Some of you may remember my story I posted a few weeks ago (we upgraded from Lacrosse to Crusader 315 RST) Goodbye LaCrosse.....Hello Crusader!
We took a shakedown trip a couple of weeks ago to a CG near our house. While I understand I am running a huge risk of jinxing myself I must proclaim we had zero issues, ZERO. Our Lacrosse had 1 minor issue after delivery that was an easy fix. So far I can do nothing but praise Primetime on their craftsmanship.
The desire to upgrade was all mine, my wife was fine with the Lacrosse. After staying a weekend in the Crusader she absolutely loves it. It is a great layout for us (late 30's, no kids)
The only cons I can list about the trailer are the lack of nightstands next to the bed and the Norcold fridge.
The fridge seems to be a downgrade from most of the other trailers. Our Lacrosse had the large double door Dometic that had the multiple control options and thermometer. The downgrade in size is not a problem. We never used up all of the space in the large fridge, it was huge. But the Norcold has 1 button, on or off and that is it as far as I can tell. We boondock 5-6 weekends in a row during deer season and I prefer to run the fridge on gas all weekend when the AC is needed (October/Early November) The only way to force the fridge to gas is to unplug it in the outside panel. I was surprised that Primetime went that route when everything else in the RV is of decent quality. Oh well, definitely not a deal breaker.
We are anxiously awaiting our next trip on Memorial day weekend. We are headed about 4 hours west to the Texas Hill Country for a getaway. Hopefully our great luck continues!
