V-Cross Owners

There must not be a lot of V-Cross RVs out there? There is not much
activity on the V-Cross threads.
We love ours, 2012, V-Cross 275, fiver, that we got in February 2012. We have had no problems with it, none, to date. We are going to the Coushatta Casino and Resort RV Park in Kinder, LA, for three days the week following Thanksgiving, arrive on Monday and depart on Thursday. They have a senior buffet on Tuesday for $5.50 and the park is $18 per night and it is, without a doubt, one of the best RV parks that we have ever stayed in.
All pull thru's and wide streets for access, free WiFi internet that is fast and free cable TV, very nice and clean bathrooms and showers. It appears to be very new and well taken care of with a new activity building on a small lake with new laundry and a computer room with a computer so that RVs can use for email etc.
Now if I can win some $s at the crap tables, oh at least the drinks are free. The pick you up at your RV and drop you at the casino 24/7, within a few minutes. Life is good! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Trails

Might try that casino RV park - we have stayed in a park in Sulphur, LA a half mile from I-10 that was better than most but would like to try some place else nearby.

We are proud owners of a 2011 V-Cross 28 vbh. This is our 1st tt after 5 years in a pop up. The only problem we had was the bolt in the awning bracket came out. When we bought it the dealer told us when we went camping the 1st couple times to make a list of things that are wrong or doesn't work. Needless to say we didn't have to do that. It has been a very nice tt for us. Hope everyone has had as much good luck with their V-Cross as we have. After reading some of the problems others have had with various models we feel very fortunate that ours has been pretty much trouble free. Happy camping and enjoy your camper.

As stated previously there doesn't seem to be many problems with these units and any we had were taken care of at the Indianna rally by Forest River. We have had our 2010 27VFK since late 2009 and are quite happy with it. Old Guys

We have the same model and year as 'Old Guys', bought also in late 2009. The reason for so little on the postings seems to be that we are all enjoying our well-built trailers. Total problems with ours? Replaced the tires under warranty in the spring of 2010 and the stereo/dvd at the same time. The only other problem I can find is that beer in the fridge evaporates.......or so I tell my DW.

Happy New Year

Hi, We have a 2012 Vibe 6501, 20 feet, just enough for 2 of us and the pooch. Upgraded from a 16 foot Funfinder last year. The quality of the Vibe is incredible. Camping up here starts April (still kind of cold) and we try to go to October.
We started pulling it with our Ford Ranger which worked well but we (I should say he) really wanted a new truck, so we now pull it with a Ford F150 and we don't even feel the trailer behind us! Planning a big trip to South Dakota in June. Any suggestions for campsites?
Happy Camping to all!!

There is lots to see in SD and the weather should be good by then. Were you live you must know about the weather. I would bet that you would like to be in Florida this time of year? Good Luck with you new TT.

Hi Fellow Winnipegger...

Where did you pick up your Travel Trailer from ? We picked up our Vibe 6504 unit in Grand Forks - Delivered by Couchs RV Nation. Had previously seen a 6501 model in Steinbach, Manitoba, however we wanted the unit with a slide out bunk for our daughters. (saved a few bucks buying it from the U.S.), as there was no one else in Winnipeg that stocked this Forest River product line.

As you can see from one of my other threads, I was not too happy with the suspension factory intstalled on these units. 3500 lb rated axle is a little to close for comfort for me on a single axle trailer. I made the mistake of not researching the specs a little closer prior to the purchase, however we are quite please with the unit otherwise. Found a local trailer manufacturer, - Saturn Industries, who were quite knowledgeable on upgrading the axle to 6K. I further upgraded the rims & tires to match the weight rating. Feel a little more confident on the road now.

Where abouts in Winnipeg do you reside. We are over in Norwood Flats.

It will be great to now a fellow VIBE 6500 series owner in Winnipeg. We can likely help each other out.

Do you plan on doing any mods to your unit ? I have done a couple of things to increase kitchen counter space and floor space.
