Back in January we took our Jayco 305 BHS to the local dealer to have the brakes adjusted and the bearings repacked and I made the mistake of walking out on the lot just to look. Someone had traded in an 08 Cruiser CF31QB and I just had to tell DW about it since we now have 4 grandkids. Took her to look at it that Saturday and she fell in love with it. Brought it home the following Wednesday and have been loving it ever since. I guess it was just meant to be as it had been traded in a couple of weeks earlier and the closest dealer is 100 miles away. We have been camping in it three times already and heading out to Spruce Pine this weekend. We are going to be on Tybee Island June 12 to 19 in site 87, If any other members are there, stop by and say hi.

We have owned a CF31QB since late August '09. We have driven from Ohio to San Antonio and San Antonio to Disney World and return plus a few shorter trips. We have had the two of us plus my son, daughter-in-law and two small grandkids camped for three nights in Texas and nine nights from TX to FL and back. It can be a bit cramped but it does work. We shopped a lot as this is our first RV but we were hooked as soon as we saw it. The factis it weighs a whole bunch less than similar floor plans and tows safely and easily with our 3/4 ton TV.



Good luck with your Cruiser and happy camping.

Congrats on the new to you RV. We love ours. We spent a long weekend last May with 9 of us sitting inside watching tv while it snowed (the furnace actually quit working then too). There was plenty of room for 4 of the 5 teenagers in the front and the rest of us in the living/kitchen area. Found it a little more difficult to find nice large back-in camp spots but so far everything has been great.

Good luck and happy camping

We like ours...been using the heck out of it. We ordered it with the rap around lounge couch. Works great for all 5 of us for watching a movie etc. Always plenty of room to strech out.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />



Made some mods to the bathroom area for more privacy.



Will be removing the overly large pantry to the right of the refigerator to put in a counter top with drawers on the bottom and cabnets on the top.

I got a curved shower curtain rod and attached it to the wall around the shower and sink area. Then purchased a heavy cloth shower curtain from WalMart that matched the interior pretty well. This setup works great and allows the kids to pass through to the bunkroom if needed and gives me privacy in the shower.Itprovides enough roomto open the shower door enough to get in and out. I found on ebay abendable shower curtain rod that looks to provide even more space...search for "BENDABLE SHOWER CURTAIN ROD" on ebay. I'll try to post some pictures this weekend.
