Whereabouts are you located? How much are you asking for the Crusader? You have to realize our dollar sucks big time, as we are located in Whitehorse Yukon Canada.

The Crusader is a real nice unit, just check under the slide-outs for wear problems. Slide out /Underside wearing

Good evening, we were wondering if there are any concerns or issues with the fridge size/weight with a Crusader 325 RES. As we are undecided on the size. Any advise/comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Hey!, the fridge I think is a personal issue, we spend the entered summer in our 325RES with a 8ft cubic feet and had no problem and starting this summer we will be full timers. All depends how much you like in your fridge.

This is the same set up we have and works great. Dealer told us slider was not necessary with short bed due to front corner design of 5th wheel but I wanted the added protection. Love that the Pullrite slides by itself.

I have just purchased a 2014 325RES Crusader. Would like to know what kind of hitch some of you would recommend. I assume sine the GVW of the trailer is 16K I need at least a 18K hitch. Talking to a friend he recommends a slider hitch, even tho I have a 8ft box 2009 F350 Ford. Easier to back up when you slide the hitch back. Would like to know what your thoughts are. Thank you!

I believe your Crusader GVW is much closer to 14,000 lbs. 5'vr.

Your right grayfox. I got the wrong info and just got the specs for the trailer and your right. It says 14K, so I should be good for 16K hitch. Thanks again.
