CrossRoads Slingshot

Looked at a 2011 23 ft. CrossRoads Slingshot today. Liked it but want to get feedback from anyone who has experience with this or similar CrossRoads TT's.
Thanks.

Thanks.
We looked at the slingshot at the rv show in Cleveland. We liked it but then we saw the reserve sunset trail. Had a little better quality interior and added all the power options. I.E. power awning, front power jack and front an rear power stabilizers. Also added an out door grill. Interior it added a fireplace and leather. We got the 27BH. Was almost identical to the slingshot in the same sizes. I don't remember, do the slingshots have a slider? Our has a short slide. 12" travel. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the input. We want to stay under 5,000 lbs. even though our tow vehicle (Nissan Frontier) says 6,500. Also want to keep length under 25ft. so that limits us. Have looked at a lot of TT's but just really liked the feel of the Slingshot (does have a slide). We were told by salesman that this unit has been discontinued. Still checking that out.

We were camping in pymatuning adventure resort this past weekend and saw a frontier pulling a 29' slingshot. So it can be done

That's interesting. A 29' is way above the recommended weight for a Frontier, not sure why they would attempt that. The dealer here still has the slingshot, but we are now thinking about trading the frontier for something with a little more pulling power. Also, still want to find out if the slingshot has been discontinued. Thanks for the input.

We are now in our 2nd camping season with our 2011 Slingshot 29BH. We purchased this because of the weight limitation of our tow vehicle at the time (since upgraded to a bigger TV). This unit weights in at 4200lbs empty (about 4700lbs with our gear on it). The Slinghshots are great units if you are limited on the amount of weight you can tow, and would definitely recommend them.

Hi looked at used 19ft to use with our small family limited with size d/t towing but we are outside bodies. Have these held up well for you?
