The only Rewood dealer in northern CA is Toscano's RV in Los Banos, CA, which is off of I-5. I purchased my Redwood there. They are a good dealer and have a very good service department.

We have had our 36RE since November and love it. Had a 2010 Carriage Cameo prior to this and we are just as pleased. Some minor issues but nothing of concern.

You can also get warranty work done at any Crossroads RV service center.
Here is a link to find one near you: CrossRoads RV Service Centers, Authorized Centers RV Repair, CrossRoads Warranty Repair, Get your CrossRoads RV fixed

Brian Emmons at Redwood RV is the person to contact if you have problems and need to get authorization for service work done at other dealers. He's a great help but very busy so be prepared to leave a message at wait for a return call. (574)457-7800

Not all Crossroads dealers carry Redwoods and therefore aren't aware that they are authorized to do warranty work. I discovered this while traveling through North Carolina. I gave the service manager Brian's contact info and they got it straightened out.

I for one can truly understand why he is so busy.

Lippert pretty much makes everything on almost any fifth wheel. I only know of New Horizons that makes their own frame. I live full time in a Redwood 36re and havent found one problem with anything Lippert made. With few exceptions, pretty much all mid and low range fifth wheels are cheaply made. Such things as hardware, faucets, toilets, carpet, even the stove, are cheaply made to maximize profit. That's just the way it is.

We've been full-time in our 36FL for almost a year now with no major issues. A thermostat on the water heater went out and one of the strings on a day/night shade frayed but otherwise it's been a solid unit.
We move weekly so every system gets worked out on a regular basis. So far so good. Even the Marathon tires that everyone seems to knock are holding up fine.

I wouldn't say that the components of our Redwood 36RE are "cheaply made". We've been very happy with the quality of the faucets, cabinets, etc. The only problem we've had with Lippert made products are the wheel bearings. We've had two of them break while were on the road. Although, we are flirting with the max capacity on our unit.

Redwood 36RL Experience

We purchased a new Redwood 36RL, from Lifestyles RV, in Grain Valley, MO and just returned from a two week trip with this RV. The RV systems operated trouble free!! Our Redwood dealer was very polite and knew the Redwood inside and out.

It is our fourth RV and by far the best. We began reviewing 5th wheel RV's at trade shows and visits to dealers for the past year. We also purchased an on line buyer's guide for RV's. The guide was a lot of help in understanding all the issues we needed to consider and helped us in asking better questions. As an retired EE I was also interested in how well the electrical systems were installed. Redwood does an outstanding job with the construction. Very, very impressive. It is a true residential RV, bar none.

In the end, the Redwood 36RL was our first choice. We love the large open rear window view in the rear as we back up to the lake in the state park. What a view to awake to in the A.M.

We also visited the Redwood factory in Syracuse, Indiana. The quality and attention to detail was very apparent along with great employees.

During the two week "checkout" temperatures dipped near 10 degrees F. We were as comfortable as a bug in a rug so to speak. The two heat pumps work great down to the mid-40 degree range (saving lots of propane) then we switched over the the furnace to assure that the holding tanks did not freeze.

Our rig includes the Redwood packages and many of the options including the paint option. This week the 6.5 KW Onan Generator, washer and dryer and the second awning are being added at the dealer. We will head back out to the lake in late January to continue spotting eagles and check out the new options.

Best regards,
Bob and Carol Morley

I have a 2013 Cedar Creek and the Domestic heat pumps will run down to 30 degrees outside then at 30 the rear hp control kicks over to the gas furnace automatically. It work great in the 30s also.
