Hi Everyone...





My wife and our 2 boys (4 and 2) are looking at getting the Sunset 26BH Reserved as we saw it at the RV Show in Edmonton and loves it! I've been doing as much research into TT as possible since this will be our first. My research has pointed to CrossRoads as one of the brand to trust.

The other trailer we are looking at is the Zinger 26BH. However, I like the weight of the Sunset since we will be towing with our 2010 Ram 1500 TRX. The biggest difference in terms of construction is wood frame on the Zinger and Alum frame on the Sunset. What I like a lot from CR is that they use clips and bolts to joint their alum posts.

I decided to go and visit Roadmaster RV in Leduc, AB which was at the show displaying the ST26BH Reserved. Upon speaking to the Salesman, I was informed that all new Sunset Trailers will be made with laminated walls. I was surprised. Anyone can confirm this? I'm not sure how to response to this, partly because CR used to publish a booklet on Trailer Construction and one of the key point was laminated walls vs CR's Gorilla's Cage system. So does this mean the newer Sunset will be subpar in quality as compare to the older one? Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance, and I thoroughly enjoyed this forum, lots of great info from lots of great member.

Hi ,we have an 09 St 27RB . as i understand it , my walls are hung and than have the laminite applied to the walls . i know we looked at a 2010 and the quality was not the same , so we bought the leftover 09 . they also changed the warranty from 2 years bumper to bumper plus 5 year structural warranty if you have the roof and structure inspected by an authorized Crossroads dealer, to a1 year warranty . perhaps you can find a dealer that may have some leftovers . better price and better quality . this is not to say the Sunset Trail is not a good unit .we love ours . just throwing my 2 cents in the pot . what ever , good luck and welcome

Just thought... Check out the Cruiser CTX TT series you'll get a lot of the ST items plus some more including the framing. Maybe not the fireplace, but so what it's not a fireplace anyway.Edited by: salda01

We picked up our new 2010 Sunset Trail 31 QB from Able RV. Very excited. Shakedown cruise the weekend. Can't wait. Edited by: CAdling2696

Did you buy the ST26BH?

What are you planning on pulling it with?

Are you getting a sway control hitch or just WD?

We are in Calgary and looking at the same unit?

Any comments?

Hi Egrum....since this would be our first trailer...and we are a little nervous about hauling a large unit and etc...we decided for this summer we are going to rent a trailer and try it out....and we have...we book a trailer with Carefree RV for a week this summer and it will give us a good taste of what to expect.





If all goes well, we will be coming back to seriously purchasing this unit...

We have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 3.92 gear ratio (TRX Model 4X4)....has tow capacity of about 9950 lbs...

We thought about a sway control hitch...heard lots of good thing about it...another friend has the equilizer hitch....I'll have to ask to see if he likes it.

So we are newbies to RVing... this summer will give us a good taste of what to expect when we take our rental trailer out for a week...we really like what we saw in the ST26BH!

I think in Calgary...Guarantee RV carries the ST26BH...we looked at the one from Roadmaster RV in Leduc. Lacombe RV also carries the ST26BH, they didn't have any in stock but was suppose to have them on order. Good luck.
