Hello all! I've been reading all the negatives and the few positives about the Rushmore Lincoln fiver. I am a very satisfied owner of a 2006 Paradise Point and we have decided that it's time to buy a larger trailer to put on our new lot in an rv park being developed about an hour and a half away. It will be our weekend cabin

We have decided to buy a Lincoln and actually have the choice of a 2013 with extra options and a 2014, both at the same price. I'd like to hear any pros or cons for buying a particular year. We are aware of the comments and issues raised on this forum, but we are not interested in Crossroads bashing...

If you have a good dealer I don't think it matters which year. There is always a chance that you will get one that had something that was built on a Monday or Friday. That being said, the only concern is your ability to have it serviced if you are parked permanently and don't have the ability to bring it into the dealer for warranty work. Most problems will identify themselves in the first few months if use. It was likely the same people who built both units so it would pretty much come down to your relationship with the dealer and a really good PDI on purchase.

Thanks, and very true. We will still be able to move our unit if we want to go on vacation anywhere so we can haul it to the dealer for service. The owner is the same guy who sold us our Pointe so we already have a pretty good rapport with the dealership. Hopefully that will continue

Hi Steve and Carol,
We are the owners of a 2014 model Lincoln, however we attended the RV Show here in Hershey PA recently and found that not all of the 2014s have the dedicated docking center. We would definitely recommend waiting for a model that has it. I can only imagine the pain it must be to empty the tanks, connect the hoses, connect the cable/satellite cords etc...in the basement under the bedroom slide out. Not to mention the issue of a leaky hoseorthe hole in the basement floor when we need to heatit in cooler weather.That alone would have been a deal breaker for us no matter how much we loved the floor plan.
That being said, we purchased from a wholesaler and we have had a few issues with ours, but finding a reputable, competentrv service provider is a must! We were very fortunate to find a center that has been willing to go above and beyondto work with CR to honor the warranty(And they aren't even a CR approved dealership!).It has made the hassles so much easier to handle.
We are very happy with our Lincoln. We have put our own finishing touches to customize the d├ęcor and make ours unique to us.
Hope that helps,
Robyn

Thanks, Robyn! We will check out the docking station situation before making our decision.

We purchased a 2014 Lincoln Rushmore, they are 100% right, ours has the pump and water filter inside the rear basement that I can't get to, I bypassed the water filter so I can change out the filter. Other than that they are mostly the same unit.

The floorplan of the 2014 Lincoln on the Rushmore web site looks quite a bit different. The entry door is more towards the back with the kitchen table to the right of the door instead of the left. I would like that a whole lot better. Also shows the sink at an angle which I think would also look better. It also looks like there are no steps going up to the bathroom or bedroom. I do think I like that layout a whole lot better, especially the placement of the table. I can not find any pictures of this model anywhere on the web. The virtual tour of the new floorplan is wrong, that's showing the old model.

Hi! There are some 2014 units that are almost identical to the 2013's and now the plan has been reworked into the one you describe. Apparently it is to make the unit more family oriented with an actual table...but only one bdrm My dealer is returning his older 2014 units to be replaced with the new ones. We have pretty much decided to buy the original 2014 plan as there are just the 2 of us and we don't mind the "comma" table nor the rear stairs.

We are hoping for a decision from the bank Tuesday...wish us luck!
Thanks, Steve

We got our approval! We will sign the papers tomorrow for our 2014 Lincoln, along with a 7 year extended warranty covering all systems. It may be ready for the walk thru on Saturday and we will definitely operate ALL the systems
