Looks good, but still waiting for everything to be finished up. Alot of the floorplans etc are still not loaded. Plus they need to update stuff like the construction standards for the Crossroads TT, they have changed alot in the last 2 years.

OK, so why would you launch a new site that isn't complete right when the prime RV season is about to begin? I noticed a lot of info isn't loaded to the site yet....

I wonder if due to the amount of data that needs to be uploaded and/or refreshed if they are not completing it in stages?? Looks like they might have a new web guy on board...

Nor sure what they are going for but in my opinion the new site misses the mark. I get that they went for edgy and youthful, but pictures of the various RV's parked in the city? I don't get that...... Also the family forum is now the Fan Club(!) complete with the Rock On hand gesture logo. I know CR just launched the new ToyHauler for which the new theme fits, but it does not seem to have anything to do with he rest of the lines.

I love my SS Trail, but the new marketing effort makes the CR product look less than distinguished. My guess is new web developer / marketing guru who doesn't understand he product, audience or RV lifestyle.

My two cents.......

Jpamacorp,
I agree totally.
The web site is saying,,,Lets go RVing in an industrial park!

They should have done a complete launch of a new site after every feature was beta tested first....
Don't build it on the fly and add as you go.

Yes, I was about to cancel my reservation to camp Callaway Gardens this coming weekend and stay in town but then realized Atlanta city ordinance will not allow me to setup in front of the stadium, on a random city street, in the alley next to a dumpster or in an abandoned warehouse. So much or the inspiration provided by the new pics on the site.

By the way... why is the Slingshot parked next to the graffiti laden dumpster? Lol

I registered my complaint about the gangsta site.



I asked if their competitor designed the site?



It STINKS (edited for the family forum), to put it mildly.

I would recommend everyone being vocal about this if you disapprove of the new marketing direction. I know it may seem to not matter, but at the least it can and will affect the future value of you CR rig.

I bought my SS Trail in Nov of last year and can tell you that there is a good possibility I would not have, had the site been what it is now. I had never heard of CR and relied on the site to make me feel 'at home' with the brand. The new site makes the product look like a joke.
