Long Horn & Hill Country

Question for you Texas folks: Are the Longhorn and Hill Country trailers sold along with the Zinger/Sunset Trails (like at same dealer)?

I stumbled on the Long Horn version surfing the web, and if I could have ordered one I would have! I love the Texas/Americana color scheme and "Texas" interior appointments!

Eddy/Brenda, from what we were told when we saw these same units at the RV show in San Antonio last year, they are exclusively made for a dealer in Texas who has a multitude of stores. I believe it was Explore USA We really liked them but no one told us they were made by CrossroadsRV. Had we known that, we would have bought one. Salesman seemed to be confused and told us that only his dealer could work on them, etc. Lost a sale of a very nice looking camper.

Longhorn is made for Explorer USA, that is where I purchased here in San Antonio Tx. It's a upgrade package of Zinger.

Those look pretty nice, I see they offer a 39ft travel trailer, I didn't realize they made bumper tows this long.

I bet it would be a lot like "The Long Long Trailer" with Lucy and Desi. Showing our age but such a silly & funny movie.

If we want to have a real blast, let's hook up the 39ft. to our Trailblazer...I am sure we can get the weight police going!

(yes I am kidding...)

Bummer Jean! I noticed they were all listed at ExplorerUSA. Ironically, our pics from Sunset Trail factory tour have a Hill Country in them.

After you post, I was very curious about the two products from ExplorerUSA so I sent them an inquiry on their contact page. From their response (below), it looks like one is a Zinger and the other Sunset Trail - both changed/upgraded to their logos, etc. From what I saw they were definitely a little better than the stock Zinger or Sunset Trail IMHO.

"Hill Country is a fiberglass outside trailer with an aluminum frame. Longhorn is made of wood and is a metal trailer on the outside. Both are good it is just a lot more expensive to build an aluminum trailer. also we have power jacks, power tongue jack, and a lot more bells on the Hill Country.

Thanks

Long Horn & Hill Country - 2

Just purchased a 2014 Hill Country 32FR, doing the walkthrough tomorrow. Excited yet nervous, we're first timers. Shopped for months, originally decided on the Longhorn 33BH, but the last 2014 with 50 amp service sold before we could finalize the deal.
The Hill Country came with so many more upgrades as standard items... Power tongue jack and stabilizers, fiberglass exterior vs the aluminum walls. Although it says it's an option, every one I looked at had 50 amp service wired for 2nd AC and the 2nd AC unit was also included. That was a big one here in the Texas heat. My only concern at the moment are the tank sizes. Hill Country has 40/40/40 Fresh/Grey/Black. The Longhorn comes with 54/80/40. Can I upgrade them later if the need arises?
Planning our first trip next weekend, will let you know how it goes.


Finally someone from San Antonio, which Explorer USA did you buy from? If you have any questions or need any help feel free to send me a message.

Went through the SA dealer. We met the GM, Charlie Flippin at the RV show in Feb. Really nice guy, talked with him for a long time at the show. Made us feel comfortable to ask all the questions we had, no aggressive sale tactics, no annoying phone calls, Couldn't buy at that time, but shopped around until we could. Believe we got the best deal we were going to get.
I hope the Service Dept is as good. Where do you take yours when needed?
Driving east on I-10 last week, I see they are building a new store in Seguin.
