Question Cruiser RV?

I've just learned about Cruiser RV, only because I've found a used Viewfinder V-Nose that is in our price range. Its a 2011 22' model.

What kind of reputation does Cruiser have? Are they well made trailers etc? Anyone care to share their experience?

Pretty sure there will be a lot of mixed feelings and answers on their reputation. We just purchased ours in March and have absolutely loved ours, especially it being brand new. We have taken ours in a couple of times for items found during the PDI, as well as from our first couple of times out. Minor issues, minus one leak from the shower drain. Luckily it drained right out the bottom without touching any framework or interior objects, so no water soaked issues. From what I found during our research, they are a reputable company and stand by their work. The dealer we bought from has honored all the warranty work, which impressed us beyond our expectations. All plusses on our part, again, it was a brand new showroom model and we love it...

I have just never heard of this brand, and there are only two dealerships in the Houston vicinity that sell them. Each of the dealerships is 50 miles outside of downtown as well.

We bought a new 2013 Shadow Cruiser 26' bunkhouse model in November last year. We have taken it on a few trips, one of over 4000 miles/ 3 weeks, and so for no complaints. Tows easily, sets up quickly and has been comfortable for us two retirees. We think we will have no troubles living in it for three months this coming winter.

We own a 2011 Viewfinder 22RBDS and have done about 10,000 miles since we purchased it new. Colorado, Midwest and South Dakota trip all went well (even the mountains). The only real issue we had was the plumbing from the shower to the grey tank was improperly hooked up (pipe went too far into tank and would only hold 5 gal before backing up). Dealer repaired under warranty and now works great.
We love the quality of the unit and other than tweaking things to make them work/look better for us, the camper has required no repairs in three years.

We're going to go look at a 2011 V19K this weekend. I like the looks of the setup, we'll have to see how it works once we're standing in it.

We bought our 2008 Fun Finder X 240 about a year ago and have put several thousand miles on it and have been impressed with the quality. Everything still works like new and I have not had to repair anything on it.

For this particular trailer, yes. Y'all have eased my fears a bit, and this is a $30K trailer brand new, sooooo....... I'm considering it. I'm just going look at this point.

But considering it, is a giant step for me.

Nothing is wrong with used, he's just referring to the post I made stating that I adamantly did not want to buy used because I was/am scared to buy someone elses headache.
