Prime Time RV

Hello, I've seen on our local dealership's web site has a new model and manufacturer.
It's a 2014 Prime Time Tracer tracel trailer, 3200 bht.
We really like this floor plan, but my question is:
who is the manufacturer?
does anyone have experience with them?
Thank's, Mike

Hi, I bought a 2013 245 bhs last year. I have had several trips and although it's my first rv it has been great. No issues at all.
Very solid and well equipped but still light weight.

I had a 2013 tracer and have a 2014 lacrosse. Slide wear on the bottom of slide biggest issue.
Few bugs in both like any other rv.

Hey keystone,
I really would read the link I posted before for all the story. You might find it interesting!?
http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ing-45789.html
But to get the short of it..... My kitchen / entertainment slide wears the most. Its a laminated slide with darco wrap and tape. The dining slide has a wood bottom with darco tape on the ends that wears to but not as bad.
PT say it normal wear...but there nothing normal about it.
IMO it is a poor design.

Wow. This is worrying to say the least. What do you plan on doing? Is it fixable???
I spoke to my dealer who said my 1yr warranty had expired so I needed to call PT...

For now keep a eye on it
Upcoming rv shows in my area so I will be looking at slide- outs on units for some sort of wear strips. There is wear strips out on the market but not for primetime units per say.
