Description:

I’ve often grouped the thoughts I’m trying to impart when selling something along the lines of the Sergio Leone’s movie title starring Clint Eastwood, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I have stuff for The Good and The Bad but I don’t think anything qualifies for The Ugly.


First the facts:

        ;        You’ve prolly looked up a lot of info about this unit so no need to replicate info here, but I will say that what sold my wife (SWMBO) on this model was the dual-sink in the bathroom and the way the kitchen island was configured to separate the kitchen from the living area. I liked making her happy. We have two dining chairs, one recliner, and one couch to complete the living area.


 


Here’s what NADA has to say about pricing:

Here’s what I found on RVtrader as of this writing:


$29,995 Used Fifth Wheel In Tulsa, OK 74107


$42,900 Negotiable - Used Fifth Wheel In Bloomfield, NM


2015 Primetime Crusader 351REQ $37,750


There were a ton of options in the list to add but frankly I don’t know what was standard and what was an option, e.g., the fireplace? Aluminum wheels? 12 cu. ft. residential fridge? We don’t have the second A/C unit.


Why are we selling? For three years we made a trip from NY to FL. Luxury for two people and two rescues. They were great trips but now we live in GA. We’re already that much closer and can do shorter trips now. Like Okefenokee is < 1 ½ hours away. We got something 10’ shorter. 


The Good


1.      We added toppers over the slides. That was $1,800 just in parts.


2.      Washer/dryer. My wife is a germophobe and doesn’t wanna use public washers. This was an $1,100 expenditure in parts, not including a waterproof pan with a drain for under the unit and the venting of the dryer to the outside. Kinda a sweet set-up.


3.      We added the JT Strongarm Stabilizer System to the rig. I think the longer the rig the more this is needed. I hated laying in bed and having the mongrels run around at the other end of the RV and shake the contents of my stomach around. This system removed 80-90% of the wiggle. I loved it.


4.      Extra freshwater, two grey water, and black water extra tank support. We planned a trip (that we had to cancel) that necessitated us having to carry fresh water between sites. From what I’ve read on the forums, some RVs are not really engineered to bounce hundreds of pounds of water down the road from stop to stop. I crawled up into the underbelly and could see that the tank mounting might not be able to handle that kind of robust usage. So I asked our really talented local welder to add supports underneath all of the holding tanks. That was an $800 option, well-spent, IMHO.


5.      After the ubiquitous China-bomb blowouts, we now have five (5) Goodyear Endurance tires mounted with a total of one NY-FL-NY vacation and transport to our new home in GA. I think that weighed in on the money scale at $750.


6.      We replace the three-step, stock, hanging (wiggly) steps with a nice four-step Brophy unit that reaches to the ground and is adjustable. (We’re gonna replace the nice, fold-down steps on our new rig with these exact stairs.)


7.      Extra basement access door. This is easier to see than describe but I noticed that there was a ton of unused potential storage area in the basement area but no easy way to access it, so I added another small door. It Is located between the driver side basement access door and the shore power connection. You’ll have to try to find it in the pics. I use it to store all my emergency tire changing equipment. It also gives me access to other areas normally not accessible. I had to clean up and reroute all sorts of wires and hoses. Really nice addition.


8.      Similarly, by cutting one panel on one side of the basement, and also adding hinges to another panel in the basement, I made access to other areas, useful for storage.


9.      I added extra LED lights with their own switches in different areas of the basement for better lighting. Another nice addition.


10.   I upgraded the plastic kitchen faucet to a nice stainless-steel model.


11.   I also added a charcoal filter under the sink for selective filtering. This was an overkill whole house model with an expensive filter that will prolly never need to be changed. I think the filter alone is $70.


12.   Great electric outlet addition. We would sit at the table with our dueling laptops, plugged into the outlet on the kitchen island, and play catch with our laptops as the dogs went running by, snagging the power cords. That lasted exactly one trip. I installed an outlet in the pedestal base of the table and ran surface-mount wiring along the outside wall. Clean.


13.   In the bedroom, I added reading lights. The ones they have are mounted overhead and are great if you are sitting up when reading and your significant other is doing the same. Otherwise, they’re blinding when you lay down to read, like I do, and keep your mate awake if they’re not reading at the same time. Of course, new rigs have this option. Not on this one at the time. I think the manufacturers are copying me.


14.   There is a blank piece of wall when you come into the RV to the right of the control panel. I took two stained-glass doors and added them to that space. They can be seen from both the entrance way and the bathroom. I added small LED lights to act as nightlights. Looks great.


15.   I added clear shelves to the entrance way side of the stained-glass panels. We use them to hold our keys and cell phones.


16.   I added a USB charging port to the base shelf in the stained-glass area. They seem to be standard now but not when I installed it.


The Bad


1.      One of the outside speakers doesn’t work. No clue.


2.      There is a crack in the gelcoat in one spot. Not sure why that happened. Added silicone sealer to it.


3.      There are a couple of scrapes to the metal body panels under the gelcoat siding. Gonna try to touch them up, if possible.


4.      Prime Time screwed up one of the grey tank handles. It broke. I made a field repair that works fine.


5.      Rear bumper tire holder. There’s something not confidence inspiring about the part that holds the tire to the holder. I carry it in the bed of the truck. I was looking into one of those underbelly mounting kits but it would get all sorts of road abuse.


 


6.      Kitchen floor. “Get Corel”, my birthmother said. “It’s great for RVing”, she said. Yeah. Great. Until the cabinet opens en route and a plate smashes on the hard counter surface. Recall that the name is Corel GLASS, as in shatters into a gazillion pieces, including the one that ended up under the slide under the fridge that went unnoticed. That is until you slide it in and out again whereby it shreds the flooring. The replacement flooring is not the same. (I don’t think this qualifies for The Ugly category but it would have rounded out the metaphor.)
