Hello all , look for my first TT , been shopping for over a year now and wonder in how all you owners have found the build quality of your unit ? I really like the 240bh . Any insight would be great !

I had my old zinger 26BL for 3 yrs. We loved it. It was a solid well built tt that stood up to plenty of use. A few small issues, nothing major. We wanted a different floor plan and upgraded to a fiver so we sold ours.

Spent nearly a month in ours this year with only minor issues which I fixed. Build quality is fine for an RV.

Can't speak to the newer ones, but I love my 07 Cruiser. It is very well built for a light weight, mid-priced RV. Everything works like it is supposed to every time I go out in it, it doesn't leak, and it feels solid. Can't beat it. If the newer ones are as good as it is, I wouldn't be afraid of them.

Here's my two cents, anyone else feel free to chime in.

No better value for your dollar in an ultralight trailer.

The issues we've had I can attribute to the efforts by Crossroads to make the trailers lighter. I believe those issues you will find in all ultralight trailers. Lighter components can translate to less durable or cheaper quality (plastic water fixtures, lighter shell components).

We love our 2013 Sunset Trail Reserve 26RB. Love the workmanship and the beauty of the interior.

x2 on the Reserves.

The amenities you get are great.

If anyone finds a brand that gives you as much in this price range, please post. I researched for 2 years before buying our 300BH.

The Cruiser radiance is comparable, but not at the price point for Crossroads.

We loved our first Zinger. Enough to upgrade to a larger Zinger.

Nothing to much on either unit. A friend bought a Zinger due to the price/quality index, and he did have a LOT of stupid small problems (5-o'clock Friday unit we suspect). He is still satisfied with Crossroads as they stood behind the product during repairs. Dealership leaves alot to be desired, but he loves the trailer.

I love my ST25RB. My front cap is fading but due to be repainted. My awing lights went out but were replaced and have worked fine ever since. I noticed a single drop of water on my shower skylight the other day after a very heavy storm. I will investigate it further this weekend as I winterize. It is a reserve model not the ultralight. I always get numerous comments on the looks inside and out. I would buy another.

We are now a year in with our first crossroads after have 2 Lance campers and really couldn't be happier. We shopped all last summer before choosing our Zinger. Very few issues and we always get compliments every time we are out camping.

We have a 2013 Sunset Reserve and like the others we have had a few issues but Crossroads resolved them for us. We also receive a ton of compliments and I would not hesitate to buy another.

270bh

We just finished our first year with our first trailer. There were a lot of things the dealer didn't tell us that we found out. These were all good things, amenities and upgrades that other trailers don't have. Have been very happy with it. We have the ST270BH we had almost purchased the 240BH but when I compared the interiors I had to go with the larger one. I am glad I did.

I am thinking the same thing going the next size up. But I thought keeping iy just to what I need would be the thing to do,for easier towing and parking in tight sights and spots while boon docking ? This is my first TT and am also towing with a '14 ram 1500 hemi. How does yours handle it.

Thanks to everyone else for the input !! It helps a lot.

It tows very good not that I have anything to compare it to. I have the Ram 1500 with tow package 5.7 hemi. Towing i am getting about 9-10 mpg. I also have the equalizer hitch 10k. No issues even when semis fly past. I have never towed before. Backing in is fairly easy for me now as compared to the first couple of times.

I love mine. I have had very few minor issues, and nothing I couldn't resolve myself.
