Thumbs down Elevation discontinued??

Talked with a sales person in Detroit about trading in our Elevation on a Nitro. Tired of the shotty work and the layout just doesnt work for us. He informed me that they have discontinued making the Elevations because of all the problems and they just bought back all the ones the dealer had on the lot. He let me know that because of this our trade in on our camper is now only about $30k. Any one else heard this??? I want them to buy mine back to since they just screwed us out of any value on ours.

I have a feeling this is true, as i tried to sell my 2013 i got as a left over in 2014 and i was told its worth less then $30,000 right now, which is ridiculous to have my unit worth less the half of what i paid for it in under a year of ownership.

I just viewed the 2016 Elevations online at various dealers. They have the Elevation: Homestead, Las Vegas, Grand Prix, Laguna, Richland, Talladega and Brickyard. Was that the models they had in the past years.

Hi All!

I actually just took this thread to Elevation's product manager...who was REALLY surprised to hear that Elevation has been discontinued!!

I'm not sure how the rumor got started, or why a dealership would state that information as factual! I have private messaged you to see what dealership it was- because apparently we need to have a very serious conversation with them.

I also asked about the products that were bought back by CrossRoads. There were some Elevations purchased back becuase (in all honesty) it was the right thing for us to do. When we are made aware of QC concerns, sometimes, it is better for us to regroup and reformulate a product to be better..rather than continue selling a batch that causes issues. They were not bought back because of Elevation "going under", but rather, because Elevation is striving to become a reborn, better product.

Please let me be the first to apologize for any confusion regarding this matter. It is our hope to have very clear communication with ALL of our dealers, and it's definitely hard when that communication is not happening as it should. Any questions- feel free to ask! (If I don't know the answer, I'll bug someone that does)!

Thanks,
Christian

Really great to hear this information. We considered trading in our 2013 3612 last year, and were unhappy to find it was worth about 20% of the retail price as a trade....

Since you asked, perhaps you could tell me if there will be who will be the representing dealer for the Elevation brand at the Hershey, Pa. RV show? Also if there will be an Elevation on display? The show is scheduled September 16-20 and we live only 15 minutes away so it is an annual event. Wife and I normally spend multiple days there.
Thanks!
Denny

Absolutely! Elevation will be with Hitch RV. When you get to the show- look for the Crossroads blimp. :-) A bunch of us will be at the show all week...Looking forward to seeing you!

Hey There,

So are there certain vin# sequences CR is buying back, or is it on a case by case basis?

How do we know or who do we contact at CR to discuss this? Is it a dealer initiated process/conversation with CR?

I've had a ton of problems with mine (proper big problems) and if CR is buying back a problem batch, I would consider having CR buy ours back and purchase a new 2016 unit.

Hello!
I have contacted you privately to see how I can help. CR bought a small selection of units back from that specific dealer as a gesture of good will- so I'm actually not sure about any details besides that. However, I would very much like to explore some possibilities for getting your issues fixed and seeing how we could help prevent them in the future.

Talk to you soon!
Christian
