Looking for New - Crusader maybe?

We currently own a 2005 Arctic Fox 27-5L and are now looking for a newer or maybe new fifth. Yesterday I visited a Prime Time dealer who had several Crusaders on the lot. I am not familiar with Prime Time as a manufacturer since manufactures come and go, get bought out or just go our of business.

Question is, does anyone have any opinion when it comes to this manufacturer? Recommendations for others to look at?

We are satisfied with what we have and are in no hurry to move to another rig until we find one we think is just what we want.

I have yet to search for a Prime Time forum so that is next.

Have fun,

David

Forest river forums .com. Then to a sub forum for prime time. You will find a lot of information. We own a 2014 Crusader 335BHS Travel Edition and could not be happier.

Good Luck.

I've looked at them at two recent RV shows. They seem decent, but after owning an AF I think you'll be disappointed. AF's are just a more solidly built 5th wheel. The may not have the bling that attracts buyers but the overall feel is better. I showed my a wife how the stub walls in an AF were rock solid and how other brands you could grab them with your hand and wiggle them.
IMO I would look at OutdoorRV or Grand Design. Grand Design even states on their site that they're rated for extended stay.

Thanks for the info Cumminsfan.

Last I checked, Northwood made their own frames. Others second source as far as I know. I will look at the Grand Design and Outdoor. The AF we have is second hand and well used which is another reason for wanting to get a newer unit.

The fit and finish on our 2005 AF leaves something to be desired. The new ones seem better but are much heavier. We are just starting to look and are in no great rush so will enjoy the hunt.
