser Aire TT, and the Sunset Trail B.O.S.S. fifth wheel with the slideout front cap on their Facebook Page. The Sunset Trail with the slideout front cap is interesting. Wonder how tight it will be going 60 mph in a driving rain?

I'll take the leap...

No one has been more critical than me about the introduction of a front cap bedroom slide. No one! "Guys, its a hole in the front and you're driving 75 MPH winds and rain against it. Its going to leak." Well, CrossRoads has been able to prove us all wrong. It has been tested and tested and tested again. It works. Take consideration that this slide was engineered by an automotive engineering firm, not Jethro with his Home Improvement tool belt and HK University degree.

The slide has several seal systems and has two surfaces to seal against. The front cap is molded with a ledge that the slide box seals to. Then, the slide itself has a separate cap that is larger than the slide opening - it has seals. There are two sets of sweeping seals as well.

The CR crew has a good joke about it. "We're convinced the front half isn't leaking - the back half might need to be looked at again, though." Trust it will work. They have the dealers, attorneys, and warranty managers convinced.

Brad, wasn't being critical, just wondering. I know Crossroads would test the heck out of it, but things do happen. I wish them good luck. Its a heck of an innovation.

I can't wait to see these at the shows. That front slide looks pretty cool. I'm sure it's gonna be heavy and pricey though.

Am I the only one to becritical of Crossroads becausethey post on Facebook, but dont update their own website beforehand, so that the true fans of these units and most likely potential buyers can view them on the Crossroads website?







Whats up with that do they need a new webmaster or what?

Facebook has 800,000,000 sets of eyes. This website has how many? In 2011 FB is the place many peope go to for information. It takes no searching to find FB.

Plus they can get a lot more feedback on FB to make any changes or improvements before putting it on the web site. Several other manufactures have done the same thing. I personally don't do the FB thing but I can see where it would give them a lot of feedback both good and bad.

Im sorry but I dont agree. Yes Facebook has lots of eyes, but you still have to search on Facebook for Crossroads RV, And not just Crossroads, you have to include the RV or you dont get to see the Crossroads page until much later in the search,so that makes the search issue a moot point IMO.



I just feel their website updating is VERY lacking. When they have a new model it will take them 3 months or more before we even see a floorplan posted on their own website. I just think it is very unprofessional to not update your website with new products when they come out. Especially in this day and age of technology.



On the feedback, they would , I think, get more feedback on their own website and forum than they do on Facebook. I mean look at it, there are old models that they have posted on Facebook and have been there for close to a year or more, and there are what 9 comments max on one of them and most of them have only a few coments. Thats not a good arguement for Facebook being a place to get alot of feedback from. Exposure yes, but not feedback.



I just think they need to update their own website alot more quickly when new models come out. Heck I was looking at and keeping an eye on their Cruiser TT line. Now remember thenew lines come out in what Sept-Dec? We went to the factory rally in August 2011. I seen floorplans there at the rally, that hadnt been puton the website yet, so it was going on 9 months before the new floorplan was put on their website? That is rediculous to say the least.



This is a rant for sure, but they need to update their website more often.

I don't do FB either. So as far as how much exposure CR gets there, I don't have a clue.
I do agree with Brian that their web site should be updated more often so this info is available to "us" the owner/users. They can and do change their info at any time it suits them anyway, so I guess I don't buy into the FB reasoning.
Back to the original post__I would like to see one in person also.
