2016 Crusaders

Went to look at them and I am not fond of exterior color and interior trim. Also why did they get rid of the slam latch where the generator goes under the 5th wheel hitch?

Seems they got really cheap in their MFG process? I looked at. 2014 seems to have been made a lot more solid.

Looked at 2016 294&295's not the cheap Ultra Lite Crusaders

We purchased a 2016 Crusader and love it. The couch seems defective because it rips the material underneath the cushions. We put a strip of non skid stuff used in cabinets under the cushions and that resolved that problem. Other Crusader owners posted the same problem. Apparently Prime Time use to install Lane furniture but changed in 2016. I took to dealer and are waiting to hear back from manufacture to see what can be done about the couch.

Sometimes I winder why they switch when they had furniture that worked and looked good. I am going to get a used one in 2017, need to get another season or two out of my Roo, but have looked at a ton of 5th wheels and I am set in the 2013-2015 Crusader 295 or 290 but Peter to have auto leveling on it, do the 2016's all have auto leveling?
Mood luck with yours and getting your issues corrected

We have a 2015 Crusader 315RST and the thing we like the least is the furniture. It is Lane and we think it is very uncomfortable. We have every intention of changing both the theatre seating and the sofa sleeper.

We have a 14 crusader 315 with lane furniture. I would say the exact opposite, we love the furniture. Very comfortable!

The 2015 has auto leveling I don't know about any older. What we liked with our 2016 over 2015 was that the kitchen sink in 2016 is stainless steel versus plastic in 2015. The vent with fan in the kitchen area was electric versus manual in the 2015. You would need a step stool to open and turn the fan on/off. The 2016 has a black tank flush system and the 2015 did not. The 2016 has the extreme arctic package and the 2015 does not. We don't plan any cold weather camping but felt the extra insulation would help keeping the coach cooler in warm climate.

Maybe I'll be able to sell the Lane furniture after we replace it.

Ours is a 2014 and we have auto leveling and a black tank flusher. I find it odd that you didn't have a black tank flusher on your 2015.
