Hi From AZ

Hello all,

I actually joined this forum over 6 months ago but hadn't posted much. At the time I was looking at smaller TT's. Though reading alot of information here we ended up deciding to buy our 3rd RV 1st. So in that vein I upgraded my TV from a Ram 1500 to a 3500 and then went and ordered a 36' 5er. We just took delivery of our 5er on 12/29 and have had it out twice so far. We couldn't be happier.

I would like to thank all the fine folks here on IRV2 for the hours of reading and information you all have provided. It helped us ALOT in making our decision with the real world experiences and advise. I look forward to doing the same for others now that we have joined the RV world.

Here is a few pics of our new rig when we took delivery of in Dec:

Thanks!

With the windows open and the blinds up it's like having a screen porch. For a mid profile it really has a ton of storage, alot of room to prep/cook and the full size shower is fantastic. It tows like a dream but I am still getting used to the change in tracking from a bumper pull to a 5er.

I have to say that even though Prime Time Mfg is a new RV mfg co it's a stand alone division of Forest River staffed with alot of RV veterans. I had numerous conversations with senior folks at PTM and their customer service is the best I have ever seen regardless of industry. The fit and finish was superb and for the money these Crusaders get a lot of bang for the buck.

Hopefully when we take it out again next weekend (Kartchner Caverns) I can get some good interior pics. The 1st trip was a little dark due to weather and the trip last weekend we were having so much fun I forgot to take any!

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcomes and kind words.

I am off to set up the new satelite dish so I don't have to miss any hockey next weekend.

Dan
