Can't speak to the new ones, but my 07 Cruiser is the best camper I've owned yet. I started out with an 05 Coachmen, then to a 10 Flagstaff, then to an 11 Blue Ridge fiver, and now backward to the 07 Cruiser. Crossroads has the best overall build quality of any of them, in my opinion. I go camping, and put it back in the garage. Hope yours serves you as well.

BTW, consider the extended warranty. Great peace of mind. (Don't be afraid to haggle on the price of it.) And, like others have said, do your time on the PDI. Don't allow them to try to rush you through it. You'll come nearer getting your problems fixed then and there than if you take delivery of it with problems.

Finally, don't sweat the small stuff. These aren't custom built homes. There will be some cosmetic stuff, fit and finish issues, and so forth. Make a list through the season, and if it isn't a major problem like a leak, bring it in at the end of camping season to have your laundry list addressed at one time.

Happy Camping!

Just to add to all great advice and comments,

Keep in mind your looking at a trailer that was built from the ground up on the concept of being as light as possible. Some of the components are lighter, and essentially, cheaper quality than components you'd find on a 12,000 pound trailer. With that said you have to be willing to deal with do-dads and pieces parts breaking from time to time. A good example are the water faucets. They are all plastic and feel "cheap", but thats to keep the weight and costs down. I've accepted that is the trade-off for us to have a 34 foot trailer with two slides that sleeps 10 people and having a dry weight of 6,200 pounds. Unheard of in the market before they made these ST's

Don't be too sure Mark - mine is 6858# empty and has the same cheap components as a light weight -

Short and sweet. I have an ST32BH and I love it. I should have bought a 28 because it would fit in more campgrounds but other than that I love my TT.

Never a Camping World customer again

We could have gotten the KZ (at a different dealer) for about $3000 less, but there were a few drawbacks and things that I WANTED that the KZ didn't have and the CR's did.

I wanted the leather looking interior. I wanted a seperate outside door from the bathroom. I wanted outdoor speakers and a Black tank flush as well as a power toungue jack, power stabilizer jacks. I wanted an outdoor shower. I also really liked the couch/bed in the CR compared to the KZ. As well as the Queen Bed in the front beedroom.

So friend's of ours went ahead and made the leap before us and bought the KZ. We continued our search and landed at the CR. We are scheduled to sign and pick up on June 15th...

My concerns and reservations:

* 2yr warranty vs 1yr warranty.
* the extra money for some of the "comforts/luxury" are they worth it?
* I've been reading a LOT of negative things about Crossroads (naturally AFTER I am just about to be a new owner!!!)


I guess I am looking for HAPPY Crossroads CAMPERS!

Sorry if I sound like a needy new camper (I am a NEW camper)

Thanks, Jim
We purchased a 2014 Crossroad Rezerve 26RB TT fro CW of Akron. We love our Crossroads RV with only minor issues with the trailer..... BUT we will NEVER purchase a trailer from Camping World again because it has been impossible is get them to do warranty work. I ended up picking up the parts in the fall of 2014 and doing the work myself. We also called in late May 2015 about our air conditioner not working, and both the Akron and Rossford Ohio stores told us the first appointments available to fix it was in July!!! I hope your Camping World experience turns out better than ours! We are getting the A/C fixed with the extended warranty we purchased from CW at Young's RV in Fremont.

For a sided 30+ foot trailer, 6,900# is considered light.

Like you, I loved some of the features of the ST. I also thing you can't beat the look of it on the inside and out. I purchased a 300BH at the end of April last year, and I have had nothing but trouble. Most of the things have been minor, but I have had my trailer back to the dealer 6 times already. I continue to have issues with my trailer, but Crossroads is now refusing to do anything about it since it is a month out of warranty. I previously owned a Jayco for 10 years and had 2 minor issues with it the whole time I owned it. Prior to buying my ST, I looked on this forum. I was a little skeptical, but I purchased it anyway. Now I am regretting it very much. I can't wait to go back to a Jayco, because the quality of the ST is terrible. I also am disappointed that Crossroads will not stand behind there product past the warranty. I think that says a lot about the quality.


Hope this was helpful.

Bert, I could only wish I had bought a 32BH, That trailer has the best layout! True state campgrounds are kinda tight but the room in there is awesome.

We love our 32BH but Bert is right, it has it's limitations on where it will fit! But on the flip side, we love all the room it has.

And Jimmerz - Our biggest complaint is the dark brown front cap has faded badly. Otherwise there have been a few issues that were not serious or hard to get fixed.

Go with the floor plan you like and what you feel comfortable towing.

We have a 32BH and love everything about it. My wife and I had thought at one point after we upgraded the truck that we might look at moving to a fifth wheel, but then decided why move up to another when the one we have offers everything that we want and have. We have had only a couple of minor issues so far, so I can say that we have been very pleased with our trailer and look forward to many more years in it.
