caps

I was told the paint issues was fixed on the 16 and 17s, but it could be a lie, the dealer told me that they were painted and cleared now, but mine stays under a shed when not in use anyway. they had a 331 sitting up there for about a thousand dollars more with the black front but it had a white paneling in the slide we just did not like

IIRC, Thor & Forest River have 86% of the rv market with Thor having the biggest share. Whatever the actual numbers you'd have a tough time throwing a rock in any campground & not hit a rv that Thor doesn't manufacture.

They way the dealer explained it to me was that prior to mid year 2017 Crossroads still ran their own shop under Keystone...then a transition occurred to where Keystone took over the manufacturing process and began a more hands on approach...take it for what its worth but certainly explains the major redesign. Alot of the interior features remained the same except for color changes in the wood. I like the newer front cap as it is significantly lighter and has a better paint scheme.

We had a Sprinter for nine years. The Sprinter was a step up in the Keystone line from the Springdale. We had friends with a Springdale for the same period of time. Neither of us had issues. The Sprinter had heavier cabinets, more cabinets. I think the sink was stainless steel where the Springdale was plastic. Honestly I would have bought the Springdale if it was the right layout and price.

I'd go with the one you like and can afford. Any RV can have problems. If it's the Sunset Trail that makes you both happy, then that is probably the right choice. If you are getting a second A/C, is it a 50 amp unit? Also, usually a second unit added at the dealer is a meat cooler, not ducted.

Well,(that's a deep subject ) I guess I'm taking the plunge tomorrow,
I'm going from a 38ft jayco eagle 5er to a 330bh Sunset Trail, loved our 5er it just got where it was way too heavy(to hard to stop), hopefully we will be able to venture out a lot further this way, I hope we like it, been years since I owned a wagalone

Curious what you are pulling your new trailer with and is it the same truck you pulled your fifth wheel with. We are getting ready to move up to a Cruiser CR347 from our ST300RK. Love our 300RK but need more room. Have a 2016 HD2500 crewcab Duramax. Pulls trailer like its not there. Hope it will pull a fifth wheel as good. Do you think I will have braking issues like you had?

I pull with a ram 2500, I had a ram 3500 that I should have kept but that's another story, a 12k pound camper is heavy, its not going to stopnear as good as your sunset trail, I picked mine up yesterday and I actually slid the tires on it first thing adjusting break box, my 13k 5er u could turn the break box wide open and it would not slide the tires., its going to big difference for you. but pulling wise that duramax should pull it great
