cruiser 326RE and 322RL

We are thinking about getting a new fifth wheel in on of these floor plans, 326re and 322rl. does anyone have one or know anything about these. No one around us has one to look and see. Need to know how the measurements are on either side of the bed to get in and out, currently our fifth wheel we have about 1ft to 1 1/2 ft on either side. saw a
2013 Crossroads CRUISER SAHARA 335SS and there was no way we were going to be able to use either side.

Please need some feedback thanks

The 322RL will have the most space beside the bed of any Cruiser floor plan. It is the only plan that has a king bed as an option, so the standard queen bed with night tables will give you that much extra space on each side.

Just a rough guess looking at the floor plan, but about 18 inches on one side and 24 inches on the other.

I have a call in to the company to see if they are planning on making the bedrooms larger for the 326RE, we kinda like the L couch, but I love the room in the bathroom on the RL
hard decision to make!
and as far as Iknow they are the only company that have a class 3 hitch. we currently tow a swivel wheel behind our cardinal for our golf cart. Passed right by several state troopers over the years and no issues.
Lov that swivel wheel.

The 326 is the same bed layout as the 335ss. Doubt the factory has changed the size. That leaves you with the 322. The 322 has a more open feel to it then the congestion of the 326. We never like the locked in feeling you get behind the L shaped kitchen.

Can you see a 326 in person to check out the sofa. Most of the sofa beds are a piece of $#!+. If you don't have a bad back when you sleep on one you will when you wake up in the morning. I don't know if Crossroads started to use the new furniture supply company they talked about. Does anyone know??? I hope that will be an improvement.

While the L couch may be interesting, the 322RL has a much better living area. The recliners face the TV directly, yet someone can still stretch out on the sofa and watch TV. And the sofa is probably bigger than on the 326RE. On the 326RE, trying to use a recliner and watch TV sideways is no fun.

The 326RE does have several advantages, it is 2ft shorter, the refer is not located in the slide out and it can be accessed with the slide out closed. However the angled refer is a big space waster and CR probably didn't install side baffles in the back as required (I had to add them on my angled refer).

No we cannot see one in person. no-one in the state has these except one place and they only have 2013 models. If anyone does sleep on the sofa, we have a blow-up mattress that we use for visitors now on the sofa that is in our cardinal. the cardinal has a regular mattress but who sleeps on those anyway? so we bought a blow up mattress and it works

I was not referring to night-time use of the sofa. I'm probably different than most RV owners in that I do a lot of hard volunteer work and it the evenings I will relax by stretching out on the sofa to watch TV or just listen to the stereo. That is also why I replaced the small, uncomfortable sofa with a 6ft unit and better cushions.
