2015 Crusader

Brand new here and new to the RV world so figure this is a good place to start. This is our new and first ever rig: 2015 Prime Time Crusader 370BHQ. 5 slide outs, dual AC, and most importantly, a bunk house in the back for my kids with a separate entrance and bathroom! Wife and I are beyond excited!

Wow what a setup! I would have loved to have a separate setup for the kids when we had our 5vr. Very nice rig you have!

Well, i knew it was bound to happen, just not this soon. Had to cut the roof of the house back to fit the 5er where the boat used to be, so had a friend come help and it turned out nice:




Then started the process of backing the trailer in which was way tougher than the boat. Long story short, on one of the passes to pull forward and re-align, I caught the fence. D'OH!:


Brand new coach, never been camped in, already gashed it. Somebody tell me a similar story to make me feel better please!

Millhouse961,

I can't speak for others, but I certainly feel your pain. Your coach is beautiful. It will serve you and your family well over the years. As owners of these beautiful rigs it hurts all of us to see the inevitable scratches and dings that happen as we use them. But happen they do! I haven't read on this thread, but on plenty others where someone shares their misadventure with others. You sir, are not alone by any measure.

I will add my insignificant (but not to us) story:

DW bought her lifetime dream car: a new Jeep Wrangler! The first weekend out we were just traveling on the local highway when a bottom dump truck launched a rock into windshield. DW was devastated. Fast forward a weekend, we had a new windshield, and DW is happy again. We've been married 45yrs. I am a firm believer in "Happy Wife...Happy Life". Therefore I am happy too.

This bad memory will fade as you build a lifetime of happy memories for you and your family in that beautiful new rig.


2015 Newmar Ventana 3636 (almost finished..we saw pics !!), Cummins ISB,
2014 JKU Wrangler, SMI AF1, Blue Ox Baseplate and Tow Bar

Really like the full body paint and getting the bunk model for the kids is brilliant. Had to get a ding sooner or later......just because its such a tight fit I would use a spotter with a two way radio.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, it does make me feel a little better. I actually was using a spotter and even from his angle all looked well. There was a large tree root on the other side that as the coach wheels rolled over, it tilted the body just enough to catch that fence. Working on a new project to modify the driveway side of the fence to swing open and give me a bigger spot to angle in to. As it stands it is nearly impossible to get the thing in there as I just don't have enough space to straighten it out.

Also, wife came home and saw the scratch and actually said it doesn't look at bad in person as pics, so that was nice to hear. I decided to wait a bit on fixing it until I get some more practice threading the needle into my spot as this is much more difficult to park than the boat I had previously and murphys law says I will scratch it again right after fixing it
