This was supposed to be our retirement trailer but it almost bankrupt us. First trip the TV, didn't work, Second trip the hot water tank went, while waiting (2 months for the parts for it) the microwave broke and the exit window flooded the bedroom. Picked it up after getting the hot water tank fixed and upon reaching campground found the awning motor had blown. Each time I had to take it in for service it cost me $100.00 each way for gas not to mention food and other expense. Got awning fixed and then found the wheel weels have been leaking on the floor under the dinette and slide. We finally asked crossroads to replace the unit or give us a break on trading up and they choose to do nothing, so we lost around $5000.00 on the whole deal. I wouldn't wish this product on anyone the quility is very substandard and the company won't admit when they have a bad unit.

Sooo---what is this unit, and where did you purchase it?
Have you addressed these issues with the selling dealer?
Have you contacted CR directly (yourself) and discussed the problems with them?

The unit was a Slingshot 29BH it was purchased at the Hershy RV show in Pa. It was being serviced in Akron, Oh as this was the closest Camping World dealer to me. I live south of Pittsburgh, Pa. The selling dealer was in NY.
I addressed all the issues with crossroads myself and was on a first name bases with one of the managers. When all of the problems this unit had became to overwhelming to handle anymore and we wanted out of it he didn't even want to talk to us then. The air conditioner was starting to act up and they couldn't admit the unit was a lemon.

I am very sorry to hear you had all of those problems! We are half-way through our 2nd season of camping with our 2011 Slingshot 29BH and it has been an absolute dream. We only had a few minor problems with it early on, but have had no issues since. I hope you are able to come to a satisfactory conclusion to this - rather it is getting out of the unit altogether or getting the problems fixed

We did get out of the unit by tradeing it for another trailer (not a Crossroads) since Crossroads was unwilling to help us out on trade or a new unit. It got to costly to keep running the lemon in for each thing that kept failing which was every time we used it and we camp all summer. I just feel sorry for who ever ends up with this unit.

Yeah I hear ya. I have a sunset trail st31bh reserve it is only 3 weeks old and has been at the dealer more than in my yard. Noting but problems. The cosmetic problem list was long and the mechanical issues are starting to get more serious as the days go by. At the moment I have leaks that the dealer are unable to fix.

This is my second Crossroads product and my last. It is sad because I love the layout and the features of my trailer. However when I last checked a waterfall was not one of those features.

Tommorrow I pick it up at the dealer and use it for camping then on the way home I will be dropping it of at the dealer again for more repairs. I guess the only good thing is that it is not taking up sapce in the driveway. I got free storage at the dealer.

I feel for you, I really do. If I'd known in Oct what I know now I'd never have bought anything Crossroads put their name on. There quality sucks.

Also I've already had to have the refridgerator replaced since that leaked all the gas out. And I also have asked Crossroads to get out of this camper and trade for another one. If I have another problem after I get this latest problem fixed I will be contacting a lawyer

Hmmm, 3 newer members appear bashing CR and their Slingshots. Makes me wonder how legit this is?

Many of us, including me, can offer personal testimonies of CR going above and beyond, with a consistent pattern of doing so over many years. Very few manufactured RVs come without an issue or two, no matter the manufacturer. Perhaps there are issues with individual units, perhaps it is the owners who are the problem. Either way, CR backs their warranty and has a proven track record of doing so.

redcloud - you clearly have an axe to grind. however, if CR is honoring the warranty, why would they or any manufacturer eat your loss on a trade? that makes no sense to me.

stokesj - if you were unhappy with your original CR why did you buy another?

happycamper - you don't say which unit you have and aren't very specific about your issues.

If y'all are having legitimate issues that are not covered by warranty, let's hear them. If you're having issues that are covered, you are inconvenienced and frustrated, that is understandable but certainly does not entitle you to either a refund nor a trade in allowance.
