Our 335BHS ('13) has served us well, biggest issue was the front cap fade which was re painted n/c. Had to replace all 4 tires as 3 failed on a long trip this year.
You get a lot of bang for the buck with the Crusader & light weight too!

Welcome!!!

Welcome to the group. Had a few startup issues with our 290rlt that were resolved. Replaced crap-stock tires on our first trip due to all 4 separating. Next trip, spare had chunks hanging off, despite covered parking. Replaced that. No issues since. Make sure you have decent tires! Ours were replaced under warranty, and I paid extra for better ones.

We really like ours, hope you do too!

Smile Really like it...

DW and I picked up a 321RES last fall, started full timing this spring and enjoy both the travel and our Crusader. Settled on it after the same exhausting things you did, and have not looked back. Have fun.

We have a 2014 351 REQ PT Crusader Touring Edition...absolutely LOVE it. We have yet to see a better floor plan for our needs. The dual bathroom vanity sinks and spacious change area sold us, and so did the 'atrium'...but everything else is great too!

Yes, there's a few of us our there. We have a 2015 MY 325RES and really like it, great floor plan and we get a bunch of compliments on it.

I hope we got the bugs our of it last year, luckily under warranty, fortunately, no problems at all this year.
It is in as I type for the known problem of the front cap oxidizing or fading and although out of warranty, repairs (at least at this point) are being covered by Forest River or Prime Time.

Early issues last year were a failed bedroom slide motor.
A failed right rear leveler, right rear tail light electrical corrosion.
Replaced 2 LP/CO monitors
Had a leak above the entrance door.
One of the (White) Low Water drain valves leaked
Shower door handle fell off

Enjoy your new toy !!!
Mike

Happy campers

We have owned our Crusader 294 for a year and a half now. Absolutely love this layout and could live in it full time. Having an issue with apparent air lock in water system but have been working around it. Only complaint was poor mattress which we replaced and now sleep well.

Roll on!

What are the symptoms of this problem. A lot of good people on here may have a solution.
