Keystone and Crossroads are separate companies but both are owned by Thor Industries. Like Chevrolet and Buick are both GM cars but different companies. As to the way they are built I have toured the Forest River plant and the Crossroads plant 2 years ago and they are built about the same. Just like anything you have good and bad. The big factor is the DEALER !

Not meaning any disrespect but you are asking if both Keystone and Crossroads are still junk after you have bought one of each! I cannot speak to the Keystone as I do not own one. The 13 year old Crossroads Cruiser I do have is built well. Is it better then any other - cant say - wont say. IT fills my needs very well and is holding up. I had a Salem by Forest River that I bought new that I traded in on this used Cruiser. It was a bunkhouse and with the kids grown we no longer needed the bunkhouse. We had problems with it but the dealer - a independent who has been bought by Camping World - took care of everything! At 1 week old and leaving for a 2 week vacation the refrigerator quit. Called the dealer and was told to be there when they opened. They could not fix it so he removed another one from a new trailer and after making sure it was working sent us on our way.
There are good and bad in any brand but with as you say with all the complaints with the BBB just wandering why you bought not one but both brands! Again I mean no disrespect .

I bought a crossroads 210fk. Returned in following day so many cosmetic issues , they tried to fix them , but made the worse with cracked wood. I wouldn't accept it.

They took it back as it had noticeable issues.

I am interested in a keystone Premire. Haven't purchased it yet.

But , so many complaints on both brands with the BBB.
People having serious issues with their camp trailers.

That's why I asked are these trailers junk ? So many problems people are going thru.

This is a subject that is discussed all the time on this forum...These campers are built so fast and each one is different from the one built before it...No blue print for plumbing or electrical, all just put in as fast as it can be...I am convinced that unless you are buying a $250,000 RV that you can be assured of getting a quality camper...Anything less you will get a varying degree of problems, and the only thing you can hope for is that they are just minor problems...With all that being said on this forum and on the BBB you will mostly hear about the problems that people have and not the good things...
I have had two Crossroad Cruisers, a 2007 & a 2013 and I have had great luck with both of them...Knock on wood...

PS...good luck to you with your camper hunting...

Agreed. It's a portable house. It's going to rattle loose.��

Read some of the other forums & you'll find it doesn't matter the price, brand, make, model or who the parent company may be, they are all the same, using the same vendors for parts, appliances & equipment.
Also most rvers that are pleased with their particular rv aren't on the forums bragging what a great unit it is, but those that are (moderator edit) at the manufacturer or dealer will be posting on every forum related to their rv.
Same goes for website reviews for parks/campgrounds, "I gave it 2 stars because they didn't provide free dog poop bags" or "1 star cause their FREE WiFi was weak". Some people just can't be pleased no matter what.

Only thing I can add here is the KZ I had went in one time in 3 years. Ended up trading it in for a bigger CR Z1 328 sb. In one year it has been into the dealer 6 times. Dealer has been great but still aggravating. Especially when itís an hour and a half trip to the dealer then another hour and a half back home.

I think of them as a house on wheels with all the weaknesses and problems of each, but exacerbated by each other. Nevertheless, mine has been good.

The best defense is an exhaustive prepurchase inspection to get things solved before you buy and good maintenance.
