Crusader 335BHS

Hello Everyone,
My husband and I are looking at purchasing a Crusader 335BHS. We are playing the numbers game as we speak. I would like to hear everyone's opnion. The one 335BHS is a 2015 and there is a 2014 too. Is there a big difference is anything as far as the 2015 vs. 2014? The fridge is a concern to us. I am seeing things posted that some do not seem to be impressed. It doesn't cool properly and the fans seem to make noise. We were not impressed with the Norcold in the 2015 model. The 2014 seems to have nicer fridge. I would like to hear anything you have to say even if it is negative. This is a big purchase and we are coming off of a 2006 Prowler that has been very good. We are looking at getting rid of it mostly due to the layout. We need something different for our growing family. Thanks everyone for your help.
Becky

Our 2013 has been awesome with a few exceptions. The fridge has never been a problem. I have a remote thermometer on it and it runs a consistent 37-40 degrees even on real hot days. Yes it will warm up if you're in & out of it but quickly cools back down. Now the outside kitchen fridge is another story....you gotta be careful jacking that one too cold...I've already frozen beers with it over setting 6. Every rv has it's issues, but we felt this one had the most bang for the buck. Also liked the rather light pin weight. good luck!

Well we did it we are purchasing the 2014. Keep the replies coming!!! Thanks to all that replied so far. Great to know about the outside fridge. I don't think my husband would enjoy having a beer slushy.

Welcome to the forum and congads on your new trailer, lots of good reading(good and bad) I think you will like the layout I know we do,I have had 4 major things wrong with mine and still working on the last two as we speak(I just happen to have a real bad dealer) but as far as the fridge it cools to the mid 30's with no trouble but I favor Dometic over Norcold anyways.Look at our mods(me and EXGMtech's) we have done a few. Other then the sink and faucet(one of my mods) the outdoor kitchen is priceless for us use it all the time.Take care and happy camping

This is surely the place to inquire about your new home.....my latest gripe (and it's a major one) leads me to advise you to keep your front cap well waxed or covered to avoid the sun damage I've incurred.

Might I ask what you're pulling it with?

Thanks for the reply. Any products out there that help with sun damage on the champagne exterior?

We bought the 2014 Crusader 330MKS and could not be happier! Unless I was actually there to use it.
