Smile Want to buy a quality unit. Need your help!

Hi! I am researching new RV's and came across the Crusader 290RLT. I own a Cougar 5th wheel and it has been super. Crusaders have a bit more fresh ideas and I am considering "jumping the fence". I am acquainted with some of Forest River's other models which includes a new Wildcat that my son purchased this year (number of issues). Can someone assure me that this Prime Time line is the quality I am used to? Any issues? Any superior points? I need your help here!

I guess you're implying that your Cougar is built better than any offering of Forest River. I wouldn't have reached that conclusion browsing on Cougar (Keystone) isn't any better than any of the RV manufacturers. Your experience may be good but I wouldn't imply that there no unhappy Cougar owners.

I've have nothing but good things to say about our Rockwood 5th wheel but I know that they build a 'dud' every once in a while. Unfortunately that seems to be true of the RV quality isn't consistent.

I don't believe Prime has a better build quality than other other manufacturer. I can say from being on this forum, that they are quick to respond to owners issues and seem to have better after-sale customer service than any other FR product line.
