Purchase advice

My TV is a 08 Tundra with a rating of 11,400 lbs

I just passed an RV dealer that showed me a used 2016 Crossroads Sunset Trailer Grand Reserve 33BD, said it was 2 weeks old when it was turned back in, which I don't believe because although it is in amazing very low used shape, I can tell they had hung a TV, etc.... Anyway, they offered me a price of 32,500 for it. I seem to find them on the net in very far off states for about 35,000 new. I'm torn between that trailer and the open range 310 BH which advertises for about 36/37k new. Wondering if I can talk the dealer on the open range down to 33ish.... The guy told me that the Crossroads is a "high end luxury RV that retails for above 50k and comparing it to open range prices is not fair due to the open range being a cheaper, lower quality item." seems very salesman ish statement to me but I decided to come ask the experts. They both have pros and cons on what my wife and I like and dislike, but is this a deal I should not pass up? I know it has some extras the open range doesn't, like power stabilizing jacks etc... I'm just so torn. Please if anyone has this brand and can give me some honest feed back I would greatly appreciate it. My wife and I kinda have to make this decision by Monday LOL.

Well I don't know anything about the trailer except what I read on their website, however I do have a 2008 Tundra with the full tow package. I tow a creek side 23dbs and its maximum weight is about 8000 lbs, I can't imagine comfortably towing that trailer you are looking at with my Tundra. I am not a weight weenie but you might want to try pulling a 10,000 lb trailer on a short trip before you plunk down a wad of cash on that heavy of a trailer. Do you know anyone who has a trailer you could try towing? For reference my trailer pulls on the flat in 5th gear and on any hill it downshifts. I have a really good weight distribution hitch with sway control. If I got a bigger/heavier trailer I would go with a 3/4 ton pickup. Nice looking trailer by the way.

I currently have a trailer that is heavier than that Crossroads Grand Reserve and It actually pulls it just fine.... no problems at all. So I'm comfortable going to this trailer, being aluminum instead of wood, it is an upgrade yet weighs a little bit less.

I have no idea of the trailer, but just make a low ball offer and walk away, and see what happens, If you have to have that unit, they have you by the Bal!!!!s

"The guy told me that the Crossroads is a "high end luxury RV that retails for above 50k and comparing it to open range prices is not fair due to the open range being a cheaper, lower quality item"

Lots of questionables in this statement....
