Considering V-Cross Fiver

We are considering the purchase of a V-Cross 245VRD or 275 VRD and are looking for opinions from current owners, pros/cons.

HUH??? I thought V- Cross was a tongue pulled trailer; not a FIVER, hence the prefix designation "V-_____". I own a V lite- V front pull behind trailer There was a fiver with a very similar floorplan, as was the case when shopping for mine, also made by Flagstaff, but with no V prefix. Just never heard of it. Randy

WoW! That makes no sense! I can see where a V front end on a tongue pull is good due to the V covering the A Frame at the front of the trailer. But on a fifth wheel?! The area over the pin is already a large, roomy area! It almost seems as if they are actually losing room in the front due to the confines the V is forcing on to the design?

Seems odd but I guess if your name is " V-Cross" then every trailer has to be shaped like a V......

And before I get lit up with "it's the aerodynamics, stupid" please go and look at an aerodynamic shape chart, you will find that the V is very far down on the list. I do like the way they look tho!

There is an unofficial test where the V-5th wheel over a 54 mile trial used almost .5 gallon of fuel.
Also there are several 5th wheel models of the V-Cross.

I have owned the 245 5th wheel for about 3 months. No complaints so far.
