V-Cross Anyone?!

Hi y'all,

This is Tim and Traci and we are making the transition from 5th wheel to bumper pull. I think we have narrowed it down between Forest River V-Cross and Rockwood. I can find plenty of info on Rockwood but I can't seem to find much info on V-Cross. I'd like to know if anyone has one. And if so, what are some of the things you love/dislike, any issues you've had, do you recommend V-Cross? We have been specifically looking at the wife LOVES the big bathroom! hahaaa! We are also considering the 32VFKS bc of the huge kitchen. But I think the 32VFKS will be more room than what we need for just two of us and our dogs. We were also looking at Pilgrim but we found out that company has recently shut its that's a no go. We will be attending a RV Expo in the next few days and will hopefully see both Rockwoods and V-Crosses there.

If anyone has any info or recommendations, pls let us know.

Tim and Traci

::welcome sign: to the FRF. I have a Rockwood and we have been checking Into a V-Cross. The last time I saw one was at the Hershey RV show last fall, real nice unit. It is from what I understand is an up scale version of the V-lite. The frame is suppose to be thicker, It has taller ceilings It also has led tail lights the propane tanks are closed in like a 5th wheel, the floor is tongue and grove The one that I was looking at was a 38 footer front kitchen model from what I can remember I think it was 8,800 dry weight, It's a heavy one. I have the brochure at home from last years model on all floor plans.

I have looked at the on line pictures of the V-Cross. I think our V-Lite has more cabinets and is better looking. We got ours with cream interior. It may be lighter and not as stout. But, that could be a blessing with mpg.

If you like the big bath room and it only the two of you.Did you look at the Rockwood 8296SS and 8315SS? It was the bathroom in this model that sold us.It is so nice to be able to take a nice shower while camping and not have the shower curtain tangling up around you while you shower Good luck on whatever you choose any of those you referred to are some very nice TT

I have an 08 V lite just like the Hunts, and after looking at the V cross search (Type in Rockwood v cross trailers) They are virtually the same as the V lite- Same manufacturer, just a preference thing... Flagstaff or Rockwood. They do have a few more model choices, though. But I like mine! Randy

V-Cross has 7 floorplans and by looking at the floorplans the cabinets are limited. The only one that I can see that has more is the front kitchen model and that one is the T32V FKS 36' 5" long and has a UVW of 8,015 lbs and a GVW of 11,215 lbs. This is a stronger built unit then the V-lite and the Rockwoods. The V-Cross has 5/8 tongue and groove pylwood floors, 3/8 walk-on roof decking and 2x3 floor joists. The roof has 5" bow- trusse and an 8" powder coated I-beam frame.

Here are two web site:

thanks y'all for all the input. Traci and I attended the Hampton RV Show this weekend and after looking at the V-Cross we realized there is NO storage in the bedroom. That was a deal breaker since we will be full-timing for two years! We are now leaning towards Sandpiper. They seem to be very nice on the inside and much more storage too than the V-Cross.
